I don't think Skydragon was denying that the British tabloids exist and that they practise some rather questionable journalism. The comment had to do with the gutter press existing in Florida too....

Edward VIII probably didn't want to be King, but I have a feeling that he'd have stuck with it if he could, as long as he thought Wallis wanted to be Queen.

Yes - I wonder if Wallis really found the Duke's love all that easy to bear, since she seemed like a rather independent person and the Duke was utterly obsessed. It seems as though Camilla returns...

Now I ask you - are they very short guys with beards, or are we rewriting classic fictions now?

I certainly hope you do.

Whatever do you mean by Snow White? Something about being attended by seven very short guys with beards? Sudden fondness for apples?

Well, if people donate money for hurricane relief, it can go to all the areas where help is needed unless they specify that it should go for use in New Orleans.

She's getting her news from BBC radio and her local paper in England (she doesn't take any of the national papers). Somehow she got the message from them that the tour isn't a success. On the other...

It appears that the British media can't stand good news. My mother in law was going on this morning about what a flop this visit was and that Americans have shown they find Charles boring and Camilla...

Well, I've heard that Jesus can turn gay people straight, but I had no idea that Camilla had the same effect.

What on earth is that brooch? She looks as though she's being attacked by a mutant stick insect.

The BBC keeps saying in its reports "Prince Charles and his wife the Duchess of Cornwall..." This is getting a bit monotonous, especially after the first time in a news bulletin. It's as though they...

I think if it were a full-length gown made of fabric like that, it'd be the sort of occasion where Prince Charles would be dressed more formally too.

Well, we know what sells papers and what doesn't, and quiet appreciation of a job well done is one of those things that unfortunately doesn't.

Yes, I was just thinking there was something a bit like the Queen in her approach to presenting herself; she isn't experimenting, she's figured out what suits her and adapted it for her needs.

You mean all the other people who were there to see the royal couple were people who didn't like Camilla but had taken the time to go and see her anyway?

Usually the royals wear bright colours during the day so as to be easily visible - the exception would be something like the Remembrance Day service at the Cenotaph. In this case, Camilla was doing a...

It could be argued that a person shouldn't need a research grant to notice a certain avatar of Queen Mary that inhabits the British forum. Maybe a new pair of reading glasses, though...:cool:

See, maybe this is why Camilla had on that jacket - so we couldn't see that her waistband was elasticated so she could do full justice to that menu!

Yes, with her highlighted hair, really bright hard colours like red would be a bit much for her, but the shades of pink she's been wearing are really good on her.
