I've just heard a newsflash on BBC Radio4 that Prince Charles is to marry Mrs Camilla Parker Bowles and that a statement is expected from Clarence House shortly.
What do I think about this? Doesn't concern me in the slightest - perhaps we might be able to take this non-news off the headlines for good. Once the partnership rules for same-sex couples take effect, life will be even better.
UPDATE: (Thursday 10FEB05 10.10 GMT) Here is a BBC link for this story. The speculated date of the marriage (6 April) sounds as if this could be to coincide with the start of a new tax year - frankly this anodyne aspect of the announcement is, for me, the only point of mild interest about it.
