There are more than a few things in the world that I will never ever be able to understand in a normal lifespan. The latest example stems from the engagement of Prince William to Kate Middleton. Have you seen the story on the news yet? I bet you have, LOL. What gets me is that if clearly a person of royalty can get married to a commoner, why the heck did Prince Charles have to marry Lady Di when Diana was definitely not his main squeeze, and he had the Duke of Windsor as a role model to follow if he was so inclined? On the other side of the ledger, Diana wouldn't have married Prince Charles if he wasn't a prince, duke, or some other rank of British aristocracy. She wouldn't have gone through the motions of kissing him if he was a frog. It wasn't the same situation so to speak where Jackie would have married Jack Kennedy irregardless of his status, but much more like a Jackie Kennedy and Aristotle Onassis liaison regarding the bond between Charley and Princess Di.

He married Di because Camilla wasn't available to produce heirs to the throne. You know all that bloodline bs. Apparently now things have changed...a spouse's blood doesn't have to be so blue anymore.

Rowena- ended up quite a tragedy, IMHO.

Rowena said...

Not as much of a tragedy if Camilla and Charles did produce heirs to the throne. Ouch. Ok, let the tomato-throwing begin...

Rowena- well, the main thing is, they're together. After all that.

gigi- William first saw her modeling a swimwear. He was very smitten.

Cloudia- Yes. LOL.

Wasn't Camilla already married?

Why would anybody want to marry the prince anyway? It'll be like a bird in a gilded cage. It's driven Princess Masako and Princess Michiko to "near" nervous breakdowns.

"Wasn't Camilla already married?"

if that's so, they both been marry the wrong person. They make a pair, I guess.
