Did either of you actually read the article that John Grace wrote? It is vile, vulgar and inaccurate.

The Guardian is an anti-monarchist paper. And reported blow-jobs their level.

It's satire. And I've read both the article and the book.

Actually I thought it was pretty good satire once I read it. Very good job at poking fun at royal "insiders" who know the "scoop" as in Camilla wouldn't have gotten out of bed to go to the registry hall unless he was there to assure her of all the wondrous things to come.

Anyone who read that article and took it seriously should reread it again.

Perhaps Camilla, herself, was in a quandary. She was dating both Andrew and Charles at the same time. Andrew was dashing and debonair and Charles was a relationship more at the emotional level. I don't know. It could be that the dashing and debonair won out over the emotional. I do know that the Parker-Bowles marriage was more of the aristocratic open and discreet kind and with that, Camilla was able to explore the emotional relationship with Charles (at different levels) while still having the dashing and debonair Andrew.

It just so happens that in the end, the emotional bond between Charles and Camilla won out.
Just that! That all important and major aspect of the relationship between Charles and Camilla - the emotional bond - was always there. Even the much younger Diana recognised that. Whenever the physical relationship resumed is neither here nor there, it only cemented the other.

For me, I don't think there is any doubt who Charles' soulmate has always been. Jury still out on Camilla!

Frankly it was so sugary I had to give up reading it, and it almost put me off Camilla.
