Let's get back on topic.

This thread is about Camilla's family....not William,Catherine or even Charles.

Any and all additional off topic posts will be deleted without notice.

Spheno, did you pick this wording or did the DM?

Nick King isn't Camilla's son-in-law, Harry Lopes is. The way the article is written makes it almost seem like the DM isn't sure which one is which.

Nick King is the neighbor. Looks like someone was rushing to meet deadline and got the names mixed up.

Mark's estate worth £1,579,227.

Mark left an estate worth £1,579,227.

The Daily Mail has a nice picture of Mark with his father.

Mark Shand left no will and no money for his lover - Telegraph

I do not know why the papers expected Mark to leave anything to Ruth Powys. Her relatiionship with Mark ended in 2013.

Has Camilla's two children (and their family) ever been invited by the Queen for Christmas...or included in any other Royal gathering ?

Yes - one of Camilla's granddaughters was a flower-girl at William and Kate's wedding so the rest of the family were also invited to the wedding. Other than that there has been no official attendance at major royal events although they may have been there as private individuals keeping a low profile and simply appreciating the fact that they can attend without trying to muscle in on the situation to promote their attendance.

I wonder, is a thin skull a sign of osteoporosis?
He had 2 hip replacements.

Leave it to the Daily Mail to trash.
Mark had 1/2 glass of champagne at 6:30pm
Mark had 2 or 3 whiskies prior to dinner around 10pm
Mark had 1 whiskey with dinner. (between 10pm -2:00am)
Mark had 1 whiskey at 2:30am.

In an 8 hours period he had 4-5 whiskies and 1/2 glass of champagne.

Oh and both the DM & Telegraph refer to his sister as Camilla Parker Bowles.

Family of The Duchess of Cornwall

I don't see how they are trashing they are reporting the inquest.
You mightn't like the result but that's what it is. They reporting the same as other papers

Well he was drinking just different words. I wouldn't get myself upset about that.

He was more than twice about the drink/drive limit, what probably made him a bit wobbly on his feet.

Regarding adressing Camilla, its not unusual. I see papers adressing other commoner-turned-royals being addressed by their birth names such as Daniel Westling, Letizia Ortiz, Mary Donaldson or the british example Kate Middleton.

Alexandra Bowes Lyon who was with Mark Shand when he died and was at the inquest is related to Camilla's children.

Alexandra Bowes Lyon is a 2nd cousin to Tom and Laura.

Alexandra's father David James Bowes Lyon is a 1st cousin to APB.

Alexandra's grandmother Mary DeTrafford is the sister of APB's mother Ann DeTrafford.

David James Bowes Lyon was born July 21 1947. Camilla was born July 17, 1947.

The DeTrafford's and Camilla's family go back more than a century.

If you read the story it does not match the headline. The headline focuses on the drinking, but the article says it was not necessarily a factor. They do not know for sure it was why he fell. He would have lived if his skull was thicker. The thin skull like the hip issue are from osteoporosis which runs in the family. Saying he died as a result of a thinned skull from osteoporosis just is not as juicy a headline.

The Times & the Mirror headline focus on the thickness of his skull.

His skull was 1 milimetre thick in places.
Most men's skulls are over 6 milimetres thick.
