You are avoiding the question. Why have a civil ceremony instead of the religious one, if there was the possibility of one, if one will be Defender of the faith?

And what is your explanation of why Queen Elizabeth refused to attend the civil ceremony as it was incompatable with her role as Defender of the Faith?

This is quite an exercise in dubious 'mind reading' of me on your part. Leaving aside all your speculation and entering into the facts, I ask again: If the Church of England was willing to perform...

No! The royal marriages act of 1772 specifically forbids civil marriages within the royal family. It was hotly debated at the time whether the civil marriage was/is legal.

Yes, it is ambiguous. However I think it is fair to ask why exactly would C and C have chosen an unheard of, ground breaking for a royal, civil marriage ceremony, which at the time had the legality...

While Henry was certainly a hypocrite, the CoE was founded as a non-Popish, but 'Catholic' (in Henry's words) religion. In more recent Windsor family history, Uncle David had to abdicate to marry...

Because a future Defender of the Faith remarrying with a living wife (as far as the CoE) would have been a much tougher sell, IMO. As Diana died, Charles was viewed as a widower by the CoE.

I think it would be better if there were a separate thread for it for exactly that reason. It wouldnt spill onto every other thread if there was a designated thread to discuss.

It's the Ghost of Bad Behavior Past that the public minds, and that Charles fears to remind them of, not the late Princess.

Really? I cant think of two people more diametrically opposed in pretty much every aspect of their life and the way they have conducted it than QEII and C.

Yes, exactly. The fact is the official position stated at the time of the marriage is that Camilla will be known as Princess Consort. The rest is all wishful thinking.

Yes, he is well taken care of, however genetics and familial history are a strong factor in lifespan, as any doctor will tell you.

Not publicly, but she had a regular chat with the Editor in Chief at the Sun "to get Charles' side out"...so not quite as silent as the grave regarding the relationship.

Really? I think Charles is the ultimate survivor. There could be a tsunami in England and you would find Charles at the top of London bridge wearing the crown jewels afterward.
