Charles, Camilla To Wed

02-10-05 - Prince Charles is getting hitched. His office has announced that he's going to marry his partner Camilla Parker Bowles. Charles was previously married to Princess Diana, who died in a car crash in Paris in 1997. She had been divorced from Charles at the time of her death.

The marriage is a sensitive issue because Parker Bowles is divorced and her former husband is still alive. Charles would be the supreme governor of the Church of England if he took the throne, and some Anglicans remain opposed to remarriage after divorce. The church is officially neutral on the issue.

Last year, a poll indicated that more Britons support Prince Charles marrying Camilla Parker Bowles than oppose it.

No official word on when the wedding will take place, but Sky News T-V says it'll be April Sixth.
