I think it shows a weakness in Charles. He kept pursuing Camilla even after she married another man. He married Diana basically under pressure from his family. A virgin with a spotless past was too good to pass up. And as you say, the Spencers were also eager for the marriage. Wasn't it one of Diana's sisters who said "its too late, you're name's already on the tea towels" or something like that when Diana confessed that she had doubts before the marriage? Any other woman who had seen all the signs Diana had before the marriage would've called the whole thing off. But Diana was marrying the future King of England. I dont think she had that luxury.
Imagine putting all this burden of responsibility on a 19 year old. If Charles loved Camilla so much, he should've had the courage to declare his intentions to his family and should've married her. She certainly didnt wait for him though and married another man. I do feel bad for the couple, that they've had to spend their lives in such misery. But its hard to feel sorry for them when you realize that they've caused others such pain. As far as Im concerned they're both responsible for their past actions.

yes the vacation pictures from Turkey shocked me too. I cant believe they actually had the nerve to bring it all out in the open for the world to see. Its hardly the sort of behaviour one would expect from a future king.
I was also thinking that if that sort of thing happened to a non-royal couple, the marriage would most likely have been over much earlier.

It's to be hoped that the people concerned have accepted their responsibility and done what they could to make the best of things.
Unfortunately, I feel that is EXTREMELY unlikely.

From BBC News:



Charles and Camilla select music

Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles have chosen a young Russian contralto to perform at a church blessing, after their civil wedding.

Ekaterina Semenchuk, 29, has been flown over specially from St Petersburg to sing a Russian Creed.

Members of the Philharmonia Orchestra, and the St George's Chapel Choir, will also perform at the blessing, at St George's Chapel, Windsor.

It will follow a civil wedding ceremony at Windsor's Guildhall, on 8 April.

Wedding gift

Ekaterina Semenchuk, who was a finalist in the Cardiff Singer of the World competition in 2001, will sing a Russian Creed set to music by Gretchaninov.
She has been flown over specially for the wedding, as a gift from the Mariinsky Theatre Trust of St Petersburg, of which the Prince of Wales is patron and a benefactor.

Clarence House says a combination of choral and orchestral music will be played during the Service of Prayer and Dedication, at St George's Chapel.

The music for the blessing has been chosen by the Prince and Mrs Parker Bowles.

It includes some of their favourite pieces, such as Bach's Cantata "Nun Komm der Heiden Heiland", and excerpts from Handel's Water Music.

They have chosen a number of organ and choral pieces for the beginning of the service, including Farewell to Stromness, by the Master of the Queen's Music, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies.

Works by Walton, Bach, Handel, Elgar, Finzi and Grieg, are also included.

Personal favourites

The newlywed Prince and Mrs Parker Bowles - by then the Duchess of Cornwall - will join the congregation to the Adagio Movement of Albinoni's Oboe Concerto in D Minor.

Three hymns, which are among the personal favourites of the Prince and Mrs Parker Bowles, will be sung.

They are Immortal Invisible, Love Divine All Loves Excelling, and Praise my Soul the King of Heaven.

A verse of the National Anthem will be sung after the concluding blessing, followed immediately by a specially-commissioned "Celebration Fanfare", by the Welsh composer Alun Hoddinott.

The service will conclude with excerpts from Handel's Water Music, and from works by Bach for organ.

The Philharmonia Orchestra, of which the Prince is patron, will be conducted by Christopher Warren-Green.

The organist for the service will be Roger Judd, and the St George's Chapel Choir will be conducted by Timothy Byram-Wigfield.

The choir, which was founded in 1348, is made up of 23 boy choristers and 12 Lay Clerks, who sing the alto, tenor and bass parts.

The Princes of Asturias will not attend the wedding of Charles and Camila, because Felipe has already a previous commitment: the investiture of his intimate friend , the Chilean president Ricardo Lakes, in Salamanca, as doctor honoris causa. According to sources of the Royal House no other member of the Spanish Royal Family will attend the ceremony.

For all in the US~I was watching "The View" earlier and Barbara Walters said that she would be covering the ceromony for ABC so I'm pretty sure they will be showing the wedding live.

I'm going to ask an odd question.
Should the royal wedding be postponed or make low key if the Pope dies? I know the BBC made a joke about this (shame on them) but still I think that any royal wedding this week will be well wrong.
I was thinking that they go ahead with the wedding, but include a special prayer for the pope, or wear black armbands or something, to show people that they aren't celebrating while the world mourns.
