LONDON – Prince Charles announced Thursday that he will marry his lover Camilla Parker Bowles, putting an official seal on a long romance that Princess Diana blamed for the breakdown of her tempestuous marriage to the heir to the throne. The announcement ruled out the possibility that she would become queen.

The Prince of Wales and Parker Bowles, both divorced, will marry on Friday, April 8, at Windsor Castle, said Clarence House, Charles’ residence and office.

They will be married in a largely private civil ceremony at the palace, not in a Church of England service. “There will subsequently be a service of prayer and dedication in St. George’s Chapel at which the Archbishop of Canterbury will preside,” said Clarence House. [AP]
