They do have one of the best photographers Skydragon,dutch btw,the brits haven't come up with one to beat him,thank you.

As I said before,the captions are sometimes lousy,as is the headlamp of dear Camilla,Duchess of Cornwall and the "more realistic images" by Getty just shows the very same,just more distant,how british.....

the 'antenna' on camilla's hat is a bit much of a good thing but otherwise i love her outfit! the flowing skirt is so feminine and the colors are just right for the occassion.

They are really irksome! They look as though they would just snap off if I could get my hands on them. HRH really could do without them. Other than that, I loved her look.

I liked the first hat she has on in the Getty photos. The second one closer to the bottom looks nice but it looks frustrating. This is because it looks as she had to hold it on her head the whole time, like if she let go, she would lose it. That took away from the look of it. JMO

Other than that they both looked lgreat.

No,the prince and the duchess have 106 staff in total,30 of them are private staff, including bulters, velets and dresser,cooks,maids,etc. The rest are people working for his duties to support the Queen, his charities, Camilla's charties, and his future ideas and developments. They are different levels of secetaries with different works, communication people,adminstrative people, accountants and financial advisers etc. The prince does hire many people but Sir Michael Peat still stressed that they are understaff.

I thought Charles as the heir holds the Duchy of Cornwall while the Duchy of Lancaster is held by the souverain? Doesn't the Telegraph know this?

Royal retainers

Prince Charles employs 135 full-time staff, but his senior aide, Sir Michael Peat, insisted that "this organisation is understaffed, if anything".

Royal retainers | Uk News | News | Telegraph

We can all imagine the headlines if Charles made 10 or 20 redundant. Like any business, you have staff, Charles and the Duchy is no different. I bet, unlike most businesses, most of them actually do work and not sit around gossiping.

Do we think Camilla will get attacked by the Press for the number of engagement she has carried out last year? I think they will not make too much fuss as she has done about 220 last year.

That said, if Camilla wants to increase her credibility as a hard working royal supporting her chosed causes (and to increase her acceptability as a future Queen), she will probably need to gradually increase the number of public engagements to around 400 per year. She has got to appear energetic and passionate, so has to kick off the "lazy Camilla" tag that she has rather unfortunately acquired

Maybe not always the number of engagements is so important but also the quality of every single duty! And Camilla does a wonderful job!
And also you should mention that the Duchess had a major operation in March and she had to rest afterwards for more than two month.

Camilla's chosen cause is primarily to support her husband, The Prince of Wales. As milla Ca has said, it is all very well doing 10 engagements in a day if nobody gets to spend time with her. At least she seems to have or read up on the various causes she supports and know something about the areas she is visiting!
