Charles and Diana, Charles and Camilla: I blame British tradition for this mess

British tradition demanded that the heir apparent marry a virgin. That’s the only reason why Charles married Diana in the first place. If he’d married Camilla to begin with, there never would have been a heartbroken Diana, and this whole ugle mess could have been avoided.

Having said that, I hope these two get it right, this time.

Oh, I agree! Tho I find it hard to get past the fact that they indulged in adultery- kind of a sordid past (tho who am I to judge).

I see their public act of confession as close as they might get to teshuva.

Indeed, I hope that they finally will find happiness and peace.

I understand that Charles' father bullied him into the match. Feh! But I can't see the Duke doing teshuvah anytime soon.

In a way, I think Charles and Camilla are brave (I've always considered him a weakling). It takes guts to go against the massive wave of hostility that has dogged them for so long.

As for the royal family- I hope they grow up as well. This is what an overweening sense of duty wrought. It's the 21st century and they need to get a clue. Kinda like some utra-o's need to regarding shidduchim.

BTW, I love weddings! Loved watching it. I thought she looked wonderful!

I thought William was the older son.
