The Most Memorable Royal Event of 2005

What would everyone classify as "the" royal event of 2005?

In a year marked by the deaths tragic deaths of two reigning monarchs and more than a dozen royal births, the enthronement of Prince Albert of Monaco and the celebration of Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands' Silver Jubilee, how will you remember this royal year?

To review the year in depth, visit these two posts: 1 and 2 from our December 2005 Newsletter.

This poll will close on January 31, 2006.

I think it has to be the wedding of Prince Charles to Camilla Parker-Bowles. I've been following the Royal Family for quite a long time and I have never seen Camilla as the evil person she's painted out to be. I was thrilled to hear they were getting married and it was so surreal - everybody said it couldn't and wouldn't happen. And it did. And now she's proving to be a brilliant member of the Royal Family as well as making Prince Charles happy. So my vote goes to the wedding. I think that all those events are memorable but for me, that's the one that will scream 2005.

I also voted for the Charles and Camilla wedding. Since some years I wanted them to end up married and when they finally announced they where going to take the step I was relieved they finally dared to do it. It took a lot of courage.

I was also delighted by the birth of the Lilleprinsen and Leonor and I think Beatrix did an awesome job during her jubilee! The Queen just seemed to have so much energy, I think she really enjoyed 2005!

I choose other.
The other being the ceremonies attended by the members of the Spanish Royal family to honor victims of the war, the victims of terrorism and the firefigther victims of the forest fire.

I love babies so I went with the birth of Infanta Leonor. The news that they might abolish male primogenure in Spain because of her birth is really special.

i vote Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowler's wedding

but im really admire of Prince Charles but his second wife really nice person and many people know that Camilla been adult affair with Prince Charles for more than over 30 years but i dont like Camilla.

but im really like to story about Prince Charles and late Diana,Princess of Wales best than Camilla! but many people wanted to low-profiles follow Princess Diana's death in 1997 that not fair for me.
