Well, as the old Order changes and we're in Transition time now, it seems the verdict of the British people has been clear in polling for years now, and it isn't in Charles's favour. It will be interesting to see if and when approval ratings change in the new reign, as at the moment Charles's figures for a hard working Heir consistently hover way under his mother, daughter in law and sons. About half his mother and sons, in fact.

Some of the disapproval harnesses other factors, (perceived eccentrities, interfering in the political process), but a large dollop consists of the C and D marriage, how it ended and the influence of Camilla, whose approval figures hover between 'disastrous' and 'abysmal' in spite of attempts at rehabilitation and whitewash. Good luck on changing those views in the future  on a couple in their seventies with no aces to play.

I just wish the new thread had been kept on the Diana board, though :flower:

I respectfully disagree @Duch_Luver_4ever and IMHO a neutral forum like this one is the best place to discuss the marital issues of the couple. I know I'm being overly optimistic but I believe this will keep their respective forums a place to post about each without the WWW (World War Wales) coming up in nearly every thread.

I also like this format better, as often on the Diana board a thread would start off with something innocuous like 'Diana's education' and end up being a bash-fest about her supposed lack of brain power, application, shortcomings etc. Plus, if the thread was headed by 'Diana did this, that and the other', attempts to draw attention to any culpability by Camilla or Charles would be headed off by 'We're discussing Diana, not Charles!'

^^^And likewise I've seen threads regarding Charles and Camilla's engagements or even the future incoming USA State Visit turn into a similar "bash fest" (Great description @Curryong!) with the War of The Wales being dragged in for no apparent reason.

All in all I believe that this is the best thread to discuss the issues surrounding  the Wales' marriage.
