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.
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!
One of the great things about tumblr is that it introduces you to loads of people and helps inform you about subjects you didn’t know about or had preconceived ideas about. No hard feelings, we all live and learn. xx
I am almost finished writing an article that I have been working on for some time.
The reason behind this is not to criticize the royals but to try and give a reality check to many people who seem to think that marrying into the royal family is one great big amazing adventure The more I have followed the royals they more I have come to feel that given the opportunity I would never want to become one.
I hope that this article can create some discussion and make people think a little harder about what royalty is and how much you really have to give up if you marry a royal.
What the hell is going on?
I agree… What is going on? why aren’t they going to be there? It’s not like Charles to leave his mother like this? I have mad theory. What if Charles is not going as a form of protest to William “I’m not going to cover for you anymore.”
With the whole of Tumblr talking about Kate’s pregnancy I thought it would be a nice change of pace if I actually answered my royal questionnaire that I made ages ago and forgot to answer. :s
1, Who do you feel is the best living royal? (Not a monarch)
I would say Prince Harry, just I have a real soft spot for him. But two humanitarian awards before the age of 30 is a pretty big achievement if you as me!
2, Who do you feel is the best living Monarch?
Yeah, you all know the answer to this. Queen Elizabeth
3, Who do you feel is the worse living royal?
I’m sorry to say this but Prince William. I’ve made my points clear in the past so I’m not going to repeat them.
4, Who do you feel is the worse past royal?
There have been many cruel and down right evil royals in the past. But the one that has always stuck out in my mind is King Edward 1st. Simply because he ordered the hanging of William Wallace. Being Scottish I grew up learning about Wallace and the cruelty and injustice he fought against. Edward 1st spent most of his rein invading countries within the UK and creating wars over seas. When he died he left the country in a huge mess.
5, Was Wallis Simpson and Edward’s relationship one of love or two spoiled people running away from responsibility?
6, What in your opinion was the worse royal scandal in history?
I think King Henry the 8 breaking away from the roman catholic church and creating his own church so he could
shag marry as many women as he wanted in order to produce an heir.
7, Which royal do you feel is most likely to marry outside of their own race?
8, Which royal do you feel is most likely to marry outside their own religion?
Again Harry but I think Beatrice and Eugenie are equally likely to do so.
9, 15 years after her death, do you think Diana was a blessing or curse to the British Monarchy?
I think she was a blessing, she may have caused a lot of problems but she opened up doors for the Monarchy that allowed them to enter the 21st century and be of some importance.
Why did the Jubilee have to fall on the same week of my final exam!!
OK, I’m not watching anymore coverage of the Jubilee, Everyone have fun! I’m off to study. :(
This is so moving.
It really hits home how much the Queen has given to us, for me she has given me some one to look up to and inspire to be. She is so strong and dedicated to her country, she is truly one of a kind.
The music is stunning, it’s hard not to be moved by the service.
PS. I don’t care what anyone is wearing.
