I will watch Wills and Harry's weddings. I will also watch Charles and Camilla's.

ps apparantly Princess Anne isn't going to the wedding either.

The story is, apparantly, that originally she was going out with Andrew Parker Bowles and Charles was going out with camilla

Then Anne wasn't allowed to marry Andrew cos he's a catholic, and Charles and Camilla broke up (Charles wasn't allowed to marry Camilla cos she wasn't a virgin) and Camilla married Andrew. So Anne hates Camilla cos she got the man Anne wanted

So Anne ended up with Captain Mark Phillips. Another reason Anne probably won't go to the wedding is that it falls on the same day as the horse trials which Anne orgainises

it's all just a hotbed of scandal and intrigue[/q]

DAMN!

Kind of silly, considering the Church of England was founded solely so Henry VIII could divorce Catherine of Aragon.

What amazes me is how pious the Anglican Church can be. I went to a Church Of England school as a youngster and chose to be christened at the age of 7. That was before I realised the ulterior motives of the Church's founder.

First - apologies to all who know the history of this subject, but I feel the need to outline it:

A dispensation from Pope Julius II was necessary in order to allow Henry VIII to marry his brother's widow Catherine of Aragon, and this was obtained on the basis of non-consummation. They contracted a marriage on June 11, 1509. Following difficulties with Rome over his divorce from Catherine (which was not sanctioned by the Pope, who was under pressure from Catherine's nephew, Charles V at the time), Henry split from the Roman Catholic Church, seized many of the Church's assets, and formed the Church of England. This became final with the passing of the Act of Supremacy 1536.

This is why I find it utterly daft that the C of E take such a high moral ground about divorcees remarrying: Henry VIII set it up purely so he could remarry!

I find certain aspects of the British monarchy interesting because of my historical interests, but this story is nothing but a damn soap opera if you ask me.

I've never understood that either! I'd like the Church of England to explain it to me.

One of my Episcopalian friends threw me when he said "You know, our church was founded on sex." "It was?" I wasn't thinking Anglican church, I was thinking Anabaptists or something really kinky. "Oh yes. All because Henry wanted a divorce so he could sleep with Anne Bolyen." "Oh. Oh, that..."

I think it's odd the Church still labels Charles a divorcee when he is, by their reckoning, a widower.

But verte - it's not a bit of drama - it's a fact, and is accepted by the majprity of historians in this country.

Scarily enough, this was something I learned at church school. Having been educated at Church of England schools for many years, I know a fair bit about this particular subject.

But out of interest - what do you believe wereHenry VIII's motives for establishing the C of E ?
