Prince Charles wedding may be delayed by Papal funeral after all

Yesterday, Prince Charles was quoted as saying that he wouldn't delay his wedding to Camilla Parker-Secretariat, even if the funeral for Pope John Paul II was Friday, the date originally chosen for his nuptuals. But new word this morning is that the wedding date may change after all.

Prince Charles' office indicated Monday that his wedding to Camilla Parker Bowles could be rescheduled so that it would not conflict with Friday's funeral for Pope John Paul II.

Charles cut short his Swiss skiing holiday to attend a memorial service for the pope in London later Monday, his office added. Parker Bowles also planned to attend the service at Westminster Cathedral, it said.

Meanwhile, a replica of Camilla Parker-Bowles' wedding ring went on sale in London this weekend. The ring, to be given to her by Charles, previously belonged to the late Queen Mother Elizabeth. The replica, in stirling silver and cubic zirconia, is retailing for $34 and is in a limited run of 2500.

UPDATE - 12N - Word has come down that the Prince's wedding to Secretariat will take place on Saturday. It wouldn't look good for the grand high poohbah of the Church of England to be officiating for a wedding instead of attending the Pope's funeral. Plus it sounds like Chuck's daddy will be in Rome as well.

Hey, Secretariat was beautiful. It's very cruel of you to insult him.

They cannot allow Prince Phillip at the Pope's funeral. He'll make some inappropriate Phillip Like comment about Poles and or Catholics.

Well . . . I'm sure Chuck is there to make sure Daddy doesn't say anything stupid. Heh.

I'm sure looking forward to seeing Prince Williams reign as King, if monarchy somehow survives in Great Britain.

Not fair! I thought horse references were restricted to Princess Ann.
