Kazzzz you are so right.

Even as an anti-royalist I felt so sorry for Diana. It is awful when you see clips of the engagement where the reporter says are you in love and Diana says 'of course!!' and Charles says 'whatever love means'!! In retrospect (I didn't particular notice at the time) she looks so hurt. As he was lying through his teeth anyway he might just as well have said yes, and saved her feelings.

He talks a lot of sense at times but I have never forgiven him - or that woman Camilla - for all that.

:(

Yeah, Anne, that was just insensitive and thoughtless of him. Poor Diana , is right.

I beg to differ with you, Kaz, but most definitely YOU are.

I felt sorry for BOTH Charles and Diana. Charles, to his credit, resisted marrying for so long after his love for his current wife was made impossible by political considerations but he finally had to cave in to all the incredible pressure to produce an heir to continue the Windsor strain. Diane was (probably not totally her fault) a ninny who didn't understand that hers was a marriage of convenience but she should have known better given her heritage. Marriages of convenience can work out quite well if both parties understand the situation.

All this brouhaha about Michele Obama touching the Queen just reinforces my opinion that being a royal is a pathetic form of existence. Touching is a basic form of human communication and to deny that in the name of some ancient concept that kings have some direct line to God and are not mere mortals is cruelty IMO and totally absurd.

That's the media for ya. They'll play thi sup for months. Nothing better to do than harp on non sense like this. Sad, isn't it? Besides, who the heck cares whether they touched? Anywhere else in the world, almost, it's normal and healthy. In my first post about this incident, I agreed with Geraldine completely.

Diana was a child, a 19 year old girl who was conned by the establishment, Geraldine. What 19 year old girl doesn't have stars in their eyes and eternal optimism?

Pats, pleeeeeease...YOU are!!
