It was Diana who first asked him to give an interview to Richard Kay to lay some of the rumours and gossip to rest. He was passed on to Anna Pasternak and decided to do the book. He told Di about it and said she was "unconcerned" by the documentary of his life it was meant to be. But Pasternak and her editor changed it into a romance despite Hewitt's and Di's protests. Hewitt later wrote the book he had intended as Love and War.

One isn't. That's the only way to deal with traitors. You then set an example and discourage the mob.

No it isn't the only way to deal with traitors. Heavens - a person having an affair with the Princess of Wales is a whole different kettle of fish from a person passing secrets to the enemy during war. Once a state starts using extreme cruelty in its treatment of its offenders, it doesn't have much international moral high ground where human rights are concerned.

You frighten me. Seriously.
Then, if your kind is what constitute the Charles and Camilla circle of supporters, I am now absolutely certain I am not mistaken on these two people.

I hope to hell that nobody here makes an assumption on any royal based on what any one member posts here . :(

Besides, I think nobody here is serious about a hanging, drawing, and quartering. If so, they haven't seen one in real life. I haven't either but what I've read about them makes me glad they belong to the previous centuries.

I don't speak for any elected circle unlike some on here. I speak for myself and if you don't like my opinion then there we are. I have actually seen a hanging, drawing and quartering - I believe it was on Charles II : The Power and The Passion. And please, don't use my opinions to build yours on Charles and Camilla. I don't speak for them.

Based on what people are postingI don't think we are. It's all a matter of what rubs you the wrong way. I can take temper tantrums if they're short, sweet and to the point and then everybody goes off on their own business. I climb the walls though at extended emotional outbursts that don't get any conclusion. Sulkers I don't mind, I can just ignore them and I do.

The Queen can be very nasty as well you know. She's noted for three huge blasts all concerning the dogs. 1) A footman tripped over the Corgis and hurt one of them by stepping on him 2) A footman spiked the Corgi water with neat Gin and 3) A footman said that he wouldn't mind the Corgi's dinner (fillet steak) for himself. She treated them all to a Royal tounge lashing and they were all removed from her personal service

Yes, it was very graphic and showed it in it's entirety. And then in the Helen Mirren thing, they showed the beheading of Mary Queen of Scots - very graphic. A good deterrant if any there was one.

Didn't Diana have a fit when Charles arranged for Tiggy to spend time with the boys and she found out they had confided things to her?
Diana at one point approaching Tiggy at a party to intone: "So sorry to hear about the baby". A flurry of legal threats followed the erroneous claim that Tiggy had had a child aborted.
The situation with Tiggy was totally different than the one with Barbara Barnes. By the time Tiggy came along Charles and Diana were at war.

Tales about William's escapades as a young child were littered in the papers. One I remember was him hanging Harry out a window. There was definitely a discipline problem and Barbara Barnes was known as a hug 'em type of nanny rather than a disciplinarian.

Surely we've all done that to our siblings?

Well I got smacked for grabbing my one year old sister around the chest and swinging her around. But my parents couldn't understand that's the only way an 8 year old can carry a 1 year old baby! I got no sympathy!

He was very well-known as a little terror....Willy the Wombat was one nickname used for him...

His brother was the one known to be a little more sedate and quiet as a child.

Amazing how the roles have switched now they are adults...but they are both still good men.

I love how you phrased that...I am sure they have all lashed out at some point to their servants.

Although the Queen Mother's staff absolutely adored her...

They were all old Queens themselves dear. There was the story of the two camp young men having an argument when the Queen Mother said, "When you two old Queens have quite finished , will you get this old Queen a gin and tonic?"

She it seemed, hated anyone who had dealings with the boys and it was a pretty ghastly thing to say to a young woman in front of so many people.:(

Princess Margaret insisted on gay staff. When asked why she said, "They create the best flower arrangements and mix a pink gin to perfection".

Come to think of it, if I had been waited on hand and foot since birth, I'm sure I'd be high-maintenance too! My great-grandmother grew up with a lady's maid, chambermaid, parlourmaid, cook, kitchen maid, chauffeur and gardener and her family wasn't even wealthy. She was married before she learned to dress herself and it was quite a transition. Ah those were the days. :)
