You actually have nothing to fear. She is a lovely funny friendly girl, she understands the Army and is sympathic to the life. Any Regt would be lucky to get her as Col! As an RHG/D wife she was the life and soul of the party in the mess, an all round good egg.

I'm sure there are several Regts rushing to church, down on bended knee, at this very moment collectively praying for deliverence from this Royal favour, in the full knowledge that should they be the 'lucky' Regt they will forever more be known as The Camillas. It is like reading the Mong Thread, it is entirely wrong but you just can't stop laughing.

I pray it is not my Regt. Please God.

Wrong, wrong wrong. You are lucky if it is your Regiment, she is a fun girl who understands exactly the life we lead. I don't think any of the other Royals have lived in a real service MOQ, she has, none of them has had to arrange a wives club do, she has!

So unless you have reaLLY MET HER (i HAVE) don't knock a nice woman who knows all about Army life and would be a bonus to any regiment.

Hey Paymaster, you miss my point. I'm sure she is the bees-knees of genuine and nice people and without knowing her I'll bet she'll do a better job than wife No 1. But it's the name man. The 'lucky' Regt will certainly become known as The Carmillas.

Think of it this way: Whichever regiment gets this honor is unlikely to be abolished by the Labour government. :wink:

Ooh Blimey! What a thought.

When 'we' got started as PWRR, various wags called us 'Camilla's Commandos' even back then when HRH was still married to the last Colonel in Chief of the Royal Hampshires.

If anyone had a sense of humour or even a touch of irony, surely she should be made Col in Chief of her husband's (the first one, that is) regiment!! Hoot hoot bray bray......

Suggest it would be quite difficult (politically and socially) to turn around to the Queen of Denmark and take PWRR off her. Look further east or West of them. I thought the R Ang and DDLI were openly mentioned??

Not entirely sure this has been suggested? Heaven forbid.

The Queen of Denmark is a top bird, excuse me Your Majesty, and 'we' wouldn't ever consider parting company.

We did however 'lose' the Dutch connection a few years ago. Mess nights used to be murder for the new subby and guests alike: the Dutch national anthem is an abomination, and the cause of much tittering spawning extras by the dozen! What a palaver: first the Loyal toast, drunk seated and individually in rotation - bags of scope for a blunder, then the Dutch anthem and second toast - Mr Vice, pished or shitting himself or both, tries to get right name for right Queen, then the Danish anthem - Mr Vice thinks: 'Eek, what did I say last time? And has to propose the THIRD toast. Old lag QM type at his elbow whispers wrong name, or farts. Just to help, the Dutch Queen abdicates and becomes a princess, so gets toasted last.
