Royal Rob, Buckingham Palace is HUGE, as I'm sure you know already. They could live in separate wings and no one would know.;) What I found intriguing about the article was that it raised the...

IOW Camilla was already wealthy, particularly if her money was wisely invested.

She got a settlement from Charles? You mean a financial settlement? I know that he gave her jewelry over the years, but the suggestion here is that he gave her a large sum of money.

I think you're right, Aliza. Diana had her "issues", certainly; but a person doesn't have to be harsh about Diana to support Camilla. The reverse is also true.

From what I can understand, Camilla wasn't considered virginal enough to be a royal bride (by the standards of the day). Perhaps there was also an expectation that the Prince of Wales would marry an...

I can see the Barbie hair and what looks like the tops of expensive perfume bottles. I'm pretty sure that it's a party favour of some kind. Maybe we could start a thread like "What's in the Queen's...

I think that this is the nicest photo of a young Camilla that I've seen. Can anyone make out what she appears to be carrying, besides her handbag?

Thanks, Warren. The reply came close after my post, which is why I thought it was about mine.

I'm hardly "intent on wreaking havoc to this marriage." However, I did find it odd that Camilla wasn't at the Braemar Games. Believe me, I do NOT want the C & C marriage to fail.

Oh, I guess I'm really not up on things.:lol: I thought that Laura had a baby, but forgot that they were twins.

Does anyone have any idea why Camilla wasn't at the Braemar Games? Has she taken ill?

I doubt that this story is true; but even if it were, the PR disaster might be for Prince Charles, but not for the monarchy.

As far as I know, the Church of England recognizes civil marriage. The blessing was a recognition that a legal marriage had taken place. At least, that's my read on the situation.:flowers:

Even if the arguing about the legality of the marriage is mostly done by "Diana partisans", it's still controversy in an informal sense.

Is there any particular reason why a person who wonders...

I think that there must have been some kind of deal made behind the scenes. Perhaps HM, as Defender of the Faith said something to the effect, "Okay, son, you can marry your mistress--but not in MY...

I wonder why they didn't take the Church of Scotland route? At least then there wouldn't be this controversy over whether or not the civil ceremony was legal.
