Facebook London, Nov 11 (ANI): Many Internet users have reportedly targeted Queen’s new Facebook page to post abusive messages about the Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla Parker-Bowles.

The Queen’s Facebook page - The British Monarchy - has attracted nearly 200,000 visitors since it launched.

Royalists and republicans alike have logged on to the social networking site to view images, videos and news about the British monarchy.

But moderators were forced to remove many abusive comments by anti-monarchist saboteurs who clicked the ‘like’ button in order to post anti-Royal messages.

In particular a number of offensive messages have been posted about Parker-Bowles with a number comparing her unfavourably with Princess Diana.

“Why she has album and Princess Diana doesnt(sic)? Monarchy out to be ASHAME for this!!!(sic),” the Daily Mail quoted Nadia Cecconi Sosa in one post as writing.

Another wrote to mock the Duchess’ dress sense.

“Is this the maid dressing up for a Christmas staff party?’ he wrote beneath an image of the Duchess meeting members of the RAF.”

Their views were outweighed by positive messages, however, with hundreds of supportive comments filling the site withing hours of it’s launch.

One user defended the Duchess of Cornwall saying, “Glad that Charles has found happiness with Camilla - let’s accept that they were meant for each other and draw a veil over the past.”

The page provides more than 191,700 users with information about royal events, visits and ceremonies, all searchable on a UK map. (ANI)
