If they believe that they love each other, just let it be. Dont have to bother with their personal life. Many people marry each day but no one bother to discuss. I dont understand why people think this couple important just becoz they are from royal family. I dont see why this marriage is so important.

Simplyblessed, if you cant picture him as a king, please dont worry. I have a bigger problem here. I can not picture why some people has to vote yes or no for a royal marriage.. still dont understand... :?


Fact is they are married. Most people don't care about the marriage including me. The reason why it is some important (re: head of the church of england, ruling monarch of england) is because the people of england pay their wages; that is why they live they way they do. Who do you think pays the wages of all the staff etc that the Royal Family has in place. That is why it is important about Charles being King. If you were head of a Corporation and being paid huge amounts of money etc; don't you think the Corporation would want you to be able to do the job that they employed and payed you to do. Same principle in my book! :idea:

After what he did to Diana, Charles is not deserving of the throne.
His unfaithfulness from the start with Camellia was very shameful.
If he felt that way for Camellia, he should of stepped down, and Married her, and Diana would probably still be alive.
I would really hate to hear that England condones this Marriage.
I would really hate to see the Queen promote her son to the throne. I hope they wait till Prince Henry is of age, and they by pass Prince Charles and give the throne to Diana's son. I think he would be more approperiate for the throne than his disgraceful father.


My sentiments exactly! Good for you! Makes sense doesn't it. Why should everyone pay for their lifestyles if they can't do the right thing by their people and live up to their obligations! The queen, I think, has pretty much shown she isn't happy about this union; by not showing up at the ceremony. Maybe she is holding a trump card with Charles that the World doesn't know about. I think she has been a truly admirable leader; and deserves our praise as a Queen (i'm not saying anything about her parenting here) just her job as the Queen of the Commonwealth and the Head of the Church of England.

I think its their personal life, so we should not poke our nosees in others businesses. whether we like Camellia or not, it's their own business and they are free to do whatever they like. talking about myself, i dont like any one to poke his nose in my business, so i dont like this for other as well. i think we should not like for other what we don't like for ourselves. that's it.

I think they're wedding it's not our concern. It's obvious that prince charles loved her even when he was married to the late Princess Diana and that was one of the reasons that their relationship split. So now Prince Charles is trying to put his life back and live as he has always wanted to. I don't like them both so I don't care. May the lead a happy life together!

I understand people's opinions in this forum (if we were talking about an ordinary couple).

We aren't! He is the future King of England. He has a responsibility to uphold the laws of the Church of England (he is the leader of this Church) as well as the traditions of the Monarchy. You have to remember this is what he is paid handsomely by the taxpayers of England to do (it is a job)! :roll:

I'm not saying he isn't entitled to happiness, we all are. But the fact still remains that past King's have had to abdicate their position when they have chosen to marry outside the regulations of the Church and the Monarchy. Why should he be any different?

Don't they choose to give up their title and not because they are forced to do that? I thought most of them voluntarily gave up their title because of outsiders's force that they should not marry people they loved to marry to, but not giving up their title because they chose to marry that certain person. They wanted to live a quiet life with the person they were married to, so they chose to give up the title. Isn't it? :? And didn't she have some kinda title before she was married to him? Thus, technically, she's belonged to his class. On the other hand, when they got married, he was supposed to be entitled to the throne, but he wasn't a King of England at that time yet so no rule was broken. Right? :?

No Camilla didn't have a title before their marriage; she has many of them now.

Edward was King he had to abdicate the throne of England to marry Wallace Simpson. He had no choice that is just the rules.

If Charles becomes King she won't be Queen she will be the King's consort. I think that is the title.

They had to come up with something quick to call her if it eventuates that he would be King. There has been alot of re-writing of rules to accomodate Charles. He is lucky it hasn't been done for anyone else.

It still doesn't make it right; in my opinion.
