The first is two programs in one. The first is a documentary on Queen Elizabeth’s relationship with Australia and right afterward a public debate on whether or not the Monarchy is important to Australia.
Wild about Harry! Yes we are ;) But anyway this a fairly balanced documentary which focuses on Harry’s work and not just his mistakes.
The Trailer for “Diana”
Meh…. I’m not that impressed, there have been so few good Diana based movies that I’m not raising my hopes.
I don’t know if it’s allowed, but I am just trying to get the word out. I have been offered a job as a part-time royal reporter for the site Royal Central. I have submitted two pieces on the Queen. If it’s possible you can look them up! The first is on Queen Elizabeth Land and the other on how the coronation was almost never telecast.
That awesome! Well done you! I will be sure to check out your work.
Although I appreciate your response, about the reflection on your change of attitude. I must “emphasize” that my previous comment, in deed was meant about kate “& CO” = “the child included”. Yes, you have mentioned him (child) to be mostly to blame for kate’s laziness/carelessness, which in fact he is. But, who can force kate to behave with such disregard towards others (charity duties, etc)? After all, how can anyone expect better of her, when she refuses to be good at all? The point they (Kate & Co) don’t get. Is that their particular type of marriage is supposed to be a partnership in favor of Britons.
After all, even when Charles & Diana were not longer getting along (10-12 years altogether - according to Diana herself) a brave-united-public front was always observed during said period. Which was how none ever got noticed of the “madness behind closed doors”. When Diana was pregnant/sometimes unable to fulfill public duties, Charles presented himself to her pre-arranged engagements with children and elderly patients. When Charles, got injured during polo match, surgery followed (1990). It was Diana picking/tending up to his list of engagements.
In their better times, to see them working together was described (even by Diana herself), as “a beaming double act”. Which for whatever long, was quite successful. Perhaps some fellow britons may recall.
What do you think ?
Your make such a good point about Charles and Diana, that they put their own marriage problems to one side and still did their duty.
I do think Diana and Charles made an excellent team as each had what the other lacked. Charles covered the intellectual side of things and Diana brought the glamour that brings in the media.
Yeah… There is a bit of a double standard in terms of sexual conduct isn’t there… some how we still expect woman to conduct themselves differently to men.
I think people are a little more forgiving towards Charles because we know his past; the largely unemotional relationship with his mother, he would love his nannies only for them to leave, the horrible boarding school were he was bullied almost every moment. So with that back ground it’s understandable that Charles would find it very difficult to stay faithful to anyone and why he is so needy and demanding. I’m not saying his upbringing excuses his behavior it’s simply gives us an explanation of sorts.
But by contrast Camilla had a very blessed life and childhood, her parents were happily married, she went to all the best schools and by all account was a happy and lucky girl. So what drove her to do such destruction in her life as well as the lives of her life, her children, Charles children and of course Diana.
Well… I don’t really have a source as such I have simply read a couple of biographies on Camilla and it is just my personal opinon that she is not a nice person.
My main problem with her is not so much her conflict with Diana but her hot and cold treatment of Charles in the early stages of their realtionship.
When Charles went of to Sea for a tour of duty in the 1970s Camilla knew damn well that Charles was in love with her but she it seems was not as emotionally invested as he was. She was dating her soon to be Husband Andrew Parker Bowls at the same time Charles was courting her and when Charles went off to Sea she married him without telling Charles….. That is pretty damn cold…. Charles wrote to a friend “I hope this dark hopless feeling when leave me soon” in regards to learning Camilla had married.
I also question if Camilla really cares about Charles, if I was in her postion I wouldn’t have turned our realtionship back into a sexual one during the 1980s. Largely due to us both being married with children but also because it wouldn’t help the overall problem of Charles and Diana not being right for each other and in the long run would only make things worse.
Also Camilla has spent her life as a lady of leisure not doing an ounce of charity work until her image needed to be improved in order for her to marry Charles. So yeah… not a fan of Camilla.

“Old age suits Charles well. He looks far more comfortable with himself and his role (and he seems to suit grey hair too!)” - Submitted by Anonymous
I totally get what this confession mean. Charles was old even when he was young now that he is old it suits him.

“I can’t help but wonder what things would have been like if Kate had been the princess in the 80s and Diana was the royal bride of the digital age. How much of their popularity is truly from them and how much is related to the time they’re from and how that influenced the image the public sees?” - Submitted by Anonymous
I think one thing that would have been good if the internet had been around during Diana’s time is that more people would have spoken openly about the huge age difference between her and Charles and their total lack of shared interests. I know looking back it’s easy to say that because we know how it ended. But a 19 year old with a 32 year old man getting married who barely know each other and he is her first lover… come on.. I know it was the 1980s and things may have been different back then but still….
One of the great things about the internet is that it allows people to have a truly open forum to exchange opinions and ideas. I think Diana could have been spared the fate of marrying Charles if more people have pointed out the huge differences between them.
This is part rant and apology because I know that my tumblr has been a no man’s land in terms of how little I actually post stuff. It’s just a freaking Q&A page!! GRR!!
Don’t get my wrong I love answering questions, in fact in a weird kinda way it has helped me in my college work. Having to think about how to phase the answer to a question so I am not taken the wrong way as really helped me in my essay writing.
But now that I am coming to the end of my second term of college things are starting to quite down and I can finally start enjoying my tumblr and hobby of royal watching!
One thing that I have wanted to do for the longest time is go back to my roots on youtube and start making videos again!
So I have decided to do a sequel to one of my most popular video “My top ten favorite Princess Diana Dresses” I am thinking of doing my top ten princess Diana day dresses. I have a top ten in mind but I can’t think of a nice song to play in the back ground. Can anyone think of one?
Also I’m thinking of doing a video solely on the Kate-Hate and Kate-Love phenom on tumblr. It would be in the style of my “Does the Queen dislike Kate Middleton” video. Also I think it’s about high time some one talks in detail about William’s lack of work and reluctance to step up to use duties.
Also the Easter holidays are coming up at the end of the month in which I will have two week off!! Yay!! So I will use that time to seriously clean up my tumblr as I have had so many thoughtful post that have become lost in the archives and I will also be uploading more programs to my voeh account for people to enjoy.
So just a little update to celebrate the fact I am no longer a slave to my college work! Yay!
