It's been published in an Australian magazine and also the Bristol Post (random ) that the above couple are living separate lives etc. in preparation for signing divorce papers.

Has anyone else read or heard this ? Can't imagine they'd bother or that Her Maj would allow such a thing . Again .

I hear that the Spice Girls and Oasis are reforming for a special joint gig at a private club in Helsinki.

I’ve read that too, she’s not been seen for ages, personally I think she very ill.

I thought it odd when she missed the christening recently and then realised I hadn’t seen her for ages. I hope things are ok, I can’t imagine they will be divorcing as they genuinely seem very much in love. I do hope she’s not unwell.

She was in Scotland with Charles a couple of days ago

No, no divorce.

Yeah and early last year an announcement of their divorce was imminent too. I can't see it they seem very happy together but have never lived in each others pockets

She did a couple of public engagements mid-December and seemed fine then, although she was reported to have had a heavy cold over Christmas. Which christening did she miss? She was at Prince Louis' christening (back in July) - has there been another one since that she might have been expected to be at?

Fake news

I think they appear to lead such separate lives so there would be no need to divorce.

LaurelAndMardy Mon 14-Jan-19 00:23:31

God I’m tired, I genuinely read that as Charles and Diana divorce and was thinking umm, you’re a few decades late to that!

RomanticFatigue Mon 14-Jan-19 00:26:45

I'd be surprised but I have heard they've kept their lives quite separate since they married as it works for them. Who knows what goes on behind anyone's closed doors?

When I read your post OP I thought it must be load of rubbish but Cheshire Live asked Clarence house for a comment as to whether Charles is in talks with Fiona Shackleton but they've said "no comment" (to be expected) so they haven't denied the rumours..just for the record I know the palace would never confirm it, but they always seem to deny outright lies though..which makes me think something is amiss. I hope not though.

God I hope not. It will stay in the newspapers for the rest of the year at the very least.

Is this the same Australian news outlet that late last year said princess Beatrice was pregnant and had fled to Australia to secretly give birth?

My mother believed that until I pointed out that if the princess was actually pregnant then Sydney Australia isn’t exactly the place you would hide

To a degree they do lead somewhat separate lives.
Charles is an utter workaholic who has a teeny tiny breakfast, works all day and then has a decent meal around 8pm.
He likes total order in his very very tidy homes. He was born royal and is used to having staff - he knows no other way.
Camilla - who remember was famously described by her friends as “ the laziest woman in Britain” does not have anywhere near the workload of Charles. She does not have boxes and boxes of documents to read and piles of research that have been done.
She does quite a lot of engagements with Charles and does a fair amount of solo work too- mainly of her chosen charities and interests ( children, osteoporosis, victims of rape)
Camilla tends to escape from Clarence House on a Friday. She goes to Ray Mill House, which is her home that she purchased after her divorce from Andrew Parker -Bowles. She has no staff, the house is comfortably messy, her grandchildren visit with her children very often and they can mess about, run, make noise, play and enjoy themselves. Charles can’t bear the noise and the mess and the touching of his things ( which is his prerogative).
Camilla will often cook and it is here that she can just be ‘camilla’, or ‘mum’ or ‘granny’. She can utterly relax there. She has a woman come in to clean but no other staff. No live in staff ( her police protection stay in a little building in the grounds).

I think on the whole Charles and Camilla are very happy.
And even if they were not I don’t think for one second they would divorce. I can’t see either of them wanting to marry again and just as long as they do a few engagements together and look like they are getting on we wouldn’t be any the wiser. They could live separate lives - they have enough homes and bedrooms!

I am impressed she has no staff

She has increased in my estimates (not that my opinion matters)

If I was her, I’d have staff up the Gazoo

Wedding not christening maybe?

I doubt they'd be getting divorced. I think it just suits them not being together all the time.

jessstan2 Mon 14-Jan-19 01:08:04

Until proved otherwise.

Notmyrealname85 Mon 14-Jan-19 01:09:34

I’m more interested in how little gets printed in the UK, less maybe restrictions by the royals (not sure they can censure much?) and more board of managers of these papers wanting to keep their chances of knighthoods safe!!

Dreamscomingtrue Mon 14-Jan-19 01:18:50

It wasn’t a christening that she didn’t attend, it was Eugenies wedding, I think I read it was because she didn’t get on with Fergie.

AcrossthePond55 Mon 14-Jan-19 01:19:08

After all the drama and tribulations it took for them to actually marry, I doubt very much if they'll ever divorce. I think they're both old enough and 'old school' enough that if they have discovered they're incompatible they'll agree to live separate lives and put on a good 'public face'.

I think they're both just people who enjoy a lot of 'me time' and have the wherewithal to have separate 'establishments' to facilitate it. Sounds like a recipe for a very happy marriage to me! I love my DH to death, but there are times I wish I had a Ray Mill House or a Highgrove to decamp to!!!

I hope this isn't true. Prince Charles and Princess Meghan are the only people keeping this country together due to all the Brexit strife. If they split up goodness knows what will happen.

IdaBWells Mon 14-Jan-19 01:29:22

They seem very unlikely to divorce as both seem to have carved out extremely comfortable lives for themselves and are always holding hands and seem besotted, but stranger things have happened. I don’t think Charles would cope well without her though!

Notmyrealname85 Mon 14-Jan-19 01:33:23

I’ll have whatever mobyduck’s having...
