It seems to be the case that Philip is better at being a grandfather, than a father.
Most of us mellow as we get older

Thanks Skydragon.
This article is an excellent overview of Charles and Camilla in 2005 and their plans for 2006, and the longer term. Recommended reading.

Thank you for posting that article link Skydragon, what a wonderful article! I certainly look forward to a glorious year for the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, may they have a successful and happy year! Can't wait to find out what the destinations will be for their two overseas visits mentioned in that article, does anyone have any guesses or clues?

I think Germany might feature on the visit list considering Britain's relationship with Germany at the moment. Denmark might also feature.

And in the UK only a Princess of the blood can have the title before their name btw. Princess Diana for example was not correct and I think she herself pointed this out to people in her time.

Yes but people (and the media) called her Princess Diana all the time. Such was their affection for her. Those of us who hold affection for Camilla wish to call her Princess Camilla whether it's correct or not. On this occassion etiquette can go hang - God Bless Princess Camilla. :)

Happy New Year Jonnhy. I hope you have a brilliant year. I agree, I'd love to see the Wales's in Denmark - now that would be a grand visit. I think Camilla would get on well with Margrethe.

Yes as everyone in the UK knows. I should have just put Prince Charles and his wonderful wife Camilla, Princess of Wales!
A match made in heaven! :)

We will have to agree to disagree on that count.

The majority of people in the UK know that only a Princess of the blood is supposed to put the title before her name!:)

I'm not sure about that. No one in my immediate circle knew while I was growing up. This is just something I discovered along the way because of my interest in the RF. And you certainly could not tell by the 'Princess Diana' or 'Princess Di' signs held up by people at events in past years. But perhaps you are right.

Most people remember it because of all the press, when Charles divorced and again after the accident.

Well, let's see where they've been and where the Queen's been. She did Italy last year I think so we could cancel that. Spain's an interesting one - but at the moment we're on good terms with Spain. I said Germany because of the EU budget row - but the Queen went to Germany last year. Denmark hasn't had a visit for a long time, nor has the Netherlands. France is out because the Queen did that last year along with Russia, Norway and Poland as well as China.

So, I'd put my money on Sweden, Denmark, The Netherlands, Spain - somewhere like that. If it's a country with a Monarchy it'd be fab and it means we could be getting some foreign royalty here after Charles and Camilla have been. It's all very exciting.

Do they fly separately or is that just the heirs? My best friend is so terrified of flying she and her groom took a sleeper train from point A to B for their honeymoon. I do feel for Camilla if she is afraid to fly.
