Charles to marry Camilla

Clarence house has announced that Prince Charles will marry Camilla later this year, though no date has been set.

It is now widely accepted that Prince Charles conducted an affair with Camilla before, during and after his marriage to Diana. Diana is on the record as claiming that Camilla was one of the primary reasons for the break up of her marriage to Charles.

Some may find it rather curious that Edward VIII had to abdicate in order to marry Mrs Simpson, with the reason given publicly that it was because she was a divorcee. With hindsight, the couple's well documented Nazi sympathies were far more likely to have been a cause for concern. Camilla Parker Bowles, as well as being widely acknowledged as the wrecker of Charles' marriage is also a divorcee. Apparently now the Archbishop of Canterbury also supports the future head of his church marrying a divorcee, homewrecker and adulterer. So much for moral guidance to the anglican community, as well as the British public at large.

When Paul Burrell was aboard the Royal Yacht Britannia during a period involving a gay porn scandal, it was suggested to him by the Queen that he should "find a wife".

Prince Charles was involved in a scandal of his own a while back, though heavy-handed legal action attempted to keep the scandal from the British public (though the details were widely reported overseas). Police even confiscated foreign newspapers carrying details that were brought into the UK by Channel Tunnel passengers.

The announcement of marriage comes after MPs were seeking access to the accounts of the Duchy of Cornwall to see how much money the Prince provides for Camilla, as well as just how much tax the Prince's 'business' avoids through exemption from capital gains and corporation tax.
