That's my point! I think she seem to be nice, very nice too. And she have a natural behavior and, as far I can see, she is realy acting Royal in a natural way. It's easy like that. But when we are bragging about all the fine dresses I find it greatly exaggerated and perhaps it recoil back to something else.

Personally I do admire Camillas behavior and her kindly, nice look.

I was just admiring her frock - not claiming she was the second coming.

I love the dress. Wish we could see more of it. Are there any pics of Camilla with the coat off?

Lovely photos, her entire outfit is stunning and they all appear to have had a jolly good time!

They looked like they were having a good laugh with Charles. I wonder what the joke was?

I wish Camilla would ditch the clutchbags. They appear to get in her way - she should go for a more robust handbag like the Queen sports.

Good Grief! She will never hear the end of it from all sorts of critics. Can't you just imagine the headlines claiming Camilla imitates the Queen or Camilla pratices to be the next Queen.

LOL. Very possible. Lady Bracknell shrieks of 'A Handbag!' would fill the streets of London.

It would be nice if the royals ditched the handbags altogether. I mean, what do they have to carry???

When the Queen's handbag came open at an event at Westminster Abbey, her glasses, powder compact, lipstick, handkerchief and mints flew out across the shiny floor. All the bishops etc scrambled to get the make-up items when the Dean of Windsor picked up her glasses and handed them to her. "See - Bishops do have some uses" HM declared.

I imagine that thats what the other royal ladies carry too - so they do need them. And it gives them something to do with their hands I suppose.

LOL BeatrixFan! I love the image of all these bishops in their mitres crawling the floor for lipstick and a powder compact.

I find purses a nuisance and put stuff in my pockets if I can instead. Surely HM has a lady in waiting.

Well she does, but the Ladies-in-Waiting are on flower duty. They hold all the posies etc and they are gradually passed down the line to police officers and footmen and then the Queen sends them to a local hospice or hospital. I think it would be strange for a 79 year old lady to ask a Lady in Waiting for her lipstick but they do dress her so...

Eric Clapton is very hands-on with the Prince of Wales:

Well a Lady-in-Waiting is a Royal version of a Ladies Maid. A few titled ladies still have them - the Duchess's of Devonshire and Countess Spencer for definate.

I can't quite see the royals walking along with their pockets stuffed with anything, it would ruin the line of their outfits.:)
