I think so, too. There's a lot of people that don't care for him and others won't let him move on after Diana because they won't let Diana rest. She has become a bore to me lately and Charles & Camilla seems to be so full of life and compliment each other. There's really not much being a King, since it's really a symbol anyway. Let him reign and let his life have relevance next to his love of his life. That's my say on it.

Diana has become a bore to you? perculiar comment considering she has been deceased for 10 years.

Perhaps it's more the attempts to project a saintly (or whatever) image of this lady, rather than Diana herself which has you somewhat miffed? That I can understand.

Yes, Charles and Camilla are wonderful for one another. It's really great to see! There's no doubt Charles shall reign and rightly so. The 'alternative' is ludicrous and without foundation imo.

I can assure you that the British monarch is so much more than just a 'symbol'. That is largely an incorrect observation (with all due respect).

I second your view concerning Diana. IMHO she really believed that fate has given her the position as The Princess of Wales because it was her mission to change things. Thus she behaved accordingly instead of seeing herself as a supporter of the monarchy. She did believe in my opinion that she was much more important than Charles, that fate had chosen him to elevate her to her position as ambassador for whatever she felt was important, no matter what the other Royals thought. A firm belief in one's fate can turn out to be a kind of hubris - and then you simply don't put on your seatbelt when it's inconvenient because you are so sure that you survive as long as your mission is not accomplished. Fate showed her in my opinion that she was wrong.

But - her followers who still believe in her mission of course cannot accept that the greatest heredict of all - the man who divorced her and took away her Royal title, becomes king after all. Her followers cannot accept that their guru died because of a forgotten seatbelt. They have to believe in sinsiter plots to end this life whose mission wasn't yet accomplished. So - there you are.

While in the real world Britain's monarchy seems to be pretty stable and thus tradition will be followed when the current souverain dies: The queen is dead, long live the King! Of course not in any case the parents die before their children - but whoever saw the terrible grief of parents who lost their child won't wish for Charles' death before his mother, only to make Diana's idea of a king William without a king Charles before him to come true.

I've deleted a couple of posts 'predicting' when the Queen will die because I think it tasteless and tacky.

Ah Warren, you restore my faith in the Forums. We can all be as irreverent, inflamatory, blinkered, and bolshy as we like.

But when it comes to tastless and tacky, well..... one has to draw the line somewhere.

You never *****foot around. Your reasons are ever clear, concise and, in your face! Long may you continue!

ps: wherever did the ***** come from?

There is no need to sound harsh Jo. This a thread about Charles becoming King and not Diana's opinon of him becoming King.

It was late or early when I commented, so I didn't mean it as it sounded. I meant that there wasn't any state or political meetings or catastrophes the King needed to attend because he had to do so to make political decisions. I realize the amount of work and charitable organizations that the monarch attends to. For that, Charles need not to be overshot by his son because of his personal life with Diana.

And, yes. I have become quite bored with Diana because of the same ole dredged up stories, personal attributions and flaws this woman had. I loved this lady and when she died, I also couldn't stand Charles and didn't want him to have the kids, etc etc. However, as a single parent stepping into the shoes of one, he has done well. His boys love their father and have become his world. Yes, the nannies and boarding school did help him raise the boys, but Diana was there to help them early and Charles later in their early and mid-teen years. So, if I offended Diana worshippers, didn't mean to.

That's rather unfortunate but each to their own.

So what exactly has she done in the mean time? How you can like someone in life and come not to like them in death is beyond me.

Perhaps you are someone who is primarily taken by the indaviduals celebrity rather than the person themselves.

And as I'm no Diana "worshipper", no offence was taken

Well because you find out more about the person after they died and what you find out changes your opinion of them. Or a characteristic of that person that you once thought was so great doesn't seem so great any more.

Actually, far from the truth. If you knew who I was and what I've done in life, you wouldn't think that way of me. But, not wanting to let the worms out of the can, suffice it to say, some of the "celebrities" I know are rather overrated and if people knew them on a personal level they wouldn't really care for them. On the other hand, others I know are good people both professionally and personally.

Of course I don't know you and I don't claim to. I did not intend to state that that is they way you infact think though given your statement, I thought it a possibility. You have since made it clear that is not the case, and so I have no reason to doubt you. I appreciate your reply

Of course he will reign !!!

Prince of Wales will definetely become a king. At this point in time, it is irrelevant to guess reasons why he may or will not accede to the throne.
I srongly believe that people should let Princess Diana rest in peace finally. If Prince of Wales ever bears responsibliity for ruining his first marriage, it will take place in the next world.

Charles is likely to become King in due course, but we don't know what tomorrow will bring. It certainly is possible The Queen could outlive her son and William would succeed as The Sovereign instead.

In any case, his reign will be relatively short, given The Queen's good health and the likelihood of her reign lasting another 10 years at least.

I agree that Charles' reign is likely to be short, like that of King Edward VII.

Queen Elizabeth II is in excellent health and her mother lived to be 101. It is entirely possible that she will reign another 15-20 years. By that time Charles will be in his 80s or close to it, he's almost 60 now.
