Duchess of Cornwall To Pass On Princess of Wales Memorial

No doubt the memorial scheduled for Diana, Princess of Wales, has put a few senior royals in an awkward position.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketShould they attend even though their disdain for Diana had always been public? Would attending look two-faced? Would not attending look like a snub?

None have felt the sharpest part of this double-edged sword like the Duchess of Cornwall. As the third person in the marriage of the Prince and Princess of Wales, Camilla is as inextricably bound up in the Diana saga, even more so than Dodi Fayed, Henri Paul, or even Trevor Rhys-Jones.

Prince William and Prince Harry invited her, which is only right; Her Royal Highness has declined the invitation which, again, is only right.

Diana's memorial is scheduled to take place this coming Friday, ten years to the day Diana died in Paris.

Why in the world he held on and held on, despite the fact that his presence had entirely demoralized the Department of Justice, is anybody's guess. Why he quit so suddenly after doing inestimable damage to the title, the administration, and the country, is something only he knows for sure.

But why he left so soon after Karl Rove is easily deduced; it's what rats do when the ship is sinking. As you'll discover if you read the source article, darker forces may be at work, even darker than the blots Alberto Gonzales left on the reputation of the office of Attorney-General...
