I know I'm a little late but I do like the new Vogue piccies. I think that Her Royal Highness looks stunning and yes it's a shame that she's been photo shopped but who hasn't been?

Even Queen Mary was photoshopped. Back in the days before Photo Shop of course. And what about Elizabeth I? Her portraits were always flattering.

And don't forget the Queen Mother in Cecil Beaton's photos of the 30s. The Queen Mum later joked about it.

The vogue pictures were absolutely beautiful, whether they were photoshopped or not.

I like the photo of the Duchess on the garden bench the best. She looked relaxed and it seems to be the least amount of touchups on that shot.

My guess is they were touched up. But most photos in any magazine are, especially fashion magazine.

IMO she looks great either way.

Take a look at just about any close-up photograph of Queen Alexandra; it's quite rare to find one that hasn't been airbrushed.

To airbrush a photo is quite different from taking 30 lbs of someone.

Taking 30 lbs off someone is exactly what Cecil Beaton did to the Queen Mother's portraits in the 30s.

Queen Alexandra was quite thin up until her final days so she didn't need the pounds taken off. She was very self-conscious of her looks so once she reached a certain age, her complexion was 'smoothed' in the photographers lab.

The royals were more remote back then so the photographers had greater license to 'fix' things but the present Testino pics don't look that far off from the way Camilla looks in candid shots during her events.

Did I miss an announcement that says they airbrushed 30 lbs (over 2st of weight) off of these pictures?

Compare the very slim Camilla in the photos with the ones from India very recently. I find it very sad that for a couple that promotes holistic and organic living find it necessary to slim down the Duchess for the photos. In other words - she is not ok the way she looks. I doubt Camilla has been as slim as she is depicted in the photos since her 30ish.

Although I find the photo of HRH the Duchess of Cornwall on the garden bench very flattering, I am inclined to agree with you grevinnan :)

The pictures of the Duchess (sitting down) seem's to portray her as a slimmer build than in the photo's taken on the Eastern tour.

There's no doubt in my mind that a certain amount of touching up has been executed on these photographs, and given the world wide circulation of the material I guess thats to be a common but somewhat unfortunate procedure...

Do you have any idea what an extra 2 Stone looks like?

That is like saying she was a US size 10 and is now a US size 18. (UK sizes 12 to a 20).

There is no way that Camilla is now a size 20! :)
