I have never been fond of Camilla, nor of Charles for carrying on with a married woman for years. Now that they're both divorced, I won't begrudge them their happiness of getting married, but I am glad they are trying to do it quietly, and doing it in such a way that Camilla will never be Queen.
I have been in favor of their morganatic marriage for some time, even though England does not usually recognize such. It's obvious that they will not be having any children, and we already have the Heir and the Spare, so no need to fuss over bestowing titles and duties on her- She should do what she can to support her beloved and not fuss over the stress of the rest.
More pertinent to our blog is this lovely bit of gossip that that has Bush refusing to allow Camilla to dine with him at the White House because she's divorced. If Bush really did forbid her because of her divorced status, he'd find the dining room thin of company most evenings at the White House. Frankly, I'd love to meet a member of the Royal Family- Camilla or no Camilla.
