You don't hear too much about the British Royal Family in the news anymore since the death of The Princess of Wales (save for Prince Harry running around in a Nazi uniform). I confess that I love reading about the Royal Family. Of course, I loved reading about Diana and looking at pictures of her clothes and hairstyles. She was so glamorous. Sadly, after her untimely demise, there didn't seem to be much to talk about, and certainly nothing to look at. But now the Royal Family is back in the news, and I am just rolling in the gossip.

The big thing in England is the engagement of HRH The Prince of Wales to Mrs. Camilla Parker Bowles. Seems the Church of England is rather upset that the heir to the throne is an adulterer. Seems no one else cares. The Queen, however, says Charles and Camilla cannot share the night before their wedding, and they have to tone down the lavish reception plans for fear of public backlash. Oh yeah and Charles has been forbidden to serve organic vegetables grown at his Highgrove estate. Way to go, Your Majesty. That's telling them. But I'd rethink that HRH title for Camilla. Seems to me that would generate a public outcry more than the organic vegetables would, but I'm an American and my thinking may be different.

And speaking of Camilla, it seems that some supermarket chain in Britain is going to be selling cheap knock-offs of Camilla's engagement ring on the day of the wedding. They're going to be selling only 1,000 rings, so get yours while they're hot only 19, or approximately US $36. What a deal. I know what I want for my birthday. And incidentally, did you know that Camilla's ring once belonged to the Queen Mother? I don't know; that doesn't sit right with me. Get your own ring, Camilla. Remember: What the Royal Family giveth, the Royal Family can taketh away.

I, for one, am so looking forward to the wedding. Unfortunately, Prime Minister Blair said he wouldn't make April 8 a national bank holiday in honor of the wedding, so I suppose it won't be televised either. Hopefully, there will be lots of photos in the magazines and on the Internet. I can't wait to see what everyone is wearing. This is so exciting. Just think soon we can look at pictures of Camilla performing her royal duties and admire her clothes and hairstyles.

I don't know if the invitations have gone out yet and I haven't heard anything about a bridal shower but I'm sure my invitation will be arriving any time. I already have something on April 8, so I will have to decline. I only hope the royal couple will understand.
