Like on every event Camilla looks stunning and very relaxed. She has dealed with her position. The whole family seems to be very comfortable there. I had read somewhere the Queen and Camilla made a walk around together and got flowers then? I didn`t saw any picture. But I´m thrilled what she wears at the opera in the evening.

Is that the first time Charles and Camilla have been photographed with the queen at an official function?

I was outside the parliment building this afternoon in the (occasional)snow and they all looked happy to be there (quite a few protestors were very prominant in the small crowd with the usual groups of socialists, anti-iraq, gm foods and the like making too much noise), thou it wasn't a very well planned visit as they forgot to remove the plastic cover off the red carpet for part of the proccessions. this evening camilla's jewellry really caught the light when photograghed, but alas i was too far away to have a good look to see what she was wearing.

Great job, Camilla! It's so cool she got a regiment. I am a little disappointed she is not the Colonel in Chief but there's plenty of time ahead for that!
I love the pictures of the faily together. They are great.

She is the Colonel in Chief of the 4th Battalion of Rifles.

It is just the way it is worded in the article. :)

Charles' knockout college visit

The Prince of Wales was described as having "a good right hand" after throwing a fake punch at a drama teacher while on a visit to Cardiff.
