    Camila isn’t a monarch, yet.

    I don’t know what the problems is with Camilla. She looks like many women her age, and like many British women, period. She dresses neatly, is polite, probably uses the right fork. She’s married to her best friend, and she gets along with his children. Can’t we just back off on her? QE2 shows no signs of slowing down…

    I think the adultery thing still bothers people. Diana may have been a bit of a twit, but she was an innocent girl who was chosen for being a pedigreed virgin and then married off to a guy who was still in love with another woman—and who then dumped her for that other woman. The guff about her being a “commoner” is as ridiculously snobbish as requiring Kate Middleton to curtsey to those useless royal princesses. As it happens, Diana was also of royal descent and her bloodline wasn’t any worse than Camilla’s (who’s reputed to be cousins with Charles via a king’s mistress). By those criteria, half of the royal consorts of England started out as commoners.

    Bottom line: Charles could have stood up to Mummy in the first place and married the woman he loved, instead of caving in like a rank coward and marrying a young broodmare, then neglecting her as if it were all her fault. It’s great that he and Camilla are together now, but they both hurt people to get where they are. So, I can see why some people begrudge them a happy ending. All things considered, it’s a small price for them to pay.

    There’s more to it than that but it proves that arranged marriages aren’t always a good thing. What we have now is what should have been. Diana was no innocent.

    Ethelred sounds like the inspiration for Blackadder.

    Forget Mrs Big-Ears. The real question here is why Vicky missed out on Æþelræd Unræd’s real booboo, the St. Brice’s Day massacre of 1002.
    Also it’s a bit of a stretch for her to call him an ancestor.

    Aethelred , unlike Camilla Parker-Bowles, was actually liked by his people and unlike the Prince Charles’ wife, governed England, whereas Parker-Bowles will never be Queen. Remember the Duke and Duchess of Windsor and the abdication.
    I believe succession will pass to William and Kate.

    isn’t the current british monarchs descended from the germans?

    I absolutely love the Queen Vicky strips that give us a history lesson…with a punch line. Keep ‘em comin’!

    “Ancestor-by-purchase”? as in the Pirates of Penzance?

    Although he’s called “the Unready”, his actual monicker, “Unræd”, actually means “ill-advised”. Real historians who prefer accuracy over folk etymology attribute the poor quality of Æþelræd’s reign to the poor quality of advice he got from his Witenagemot.

    It’s ironic, to be certain, since the name “Æþelræd” means “noble counsel”, the opposite of his epithet.

    Via Edward VII’s mistress! No wonder Her Maj’ doesn’t like her.
