El portal trasandino “La Tercera”, aprovechó los festejos del argentino por su celebración y junto a una nota publicó un polémico mensaje que generó revuelo. “Por fin levantó una copa en Argentina: la del brindis”
This is a modern union, untroubled by superstition: last night, bride and groom posed for pictures together outside Spencer House in St James, where the couple held a pre-wedding party. Guests were a cross-section of Rothschild’s London old moneyed set and the international jetsetters associated with the Hilton crowd. Naomi Campbell was there, as was billionaire property developer Nick Candy and his wife Holly Valance, and Petra Ecclestone and her husband. Isaac Ferry wore the dishevelled uniform of the modern Sloane (a bright pink suit and scruffy white Converses). Chelsea Clinton and husband Marc Mevinsky attended — Chelsea in black — while Sabrina Guinness (James’s aunt) and her husband, playwright Sir Tom Stoppard, also celebrated with the couple. Prince William’s best friend old Harrovian Thomas van Straubenzee — who was this week announced as one of Princess Charlotte’s godparents — attended, as did Euro-royals Crown Prince Pavlos of Greece and Denmark and his wife Marie-Chantal. Ben Goldsmith was there with his new wife Jemima.
The guest list was starry but the party small: it was held in the Great Room at Spencer House. Nicky’s brother Barron Instagrammed a picture of the ornate chandeliers, captioned “The night before” with a diamond ring emoji. It was a late night: At 3am Paris, who started her evening in a rooftop suite at Hotel Café Royal in Piccaddilly, Instagrammed Beatles lyrics (“All you need is love, love is all you need”).
While he was away, Camilla became engaged to Andrew Parker Bowles. At the time, Charles wrote regretfully of the end of the “blissful, peaceful and mutually happy relationship” of just six months standing that he had lost. “I suppose the feeling of emptiness will pass eventually,” he said.
But though he had lost Camilla, at the same time he could not escape her. She and Andrew Parker Bowles moved in royal circles and were regular guests at Windsor, Sandringham and Balmoral. Camilla always seemed comfortable with the continuation of her warm association with Charles, despite the divergence of their paths romantically. When her first child was born in 1974, she and Andrew asked Prince Charles to be godfather. Meanwhile, Charles was active on the social circuit, dating a string of eligible women and society beauties, including the glamorous brewing heiress Sabrina Guinness.
But his attachment to his first love remained strong. In 1979, after the death of his beloved Mountbatten, some reports have suggested that Charles felt the first real stirrings of tension between what was expected of him and what he really desired. It has been said that at this time he asked Camilla to leave her marriage to be with him, but she, ever the pragmatist, demurred, reminding him that, were that to happen he would be forced to renounce the throne.
