SHARE BRITISH MEDIA TACKLE STICKY ISSUE OF TAPE

It looks as if it will be awhile before Prince Charles can live down "Camillagate."

Most British national newspapers broke their self-imposed embargo Sunday and printed the full transcript of the tape in which the heir to the throne and his married friend, Camilla Parker Bowles, express their love and lust for each other.The Sunday Mirror ran the transcript with a huge front-page headline: "Why We Publish That Tape Today: Decide For Yourself." The newspaper said 28 intimate phone calls between the prince and his pal have been recorded by "Britain's spy bosses" - and that Certain People are very anxious to stop the other 27 from getting out.

The People newspaper, in publishing the transcript, said the public has "the right to know what is going on." It pointed out that high society hushed up an affair between the last prince of Wales and a married woman - Wallis Simpson. He succeeded to the throne as Edward VIII but abdicated to marry Mrs. Simpson.
