I thought everyone knew that Charles made sure to wear his wedding band from his first marriage to Diana just behind his signet ring until he announced his engagement to Camilla and then he took his band off.

I distinctly remember hearing quite a few times that he did wear his wedding band by his signet ring until his engagement to Camilla too.

Thanks for posting the pictures Dman. The two rings are very easy to see in them.

Now... the portrait and the rose thing I find a bit over the top and would really doubt the credibility of that report. Perhaps there was a portrait of her elsewhere where the boys would have lived with Charles though. I very much doubt that Charles would do any less than be supportive for his sons and and that he would encourage fond memories of their mother.

Yeah, now he wears his wedding band from his marriage to Camilla behind his signet ring. I just thought it was nice and tribute to Diana that despite everything and even her death, he never went without his band until he officially moved on.

@ Duc- I hadn't read that! If that's true, that is really sweet!

Wow, OTT doesn't begin to cover it! Fresh roses? I think someone was writing yet another fairytale. That there are portraits of Diana around the various residences is not surprising as she was his wife and the mother of his children. To create fantasies about little "altar's" is really tipping into the twilight zone.

It may be OTT, but it it is still sweet IMO.
I doubt it is. I had read that Charles kept no photos of Diana in his home after the divorce- I don't believe that because of W and H.

I DO believe that because of W and H. The whole period must have been hell for everyone. If the Prince of Wales needs a portrait of Diana, he can always go to the National Portrait Gallery. In the meantime, I am sure her sons have their own personal portraits of their mother tucked safely away inside their hearts, minds and apartments.

I think when people say that there are pictures of Diana in Charles's homes. It may be of her/him and the boys together. Charles commissioned a portrait of Diana in her wedding dress. I'm sure there family pictures up at home. William and Harry has said they all talk about her all of the time too.

That makes sense. And we know we can trust W and H.

I'd be surprised if the Prince of Wales had pictures of Diana in his homes, immediately after the divorce. How many divorcees [no matter how saintly] want images of the ex hanging around [particularly after an EXTREMELY acrimonious split ?]. No doubt the children had her image around in their own rooms.

I like the photograph of Diana by herself.
The 25 foot train was incredible.
Her bridal flowers were gorgeous.

My favorite picture of them (wedding day) has always been the one where she is down on the floor looking up at him and he is leaning down to her...the look on their faces is very sweet...there was love and joy between them at that point.

The large puffed sleeves of her wedding dress was one of Diana's favorite features. The sleeves contained fine ribbons that were gathered into ruffles that enveloped her arms.

Fairy tale, anyone who listened to the engagement interview, whatever in love means, certainly knew there was a problem with a twenty year old and a thirty two wear old

St. Paul's Cathedral was a grand choice as the church for the Royal Wedding of Charles and Diana.
The Cathedral is beautiful both in and out.
