CAMILLA, Duchess of Cornwall, broke her leg while hill-walking last week, which can't have been very pleasant. But such mishaps can occur to ladies of a certain age, when the bones become somewhat more brittle. She took it in the stoical style expected of a military caste -- which is what an aristocracy originally was.

But perhaps of more concern to Duchess Camilla is the suggestion currently being made that her marriage to Prince Charles falls short of constitutional legality.

The pair were married at Windsor five years ago in a civil ceremony and endorsed with a religious blessing. But doubts have continuously been expressed as to whether the marriage was constitutionally legal.
