Letter: A big hat is not enough to rehabilitate Camilla

THE ARTICLE about Camilla Parker Bowles must be the personification of bitchiness. There is not a word to acknowledge her loyalty, discretion and reticence. Few people could have contained their hurt and anger at reports such as this one. Her love affair with Prince Charles will surely become one of the great romances of the century when the tragedy of his unhappy marriage fade.

Leading article: The Church of England needs to find its voice

THE BISHOPS of Oxford and Southwark have argued that the Prince and Camilla Parker Bowles should not be subjected to any further indignities by being pressurised into marriage. Their forgiving nature may be applauded. But the opposition of other clerics to any hint that the Church might be softening its attitude on extra-marital relations is yet another worrying sign of decline.

The rehabilitation of the 'rottweiler'

I work for ... Jo Hansford: Joanna Hansford is PA to her mother, Hair Colourist to the stars

One of the ways I have adjusted to Mum being my boss is by calling her Jo at the salon and Mum at home. Nevertheless, the hardest part of our working relationship is that I have to share her with everyone else at work. She's a kind-hearted person and a lot of juniors need her shoulder to cry on, which can leave me wondering "What about me?". The fact that I'm the boss's daughter doesn't make it difficult for my colleagues because although Mum won't take any nonsense and is quite strict that there's very little bitchiness within the salon, if anyone's got a problem they generally talk it through with everyone else. Hairdressers are all creative and outrageous nut cases, which is why they are such fun.

What's Mandy up to with Charles and Camilla?

The subjects still object to Queen Camilla

TIME to cast our minds back to last July. Photographers outside Highgrove, the private residence of Prince Charles and the venue for a party celebrating the 50th birthday of Camilla Parker Bowles, are surprised to find special facilities have been laid on. There's to be none of the usual scrummaging. "If you want to see the main shot, boys, just stay here," the helpful police inspector tells them. It was almost unheard of.
