Come on, micas, we've seen much worse. Just keep in mind the outfit Princess Martha Louise of Norway wore to the Spanish wedding two weeks ago. The very thought of it sends me into epileptic fits.

Hello!

Charles pays tribute to D-Day veterans

4 JUNE 2004

Prince Charles has been meeting some of the army heroes who stormed the beaches of Normandy. The Prince of Wales chatted with a group of Scottish veterans, who told him of their memories of World War II, during a visit to Stirling's Albert Halls.

The 55-year-old has been making a series of appearances to mark the 60th anniversary of the D-Day landings, a counter-offensive launched against the Germans in 1944. Charles is Colonel-in-Chief of the Black Watch Regiment and Deputy Colonel-in-Chief of the Highlanders.

But one of the feisty veterans was less than impressed when he noticed the royal visitor was not wearing the right kilt. Ex-Black Watch platoon sergeant Charles Swanson demanded to know why the future king was not sporting the regiment's traditional tartan. When Charles, who was wearing a green Hunting Stewart kilt, assured him that he had worn a Black Watch tie the day before, the 83-year-old said: "Well, where is it today? You’re not wearing it today!".

Afterwards Charles struck up a conversation with 95-year-old Jim Shields, who was rather more charmed by the visitor. After the decorated solider told him how much he admired him, Charles replied: "Not half as much as I admire you. We owe you all a great deal for everything you went through over there."

And there was no disagreement about the Prince's attire when, later in the day, he donned his Naval uniform to take the salute from 650 veterans in Portsmouth. A crowd of some 5,000 wellwishers turned out to greet the Vice Admiral when he paid tribute to the men who helped turn the tide against the Nazis.

Looking at the wide width of medals on his chest ('fruit salad' as the americans are prone to say), one would think that the PoW served more at D-day then the rusted veterans beside him.

On June 5th, Prince Charles was shown in the USA via satellite from France visiting the Pegasus Museum. He was wearing an ordinary suit with all his medals across his chest. I guess it was only a 'semi-military" event.

I think he used busniess suits but he not used uniforms in D-Day likes in 1995 with his former wife the Princess Diana and sons.

Some articles on marriage.

- More Britons support Prince Charles marrying longtime lover Camilla Parker Bowles than oppose it, according to a poll released Wednesday.


Thirty-two percent of respondents to the Populus poll said they would support Charles if he remarried, while 29 percent were opposed. Thirty-eight percent said they didn't care and 2 percent had no opinion.

Marriage is a sensitive issue because Parker Bowles is divorced and her former husband is still alive. Charles, who divorced Princess Diana before her death in 1997, would be the supreme governor of the Church of England if he took the throne, and some Anglicans remain opposed to remarriage of divorcees.

The church is officially neutral on the issue, but former Archbishop of Canterbury George Carey recently urged the couple to marry.

Disapproval was higher among women than men, with 37 percent of female respondents opposed, compared to 21 percent of men.

The young were more supportive of a wedding than their elders. Forty-two percent of 18-to-24 year olds said they approved, while 20 percent disapproved; among those aged 55 to 64, 27 percent approved and 41 percent were opposed.

Populus interviewed 1,004 people June 4 and 5 for the poll, published in The Times newspaper. The margin of error is plus or minus three percentage points.

A former servant to Britain's royal family who said he witnessed heir to the throne Prince Charles engaged in a sexual act with another male staff member has admitted he made the allegation up, a report said.

George Smith, a former valet whose lurid allegations last year threatened to severely damage the British monarchy, told the Sunday Telegraph newspaper that the story was a complete fabrication.

He sold his story to another British newspaper last November, but a court injunction banned the British media from printing details of the allegation.

This left Charles's household in the curious position of issuing a formal statement denying the incident took place, yet not being able to say what exactly was being denied.

According to the Sunday Telegraph, Smith made the allegations after being paid 60,000 pounds (110,000 dollars) by another Sunday newspaper.

In conversations with the Sunday Telegraph, secretly recorded by the paper, Smith said he would be happy to rescind the story for a similar sum.

Asked what his position now was, Smith said: "I didn't seem him (Charles) in a compromising position. The reason I said that was because I was angry with" another royal servant, whose name is suppressed under the court order.

Smith was quoted by the paper as saying he would swear to a legal document rejecting his own allegations

with all this "blah, blah, blah ....." I'm glad Canada (and I suppose for that matter Australia and New Zealand) is one step removed from the shenanigans of the English Royal Court. Yep, there is an advantage to having a power-less and below the radar Governor General.

tiaraprin 06-13-2004 01:45 AM

I hope they do not marry--what damage that will cause!!!

angela 06-13-2004 08:02 PM

If they do marry it would show the contempt with which Charles holds his future subjects in. He should do the decent thing and give up the throne. Like Edward VIII he should realise that he can have the throne or Camilla but he can't have both.

Bravo and Kudos to you Angela!! :flower:

Not only to his subjects does he show contempt, but to his own sons! Everyone bahses Diana for the mistakes she made in the Andrew Morton book and being unfaithful, but Charles started it all when he needed an innocent, virginal mouse to marry so he could carry on with Camilla!!!

Boy did he and Camilla get that one wrong!! Bravo Diana!!! :heart:
