Prince Charles Said "I Love Camilla"

This week marks the first week of married life for Charles and Camilla. One newspaper touted this as "The End of the Affair." Some were disappointed that Charles did not kiss Camilla in public, but he has too much class to hand the tabloids a feeding frenzy when they are in his business enough as it is. He did say, in a toast, "I love Camilla!"

The Associated Press quotes comedienne Joan Rivers:
"It was so obvious how happy they were, that just radiated from the whole room," said the comedian Joan Rivers, who attended the party. "There was no formality, no reception line, they mingled. ... It was so fabulous, it was really like a family and friends get-together."
"When Charles made his toast a whoop went up when he said 'I love Camilla,' that's what made it truly different and special," Rivers said in a telephone interview.

"Brits Warm To Charles and Camilla"
Presently, the newlyweds are spending the week at Birkhall, a hunting lodge on the Queen's Balmoral estate in Scotland. "The Prince has described the early 18th-century home on the royal Balmoral estate as 'a unique haven of coziness and character'. He reportedly learned to fish in the River Muick, which flows at the bottom of Birkhall's sloping garden. Queen Victoria's husband, Prince Albert, bought Birkhall in the 19th century and it became the Balmoral residence of Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, who died in 2002, leaving it to Charles."
