Yes, NOW she is. We were discussing her name at the time leading up to the engagement. On the invitation in the DVD, it says Mrs. Camillia Parker-Bowles. That's all I was saying.

Having sat through many civil marriages, it really is immaterial what name is used before, at the actual ceremony it is only the forenames of the bride and groom that are used.

I'm just saying this was the name she had on the invitation. Also, as to why a divorced woman might keep her previous huband's name is if she had children with him, as did Camilla, who have that last name (much simpler when dealing with schools, doctors etc). Also, Jo made the analogy to Jacqueline B.K.O. I live in NYC area as did 'Jackie'. The papers,magazines, etc almost invariably discribed her as Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Just be glad they dont call her Camilla Rosemary Shand Parker-Bowles Mountbatten-Windsor Princess, Duchess, etc. You could die of old age trying to get it all out!

If the Archbishop's expression was anything to go by during the service, it appeared that he had retained his doubts and was merely performing a duty demanded by the Queen of the senior cleric of the Church of England.

But contrary to Palace rumours at the time, Dr Williams was not approached by Prince Charles to see if a Church wedding could be arranged. Charles knew that would be a non-starter and that the Archbishop would be bound to refuse, so he spared him that particular embarrassment. But Prince Charles did have a private audience with the Archbishop in the weeks leading to the ceremony and persuaded His Graceto allow a Windsor blessing in spite of his obvious misgivings. The Archbishop was adamant that the service in St George's Chapel should be one of repentance on the part of the bride and bridegroom, not a gloification of the marriage, which is why on the day itself, he refused to wear his full State robes and appeared instead in the simplest vestments he possessed, with the full agreement of the Queen."
Wow! Another good argument for separation of Church and State.

I wonder if Dr Williams is the reason for the announcement that Camilla will just be Princess Consort.

I actually admire Dr. Williams for sticking to his principles. Too many times churches nowadays don't seem to follow the very principles the church is grounded on. No one has to be a church leader but if they've chosen to follow that path, obviously they should hold to the principles of their church.

Why Charles needs to be head of the church in this day and age though, I don't know. I never get the impression his beliefs fit into too well with traditional Christianity. He's entitled to believe whatever he wants but any contradictions between Charles' values and the church's values does pose a problem, given that he's supposed to be the head of the church someday.

Yes, in America we call it the first amendment to the consitution, specifically banning the establishment of a State religion. While there are some nutty religious types (JMO) who would like it disallowed in this country, I think it's a nifty thing to have. In case you couldn't tell, they made us study this(consitutional law) ad nauseum from junior high/secondary school to post graduate school.

Dont know about the Pss Consort part and AofC.

Not to be too flippant, but in Dr. Williams' case, he's a member of a church that was founded to allow a famous royal to marry more than once.

I doubt the Princess Consort business has to do with Dr Williams. At least, I really hope it doesn't. If the Archbishop gets to decide who is or isn't suitable to be crowned, we're in a very bad way (especially considering some of the crowned monarchs and consorts we've had). That's one thing which might have gained Camilla so much sympathy that it would have backfired on the Church, which isn't the most popular institution in the country as it is.

Not flippant at all. Historically there was a lot of politics involved in marriages, both royal and aristrocratic. Marriage had more to do with the politics of power than undying love (or lust), and an heir was more important than either. It must also be noted that the separation of the church and state was hardly possible since the King at that time was effectively both the state and the head of the church. As for the Archbishop of Canterbury, he has publically demonstrated that he perceives the Anglican Communion in a far more radically liberal way than most sitting in his pews. Seen in the light of his public sackcloth and ashes approach to the wedding of Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, IMHO he demonstrates a breathtaking hypocrisy.

Scooter, I replied to Lozange who said:
"Originally Posted by Lozange: While I agree Prince Charles seems more comfortable with himself, married to Camilla Parker-Bowles, "

And as Charles is not Charles Parker Bowles and The Duchess of Cornwall was not born Miss Parker Bowles, it is impossible for Charles to be married to Camilla Parker Bowles.

That's all I wanted to state. No comment from me on the way Camilla is named on the DVD in the time before she married Charles.

Much more sense for the children to have the fathers surname and the woman to keep her own! All of my children have their fathers surname, just not the same father and I have not had any problems with schools, doctors or anything else.

I know women who have chosen to keep the name of a previous (living) husband after they get married again. It's usually because they want to keep the name of their children.

I don't think Camilla did, though.

Or for example, I have friends/relatives who were sucessful professionally/famous or wellknown for what ever reason and chose to keep the name. But, most often, it' s that they have children with that surname. We have had conversations in the past about how Camilla and Andrew's daughter in law Sarah chose to keep her maiden name and people (some of the same) were very offended when I suggested that she might want to keep her own family name. To each his/her own, dont you think?

You're right, as long as it is the person him/herself to get to make this choice. What we are discussing here is that while the former Camilla Shand took on her husband's name after each wedding, she still is called by some by a somewhat notorious name. Now that is unnecessary, don't you think?

We now have something like 17 posts arguing about Camilla's pre-DOC surname.
Could we return to the thread topic please.

Warren, you're right. And at least they don't call her that spiteful "mistress" anymore.

Re: this question

I personally feel very uncomfortable with the idea of the Prince of Wales becoming the king (though it is the office which we all should admire) that my opinion re: this couple has never really changed.

It is a hereditary office, thus it's better not to think about the person who will inherit but about the symbol he is going to be. And IMHO The Prince of Wales already is in his role as the prince an admirable symbol for the monarchy. That the way he has conducted his private life may not be what all of his future subjects condone is one thing - but as The Prince of Wales he surely is a success.

Considering the moral integrity of many royal males Charles fits right in. The rich and powerful simply have other ideas about morality.

Do you mean the moral integrity of the 66.6% of couples that get divorced because they are unhappy within their marriage? Being rich and famous seems to have very little to do with it, the difference is that theirs are the divorces, separations, affairs that make the headlines.
