Concerning Chales and Romania, Charles loves Romania, in his own words. I read an article (more than one) about his love for the architecture and people of Romania. He owned (or still owns) a small house there (it's really a modest home, one would not expect to find a prince there, from its outward looks), and is an expert on the unique architecture of Romania, which is truly unique, reflecting the many ethnic groups which lived there. I expect Crown Princess Margarita knows these things too. I wonder if the young heir Nicholas does? If not, Charles and Margarita should start educating him. the article I read also showed the warm affection between Charles and Margarita, who did grow up in England, didn't she?

I was in the process of moving 20 posts to the 'names' thread when I lost access and couldn't get back in for 30 minutes or so. During that time both threads were caught in a sort of no man's land, but I'm back in and it's (largely) fixed now.

Thanks! That was really maddening to me, so I can't imagine what it was like for you.

Are you seriously writing to UsWeekly multiple times to correct them?

I see readers correcting them online occasionally. But to be brutally honest, the type of people who read USWeekly on a regular basis generally do not know the difference between a princess and a Royal duchess.

And they don't care. The editors know this, so they won't change a thing.

While we're all musing, anyone else musing that Freddie and Sophie Windsor's baby arrives before baby Cambridge? That baby is due about August 8th or thereabouts.

Can just see the headlines now: NEW WINDSOR BABY IS HERE.

Not only did Charles state numerous times his admiration for Romania, but he did more for the country - initiatives to protect the cultural heritage, agriculture etc. - than either Margarita, Prince Nicholas or King Michael of Romania. Margarita and Nicholas have been living in London and only last year did Prince Nicholas step in Romania for the first time ever. Besides, Prince Nicholas - now in his late 20s, I believe - does not speak one iota of Romanian!

If baby Cambridge is a Leo, he will not easily get along with his Cancer dad and Capricorn mom. It would, therefore, be better if he were born before the 23rd.

OMG!!! How much longer people! This waiting game is driving me absolutely mental. So now the due date is the 19th? I thought it was the 13th. That would mean she could have the baby between now and who knows when. Well, lets cross our fingers and toes that it is soon. And Camilla said she thought it would be by the end of the week. Well its the end of the week. :)

There has never been an official due date, just dates the press has made up.

Camilla said she hoped the baby would be here by the end of the week, not thought. There is a difference.

It won't come to that. Surely by this time next week the child will be born and safely at home with his/her parents, and this overblown circus will have come to an end.

Last time I checked... The Prince of Wales lacked skills in Romanian. So if this is the argument for Charles being the rightful heir/king of Romania, he has work to do... Lol

The last I checked Charles was the Heir to a certain throne in Great Britain and I think he rather have that one.

O.k., o.k., so its not the end of the week until tomorrow. I must have misunderstood the end of the week thing with the DoC. Well Im going to say she will have this baby on the 24th then. Dont know why. I am now going to stay away from here for at least an hour!

I'm a little lost here. Why is there so much discussion about Charles and Romania in this thread? I can't see where it started.

And male-line grandchildren and the children of Prince William - great-grandchildren of Elizabeth II (not Harry's children though).

There is a detailed discussion of titles and styles in the Styles and Titles thread - Questions about British Styles and Titles

Gee, sorry. Perhaps some of you should in fact visit the thread less frequently. This is my first time in six months, I've been able to contain my interest.

I won't ask any more questions or post any more twitter feed though, so don't stay away on my account.

I have no idea how it started. All the sudden there was a post I think it started at post 3394
