Apparently, Prince Charles' wedding has been changed to Saturday so it doesn't clash with The Pope's funeral.

Should he accede the thrown, would his new bride be referred to as Queen ?

Are you referring to "The Cowherd and the Weaving Maid" song ?

yes, exactly.

Anyway, feel pitiful to Prince Charles and Camilla...but i found many friends are laughing at their marriage and they thought Camilla is the third-party...<sigh>

This is the power of media! Derailing public's value and thoughts.

I think most people in England don't want Charles as their king anyway, so I'm not even sure that would even be an issue ie. Camilla being called queen.
I think it's great that they can finally get married. They have been in love their whole lives and deserve to get some happiness.

speaking for myself - I don't want any kings, governments, bosses or popes to toss me around.

nobody ever elected 'our' rulers - they came into pover by war, murder & exploitation Hell is their place

Who do you think most people in England would prefer as their king?

Camilla would be Queen if Charles becomes King, they have said she would use the title of 'Princess consort'. I say live and let live. Everyone deserves to find love. I do think William would make a better King...but who knows?

Thanks for the link. It's really very informative.

I've posted parts of it below especially for the benefit of TP'ers in countries where the British monarch is head of state:

"...The Department for Constitutional Affairs confirmed that interpretation, saying that legislation would be required to deny Parker Bowles the title of queen. Similar legislation apparently would be required in more than a dozen countries -- such as Australia, Jamaica and Canada -- in which the British sovereign is the head of state...."

"..Mackinlay said that if Charles insists on his wife not being queen, legislation would be needed in those countries where the British monarch is head of state..."
