Track: It was the moment the British press...if few others...have been waiting months to see...and the Greeks got it first. Prince Charles and his long-time companion Camilla Parker-Bowles ended their summer holiday together in public.

(Pix of yacht)


Track: The couple...along with the Prince's sons William and Harry...had spent the last ten days aboard a luxury yacht owned by a Greek tycoon. A veritable army of paparazzi had been unable to track them down.
The public display was seen by Royal watchers as another step in the process of formalizing the couple's relationship. It was in sharp contrast to the start of the holiday...when Charles and Camilla arrived on different days. The timing seems to be about right.

SOT (MOS): "I think they should just get on with their own life. It's

nobody else's concern."

SOT (MOS): "I couldn't quite see her as the next Queen of England, but

for going on holidays together, yeah, that's fine."

(Yacht at sea)


vo: And just to add spice to it all the public display of togetherness came a day after reports that Prince Charles had been threatened by harpoon-wielding protestors. That incident occurred while the Prince was swimming away from the luxury yacht near Cyprus. A royal bodyguard intervened when the Prince set off a security alarm he always carries.

(Tabloids/Charles etc)


Track: The incident provided the Royals-obsessed British tabloid Press with lurid headlines...but a spokesmen for the Royal family played down the dangers. As for the couple in question...they seem to have had a good holiday.
