Is there anyone out there who still doesn't know the rumour about Prince Charles (excluding those who don't give a fig, of course)?
Anyone who monitors Popbitch, or knows someone who does, would have known about this scandal months ago, but Clarence House seems to have wanted to make it a much better known issue. The question is – if it were true, would it be enough to stop him from becoming king?
Unfortunately, the answer is no. It would be disgusting if an allegation of this type was used to justify a forced abdication, or even the collapse of the monarchy. The prince is not alleged to have done anything illegal; just something that most Mail on Sunday readers would gnash their teeth over. I find it difficult to see that there should be any damage to his chances for becoming king, save that of massive embarrassment.
On the other hand, I would like to see them all kicked out, so maybe the means justify the end?
