Camila quintuples his charitable work

THE AVANT-GARDE - 14/09/2005
LONDON | AGENCIES

Camila Parker-Bowles, duchess of Cornwall, has extended his charitable work on having accepted the presidency of five organizations, as announced yesterday Clarense House, official residence of his husband, the prince Carlos de Inglaterra. Between these organizations they appear the Society of Podología and Pedicura, the Consortium for the Care of the Animals and the Band of Chamber of London.

" The duchess is been charmed with of taking charge of these new responsibilities ", the said source declared, on having specified that Camila presides now at a whole of nine organizations.

The wife of the Prince of Wales has promised to collaborate with the Consortium of Care of the Animals because, according to the spokesman, " it has several dogs and is a great lover of the animals ", especially of the horses. Camila is happened as the president of the consortium to the popular queen by mother, grandmother of the Prince of Wales, who died in March, 2002 to the age of 101 years.

The duchess of Cornwall, who was already supporting a narrow relation with organizations as the National Society of Osteoporosis of the United Kingdom, has increased notably his charitable commitments since he married.

How much money will this condolence trip cost, and who will pay for it?

It would be better to make a significant contribution to relief and assistance for the survivors.

imho money for the the royal family is better spent than on so many other programs.so much money is wasted in government. we actually get something concrete from royal families.

i live in washington dc and in light of the hurricane a major newspaper studied how my city would handle a situation similar to the hurricane.

Despite 2 BILLION US Dollars being spent in the last 4 years on preparing us for natural disasters and terrorist attacks the paper found that we would probably wouldnt be much better of than New Orleans if disaster were to strike.

charles and camilla's trip will cost far less than 2 billion dollars.

i'm sure the hurricane survivors and relief workers will be thrilled to meet them and personally I think it is extremely sweet of Charles and Camilla to want to go show their sympathy. it's not their country, they're not obligated to. i'm sure the rest of their trip will be a lot of fancy dinners. their visit to new orleans will hardly be fancy.

The money could be given to the Red Cross, Salvation Army, or even the Southern Baptist Convention (which I hear is doing wonderful work on the Miss. coast). (FYI, I'm not even a Baptist.) They could even make a donation to a pet rescue group, since Camilla is patron of an animal group.

Weren't the Australians just complaining about how much money they had to spend on the Prince of Wales and the Crown Princess of Denmark?

While the intentions are good...I think they should just make a donation to the American Red Cross. While the attention wil most likely cause a spike in donations, the logistics, the cost of security, etc. might offset any gains.

The bigger chunk was spent on the Fred & Mary. The funny thing was at every stop, the locals were tripping over each other to impress the visitors. They only complained of the tab as an after thought, no doubt to make an impression as conciensious politicans.:p

i understand what you're saying and you make a good argument.

i truly feel, however, that C and C making the visit will have a more beneficial effect than their simply donating the money.

These two important people taking time to visit people and see the devastation with their own eyes will encourage the victims by showing them that the international community cares for their plight.

Ofcourse money is vital to relief work and rebuilding, (and its wonderful to see that so many people are being so generous)

Ultimately it is spirit and courage that gets people through difficult times like these. and I think Charles and Camilla visiting would help give that to the people of New Orleans.

i think we have very different perspectives. both valid. but not really reconcilable.

I belong to some groups which have been asked to make quilts and provide bed linens and underwear for the survivors. These are people who don't have anything left.

Honestly, I think survivors would prefer blankets and underwear to a pat on the back from Prince Charles.

Maybe the Prince could turn Mr. Fawcett's talents toward raising some money for hurricane relief. :)

But in a few months they might want a paycheck more and Charles and Camilla can give a small boost to the economy and an pat on the back at the same time. (If the infostructure is up by the time they visit)

Actually, many countries have shown us great kindness. The Mexican Army sent troops to Biloxi, Miss., and they were joined there by the Dutch Navy. Jamaica is sending 30 of its military engineers. Even countries ravaged by the tsunami have sent food and other assistance.

What is needed is volunteerism, money and supplies.

Well, but Iowabelle, having Charles and Camilla go there doesn't preclude the victims getting aid, though. It isn't a case of one or the other but not both. And a visit from an internationally known person can help increase donations like it did in Indonesia after the tsunami.

I have to question how much attention this visit will get. I bet more people would be interested in Jennifer Lopez or the Beckhams going to New Orleans (I know, heresy on this board).

I think I've said everything I can say on this topic... and to prove I'm not hateful to Charles or Camilla, I will say that in his interview Prince Harry said lovely things about Camilla, so something must be going right in their family IMO.

I do hope so; they could probably do with a quiet life for a while!
