Whatever Camilla and Charles may be believing in in private, officially they are both CoE. And yes, you're right, if Camilla was a Catholic, Charles as her husband would loose his right to the throne.

Camilla Rosemary Windsor-Mountbatten née Shand formerly Parker Bowles is Anglican.

In her first marriage she was married to Andrew Parker Bowles, who is a Roman-Catholic. Her children Tom and Laura Parker Bowles were raised Roman-Catholic and did attend Roman-Catholic primary schools. After this Tom attended Eton, while Laura attended a Roman-Catholic convent school in Shaftesbury (Saint Mary's Convent).

Camilla however remained faithful to the Church of England and did not convert to the Church of Rome. So she is no Roman-Catholic.

Obviously one of those many programs which set out to denigrate our wonderful Duchess and spread lies about her.

Hey, hey, hey - I was a Roman Catholic by birth - that's not soooooo bad. I mean, I'm not longer a member so for me it wasn't "it" but still....

Dear Wymanda,
I think you owe the Roman Catholics in the forum an apology for your comment, I'm going to assume you didn't mean to be so disrespectful.

I think what Wymanda meant was that this was a programme intended to make her seem unfit for Royal service, I don't think she meant any slur on Catholics at all.

laugh outloud post of the day

either they were wrong in their facts (which the media seems to be alot these days) or malicious and trying to cause trouble for the duchess. stirring up a religious question to add fire to the debate of camilla becoming queen. it's a low blow and dispicable if it was done for that purpose.

Play nice ladies. I am sure that no one meant any harm by any of their posts, and I am sure that wymanda was not out to slur any religion.

Definitely an err in reporting. The BRF couldn't possibly cover-up Prince Charles marrying an catholic without stating he would renounce his rights to the thrown.

There was a lot of talk about it at the time the Prince married Camilla. Some people had heard something about Catholic, not realised that it was only Andrew Parker-Bowles and not both of them who were Catholic, and starting going on about how Charles shouldn't be marrying a Catholic (and some of course were gleefully announcing that he'd have to give up his position in the line of succession, serve him right, etc etc). And you know how it is on the Internet - someone makes an authoritative and dead wrong statement, and it's out there for other people to read and believe.

It would be against the law for Charles to have married a Catholic and retained his position in the line of succession. It wouldn't have been possible.

As to whether this was someone at Channel 5 being ignorant or someone being malicious in order to either attack Charles (or Camilla) or boost ratings based on a piece of known nonsense, we may well never know. But apparently the BBC isn't the only TV channel exploiting the royals for the sake of publicity.

Sometimes people need to be held responsible for their actions. Tabloids printing speculation about an affair is one thing but to threaten part of what an institution stands for or belives in is another. To actually state that a member of the BRF is a catholic is slander. This program if widely aired can possibly cause dissension in the very people who hold the institution in high regard. On the other hand, ammunition to the ones who don't believe in that very institution. Someone at the top of this network (or whoever produced the program) needs to be held accountable.

It's hardly slander. Being a Catholic isn't the same as being an axe-murderer.

I am not talking about being catholic or any other religion. What I am talking about is lies. Cut and dry.

I think so, too and tried to make a joke about it. I just hope I did not point Catholics to the posting so their feelings got hurt. Sorry, dear Wymanda and sorry, dear Catholics, if that happened.

Yes but not all lies equal slander. Saying someone is a Catholic when they're not is a mistake not slander.

But the point is was it a simple mistake? You have to do proper research unless your program was meant to cause controversy.
