Wedding: King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla's Relationship: A Timeline

Charles and Camilla's wedding from delay to why the Queen never attended

  Charles and Camilla's wedding from delay to why the Queen never attended King Charles III and Camilla, Queen Consort, tied the knot in April 2005 in a civil ceremony held at Windsor Guildhall, followed by a religious service at St George's ChapelThe new monarch, 73, and Camilla, 75, announced their engagement in February 2005, 35 years after they first met, and went on to tie the knot two months later.

They have been driven to the verge of extinction in Britain.

But after nearly two centuries, wildcats may soon return to England.

So-called Devon Tigers could be released in the county by 2024. They are similar to a domestic tabby but are larger, stockier and with a bushy tail.

The wildcat is Britain's only remaining native cat. Its last redoubt is in the Scottish Highlands.

The Devon Wildlife Trust, which is behind the plan, has advertised for a Wildcat Officer, asking if applicants 'would like to be at the forefront of a radical species recovery programme and play a pivotal role in reversing the fortunes of Britain's rarest mammal'.

The Devon Wildcat Project is a partnership between Devon Wildlife Trust, Wildwood Trust, Derek Gow Consultancy and Forestry England. Pete Burgess, of the Devon Wildlife Trust, said an 18-month feasibility study is under way.

He added: 'The success of the project will depend on whether communities want to share the landscape with the animals.

'It's only a couple of hundred years ago they were commonplace around England. That's a blink of an eye in ecological terms'.

Mr Gow said the earliest likely reintroduction would be in 2024 or 2025.

'In this country we have killed everything,' he added. 'To re-establish an animal like this we have managed to scour from the face of this island, it will require hundreds if not thousands of reintroductions of wildcats throughout the landscape.'

King Charles salutes late queen, public workers in speech .
LONDON (AP) — King Charles III evoked memories Sunday of his late mother, Queen Elizabeth II, as he broadcast his first Christmas message as monarch in a speech that also paid tribute to the “selfless dedication” of Britain’s public service workers, many of whom are in a fight with the government over pay. Charles, 74, also empathized in the prerecorded message with people struggling to make ends meet “at a time of great anxiety and hardship.” Like some other parts of the world, the U.K. is wrestling with high inflation that has caused a cost-of-living crisis for many households.
