Those must be my favorite pictures of them ever! I'd love to know what was so funny, though I'm sure I never will.

Thank You for the pictures everyone. Once you start with the giggles, it is hard to stop!

As any woman knows, a gale-force wind presents a challenge when you are wearing dress. And, as the Prince of Wales discovered, a sudden gust can also wreak havoc if you are sporting a kilt.

Finally a little of laughter! As the stiff upper-lip is a true way of living, those moments captured in picture are priceless. If only it could be more often.

Those pictures are wonderful! The Duchess seems like such a naturally happy person, and she really brings out the best in Prince Charles. I love seeing royals have laughing fits -- I wish they'd do it more often!

They are obviously very happy together. They also had a laugh attack when visiting Milton. I'm glad they are ignoring the 'haters'and getting on with life. Life is too short and precious to take SO seriously. I can see what he sees in her. She's his best friend.

Thanks a lot for posting those great links, milla and LadyFinn,
the pics are really brilliant, especially when looking at Charles'
reactions to Camilla's fit of laughter. Where's the British picture
of the month team? These pics need to be added to their list

Game for a laugh...it´s the Prince of Gales
August 10

(...) And as the wind gathered strength, Charles appeared to become increasingly concerned about whether his kilt might blow up.
The Duchess couldn’t contain her mirth as her husband used a hand to keep the kilt firmly pressed against his knees

Game for a laugh... it's the Prince of Gales | Mail Online
________________
So nice to see them so happy together again and also so nice that you can´t bear not to laugh when watching the pics...

The statement of the Mail that ´Charles presence at the Mey games emphasised his absence in Beijing ´can only be a joke, i think. But there couldn´t be an article in this tabloid about the royal couple without saying something negative...

Wow what a laugh ! It's soooo good to see them like this. I agree with the comments above: it's maybe their best pics together so far

These games are always such a hoot. Wasn't an incident a couple of years ago with a gentleman who accidentally exposed his buttocks to the royals?

I missed neither the weather nor the giggles that turned into a fit of laughter, I am still drying out my clothing and shoes!

cotland's traditional dress reduced Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall to fits of laughter on Saturday when the heir to the throne discovered the perils of wearing a kilt during a gale.

It was not a gale, a gale in Scotland is when you can't keep your feet!

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall have brought to a close a series of engagements in Scotland with a visit to a church.

I have enjoyed these pics of the couple in Scotland. I just loved the 'gale' pics, and the shots of them after the church service made me smile, too. They made me smile because they both look so comfortable and happy, and so do the people around them.

As an aside, I notice that Camilla is not wearing a hat. I can't imagine a Royal lady going to a C of E service without headgear of some sort; is the C of S less formal in this regard?
