    LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- A federal appeals court ruled Tuesday that a filly can't be named "Sally Hemings" after Thomas Jefferson's most famous slave and reputed lover. The 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati ruled that the Jockey Club can legally bar horse owner Garrett Redmond from naming his 4-year-old horse after Hemings. Judge Alice Batchelder, writing for the three-judge panel, said Redmond has other options that may be approved by the Jockey Club, which forbids horse owners from using names of famous or notorious people without special permission. The club's rules also say that "names considered in poor taste;...

    Herald Sun ^ | 14 July 2006
    AN Italian magazine today sparked uproar in the UK by publishing a picture of the late Princess Diana in the wreckage of the car crash that killed her. Harrods owner Mohammed Al Fayed, whose son Dodi also died in the car crash said he was "sad and angry" over the photo. "This heartless pursuit of money brings shame on those responsible for producing such a vile production," he said. "It makes me sad and angry that a magazine would reproduce an image of the princess as she clung desperately to life." A photo of the princess being given oxygen at...
  • Pope beats Charles in TV ratings (in New Zealand)

    New Zealand viewers turned out in force to watch the funeral of Pope John Paul II, but enthusiasm for the midnight wedding of Prince Charles and Camilla was more subdued. The Pope’s funeral, broadcast live on TV One on Friday night, was watched by more than 400,000 people, according to AGB Nielsen Media research ratings. TVNZ spokeswoman Michele Camilleri said the ratings were strong, especially among older people. "I think that reflects the historical significance of the event." The timing of the nuptials of Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, was all wrong for a New Zealand audience. Just...

Across the country, 27 per cent said he shouldn't become king, while nine per cent said they didn't care or didn't answer. The survey is part of the CBC's upcoming look at the state of marriage in Canada and...

    I love Prince Charles. My wife hates him, which is why I’m expressing my point of view while she is out taking my daughter to Karate lessons and I am suppose to be mowing the lawn. I suppose Charles has not mowed any lawns of late, and I hold no grudge for that. Personally, I love mowing and gardening (I’ve heard tell the Prince also loves to get into the garden), but this was my chance to take a peek at some of the CNN coverage of the wedding. I think I should get right to the point, for those...

    Charles’s hissy fit on the slopes shows him in his true colours, a man failing to engage with the modern world, says historian Tristram Hunt William and Harry had been out until 3am before last week’s unfortunate royal photocall in Klosters. But it was Prince Charles who demonstrated the grumpiness of the hungover. “I hate doing this,” he seethed, seemingly forgetting the microphones placed in the snow at his feet. Then when the BBC’s Nicholas Witchell gently asked about his wedding to Camilla Parker Bowles this Friday he hissed sotto voce, “Bloody people. I can’t bear that man. I mean...

    Because they're stuffy Royal types, there's a short list of things you should not say at the wedding of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles if you plan to crash the party. "The Queen isn't here? Is it her bowling night?" "A civil ceremony? Great, I blew off The Apprentice for this?" "I never would've suspected Gary Coleman would be best man." "At least nobody here had to get off work today, ha-ha-ha-ha."` "After the civil ceremony there's a "dedication service"? Forget that crap, when do we eat?" "I give the marriage 6 months." "She's got a lot of nerve,...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - The wedding of Britain's Prince Charles to a woman dubbed by one tabloid commentator "the Duchess of Frump" has stirred few hearts in America, distracted this week by the pomp and ceremony of a papal funeral. "America has a case of the royal blahs," said the Omaha World-Herald in Iowa, deep in the heartland of a country which, despite fighting a war for independence from England, has a soft spot for the glamor and old-world charm of the royals. "The marriage of Prince Charles to Camilla Parker Bowles on Saturday just isn't tugging at our heartstrings...

    This is London | Evening Standard ^ | 4/8/05 | Richard Edwards, Crime Reporter
    Staff at Windsor Castle have spoken of their frustration over "shambolic" preparations for Prince Charles's wedding. As recently as Monday many at Windsor were convinced that the wedding was going to be relocated to Balmoral to avoid further intrusive coverage. But they have been thrown into "utter confusion" by the rescheduling at such short notice - confusion which has grown greater every day this week amid a flurry of conflicting instructions from Clarence House. One senior member of Windsor's administrative staff said today: "You would expect a royal reception to run like clockwork - but this one is likely to...

WINDSOR, England (AP) - Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles were married Saturday in a modest civil ceremony at the 17th century Guildhall, and the second marriage for each was blessed by the Church of England as the royals knelt before Archbishop of Canterbury in a majestic ceremony in the soaring, gothic St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle. The wedding capped a decades-long love affair that lasted through the prince's first marriage to Princess Diana. The...

    WINDSOR, England (AP) - First the horse race results, then the wedding. Queen Elizabeth II reportedly took it in that order Saturday as she toasted the marriage of her son and heir, Prince Charles, to the former Camilla Parker Bowles. The queen is a keen horse breeder and racing fan. She, like all of Britain, was keenly aware that the $1.32 million Grand National steeplechase, one of the biggest races on Britain's equine calendar, had been pushed back 25 minutes Saturday to avoid a TV coverage conflict with the prince's wedding, which had been postponed a day so he could...

    For a knot-tying no-one seems to care much about, a remarkably large number of people keep asking me what my view of the Charles-Camilla nuptials is. Well, I wish the happy couple well, and I suppose it's for the best that he's making an honest woman of her. I'm not sure we're ready for a King with a "partner". Few of us would hold it against the Prince that his "fairy-tale marriage" didn't work out, were it not for the fact that he, unlike his bride and the rest of us, knew it wasn't a fairy-tale on the wedding day itself, and...

    LONDON - The wedding of Britain's Prince Charles to Camilla Parker Bowles, already hit by several glitches, will go ahead on Friday even if it clashes with the funeral of Pope John Paul, a spokeswoman said on Sunday. Clarence House said the date of April 8 had been set for some time and they had not considered postponing the wedding. "If the funeral falls on Friday, the wedding will still go ahead," a spokeswoman said of the heir-to-the-throne's plans. The pope's funeral was expected to be held between Wednesday and Friday. Buckingham Palace said they had not decided yet which...

    CAMILLA Parker Bowles will be given the title Princess of Wales when she marries Prince Charles on Friday, the government will announce tomorrow. The title will be confirmed in a parliamentary statement in response to a question from Andrew Mackinlay, a Labour MP. It is likely to anger supporters of the late Diana, Princess of Wales. The disclosure, four days before the wedding, is potentially more embarrassing for Parker Bowles than the earlier admission that she will one day become queen. The title remains closely linked in the public mind to Diana, especially among those who blame Parker Bowles for...

    A senior police source in France has told The Independent on Sunday that Diana, Princess of Wales, was pregnant at the time of her death following a road accident in Paris six years ago. The source - who saw all the documents relating to the case surrounding the Princess's death - dismisses suggestions that there was any murder conspiracy before the death of Diana, her friend Dodi al-Fayed and their driver in a car crash on 31 August 1997. He was speaking after a British coroner announced that he would hold inquests into the cause of the deaths of Diana...
