Prince Charles To Ask Camilla To Marry Him Today

Thu Feb 10, 2005 6:26 pm

Seems as though Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales and hier to the throne, will ask his lass, Camilla, to marry him today. Any thoughts?

Does he need to marry her in order to race her at the Grand National at Aintree or something?  Insane

If, by any chance, you're being serious, it was 'breaking news' on BBC Breakfast (news).

I think he might just have laid the foundation for the annulment of the British Royal family. Also, won't his divorce (a big no-no in the Catholic world as I understand it), make it very impractical to function as the head of the Church of England? I'd say that unless the Queen decides to skip the rank & give her throne directly to Prince William (I doubt Harry will ever get near it, after his little nazi stunt), she's going to have boatloads of problems.

This is just my outside observation, but it seems that the royalty is good for little else these days than to feed the tabloids stuff to write about.

It's somewhat ironic that the US doesn't have royalty, because that's exactly the kind of thing that would get a vast portion of this country interested. It would be a reality TV show producer's heaven.

With a little luck, Elizabeth will become at least 101 just like her mom and Charles is dead or too old by then and William will become king directly.

QFF,
You do know that there's no guarantee that the Republicans will have it their way if this marriage goes on, so there's still a big chance that you'll end up having HRH Queen Camilla for the next few decades.

Enjoy your new Queen!  Acting devilish

KEno - can absolutely guarantee you that we will never end up having HRH Queen Camilla.

We will have Her Majesty Queen Camilla - as the King's Consort; a union so unpopular that it will swell the support for a republic in many of the realms around the world.

It is another nail in the coffin of the monarchy, and for this I will always be greatful to HRH The Prince of Wales.

Isn't Prince Charles gay? Last I heard he had some secret affair with a male servant.

Also he's going to propose today? The public knows about it before Camilla? Unless Charles is going for some kind of fancy, or not so fancy, way of doing it.

CPH-R, the only way Harry can become King is for William to die and not have any male children.

I'm also wondering how this will affect Charles being King as both are divorcees, which has been pointed out is not generally allowed for the head of the CofE. However, I don't think it has anything to do with the Catholic church AFAIK.

6 April has been mentioned as a possible wedding date.

Well, Lapper - considering the Church of England was founded on the principal that the Monarch can divorce I don't think there will be too much opposition from his mother or the church itself.

CPH-R, the only way Harry can become King is for William to die and not have any male children.

I thought that even the female offspring of William would be higher up the line of succession than Prince Harry?

What was the story of why Edward has to step down then? Wasn't it because Mrs Simpson was a divorcee?

I always thought it went to the next male in line in the family, if none there, then it goes to the chicks.

She was a divorcé, and American and I think (not totally sure) was catholic or had previously married a catholic.

For the 30s this was absolutely not on.

I always thought it went to the next male in line in the family, if none there, then it goes to the chicks.

I'm not sure. For instance if Charles and Diana had all female children I think the throne would next go to those offspring as opposed to Charles brother Prince Andrew.

I hope they'll be very happy, hell no one else would marry them, you've gotta scrape the barrel when you're in their position.

OK, the rules of succesion mean that the eldest son of the heir to the throne or King will become the next king. If the King as no sons but daughters, then the daughters would become Queen.
The current list

1. Prince Charles
2. Prince William
3. Prince Harry
4. Prince Andrew
5. Princess Beatrice
6. Princess Eugenie
7. Prince Edward
8. Lady Louise Windsor
9. Princess Anne
10. Peter Phillips, son of Princess Anne
11. Zara Phillips, daughter of Princess Anne

Camilla will be known as Duchess of Cornwall until Charles becomes King, then she will be the Princess Consort.

No, I don't think so. I would imagine her status would be similar to that of Prince Philip, in that she would be the consort and no more.

Mind you, I still think she could get into the Grand National if she wanted to. all we need is a jockey....

I need to correct myself:

29. Is it true that HM The Queen has agreed to allow the Government to change the laws of succession to the throne?

No, it isn't true. The only thing which Her Majesty has done is to agree to allow discussion of the issue (whereby the right of succession passes to the eldest child of the sovereign regardless of gender, that is, females would have the same right of succession as males). Neither Parliament nor the Queen have decided to do anything beyond discussing the issue.

For additional information, see various issues of the "Electronic Telegraph" (the online version of "The Daily Telegraph" newspaper) including those of 13 February 1997 (issue 629) and 28 February 1998 (issue 1009).

Some of the comments here about Camilla are quite immature and vile, and probably posted by people who aren't exactly God's gift to beauty themselves.

It was the insistence that Charles marry someone "suitable", who would be accepted by the British people, rather than someone he loved which directly led to the fiasco of his marriage and, ultimately, to Diana's untimely end.

Seems that certain people here are demonstrating that same shallowness and disrespect for marriage by suggesting that looks are more important than genuine feelings.

If Charles had been allowed to marry the person he loved to begin with, instead of bowing to the know-it-all public's idea of what a future queen "should" look like, he'd have been a lot happier and Diana would probably still be alive.
