R20 Last week on one of the cable news shows (I think it was CNN), a royal biographer who once worked 'behind the scenes' with the Royal Family said that they are indeed in the process of planning 2 royal funerals - one for Charles and one for Kate. That's protocol when a royal is diagnosed with cancer, no matter how serious the cancer is or what the prognosis is. It's something required.

So yes, both their funerals are being planned at this time.

We are assuming the In Touch magazine article is correct about the diagnosis. Survival period depends greatly on the stage. If it's stage 1, it may be curable (long term survivor of 5-12 years) . If it's 2-3 it's anywhere between 6 months to 2 years. If it's stage 4 it can be anywhere from 2 weeks to 6 months.

If it were a treatable form of cancer with likely good outcomes, they would have said what he has. The fact that they are not saying, suggests that it is something bad; and pancreatic cancer is bad.

The same may be true for Kate, though the types of cancer she might have, given the information we already have, suggests her prospects for a good outcome are better.

So Charles admitted that he was being hospitalized for a procedure on his prostate. Probably an enlarged prostate, maybe they removed it. It happens. But it was NOT prostate cancer. That was clearly stated by the Palace. According to them the doctors discovered cancer elsewhere. Now to me that may mean colon or rectal cancer, or bladder cancer. The prostate is not adjacent to the pancreas. The pancreas is part of the digestive system and is particularly responsible for insulin. So I'm thinking not pancreatic cancer.

With all the new ways to treat cancer today, it is possible both Charles and Catherine are on a course to first deal with the cancer, then do the adjuvant (preventive) Chemo to zap it where ever else it may be. Here's what puzzles me. Both of them had surgery. According to reports from experts, today most cancers are found unexpectedly while treating other illnesses. My own Oncologist said when we mwet, that most of the time, when they find cancer the main thing is to get it out. Surgery. Not always but most of the time. It seems like further surgery on Charles wasn't an option. That part is worrying.

My sister told me about a week ago he had pancreatic cancer and had 2 years. How she knew this I have no idea. It came up on my news feed today he had pancreatic cancer and he has two years.

My mother died of it in November. I was her caregiver at the end and it was unbelievably ugly. Things happen to the body I didn't think were possible. There was a night of horrible throwing up. She said I haven't been eating anything how am I throwing all this up? The hospice worker told me she was throwing up her stomach. I did not ask her to tell me this.

When a patient starts their decline it seems best to put them under as in a coma with morphine. I wish we had done it earlier with my mother. But it is so hard to do even if they are in extreme discomfort. But though she was alive she after the heavy doses of morphine she went into a deep sleep and she had found peace. She even started having a younger face. Still the hospice worker told me to go to her and tell her it was okay to go. I said she was unconscious. The hospice worker said it didn't matter she'll hear you. I did it. But I still don't believe it. She died the next day. I was told when she was about to die. I held her face in my hands to feel her warmth and listened to her breath. I kissed her and told her how much I loved her and then I left. Shortly after my sister came to tell me she had died. I was on the couch and a deep sleep came over me. When I came to I was told my sister had washed her body and my mother's body had been taken out by the funeral workers.

I never liked Charles but how I feel for him.

We have lost all perspective in terms of human life expectancy.

Charles was born in 1948. He is now 75.

In the US, the life expectancy of a male born in 1948 is 65. If a person born that year makes it to age 65, they generally have 12-13 years left. That's according to the Social Security Administration.

Don't know how that differs in Britain, but I can't imagine it's a vast gulf.

Thank you R152. A woman with an unhappy childhood behind her. I I loved her very much and will always miss her. We did have some wonderful times together. It was at the point where I was the parent and I will miss tucking her in at night and finding a television show she would enjoy. The last thing I made for her was an ice cream soda with coke and vanilla ice cream. Oh boy did she enjoy that. I think it was the coldness and sweetness and it was so refreshing. Maybe if we hadn't kept her at home they wouldn't have allowed me to do it. After that I fed her teaspoons a vanilla ice cream which she loved. She had round the clock care from her children with hospice workers coming in for a few hours every day. One of the last things she said to my sister was she felt like a queen.

I, too, told her it was all right to go and five minutes later she died. As you describe, in the moment after she died, it seemed that all the lines and wrinkles on her face disappeared and she looked like a young woman again.

He made enormous, very public mistakes in judgement and cheated on a very popular wife. They divorced. She died tragically. He remarried his long time LOVE, and now he is struggling with illness after finally ascending to the throne. Charles has been a f ixture in my life so when he dies it will be as if a part of my own history has died.

[QUOTE]Dying so soon after his mother will make his reign completely unnotable.

I think Charles will be more notable for many other achievements rather than his reign as monarch. Starting the Prince's Trust and other effective charitable works, being forward thinking and acting about the environment and sustainability, and making the Duchy of Cornwall very profitable are not a shabby legacies at all. I'd prefer them actually.

Unless someone is wholly unfit to be monarch due to disease (like George III after a certain point) or poor character, judgment or intellectual impairment (Edward VIII, Prince Andrew, Prince Harry), the role of Monarch is very cookie cutter and rote, following the rule of the Government. Pretty much anyone with a decent education and (this is the clincher) good social and diplomatic skills as well as discretion, can do it. Charles has those. His reign won't be remembered as being drastically different from predecessors before his mother. She's in a pantheon all by herself.

The 2 biggest scandals in the BRF were the Abdication of 1936 & and the Tampon, the slattern and Princess of Wales British soap opera which lead to her Death in 1997.

R253 if you’re going to make tired jokes you could at least get the details right.

The “Gloucestershire Slattern” as you call her - note correct spelling - is from East Sussex and was living in Wiltshire during her first marriage. East Sussex and Wiltshire are not Gloucestershire.

Charles never said that he wanted to be her tampon - quite the opposite, in fact.

But do continue with the King Tampon joke - you’re obviously somewhat limited.

Charles' impact will not be measured by how long he reigns. He has had a significant, lasting impact on the world. I'm very fond of him so maybe my judgement is clouded. But his impact transcends the monarchy.

[quote]Wigs very very rarely look realistic, we know that from watching mega budget blockbuster films.

I would agree with most comments about it not being a wig UNTIL you zoom in. It is pixelated and aribrushed beyond belief right where the netting of a lacefront wig would be around the forehead and temples. Wigs like the queen might have can cost up to $50K. At 96, it would make absolute sense for someone her age and someone who was so visible to wear a wig in a way to maintain continuity through the ages, even the the hair changes. 90% of you don't know how realistic lace front wigs are - especially with makeup and airbrushing.

I was always somewhat apathetic about Charles, neither cared for him or disliked him. His marriage to Diana was somewhat coerced because he was in love with the already married Camilla. He was hoping she would divorce her husband and marry him, but that was forbidden for a royal prince. Yet after marrying Diana he was still carrying on his affair with Camilla.

After seeing The Crown, and Josh O'Connor's sympathetic portrayal of Charles, it humanized him in my eyes so I could understand the nuances and shades of grey in his life.

r214 one of people's biggest fears about dying is the people being left behind. Those words comfort them to let them know you are going to be OK, and that you are OK with them dying. It releases them from needing to console you with their own death. That is why a lot of people pass shortly after some peace has been reached with their loved ones.

My grandmother passed this way. My mother had moved back to Ohio to take care of her. My grandmother's death was unexpected, she wasn't sick, just old. And of course my mother was visiting me in another state when she got the call that my grandmother had had a stroke. My mother was so distraught that she wasn't there and the doctors said my grandmother probably had about eight more hours to live. We rushed and got my mom on a plane back home. Of course there were delays that took her way over the eight hours. But my grandmother held on. My mom rushed from the airport to the hospital. I remember calling her along every step of the way to see if grandma was still alive. She was. It was fifteen hours later when my mom finally arrived by her side. My mom read to her from the Bible, kissed her face and sang to her. She died within the hour. She held on just long enough for her baby girl to say goodbye to her. And when she had, she died.

My biggest fear is not my own death, but that I will not have time to say goodbye to my mother before she dies.

They take their religion seriously and do not hope to profit from selling its foundational Book, nor do they hold to the "Divine Right of Kings" who are above man's law.

They neither hoard, steal, nor sell Top Secret national documents.

They have not publicly mocked in words or gestures the infirm, women, POC, or immigrants; nor have they publicly praised despots, White Supremacists, insurrectionists, or felons.

The BRF has not in words or pictures threatened the lives of others, nor called perceived opponents "enemies of the people."

Just for you, r274. Your fellow American Biden seems to be a big fan of the royals, Charles especially.

You age yourself when you say "Charles will never ever be forgiven for how he treated Diana". Only Americans - admittedly, usually gay men - over 55 come out with crap like that. It's not the 1990s anymore, you should stop trying to relive the "glory days" of your 30s. Diana herself seemed to have "forgiven" Charles and after their divorce they had cordial relations. Not that there was anything to forgive him for, as Diana herself played a role in the breakdown of their marriage.

What a bizarre obsession anyway. Are you this rabid about other people's divorces too? And still decades later? Marriages don't always work out, big deal. If anyone should know that, it's you, who's never managed to sustain a relationship.

If you truly are a Diana fan, then it's odd that you're anti-monarchy because Diana was a fervent believer. No doubt you will support her son William when he becomes king, because that was one of the most important things in her life.

R302 and r303, I mentioned grammar only because I was accused of not knowing my British history, when for 30 years I actually taught it. So when I referred to the living BRF, whose late Queen remained with her family in London during the Blitz, I didn't appreciate a lecture on the previous one that abdicated pre-coronation, no less. (Any time you want to discuss, say, the Inter-Regnum, do let me know.)

To call me a Nazi or neo-Nazi is so stupid, so in error, so, in fact, bizarre, you have no idea. No. Idea.

You will no doubt cast vulgar aspersions on this now, but nevertheless I tell you I am an unwavering Zionist (and a Catholic one, to boot!), and have been since I read "The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich" as a young teen. I have books on every major Mossad operation, with my favorite book's being Simon Reeve's superb "One Day In September" (Munich 1972 and the Israeli revenge. BTW: Spielberg's "Munich" is inferior to "Sword of Gideon.") I prefer "The House On Garibaldi Street" of both books and movies about the capture of Eichmann.

I can list for you Palestinian and pro-Palestinian terrorist organizations and many of their more destructive attacks. Do you know why they were harried out of Jordan on a "Black September" day?

And not to put too fine a point on it, but I am of the opinion that the ferocity and duration of the current Israeli response to Hamas in Gaza is directly due, not just to the number of murders of young Israelis, but to the sexual savagery and depravity of the slayings. I am pitiless regarding vengeance.

I have been to the Dachau concentration camp.

Anne is everyone's favorite royal because she takes after her mother so much. She doesn't get sucked into dramas and seems to have a low tolerance for nonsense, vanity, and navel gazing. She's a workhorse who just buttons up and "gets on with it" in that uniquely British way.

It's always frizzy and sloppy and dry. And speaking of dry, has she ever heard of moisturizer. That roadmap of lines on her face tells me she just doesn't even make an effort. I suspect she always wears gloves because she has no manicure. Do not even get me started about her teeth. Maybe she wants the image of a simple country woman, but she isn't.

I’m just a little embarrassed at knowing this.

But Anne rocks - no nonsense, no complaints and can do no wrong as far as I’m concerned.

R345, here, yes I am hard on Anne but honestly to be more balanced I will say she has a good figure and nice legs and it just seems like she deliberately dresses to distract attention from herself.

by Anonymousreply 347April 2, 2024 1:34 AM

For Anne's Easter look, if she had lost the boots and bag and added burgundy/oxblood tights, leather t-strap heels that matched her gloves, and a simple peach clutch, her outfit would have been perfection.

R345 proving that as an American he knows absolutely nothing about the English aristocracy, especially those of Anne’s generation. She has a great figure and is very fit with all the horse riding and striding purposefully around Gatcombe Park. Why should she colour her hair? Why should she “make an effort” about her wrinkles? She’s earned them. Just because she hasn’t had her teeth bleached and bonded to blinding white chiclets like any basic American “celebrity” doesn’t mean that they are not healthy.

She is not a Bel Air housewife and has no need to appear to be so. She has had the good fortune to be born into immense wealth and privilege while recognising that she earns her keep with the workload that she maintains.

Interestingly Sophie and Catherine, as you pointed out, probably make more of an effort on their appearance (Sophie less successfully so). They are both middle class women who married up and as such I assume that they feel the need to try harder. Anne was born at the top of the heap - she has no need to impress anyone with anything other than her achievements such as competing at the Olympics, winning a medal at the European riding championships, sponsoring an annual eventing day at her estate, working tirelessly for Save the Children for decades and representing the monarch faultlessly - with the occasional hiccup - all her adult life.

R345 you think that she should do better? I’d love to see you suggest that to her face. She’s the Princess Royal not Candy Spelling.

R349, she is a public figure. Period. And she presents as someone who doesn't give a fuck how she looks. Can't be bothered. It's not about "marrying up" it's about having duties that require one to be in the public eye. Meeting people, spending time, etc. and those people make the effort to look their best for the Royals they're meeting, so I would think out of respect the Royals would do likewise. Camilla, Sophie and Catherine do. Anne does not.

R352 you’re still not getting it, but that’s ok. Just remember that Anne was born royal, Camilla, Catherine and Sophie all married in and up. But I’m not going to repeat what I’ve already said - reading for comprehension is obviously not one of your core competencies.

All that I can add is that I can’t recall any of the hundreds of people who she encounters on the royal circuit each year complaining that she didn’t condition her hair, pump her face full of fillers or get a Hollywood Smile. It’s about authenticity, not plasticity, but as an American that’s probably rather a foreign concept to you.

Anne will no doubt soldier on in her bad fashion (which still fits her after 40 years of rewearings), being interested and interesting, jumping in and out of helicopters on her way to a regiment or hospital or touring Save the Children sites in Africa and the Middle East and enjoying her time at home overseeing her magnificent Gloucestershire estate surrounded by her large and extended family, all of whom like her and each other enough to live on the estate as well - husbands, wives, exes, children. She must be doing something right.

R354 there is no need to be so ill bred and so rude that you find it necessary to call my reading comprehension, my nationality, and in fact my entire life in to question compared to the beloved Princess Royal. As a matter of fact I have had a very eventful life. I am a bit younger than Anne but my main point still holds. It has nothing to do with the fact she was "born Royal." In point of fact I have seen a lot of photos of a younger Anne who did make the effort. I don't recall saying anything about fillers or cosmetic surgery. My focus was on basic grooming. You know. The way Horses get groomed. LOL! It is very possible to groom your hair into a nice "no fuss" style that is still becoming. As I said, the people who get to meet Anne all make the effort to look their best and dress as correctly as possible because they're meeting the Princess Royal. It is a matter of respect.

R359 Oxblood and mint green go gorgeously together, especially when paired with peach. It also pairs beautifully with cognac brown leather. It's the perfect, not-too-pastel-precious Easter color scheme. Royal blue tights do not give Easter at all. Royal blue against that coat would make it look seafoam green and she would look like a Caribbean hotel lobby.

Exactly right, R366. “Be yourself” - who could argue with that?

by Anonymousreply 367April 2, 2024 5:28 AM

R363 I am trying to help you here - you are trying to apply American standards of appearance, grooming and fashion for a “celebrity” to someone who is neither American nor a celebrity. And that won’t work, nor should it.

If you could, just for a moment, take a peek outside your American bubble you might possibly understand that America is not the rest of the world and that the rest of the world, for better or for worse, often operates on a different paradigm. In this case you want the 74 year old Princess Anne, daughter of a reigning queen and a prince of Greece and Denmark, granddaughter of a reigning king, a Queen consort formerly daughter of an Earl, a Princess of Greece and Denmark (formerly a princess of the UK and grand-daughter of Queen Victoria) and a prince of Greece and Denmark to conform to your idea of what a celebrity should look like. She should dye and condition her hair, moisturise her skin, pump her face full of fillers and get her teeth capped to Trumpian chiclet brilliance. A makeover, perhaps?

The people who Anne meets every day, and I would suggest the people of the UK on the whole, couldn’t give a fuck about that stuff for her. The only member of the British royal family who played to the masses with a focus on her appearance was Anne’s late sister in law Diana, and we all know how that worked out.

Maybe you should focus on that pretend Countess on the Real Housewives franchise, or on that ridiculous faux Duchess in Montecito, and project your idea of how they should look on them, because all that you are doing now is looking a bit silly and out of your depth when you try to do otherwise.

I guess I'm going to comment once more even after saying I wouldn't. I really think you are going down the wrong road by making assumptions about me being in an American bubble, and regarding my preference for capped teeth, "Trumpian chiclet brilliance" . I don't know why you insist on saying I want her to get fillers. That's a ridiculous notion. I never said it. I have no idea who you refer to when you speak of pretend Countess on the Real Housewives franchise, nor have any interest in them. But I guess this is your way of casting me in an image of disdain. You draw a silly, false profile of me, based on assumptions and demonstrable of your own ignorance of who I am in order to attack comments I never made. It's a weak, transparent strategy. And I am very familiar with the bloodlines of The Princess Royal. I admire her very much. She has always been a favorite of mine.

But I would point out to you once again, that the people who come to see her, who are excited to shake hands or get their knighthood or whatever, have done their very best to present themselves in the best possible light out of respect for her and the family she represents. And I wish she would take a little more care to do the same for them. Her mother certainly did, as did her Aunt Margaret, and her Grandmother. And honestly you do not speak for all the people you claim ""couldn't give a f uck" about that. And this really is my last post, because I find these arguments you're presenting tiresome.

R377 and it just gets weirder thanks to whoever you’re referring to. Trust me, if you have pancreatitis, you will have been diagnosed with it. Otherwise you might say that you’ve got ungodly abdominal pain, but no one would smack themselves on the forehead after feeling that pain and say, “I have pancreatitis.”

The symptoms are diffuse and non- specific and physical exams more often than not do not result in an accurate diagnosis. It can be fatal. But pancreatitis (painful but usually manageable ) and pancreatic cancer (painful and most often fatal) are different diseases.

R390, I thought the unattributed quote was enough to make it clear I was quoting from someone higher up this thread. I don't know why you thought I would confuse pancreatitis with pancreatic cancer, nor why you think "potentially fatal" = "untreatable". In your own post you say it is hard to get an accurate diagnosis for. The key message remains, "If you think you might have it, get it properly diagnosed and treated, because it may not be cancer but left to its own devices it can kill you."

R378, I do apologise for my tone. Because of a big time difference with the USA I often come to threads very late. I realise I'm coming in late and try not to repeat what has already been said, so I had just read through 376 posts, at least half of which had not read any of the thread, about a quarter of which had misinterpreted something they had read quickly, and nearly all of which were talking very earnestly about an incredibly hypothetical rumour (that Charles has pancreatic cancer) as though it was proved. The conversation went round and round without progress. It was late at night here and it all got a bit much. I persisted because I thought it was important, if nobody else had, to point out how serious pancreatitis is, since the original poster was a bit offhand about it. I should have just skipped it.
