Extremely old??? She's in her mid-fifties. Princess Alice was extremely old; Camilla is middle-aged.

It is getting more with the times, in that it's finally coming round to realising that some marriages don't work and it's more destructive to put obstacles in the way of divorce and remarriage in...

Well, since Charles is already pushing 60 and most people seem to be focusing on the long term and William, I don't think Charles is going to be in much of a position to do too much damage. People...

It seems as though William and Harry will be attending. I wonder what they think of daddy's latest tantrum. This isn't setting a very good example to them.

Good grief; how selfish of him. There's a time and place for making statements about his relationship with Camilla, and this isn't it. What a thing to do to the bride and groom and their families,...

Actually, by all accounts his employees have a more diversity than in the other senior royal households. Someone must be thinking that he's unpopular enough that she'll get a sympathy vote of some...

Back in the early 1970s she wouldn't have been considered "suitable" even before she was married, because she'd had previous affairs. I'm not sure whether her lack of title would have been a problem...

Loubna, I think it was reported that he's the same height as Princess Diana was, which would make him 5' 10".

I think the real problem is that Diana is a subject that people tend to feel very strongly about one way or the other, and emotions tend to get the better of reason on both sides a lot of the time....

They did cause damage, but so did Diana. There's plenty of blame to go around, and it isn't down to just the three of them either, if reports about the sorry history of that marriage are anywhere...

Are there really that many Diana haters here? I mean, I've seen people give fairly balanced criticisms of her, only to be labelled haters because they weren't prepared to take her side totally. And...

What haters? I don't hate any of the royal family; I think that as far as faults go, Charles is a self-centred wimp, Diana was an unbalanced brat, and Camilla is a schemer who wants the perks of a...

Well, I am a British citizen, and I wouldn't want to curtsey to Prince Charles. Somehow, for all his good intentions, he seems to have a problem with behaving in a way that encourages long-term...
