    Princess Anne, the only one of Her Majesty's children that hasn't embarrassed her.

    Tampon Charlie is a disgrace and should not be offered the crown: he should live with his horse-faced whore in Paris, they are used to disgraced British Royals there.

    You obviously do not have children then as very often children do embarrass their parents.

    @1, 2nd sentence, that's a mightily harsh and uncalled for swipe to the heir of the throne. At least Prince Charles told the RG to grow up during his visit to BAires in 1998, something Falkland folks were hugely appreciative of. We all incur blips along life's pathway, or are you unique?

    @1. Not nice. No-one has total control about what happens in their lives. Tell us about Mark Phillips. Did he keep things “in hand”?

    As I understand it, Charles was essentially forced to marry Diana for the sake of the country. Where do you get off calling Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall a “horse-faced whore”? Can't comment on the “horse-faced” but what about your many whores? And how many do you have that “the wife” doesn't know about?

    Isn't it nice for you that you're “perfect”?

    @1 ChrisR

    Princess Anne has embarrassed HMQ by getting arrested and having to go to court for speeding. A few years ago now, admittedly.

    As for your comments about the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall they make you sound like a prick. No in fact after those comments I believe you ARE a prick. Charles is a lovely man who cares deeply about people and the environment.

    When I served in the Army I was based at the Selly Oak/Queen Elizabeth hospitals where all the casualties from Afghanistan/Iraq were sent upon their return to the UK. Princes Charles was a regular visitor. He visited the wounded troops and their families, brought gifts for them, and all of it was done below the other words without a media circus that the politicians and 'celebrities' insist upon to show the 'public' how 'caring' they are.

    He was forced into marrying Diana, who couldn't wait to marry him (no doubt she had a romantic notion of what a Princess was, and her family certainly pushed her into it), neither of them loved the other. It was bound to be a disaster and FYI Princess Diana cheated 1st.

    All their debacle of a marriage showed was that they are ordinary people who aren't perfect. Prior to the 20th century they would've been forced to remain married and made each other terribly unhappy for the rest of their lives.

    So Charles got divorced and married a women that he loved. Your disparaging remarks about Camilla's looks and calling her a whore are terrible, and shows what a bigoted and sexist person you really are.

    I have no problem with Charles taking up his birthright to be King and I certainly have no problem with Camilla being crowned Queen.

    And finally, since you live in Uruguay why do you care who becomes the next Head of State of the UK? It won't affect you in the slightest.

    As for Princess Anne, I have a lot of time for her. She's a great person who isn't afraid to get her hands dirty.

    Poms are a joke as they swoon over this goofy royal family.
    It's 2016 time they got a job and stopped bludging off society.

    @6 Klingon

    I rather have a Royal Family than a bunch of thieving politicians.

    You Argentines are so stupid that you stand by and applaud EVERY time they rob you blind. All they have to do is mention the mythical 'malvinas' and you swoon, and drool and ignore the fact that your last President was more than 1000% richer when she left office than when she took office.

    Only and idiot would allow that kind of thing to happen over and over and over and over again and never learn from it.

    So yes I'd rather have a billion 'goofy' Royals than one Argentine politician.

    They do say that those who are most jealous and envious will always condemn what they can never have,

    Argentina has nothing to look up to.
    so like some other republics they condemn and insult ours.

    having a president does not guarantee a better head of state.

    Well, how many adults are there in this world? Not us, surely...I can't see a single example anywhere. Wars and arms all over the place; inundations of information to cope with and so relationships get tangled. How's yours?

    First of all I have not had the opportunities that Charlie has had and yes, like everyone I have had a (very) few 'bumps in the road but I am not a spineless coward when it comes to taking life by the throat and getting the best out of it.

    So none of you remember him and Camilla 'getting close' when they were young and his come-on line 'you have to sleep with me your ancestor (forgot the name) slept with my ancestor (forgot that name but he was of course married at the time)' and so it started.

    In fairness to Camilla she fully expected Charlie to ask her to marry him but he dallied and dallied, as is his nature and went off to sea 'expecting', he later claimed, that 'she would wait for me'.

    He, of course, had never said anything to the woman so after I think it was approaching three years she married another who did have the balls to ask her.

    As for being 'forced' to marry Diana that is utterly risible: he could have had anyone 'acceptable' to Her Majesty except somebody who was already married to someone else.

    Then of course we had the stupid comment about him wanting to be Camillas tampon when he was shagging her even though she was still married.

    Diana was right when she said it was difficult to sustain a marriage with three in the bed. Diana had her faults but they were clearly as a result of getting entrapped in an unacceptable situation brought about by Charlie.

    As for his cares about nonsense (other than himself) he does of course 'talk to plants', perhaps they listen to him more than actual people do.

    I must admit I may have been wrong to state “he should live with his horse-faced whore in Paris”. I love horses and I apologise for comparing them to Camilla.

    @ 5 LEPRecon
    “FYI Princess Diana cheated 1st.”
    Care to PROVE that one?

    As for bringing up the speeding offence of Princess Anne in the same context of adultery by the heir to the throne of Great Britain I think YOU are the prick, not me.

    @10 ChrisR

    Firstly, Charles may not have loved Diana, but she definitely was the 1st to sleep around. Maybe Charles was 'emotionally' unfaithful but he wasn't physically unfaithful until after Diana started her string of affairs.

    You see, ChrisR you Diana apologists always fail to remember is that some of those men she had affairs with (and there were 7 of them), including Oliver Hoare and Will Carling, were married by the time these affairs started; Diana was apparently so 'hurt' that there were “three people” in her marriage, yet cynically ignored the fact that she was the “other woman” in those people's marriages as well. Oliver Hoare used to be Charles' close friend and his wife - Diana's friend (though not particularly close). That didn't stop Diana from obsessively pursuing him and making silent calls to his house.

    Camilla's previous husband wasn't faithful to her either!

    Gosh all those royals and 'posh' folks shagging around and having affairs. One would almost think that they were just people! People who have problems.

    Oh and it is a bit much calling Camilla a whore when Diana shagged 7 men whilst married to Charles. And why haven't you called Charles a whore? Or Camilla's 1st husband? Or Will Carling?Kind of tarnishes that 'sacred' image you've built up about her, hasn't it? Why, in your opinion is it okay for men to sleep around but not women? Why that is a really sexist attitude you have. Almost Catholic in its attitude.

    Next you'll be demanding that all unfaithful women should be stoned to death, whilst the unfaithful men are given a slap on the wrist and told not to do it again.

    As for the speeding offence, you stated that Princess Anne was the only one of the Queen's children not to have embarrassed her, and I corrected you. When one's daughter is arrested and brought before court, it is a trifle embarrassing for most families, regardless of whether they're Royal or not.

    You're still a prick.

    @ 11 LEPRecon
    “And on her honeymoon she discovered that Prince Charles was cheating on her with Camilla Parker Bowles.”

    The revelations came in intimate tapes recorded by the princess which were broadcast for the first time on American television last night.

    Read more:

    And are STILL the prick, try getting the facts correct?

    BTW you need to learn the CORRECT meaning of BIGOT.

    Not your day today then?

    And if you think appearing in court on a speeding charge is in anyway the same as a continuing adulterous affair by the spineless prat who has six eggs boiled at one minute intervals by his 'manservant' so he can always be assured of the 'perfect' ONE that he eats is reasonable behaviour then that's your skewed proprieties problem, not mine.

    ChrisR, LEPRecon,

    This is about Princess Anne visiting the Falklands and paying tribute, not the Chuck & Di story.

    Creepy ChrisR showing his true misogynist colours again. Ask yourself what kind of a man would call a woman a 'horse-faced whore'? Let's all be thankful he no longer infects the U.K.

    Princess Anne is only second to Prince Charles in the number of official engagements carried out for the U.K. Both had over 500 engagements last year and both are over 60.
