I’ve just realised exactly why this obstreperates me

It’s one of the many things that people mock about Charles, the Prince of Wales. Don’t get me wrong, like all royals there are loads of things that are eminently ridiculous about him and his pursuits. I find the whole concept of royalty offensively ridiculous. But what I don’t find ridiculous about him is the fact that he chose to marry Camilla Parker-Bowles, yet he is constantly mocked for it because she is unapologetically middle-aged, and thus not considered beautiful enough to be a royal wife.
