Tampongate

When you see pictures of Charles and Camilla at official functions, you might not be able to forget the details of "Camillagate," aka "tampongate." As they carried on a romantic relationship from the 1970s and into their marriages to other people, a flirty conversation between Camilla and Charles was caught on tape and published in 1992. The tapes included an exchange in which Charles said he wanted to be Camilla's tampon:

  • Charles: "Oh god. I'll just live inside your trousers or something. It would be much easier!"
  • Camilla: (Laughs.) "What are you going to turn into, a pair of knickers?" (Both laugh). "Oh, you're going to come back as a pair of knickers."
  • Charles: "Or, God forbid, a Tampax. Just my luck!" (Laughs.)
  • Camilla: "You are a complete idiot!" (Laughs.) "Oh, what a wonderful idea!"

Needless to say, it was embarrassing for Princess Diana and the royal family, as well as Charles and Camilla.

Urgh. Poor people, no privacy at all. But then again who wants to be a tampon?
