Well, I, for one, certainly don't begrudge Charles and Camilla their happiness, and, like you, wish them every good thing and joy and pleasure from their children and families.

It's not funny at all: I'm convinced...

Good for you, Zhontella! Such enterprise is commendable, in my opinion.

The Oxford Histories are, however, more concerned with bald history and constitutional matters than gossip, though, of...

Thank you, Elspeth.

I'll track them down. The second title looks most intriguing to me.

From a C21 perspective, it's a pity, n'est ce pas, that so little was known about genetic inheritance...

From the net: "James was the product of a consanguineous union, i.e. he was descended from Margaret Tudor...
