Prince Charles Calls Prince William & Kate Middleton Overexposed?

Prince Charles Calls Prince William & Kate Middleton Overexposed

According to reports, Prince William and Kate Middleton’s marriage is overshadowing other members of the royal family, including that of Prince Charles!

The newly married royal couple received a lot of press attention for their visits to Canada and Los Angeles recently. Celebrities were lined up to meet them, including the likes of Nicole Kidman, Tom Hanks and Jennifer Lopez. We’ve even heard that J-Lo was so anxious to meet Will and Kate that she pushed Mary Louise Parker out of the way.

Still, Prince Charles was said to be unsupportive of the idea of Will and Kate heading to the States. He was said to have commented that he was happy that his son and daughter-in-law received the same happy welcome that he and Princess Diana received during their visit in 1983. In addition to that, however, was his comment about his more recent trip with his wife, Camilla.

A source said, “Charles felt overshadowed by Diana and now it seems he feels overshadowed by their son. Some people may think he is jealous. I have always felt that as soon as William got married, Charles would feel sidelined.”

He added, “From that moment people would be less interested in what he has to say on issues such as the environment and architecture if, on the same day, Kate is wearing a new dress.”

Would Prince Charles be so petty to be jealous of the attention that Will and Kate are receiving? What do you think?

    SOUNDS LIKE CHARLES STILL NEEDS ATTENTION.  MARRYING CAMILLA WAS A CHOICE THAT HE MADE, BUT THE USA DOES NOT THINK HIGHLY OF HIS SECOND WIFE.  WE LOVED DIANA.  AND NOW WILLIAM, WHO LOOKS SO MUCH LIKE DIANA, IS TAKING THE HEADLINES FOR WE LIKE HIM AND WE LOVE WILLIAM AND CATHERINE TOGETHER.  THEY ARE A WONDERFUL TEAM.

    I, LIKE OTHERS, FEEL CAMILLA HAD A LOT TO DO WITH THE BREAKUP OF  CHARLES AND DIANA.  THAT IS NOT EASY TO FORGET FOR SHE WAS THE PRINCESS OF THE PEOPLE AND NOW WILLIAM IS THE PRINCE OF THE PEOPLE.

    CHARLES NEEDS TO GROW UP AND LET THE YOUNGER ONES ACCEPT THE RESPECT OF THE PEOPLE.  CHARLES SHOULD BE PROUD.

    We love a love story. We fell in love with the idea of Charles and Diana, because it seemed to possess the makings of a real love story. When the truth was exposed, our loyalties lay with Diana, who had been wronged and deceived. Now that we have fallen for William and Kate, Prince Charles is feeling left out. If he were truly happy with himself, he would not be making these types of comments.

    Dunderhead, IS jealous!  The Prince of Wails is at it again.  The best PR firm in the world and all of his money will not make people like him or his horse faced wife.

    What a shame that Prince Charles is so selfish that not only could he not appreciate the love and devotion the world had for Diana enough to love and devote himself to her; but, he is now jealous of his own first born?  William has all the grace and beauty of his mother, and he has chosen a beautiful young woman as his bride – a woman whose style and grace cannot help but dwarf the choices you made.  Kate is a woman with genuine beauty, devotion to your son and to your country.  It is nothing but natural that both Charles and Camilla be shown once again as the high-handed, selfish, out-of-touch snobs they are.  It was only a matter of time.  I understand perfectly why Camilla hesitated outside the church before the wedding.  She must have been watching for lightening on that bright sunny day.

    If Prince Charles were really committed to the causes he advocates, he would not care whether he gets on the front pages of the papers or on the TV news broadcasts.  The bottom line here is that he appears to be upset because he has, once again, lost the limelight to someone else, and it seems that he is never going to be able to accept the fact that he will never be as popular as he was before he married Diana Spencer.  I hope he and his cohorts in the Palace will not be small-minded enough to blame William and Catherine for their popularity with the media and the crowds.  These two young people can’t help it if they are gracious, good-looking, well-mannered, and above all, clearly in love with each other.  Whether Charles likes it or not, people will always remember what he and Camilla Parker-Bowles did to Diana and the unhappiness that she and her sons clearly suffered in the years prior to the Wales’ divorce.  If the reports are true and he is jealous of his son and his daughter-in-law’s popularity, then such a small-minded, insecure man has no place on the British throne and no right to wear the Crown of the United Kingdom.

    Charles is not very popular and I can imagine he is an unpleasant position. However he must realise that he will never be able to beat W&K’s popularity, who work closely together as a strong team. In his own interest Charles can therefore better team up with them instead of being jealous.

    These kind of reports are so ridiculous

    Poor old Charles. He wants to be the star and it seems that there is always someone else in his family outshining him. It may be too late for him to become gracious….sad when people are jealous of their children, especially when their children are simply doing the job well!

    Charles has always acted like he was above others. William and Kate seem to enjoy being down to earth and not snobby. We will not forget how Charles treated Diana. He did not marry her because he loved her but William and Kate have a true love for each other. Get over yourself, Charles. William and Kate are the real deal and you were fake.

    I think that Prince Charles & his wife should be happy for the young couple. The Palace needs a breathe of “Fresh” air . Charles & Camilla should stop being so
    selfish. Charles had his chance when he was married to Diana. He Blew it Big
    Time. He is going to pay the price for the rest of his life; Camilla too. He needs
    to get ” OVER IT” move on.

      I agree-Prince Charles blew his chance long ago to be the young, glamorous prince, who loves his country AND his wife. He needs to get over it and be proud of his son and new daughter-in-law for the gracious and loyal people they are.

    Yes I do think he feels overshadowed…first of all..not to sound vain or narcissistic if that’s the right english word here…but Prince William is a handsome, intelligent, kind, and patient young Prince, he obviously got all those traits from his mother, not from his father, because his father is quite homely if I may say so… Plus, If I may speak for most people, we do not appreciate prince charles at all,  with all his treatment of Prince William, and Prince Harry’s late Mother Lady Diana..(RIP Princess Diana)…his treatment of her was a shame..from what it appeared to us all…which the way it all turned out proved to be the truth.  Why in the world would prince Charles marry Princess Diana when all the time he wanted to be with this other *woman*, whom to us is no one…she will never replace Princess Diana, NEVER…it shows what kind of character Prince William has to be able to have her granddaughter in his wedding, and to even invite her to his wedding..He is a stronger person than I, in this situation.  Back to *Feeling Overshadowed*…I totally agree that he does feel overshadowed, cause he is a selfish man, from what we see, he sure is.   He was overshadowed by Princess Diana, and now by their son, because they have hearts of gold.  They don’t hold their title up in the air to show it off like he does.  I know that Prince William and Katherine are going to make an awesome King and Queen, if that is the way it turns, out cause one never knows.  Then that will be the end of Prince Charles and that woman forever, and we wouldn’t have to tolerate them anymore.  Just sayin .  Thank you for reading my post…I just had so much respect for the late Princess Diana, for all her work with everyone, in every walk of life.  It didn’t matter who they were she hugged them…I cant even picture prince charles shaking their hand let alone, say hugging someone with aids.  She did, and this is why we all still love her and will forever.  Now her equally amazing son is taking over where she left off.  I think Katherine wearing Diana’s wedding ring, is a beautiful sentiment to Diana. I think that will be the charm that holds their little family together.  He is so much like his mother, Thank God…

    K, sorry I started ranting and raving about them again…I could write a book I tell ya, I’d just need more facts.  Thank you again…Love you William and Katherine :)

      Dear Ndmatchett
      I could not have said it any better than you just did. I agree with every word you said !!!

    Charles and Camilla are about as appealing as the hunchback of Notre Dame.  Unfortunately for Camilla she is as ugly on the inside as she is on the outside. What a schemer. I pity them and pray for  blessings on William and Kate.

    Prinnce Charles is a moron. He couldn’t treat Diana with any respect. He is a self centered twit. Can’t stand him. Get lost Charlie! William for King!
