Why would anyone sell something so personal? As for her claim regarding sleeping with Charles in 1992, IMO, coming from someone who would stoop so low as to sell the letters in the first place, I would very much doubt it.

I'm sure they were verified by handwriting experts before anyone would cough up the big $.

Hmm i agree with you.
Something that personal i wouldn't want to sell, i wouldn't even want to talk about. Any idea who Charles was dating in 1992?

"British Esquire has declared Prince Charles the world's best-dressed man. "He is perfectly turned out in a double-breasted suit," they claim. "Admirably, the prince keeps his wardrobe in appropriate style: we're told he has a room laid out like a tailor's shop."
I have to say that Prince Charles tend to look better in the red uniform than any other.

Prince Charles love letters for sale on eBay - Yahoo! Canada News

I agree with Al bina. The dealer selling the letters has had them in her possession for 7 years. The above article does suggest to me there is possibly more to the story.

People do desperate things in desperate times. We don't know the circumstances behind the lady selling her letters in the first place.

They do, including steal, but it doesn't make it right. Anyone who would sell such a personal thing in the first place have questionable characters, those who buy them are even worse. Still I expect there are people who would sell their Granny!

With all due respect ... it is easy to determine what is wrong/right in any situation for an on-looker and make judgments on appropriateness. At the same time, the person, who sold the notes, is entitled to dispose of his/her own property as he/she sees fit.

Indeed, it just goes to show that we all have different standards on what is correct or appropriate.

Anger over Prince Charles' love letters
ABC News
It appears to me that Ms. Janet Jenkins failed to unequivocally tell the buyer not to re-sell the letters/notes in question and reinforce her wish by drawing up a legal document of some kind that would have prevented Ms. Carrol from re-selling the things in question.

It seems that Charles had a lucky escape from this woman. If she had in fact sold them on the understanding they would never be sold on, she would have a copy of the agreement and none appears to be forthcoming. The gleeful statement that she has more is indicative of the womans character, IMO. Whilst there is no doubt Charles was friends with this woman, she has seemingly produced nothing to substantiate her claim that they were having sex at all, let alone in 1992. Unless the letters are a tad more intimate, they sound the sort of letter one sends to opposite sex friends.

The media seems to be making more of, what is to me, typical British humour, especially regarding the remark about hotel rooms. One can imagine Charles making this sort of remark to give the girl a giggle, not as a serious 'Oh My'!

Quite right, glad she was history before making history herself.

It's actually the Sun so-called 'newspaper' that claims that she claims that they slept together in 1992 - not quite the same thing. Especially as I don't think he went on any visit to Canada or the USA in 1992 to allow them to have met up again.

He didn't need to travel to Canada or the USA. She went to Highgrove in 92 and that's the last time they slept together.

I struggle to believe that as he was not yet officially separated from Diana, she would have stayed at Highgrove, without the press or Diana making it an issue.
