Jo, my post was intended as a tongue in cheek response regarding Duke Franz's position as the de juré Stuart representative and heir.

Warren, of course I got that , but still I think it would be unfair to ask the duke to cover a debt when the other Stuart-line got the assets of Charles II....

Last week, the resignation of Charles's private secretary, Elizabeth Buchanan, was attributed to Camilla's inreasing assertiveness, but officials at Clarence House are keen to assure me that the Duchess played no part in her departure. "In fact, both the Prince and the Duchess were very sad that Elizabeth decided to leave and made strenuous efforts to persuade her to stay," says their spokesman."
