02/10/2005: Finally making an honest woman out of her....
From the AP via the New York Times we learn that Prince Charles is to marry his long time "partner", Camilla Parker Bowles on April 6. I'm rather amused by this:
Last year, a poll indicated that more Britons support Prince Charles marrying Camilla Parker Bowles than oppose it. Thirty-two percent of respondents to the Populus poll said they would support Charles if he remarried, while 29 percent were opposed. Thirty-eight percent said they didn't care and 2 percent had no opinion.I know, I'm not a Brit, but count me in with the sensible thirty-eight percent.
This does remind me, however, that I knew from the very beginning that Charles's marriage to Diana was doomed from the get go. I don't know if you remember the televised clips from the interviews that the betrothed royal couple gave right after the announcement of their engagement. At one point, a reporter asks the couple, "Are you in love?" Diana immediately started acting coy and gushing, "Of course. We're very much in love," to which Charles, in a very cynical and weary tone added, "Whatever that means."
The moment I heard that, I knew their days as a couple were numbered.
