I think it's wonderfully romatic, genuine true love. I'm buying a commemorative mug (if I can remember). No I'm not taking the piss, he's loved one woman for 30 years, in spite of everyone telling him to never marry her he's going to anyway. Good for him. As usual, my opinions in a tiny minority, I suppose.

Can't be arsed to write backwards, though. Are you guys using Babelfish or are you laboriously typing things in, ?os ekil

I just watched them come out of The Guildhall and thought it was bizarre because it was so incredibly low key and normal - they just looked like an ordinary couple in late middle age on their second wedding. She looked very ill at ease and he didn't look much better, most odd. And I suppose we didn't really ever think we'd see them married. The typing backwards is a PITA to read btw.

Have i missed something?
Why is everyone writing backwards on every thread I visit? Feel like I'm being excluded from a secret club!

As to the wedding....Aaaaaahhhh!!
I think it's sooo romantic, they are obviously in very much in love.
In generations to come it will be a love story like Edward and Mrs. Simpson.
Think all these commentators and celebs are being terribly hypocritical, being all nice about her now! And all claimimg to be her 'friend'!

Good luck to them!
It's a shame Charles dithered about 35 years ago, but then we wouldn't have the gorgeous Prince Will would we?
Everything happens for a reason.

I suppose MN has a strong community feel, self-identity, so those joining in the game of writing backwards are enjoying it, it's not that awful, is it WWW?

Doesn't Zara Phillips look ridiculous?

How sad that a couple of middle-aged to oldish people can't just get married with everybody feeling like they are entitled to some kind of say on it

Good luck to them, I wish them a long and happy life together

I like Camilla, she seems a strong independent lady who couldn't give a fig for PR, all strength to her

and no, I'm not a royalist

we are watching the coverage over here downunder, and they are slagging off camilla and talking about the affair and replaying the tampax tape... are they doing it in the UK? It seems a bit mean on her wedding day

I just found the poet laureate's offering in the Guardian - it's rather nice:

Spring Wedding

I took your news outdoors, and strolled a while
In silence on my square of garden-ground
Where I could dim the roar of arguments,
Ignore the scandal-flywheel whirring round,

And hear instead the green fuse in the flower
Ignite, the breeze stretch out a shadow-hand
To ruffle blossom on its sticking points,
The blackbirds sing, and singing take their stand.

I took your news outdoors, and found the Spring
Had honoured all its promises to start
Disclosing how the principles of earth
Can make a common purpose with the heart.

The heart which slips and sidles like a stream
Weighed down by winter-wreckage near its source -
But given time, and come the clearing rain,
Breaks loose to revel in its proper course.

No they're not doing that here Suzywong, it's all quite nice and polite the coverage. Zebra, I couldn't care less if people want to type backwards, it's up to them but it does take longer to read and since I grab a minute or 2 on mn (children allowing) as I pass, I do find it a bit of a PITA, but don't really object to anyone doing it, just haven't really got time to read it all. It's no big deal!

suzywong Sat 09-Apr-05 14:01:40

oh thanks for that www, they are really dishing the dirt over here, my parents are here at the moment and they can't quite believe the cheek of the Colonials. They've dug up all kinds of people to dish dirt - it's great!

This typing backwards thing is like prison slang

suzzy is right - one channel was all lovely and polite and supportive. Another channel in the cut back to the station and such had the whole sorry sordid saga of Charles, Diana, Camilla, tampon phone call and so on playing!!!
