Camilla and her Homewrecking Shoes

Homewrecker Camilla got married today to Prince Charles. Her new title is the Duchess of Cornwall. I must say I think that she and Charles should have married from the very beginning instead of ruining the life of Princess Diana. Now Diana, she had saintly shoes and had to put up with alot from those two.

Now I heard that part of their vows today were from the common book of prayers and it sounded like they were trying to absolve themselves of their past sins.

The Prince of Wales and Camilla Parker Bowles will admit their "manifold sins and wickedness" in the Anglican church's strongest language when their wedding is blessed by the Archbishop of Canterbury on Saturday.

The Prince will pledge to be faithful to his new wife in the service of prayer and dedication at St George's Chapel within the grounds of Windsor Castle.

Instead of the more recent and moderate prayers of penitence written for divorcees, the Prince and the new Duchess of Cornwall will then join the congregation in reading what is regarded as the most severe act of penitence from the 1662 Book of Common Prayer.

The confession reads: "We acknowledge and bewail our manifold sins and wickedness, Which we, from time to time, most grievously have committed, by thought, word and deed."

Charles and Camilla will then say: “We do earnestly repent, And are heartily sorry for these our misdoings. Have mercy upon us .... Forgive us all that is past.” Both have committed adultery during their previous marriages.

Lord Carey, the Former Archbishop of Canterbury, is expected to lighten the mood with a reading from the Book of Revelation which includes the line: "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away."

I guess they feel wonderful and free of all past guilts, but I don't think so. There sure was a lot of drama in Diana's life due to Camilla. In my eyes she will always be a homewrecker! Thank god she will not be queen. She does not deserve it.

I read that she did have on some beautiful shoes for the wedding. They were made by L. K. Bennett. Shewore pale beige suede court shoes with almond-colored toes and a 2-inch heel by design house L.K. Bennet . I checked out the L. K. Bennet website and there was just notice that the spring lines of shoes for spring and summer are in. Not any pictures. That was a disappointment. I did sign up for the newsletter hoping that pictures of shoes will soon follow. The only picture they did have was of these shoes. Kind of cute, but Oh sooo red!

While searching for dirt on Camilla, I came across a wonderful british shoe designer, Emma Hope and her shoe collection called Regalia for Feet. Needless to day she has some beauties for spring and summer! I like all of these and would not mind having a pair myself! Check out her current line here!

Spring 2000 saw the opening of her third London shop in the heart of Notting Hill. The new store incorporates all the elements that have made Emma Hope’s shops a destination for the well heeled women of London, where both the shoe and handbag collections can be found.

The handbag collection, for business, day and evening, has been designed to compliment the shoes, using the same materials and are exquisitely lined with exacting detail in kid, grosgrain or silk.

Materials in the softest nappa, richest suedes, silk velvet, embroidered brocade and grosgrain are used, ensuring the highest quality and comfort. The mainline shoe and handbag collections are produced in Florence, Tuscany, an area that is known for its beautiful hand finishing techniques.
