You mean they should make a stuffed version of her so children could take her to bed each night and not be afraid of the (political?) monsters hiding under their beds or in their closets?

All depends on how you define "cuddly", I guess . . .

In today's uber-patriotic nostalgia-obsessed Britain, the toys would probably sell like hot cakes.

Even a Camilla Parker Bowles action figure?

Probably not that one, no...

Camilla will never be forgiven for replacing "the People's Princess". Even though half the population hated Diana when she was alive.

Yeah, but in Diana's cae it was extreme. She went from being That Tart Who'd Let Down the Royals to Saint Diana the Eternally Blessed overnight.

So do I. Oddly enough, I think I was saying that only last week. It was that bloody record that did it.

The way she died may also have played a part, being literally hounded to death by the paparazzi.

If she'd been wearing a seatbelt, it may have been a different story. Learn from this, kids: always wear a seatbelt, or you could end up a dead legend instead of a living, rich floozy.

How does Camilla compare to the late Wallis Simpson (a.k.a. the Duchess of Windsor)?

Society today being what it is, I doubt most people even remember Mrs Simpson, and those that have heard of her see it as a romantic episode, the King giving everything up for love, while treating Camilla completely differently.

Edward VIII was a playboy prince who would have been a rubbish king. Thankfully, he gave up the throne so he could continue his relationship with an American divorcée, which the pair of them saw as deeply romantic and everybody else saw as bloody silly. They spent the rest of their lives wining, dining and contributing naff all to society. But we didn't care, because thanks to Eddie the Feeble swanning off we ended up with his niece as one of the greatest monarchs (if not THE greatest) this country has ever seen: Queen Elizabeth II.

Camilla is the woman Charles should've married in the first place, but for some reason it was thought she wasn't good enough, so Charles and Diana were basically forced to marry each other, and it made both of them deeply unhappy. Luckily, the whole ghastly episode made the Royal Family see that their progeny should have the freedom to choose whom to marry, which resulted in William marrying Kate (a Good Thing) and Harry marrying Meghan (ditto).

But aren't there some who say that they spent the rest of their lives whining?
