Deary? Doll? Darling? Isn't it nice to know that after a good old fashioned bitch we can all camp it up?

Too kind, I would buy the second round to everyone currently on here, those who agree and those who heartily disagree are all welcome. For that is what makes conversing interesting and fun on here. :)

I sincerely hope that the good old-fashioned bitch is now over. Don't make me close this thread, because just at the moment I'm very tempted.

OK everybody go out and buy themselves a nice gin and tonic! :)

I'd hate to see Elspeth get medieval on us here.

Elspeth, you and Warren have the patience of saints!

Of course not, Skydragon. I'm single and thank I also don't come from a broken family (with all my respect for the sons of divorced parents).Asking that, is the same I ask if Camilla supporters are all ex-mistresses. Then, your fair answer would be No (obviously).Diana had lovers too and that is, imo, not correct. Even if her husband cheated on her, pay by the same coin, it's not correct. But I really wish never marry with a man like Charles, who could make me suffer so much like he did to Diana. Like a Member told yesterday, I think few persons would want Charles as their husband. They can like him for King, or for his ideas, but to husband I doubt he had many voluntarees.

She hated the country and loved London whereas he hated the town and loved the country.
He loved Scotland, she hated it.
He loved reading, she loved programmes like Eastenders.
She loved any publicity, Charles loved his privacy.
I think he thought he could make a go of it, but Diana, as was shown by her subsequent affairs, was unable to sustain a relationship with anyone at that time.
I agree. During the courtship she was all hunky dory with the countryside and the attendant lifestyle, but once she was married she became the "real Diana" who hated everything about him. As for relationships, she wanted anyone she was dating to spend ALL of his time with her.

I don't think there's any evidence to suggest that the "real Diana" hated everything to do with Charles from the instant she got the wedding ring on her finger. That sounds like a caricature.

It does appear that she exaggerated her liking for things which she thought Charles also liked; that isn't especially unusual in a courtship, where people in love will put up with some extraordinary things for the sake of the object of their affection, but there doesn't have to be anything remarkably calculating or cynical about it. Cripes, she was probably too young and confused to know what she really did like back then.

Love is mysterious. I truley and honestly believe that Charles and Diana loved each other and that Charles still does. It is said that Charles mentions Diana in his prayers every night. But, just because your in love doesnt mean it could work out. They probably loved each other but just couldnt live with each other. Living with each other made them hate each other and they became lonely. So, the both went there seperate ways and started affairs to comfort themselves. Charles fell madly in love with Camilla agian and Diana fell in love with other men and the public. Divorce is messy. No one wants to take the blame and look bad. Charles is a blood royal and could not escape the RF so he had no choice but to keep quite. Diana was not a blood royal, she could speak her mind out and know that since a divorce was immenent that it didnt matter what the RF did to her. She was an incrediably vindictive, intellegent, cunning women. A genius in how to court the public and win affection. She knew that if she could get the public on her side she would get the benefits of royalty without the burden. I dont blame her for doing that. I would have done the same. The thing is that there was peace after the divorce. Charles and Diana reconciled and became friends and better parents. I believe that Diana and Charles would have remarried thier ture loves in a couple of years and that Diana would have been on good terms with Camilla. I believe Diana would have been a British Ambassador of sorts and leave the real royal work to Charles and Camilla. Sadly, her life ended shortly. She died and it was no ones fault exept for the driver for being drunk, hers for not wearing her belt, and the press for being ruthless. There was peace and reconciliation after the divorce. Why cant people see that. There is no point in debating the affairs because that chapter of the marriage ended before Diana died. They all moved on and so should the rest of the world. Let Diana rest in peace. Continue her charity work but there is no reason to continue the vindicive Diana.

Thank you Elspeth...I said something similar about a week or two ago. Unfortunately..it goes in one ear and out the other with some people. We are just going round and round and round the bend.

I am all for meaningful and thoughtful discussion but unfortunately its just as Lady Marmalade & Ysbel mentioned...you are either anti Diana/pro Camilla or pro Diana/anti Camilla. There is enough blame for everyone.

If there is just One person (all I need is one) whose opinion was changed because of something that was written on this thread, well I would be amazed. And I say this for the simple reason that people are doing just what Elspeth mentioned..taking something small they might have read/heard in a tabloid/newspaper, from the girl on the bus, etc. and all of a sudden its the gospel. And this for both Diana and Camilla. I recently read in the Vanity Fair, that the bread being thrown at Camilla is not a true story. And I am apt to believe this story because she gave her "friends" permission to speak on her behalf. And I say her friends, not some who knows someone who saw her at an event. As someone else mentioned in another thread (I believe it was Princejohnny) we all really don't know what anyone in the BRF royal family said nor do we know the exact minute to minute detail of the Diana/Charles, Camilla/Andrew marriages. And that's all I got.

Hi Zonk,

I'm afraid I wasn't the one who said you are either anti Diana/pro Camilla or pro Diana/anti Camilla. I think the whole pro and anti thing is quite silly.

Anyway, I've had my gin and tonic and it was delicious. On the practical side, if we all agree that they all were to blame and we admit that none of us knows exactly what happened (which is true I believe), then there's not much to discuss here.

For how much longer, I wonder? I have just read through 5 or 6 pages or acrimony and increasing nastiness, with a few valiant attempts to stem the flow. Even the humour has an edge, but an unpleasant edge. Is this why we chose to become members of the TRF? As to the subject matter, there isn't much that hasn't been said before.

Last point to consider: has anyone noticed how few contributors to this thread there are?

That is where you and I differ, I would think your question to be fair.:)
A lot of Dianas suffering seemed to be caused by her own actions and thoughts.

I find it insulting to be called 'my dear' by anyone I don't personally know, more so from someone much younger than me, whereas BeatrixFan finds it funny and acceptable. Showing that we all see the same event through different eyes.:)

So i guess the wayward people (the few) of this forum should attack the POST not the POSTER.

Good idea! Members show a different side of themselves in different threads. Someone you think is quite beastly in this thread can be a real doll elsewhere.

BTW, its a little bit annoying when a member comes out of lurking for a long time and only posts how horrible people are being and the thread is re-hashing old stuff. If members don't think anything new is being posted here, why don't you take the initiative and post something new yourself? Or better yet, make an example of someone who treats everyone with respect? One of my big complaints is when people complain about a situation but take no positive actions to make it better.

(I am not talking to you specifically Australian but others have complained)

well if someone wants to lurk, thats their business and nobody elses. I was only agreeing with a previous poster about it, and I am entitled to regardless if i am lurking or not. Anyway, i will do as you suggested and contribute.

Do you think that it would have been possible for Diana, Charles and Camilla to have all got along if Diana was still alive? Do you think that Diana would have forgiven and started a healthy relationship with Charls and Camilla?
