Does anybody have more articles on Camilla being chosen as The Most Fascinating Person of 2005 by Barbra Walters. I also have a question. Why is there such a big deal being made over Charles and Camilla attending the opening of the Narnia movie. Will she wear a tiara. Is it that type of event. I know she goes to the Opera a week after so she will wear a tiara there. I wonder what Tiaras she will choose.

In general, tiaras are considered to be unnecessary for general evening attire, unless it is a royal or state event. Even the Queen generally avoids wearing one for cultural invitations.

I always thought it was proper ettiquette for a Royal or titled person to wear thier orders and a tiara. The Earl and Countess of Wessex did when they went to the opera in Monaco. My question is, is it proper ettiquette to wear a tiara to a movie opening. Do you wear evening and ball gown type dresses. I dont remember any other royal attending grand openings.

Sophie wore her tiara in Monaco at the Opera event because it was part of the official festivities for the enthronement of Prince Albert as Sovereign, so it was a state-related event.

The Queen usually wears a nice evening gown with her diamond earrings and necklace to an evening event, but without one of her tiaras. The other royal ladies usually do the same.

In the good old days, tiaras were a must for the theatre. Orders and Decorations were seen as flashy if a Royal wasn't present. Sadly, this custom has died out along with many forms of elegance. I think it was the Savoy that used to insist on tiara's in the boxes and if a lady wasn't wearing gloves she could be refused a seat in a box.

For the US viewers, The WE channel will be having a royal saturday on December 3. They will show many shows relating to royalty. Some on Princess Di and her dresses, others on the young and sexy royals, other on how to transform us Yanks into royalty. It is topped at 8pm Eastern Time with the US debut of What Ever Love Means. I read this on an article if it is wrong please inform me.

I am really glad that the Duchess of Cornwall won the title – she deserved it! Indeed, during all these years she loved and was devoted to one person, HRH Prince Charles. I don’t know many examples when love does not waver for a bit during, what, 35 years?

Yes I think it is wonderful as well. Not even many marriages last 35 years nowadays!:)

Of course that it does But on the other hand - their affair lasted much longer than many marriages.

It is such a lovely photo and shows a united, if extended family. I was wondering if Tom and Laura would be included. :)

Charles clearly, like a lot of men (and women, Warren:) ) wanted to play the field. It is quite sad if you think about it. While he was playing around the woman of his dreams gave up on him, so that he spent a number of years trying and failing to replace her.
I bet with hindsight he could really kick himself!

I think a few kicks in Mountbatten's direction wouldn't go amiss either.

That picture is very nice for the card, but it isn't very Christmassy. Not a robin or snowflake in sight. Shouldn't be allowed.

I couldn't agree with you more about Mountbatten. he completely messed up Charles' ideas of marriage and relationships and deserves some of the blame for the divorce.

He was so arrogant, though, I'm sure if he'd live to see the divorce he'd think it was all Diana's fault.

btw, i agree about the card. a Christmas scene would have been much nicer. but i guess using the wedding photo is a good way to smooth over the issue of who should be on the card.

last year it was Charles with the boys in a sweet informal family photo.

From a PR standpoint it is impossible to have christmas card featuring Charles, Camilla and the 2 boys in some informal shot- looking like they're one big happy family as if Camilla was their mom.

this is a "transition year" for the christmas card. next year both boys will at Sandhurst and basically living their own adult lives, so they wont have to be on it anymore.

i predict the 2006 card will feature only charles and camilla.

I have a great amount of respect for Lord Mountbatten. I don't think he was arrogant. I think that Charles should end the House of Windsor which has been plagued by nothing but scandal and sadness and create the House of Mountbatten.

but the name was just changed a few decades ago! all that royal house name changing will get a bit wearisome. what if the house of mountbatten becomes scandal plagued and William changes the name again? the poor moderators will spend their every waking hour going through all the threads changing the titles

btw, isnt their last name technically windsor mountbatten? is that also technically the name of the house?
