Prince Charles  began his first visit to Canada with the Duchess of Cornwall on Monday by making an impassioned appeal for global leadership on climate change. Charles and Camilla will embarked on an 11 day tour that includes four provinces such as Newfoundland,Ontatio,British Columbia and Quebec.


Before long, the wait is over- for some die hard fans of the  Royal Family.

The Royal Family suffered a devastating shame and embarassment when the royal children-particulary in terms of their marriages succumb to failure.

And now, the Prince of Wales is in Canada right now for his Canadian Tour of four provinces with none other than Camilla.

Before the anticipated arrival, there had been numerous surveys done and the result over the radio, print media, television showed a shocking revelation of  unity-  that Canadians care less.

Was the public reaction even here in Canada somehow still trigger the Diana effect ?


Much to my surprise, most people still treasured the fallen DIANA and I love the feeling of being able to relate to that sentiment though I would rather be more discreet at pointing my fingers to blame.

Almost  more than a decade, after the death of the Princess of Wales – as far as Canada, Diana is still very much missed, revered and love.

On the other hand, I admire Camilla’s strong will to take the stone cast being  thrown at her even up to now….


 She no longer is the mistress who was dubbed the  family wrecker…she is now the wife to  Charles, the Prince of Wales….for some reason Camilla seem to find it hard to win the public sympathy and admiration.

The public  sympathy, admiration and adulation that had followed Diana even up to her untimely death seems to be illusive for Camilla.


I realized, people forgive…..but they don’t forget.

Most people , mostly women from different part of the world, across languages and culture had been captivated by the life of  Diana Spencer- merely because they all can relate to the personal injustices and experiences Diana went through and weathered the storm and emerged victorious only to have life snapped out of her so soon in the end.

Such was the tragic end for the lovely Princess, that even now up to this very moment of the Prince of Wales visit to Canada….Diana’s memory looms everywhere…

It was his visit….but he seems to bring up Diana’s memory even more and the public seems to still harbour those bad old feelings for him and Camilla.

People can be unfogiving, that is the lesson maybe the Prince is finding .

There are some people who are more forgiving because afterall he was the son of the Queen, our Head of State and in a way he represents her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

I look forward to a successful end of his Canadian tour.
