WELL, THAT stuffy old sourpuss Prince Charles is finally going to make an honest Rottweiler out of Camilla Parker Bowles, and those of us who got up before dawn to watch him marry Diana, our surrogate, are supposed to be down with this love-conquers-all happy ending. Spare me. Surely, those two selfish creatures helped drive Diana to her death, even if they weren't behind the wheel of that Mercedes, when they chased her, half-mad, out of the royal family and condemned her to wander Europe forever.

Poor Charles; he can bed Camilla but he can't wed her - not if he wants to be king.That was the verdict of 67,000 Britons out of 100,000 who responded to a BBC poll that asked if the Prince of Wales, 48, should assume the throne if he marries Camilla Parker Bowles, 50, his longtime mistress.The very personal decision carries potentially grave consequences for the British monarchy, weakened by the soap opera scandals involving Queen Elizabeth II's children - especially the Charles-Diana-Camilla triangle.

Royalty is not all tea and crumpets, many a crowned head has complained. Being born into a life of wealth and privilege often means not having much choice about how that life is lived - especially on the critical issue of a spouse. By long tradition, promiscuity and adultery are preferable to making the wrong legal match. Bold indeed must be the prince who stands up to family and public furor by marrying the woman he loves. Here in the birthplace of Wallis Warfield Simpson there is a soft spot for such romantics.

WHAT DO island-dwelling millionaire wannabes on TV have in common with millionaire royalty? Entertainment value, of course. We armchair viewers do love our soap operas, especially if they are "reality-based." The royals -- who long ago proved they have a flair for the dramatic -- are making a splash this summer, led by Prince William. The media sharks are betting on his coming of age and proclaiming him the best thing since ... Diana, his mother. He's got her good looks and shy smile; his preference for privacy is poignant.

Rose lovers, I come to you with good news: The season is over and we never have to see El Bachelor Juan Pablo again. Things certainly have changed since “Juanuary” when we were so excited to join Juan Pablo on his “adventura.” What we didn't know was that “adventura” meant “journey taken by a rude, arrogant, egotistical, racist, cocky, douchebag, lying, hypocritical, self-centered, offensive jerk. " Before we return to St. Lucia and bring this train wreck to a close, Chris Harris reminds us that this has been one of “the most dramatic and surprising finales” in "Bachelor" history.
