And it's so wonderful to see them happy with each other! That makes such a difference in their lives and in their working together as a team. And you really feel that they are a team!

Great pictures. They seem to be doing a lovely job together, and they also seem very happy. As has been commented previously, I think Camilla looks very regal, in her wedding outfit very tastefully recycled.

While Charles and Camilla do a lot of appearances on their own it is great to see that they are seen as Skydragon noted, to "support our troops, past & present.... ". I love that they do this together and I think that whilst Prince Charles has been "doing the pretty" with the troops all his life, Camilla at his side brings out his humour and compassion for all of us to see.

I think having been an "Army Wife" gives her the ability to empathise with both the troops and their families which. She seems to act as a sort of bridge between the formal (ceremonial) and the personal interaction. A great double act!

Couldn't agree more, MARG. Odd as this may sound, Camilla's experience as a former army wife must certainly help her understand how a lot of the families of the troops feel, even though I doubt Andrew PB ever saw action. Charles and Camilla are now a great double act, and hopefully in time, will do the top job with as much grace and elegance and they fulfill their current duties.

Indeed! Which shows them that Camilla is one of them. She relates. That's terribly important to us commonfolk. . .

I am told that Camilla is very popular amongst all service personnel, for the extra effort she puts in for them all.

I think most military members and families can spot a fake "photo op" at 90 paces, which is why I think you are right. Camilla seems to really get into the action so to speak and is obviously really at ease talking to military personnel and dependents regardless of rank.

Prince pays tribute to late friend
October 3

Charles, attending with Camilla, recalled Capt Ward, who served with the Household Cavalry, giving him a 16ft fishing rod 40 years ago. "Gerald always used to refer to it as 'the giant vibrator'," added the Prince, to laughter.

I'm sure he will be missed.

Of course he will be missed. First of all by his wife who IIRC is a painter. As I know from a lot of artist friends in happy marriages, they are "grounded" by their non-artist spouse. If this was the case with Mrs. Ward as well, she faces an especially hard time now. I wish one had a possibility to convey condolescences to her but so far best wishes on such a forum must be enough.

Charles and Camilla have lost the rarest of rarest things for them: a true friend. In their position a friend is dearer than anything else, I assume.

So it surely was a sad, sad day for them and Mr. Ward's family.

Yes, Amanda is a well known artist and the couple were devoted to one another, as is often the case in second marriages. Everyone seems of the opinion it is exactly the unlingering, sudden and unfussy way he would have wished to go. I am sure Amanda, Sarah and Lucy will somehow know of the good wishes from members of the forum.

Oh, Skydragon, that is exactly what I feared would happen. Of course for Mr. Ward this was a good way to go but he was still rather young, so many years to go for the couple. For him, I guess, yes, this was the most "pleasant" death imaginable if there is soemthing like that at all but does this thought help his nearest and dearest now when grief is still so raw and fresh? Later, yes, but at the moment I imagine that the feeling of not having been able to say good-bye is so hurtful, so difficult to come to terms with, so having to be the center of attention in such a high-profile funeral must have been very hard on Mrs. Ward and her (step-)daughters. I've included them in my prayers because from my own experiences I think I can connect to them and I wish they would have been spared such a rather public ordeal, though of course it was an honour for the late Mr. Ward and thus very fitting.
