Re: Royals take quick taste of our city (May 22). I wasn't surprised by the mediocre turnout to see Prince Charles and his wife. I have been confused as to why Charles will supposedly ascend to the throne, taking his former mistress with him.
The reason he's even in line to the throne is because his uncle abdicated to marry a divorcee. Charles married a divorcee -- a former mistress who played a pivotal role in ending his marriage -- yet remains in line for the throne.
I truly hope that he will allow himself to be bypassed so that our next monarch will be King William.
Otherwise, I fear that the monarchy will not survive.
