These pics remind me of Christmas at Skeldale House, on the show All Creatures Great and Small, where Tricky- Woo, Mrs. Pumphrey's spoiled Pekingese would send the vets F&M hampers for Christmas!
You'll have to watch the show to understand....

Judging by the expression on the Queen's, Kate's and Camilla's faces, either Kate or Camilla got something really nice - and the other two didn't!

Camilla's title has been discussed in GREAT DETAIL in various British threads. It has also been explained perfectly by some members in this very thread.

For those who still wish to discuss it or don't completely understand how she is fact both The Duchess of Cornwall and The Princess of Wales (but is known formally by the Cornwall title), please feel free to visit http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...es-258-57.html .

We won't go into greater detail in this thread.

Thanks!

I'm with you. Obviously a Pekingese with great taste, you can't get better than A Fortnum and Mason hamper.



I laughed at the part where the boss of F&M mentioned to the Queen that they had put some dog biscuits in the hampers. Apparently the Queen's eyes lit up and she started digging into the hamper looking for them. Camilla and Kate apparently followed suit.

Oh my goodness ! How funny were those moments? Truly priceless, especially when Siegfried and Tristan would beg James to go and do all those visits to Mrs. Pumphrey, so they could get some goodies.

That was very funny. I bet the Corgis and Lupo were in doggy heaven later in the day .

There was a point in one of the videos when Kate was hanging so far back as they were departing that Camilla had to look around for her. I guess Kate may have been a bit overwhelmed being in HM's company and mindful of the protocol, but when she and Camilla were tasting the sweets they were very relaxed and chatting away.

You know you're in Fortnum and Mason when one of the staff mention that you should try putting one of the candied rose petals you've just tried into some champagne!

I think Kate was, understandably, a bit nervous. She was very careful to be respectful not only to the Queen, but to Camilla as well i.e making sure to walk behind her, letting Camilla stand closest to the Queen, letting Camilla get into the car first. It was nice to see.

Next week's away day in Leicester with HMQ and the DoE will be interesting! I'm sure she has butterflies in her tummy.

Maybe even some grandchildren; Beatrice or Eugenie could help out.
I'd love to see Beatrice or Eugenie accompany the Queen, that would be lovely. Shame Lady Louise is too young, she'd love a trip out with Granny! I hope Sophie attends something with the Queen, i'd love to see them interact in public considering they're meant to be very close.

Thanks for all the links to images and videos, i'd LOVE a F&M hamper for myself.

I just had a whole red velvet cupcake with vanilla latte and now I'm stuffed. I have the royal ladies to thank for that! I dunno why but I'm thoroughly enjoying watching the videos again and again more so then normal. Should be fun seeing Catherine the Queen and the DOE together next week, though I hope they do it a bit later on in the day, I wanna be around this time!

Oh, yum, a tea party sounds good right about now. I've got enough teapots to host several at one time....now for a tea hamper from F&M.

Seeing the Queen together with the Duchesses was wonderful! I am slightly confused to see that the Queen never spoke with Catherine. I saw the Queen looking quizzically at Catherine's feet in one picture, but otherwise the Queen did not look at Catherine. Camilla seemed to be in the middle speaking with the Queen or speaking with Catherine. Is this just my imagination, or has anyone else noticed?

This is a link to the picture:

More videos

This one is pretty much the same as all the other ones but I posted it cause there's no music playing over it or any commentary while the 3 royal ladies are chatting so you can actually hear what they're saying

What woman doesn't love chocolate? Heard Kate's admission she loves chocolate loud and clear! Thanks for the videos, Ghost Night!
