• Why did the Queen allow her granddaughter to be called such a common name as Zara? It sounds like a gypsy woman. Why was this allowed?

    Best answer: I quite agree. The only proper name for a scion of the Saxe Coburg Gotha dynasty is Friederike Charlotte Amalie Leopoldine Wilhelmine.

  • When or if Prince Charles ever becomes king, what EXACTLY will Camilla Parker Bowles status be?

    Best answer: Contrary to popular misconception, there is not and never was a law against the monarch's being married to a divorced person. The kerfuffle surrounding the Abdication in 1936 involved great social and religious disapproval of divorce at the time. The monarch, for example, is the Supreme Governor of the Church of England, which back then prohibited the religious remarriage of the divorced. How, people wondered, could he or she be married in a civil ceremony?

    The fact that Wallis Simpson was TWICE-divorced and also American played a role, too, and of course there's the view that some people were looking for any good excuse to get rid of Edward. If he hadn't been so problematic a personality, and if his lady love had been a once-divorced British woman, who knows? Perhaps some accommodation would have been made.

    Since then, social attitudes towards divorce have changed hugely, and the C of E has dropped its blanket prohibition of the religious remarriage of the divorced. Fully three of the Queen's children have been divorced and two have remarried. It would be rather hypocritical for the British to insist that Charles couldn't be their king, and Camilla their queen consort, when so many British citizens have also been divorced and when there is no law against it.

    As for Camilla's status, the UK does not have morganatic marriage whereby a wife gets a lesser title than the one she would normally have. Right now, she is the legal Princess of Wales even though she doesn't use the title, and she will be the legal queen consort, whether she uses that title or not. Under British Common Law, a wife takes her titles and style from her husband's. However, it will be up to King Charles, in the end, what title she actually uses, and he may decide to go with the plan he once described, that she will use the title "Princess Consort," even though there's no precedent for it.

    Parliament would have to pass an act to deprive Camilla legally of the title of "Queen Consort". That would raise some awkward issues. Since the grounds would have to be Camilla's adultery with a married prince -- there isn't any other justification -- Parliament would then have to consider whether that married prince was disqualified from becoming king because of HIS adultery. It would be a bit difficult to decide that he was, given how many British kings merrily committed adultery many times throughout their reigns. And if Charles can become king, why can't Camilla become queen consort? The double standard involved in any Parliamentary act penalizing Camilla alone would outrage many, regardless of their views of the adultery itself.

  • Does the Queen and her subjects cry on the 4th of July? They realize their better half left them in 1775.?

    Best answer: As a Brit I don't really care that we got kicked out of America years ago, it was so long ago that it doesn't matter. I thought we were friends now though? There was an American flag in my window in 2001.

  • What caused Prince Charles to have more womanly hips as seen when he wears polo trousers and to have sausage fingers?

    Best answer: Cosmetic surgery, he was always envious of people with large bottoms, and he had to have one. The sausage finger thing is a throw back to his German relatives, who all liked German sausage and had stubby fingers.

  • Is Prince William next in line to be King?

    Best answer: Charles is FIRST in line to the throne. Adultery has never been a reason to remove a person from the line of succession and it has only ever once been used as a reason to depose a monarch (in that case it was due to the kings lover being male).
