So you hate royal weddings. Or you love them. Or maybe you've caught yourself attending to arcane details of Prince William and Kate Middleton's plans for April 29, but you can't say exactly why. Here's one reason: They defy time. Start with just the idea of monarchy. It may be a deadly serious issue in the Middle East, but as practiced in Britain of late, it all seems so quaint and bygone. Who else in the 21st century gets to walk a red carpet without an agent taking 10%? Yet a few Fridays from now in London, you can count on a Gothic church, a carriage procession from that church to Buckingham Palace, great queues of commoners and vast inventories of souvenir spoons.

Prince Charles should end his relationship with Camilla Parker-Bowles or abdicate his claim to the British throne, a senior clergyman said.

David Streeter, director of the Church Society, the senior evangelical body of the state Church of England. Princess Diana blamed Parker-Bowles, 49, for the failure of the royal marriage.

Alun Hoddinott, 78, a composer who wrote music for the British royal family and was an influential promoter of modern music in his native Wales, died Wednesday at a hospital in Swansea, Wales, his family said. They did not release the cause of death. Hoddinott composed more than 300 operas, symphonies and songs, including music for Prince Charles' 16th birthday and a fanfare for the prince's marriage to Camilla Parker Bowles in 2005. Born in the Welsh mining town of Bargoed in 1929, Hoddinott took violin lessons at age 4 and won a university scholarship at 16. He studied with Australian composer and pianist Arthur Benjamin and wrote his first major concerto in 1949 while he was still a student.

Britain's Queen Elizabeth II met the longtime lover of her son Prince Charles at a gathering Saturday in what royal watchers portrayed as a historic encounter. A Buckingham Palace spokesman said the queen and Camilla Parker-Bowles were among 100 guests at a party Charles threw to celebrate the 60th birthday of ex-King Constantine of Greece. British media said it was the first time the queen had met Parker-Bowles since she and Charles, the heir to the throne, made their public debut last year.

Princess Diana's death casts a shadow over another important relationship in Prince Charles' life--his love for Camilla Parker Bowles. Reviled as "the other woman" in the failed marriage, Parker Bowles now has the most formidable of rivals for public acceptance.

In New York, the newest member of Britain's royal family, the Duchess of Cornwall, was criticized for wearing a pink Italian wool crepe dress to ground zero, pickets denounced her as "Cam-zilla" and one headline read: "Queen Camilla is New York's Frump Tower."
