Madonna rates royal marriages

Prince Charles and wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, are more interesting than Madonna and husband Guy Ritchie, according to the pop superstar.

The 4 Minutes singer – who is famous for her controversial remarks and outspoken nature – cannot understand the public’s interest in her marriage to Snatch director Guy, and says the royal couple have more reason to be claiming the headlines.

She told Elle magazine: “I don’t really understand the interest in our lives. Victoria and David Beckham are much more interesting. And maybe even Camilla and Prince Charles.”

Camilla is fast becoming known for her unique sense of style, a position she is not comfortable with.

However, the duchess’ hair colourist Jo Hansford, who has been doing her hair for over 20 years, insisted: “Camilla is not a style icon, she never will be and she doesn’t want to be.”

Camilla recently sparked controversy when she decided she wanted to spend more time on her yacht during her official Caribbean tour with Charles, meaning she missed out on over a quarter of the couple’s official engagements.

Camilla’s decision angered British taxpayers’ as they are paying for the 11-day royal trip, which includes the hire of the yacht, usually costing UKP320,000-a-week.
