What I see is a stage managed attempt to disguise her true personality which is intensely ego centric, hostile and ambitious to the point of being rediculous.

Oh really? And how do you know what her 'true personality' is? By reading spiteful articles in cheap newspapers?

No those are where all the nice comments are coming from.  Bascially from people I know who have had run ins with her during the 1980s and through a number of books that were talking about her personality from before she got married to Prince Charles.  And if you are good at reading faces you can see it in some of the casual pictures where she didnt know she was being photographed.

I don't have much time for malicious gossip; if she handles herself well on public occasions, it is good enough for me, and Prince Charles plainly blossoms in her presence.

So good for you.  All of your impressions are based on media accounts and not very critical ones.  I have a different view and, as I believe in democraciy, believe that I have as much right to voice mine as you do.

I agree too (though I can understand the reasons for the hostility, which was not ultimately related to her personal character, but based on the part that she was thought to have played in the break-up of the Prince's first marriage).

I agree. And for some people the hostility will never fade while for others, the more time that goes on the Diana is gone and Camilla conducts herself well, feelings will soften and, if not change all the way to affection, at least become less and less harsh.

'All of your impressions are based on media accounts and not very critical ones.'  Very critical ones are presumably ones that are anxiously looking out for nasty things to say about her. Frankly I am not much interested in her private character, only about how she carries out her public duties as consort of our future King, and interacts with people while doing so; and there does actually seem to be fairly general agreement that she does this very well. And by the way, dear Constantinople, did I ever deny that you had a right to express your opinions? I suppose it is my right too to say that I find them unpleasantly bilious.

This is probably what every second wife and stepmother has to go through.
She's always going to be classified as the witch.
Even more so, Camilla.
We don't know and NEVER will know what goes on between those walls and the famiily, but my judgement is not based on what she did, as there was 2/3 persons involved in THAT relationship, instead I'd rather see the good she is doing or at least trying to do.

            Then I also have the right to state that I find your comments fawningly obsequious.  And no, critical refers to critical thinking skillls, the ability to analyse things below the blaringly obvious.

I have to disagree with your first sentence here.  I would think most second wives marry men who are free to form another relationship.  Camilla resumed a relationship with a man who was married to another woman and they had two young children together.  That's why many people classified her as a 'witch' not the simple fact she was a second wife.  All in the past now of course.  She's now married to the future king and we have no choice but to accept it.

Indeed not, we could have her tried by a jury of tabloid journalists and chop off her head.

I think the real trial will be the referenda about becoming republics that will be held in Canada and Australia that are timed for just before the corronation of king Charles.
