Charles and Camilla’s wedding is a chance to inflict some real damage
The wedding of Charles and Camilla offers plenty of opportunity for republicans to score some goals. They could deride the useless royal advisers who failed to check the venue’s viability and, more spectacularly, the legality of the marriage itself. They could expose an India rubber constitution that resists change but creates new categories such as “Princess Consort” when the need arises. They could highlight Charles’s hypocrisy, falling back on the human rights legislation that he so often rails against. They could capitalise on the unpopularity of Camilla or dwell on our first family snubbing each other’s nuptials. But republicans have had nothing to say.
