Prince Charles to Marry Camilla Parker Bowles

Thursday, February 10, 2005

LONDON — Prince Charles announced Thursday that he will marry his lover Camilla Parker Bowles after more than 30 years of an on-again, off-again romance that was blamed for destroying the prince's marriage to Princess Diana.

The Prince of Wales and Parker Bowles will marry on Friday, April 8, at Windsor Castle, said Clarence House (search), Charles' residence and office.

They will be married in a largely private civil ceremony at the palace, not in a Church of England (search) service.

The April wedding which will not have the pomp and ceremony of the fairy-tale-like 1981 wedding of Diana and Charles, which was broadcast live on television worldwide.

"There will subsequently be a service of prayer and dedication in St. George's Chapel at which the Archbishop of Canterbury will preside," said Clarence House.

The decision on the type of service reflects the fact that both are divorcés, and that Parker Bowles' former husband is still living.

Prince Charles, the poor guy, he's such a putz.

So is Charles abdacating the throne? I hope so.

He is such a horse's butt that he a Camilia are the opposites that attract.

Isn't that the truth! I wish them luck. They seem to care for each other and should have been together ages ago.

Gotta hand it to her, it can't be easy to hold the attention of the British heir, for thirty years.

Good for them.

The P of W and CPB deserve eachother, but does England deserve another chapter of Edward and Wallis? Will she be Princess Consort to King Charles, or will he still be king?

Why ruin a perfectly good 30 year affair, by getting married? Maybe they need some new china at the old palace.

Charles will make a better king if he has the woman he loves at his side.

Good luck to them.

Ditto what you said.

She obviously is the love of his life. Maybe he'll finally find some peace in his life.

I always thought she looked like an old Hatchet Fighter who
dropped her hatchet to many times.

"Imagine all the crap he would have saved the world if he had just married Camilla the first time..."

Maybe.....but his marriage to Diana gave her the opportunity to set up funds and do some wonderful charitable works that have helped people who otherwise may never have benefited from the aid and attention they have subsequently received.
Whatever the negatives said and written about her, she did give a lot of her time to the poor, sick and dying (especially children) in her country and elswhere.

The dirty secret about Edward VIII is that his marriage to Wallace Simpson was the excuse used to get rid of him. The real reason was that he was too much of a nazi sympathizer (more so than Kennedy and Linburgh). Some of his conduct during the war was so outrageous that Churchill considered trying to have him prosecuted.

If Diana's sons accept their father's choice of
a new spouse, I guess I can.

I really don't think Charles will ever ascend
anyway. Assuming Elizabeth hasn't lost all her
good sense, she'll name Wills as her successor,
get approval in writing from Parliament, and
even help the young Prince with some hands-on
sessions at the table with Blair or whoever is
PM. The kid needs some practical guidance and his
grandparents are the logical ones to do it. I also
think Wills should be sent on a state visit to the
U.S. and Canada. He's done his stint in the back-
ward nations of Africa. It's time he meets the
big boys on the block.

My word, she is beautiful! Big, BIG improvement over CPB. On the other hand, that wouldn't be too hard, would it?

Lol...

The Bride will be wearing a beautiful white plastic-encrusted gown with a train of 1000 strings....

The groom will be wearing nothing but a scuba mask and K-Y.

I agree---
They should have married from the get go.

Granted, William and Harry wouldn't be here (or look WAY different! ;) )
