Carla Bruni is certainly not a striking lady for such a commemorative event. I adore the Duchess of Cornwall's black outfit, complete with poppies and black hat. Carla, with boots and half a copy of her state visit to Britain earlier in the year, it seems whether she has no clothes for such occasions. The trouser suit, worn on the night before the commorations, for the private dinner was a complete disaster. It looks like a smoking for men.

I think we can conclude from this that the new presidents staff ain't that good at planning. lol

This, as you might expect from The Daily Mail -

As Prince Charles enters his sixth decade, it seems the heir to the throne has for years been mimicking the dress sense and style of his wife Camilla - and vice versa.
A dogged public campaigner, Prince Charles is regularly photographed arm-in-arm with Camilla around the globe, from a market in London to a village in Pakistan

It appears none of their reporters wanted to put his/her name to it!

I am glad to see them both so happy. they do look very comfortable with each other in a way Charles and Diana never really did.we can see that he and Camilla are so happy and should have been together from the beginning. now ...Charles has the right lady beside him...
God bless them both. May they live happily ever after

I am surprised at this report from the Telegraph, have they had a change of editor? It has been publicised that the German chancellor was not there due to an engagement elsewhere, perhaps the Welsh should complain that Charles was in France. It was unfortunate if they were late, but it is not going to matter too much to the men they were there to honour, something that seems to be forgotten by so many. Who have they 'let down'?

Isnīt anyone else amused by all the stories about the surprise party Camilla is giving her husband? Surprise, does she think he canīt read. Surprise party is on nearly every newspaper you care to look at and also Point de Vue. Do you think he will walk in and make a surprised face? "Darling, I never expected such a surprise!"

it was such a nice ocassion to see both couples and the two consorts interacting together. i think carla looked great, but it's maybe a very subjective opinion.

I feel they have let down everyone who was there attending the service just for starters. The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. If you're not there for 11 o'clock, why bother to turn up at all, you've missed the important moment..

There must have been a reason for it. Can't just be Camilla slapping on the war paint!

November 3

The Prince and the Duchess of Cornwall spent an hour talking to the soldiers and presenting them with their medals before joining them at a reception

Thank you for the articles milla Ca, our soldiers are incredibly brave, but I might be a little biased!

It's so horrible about the guy who lost both legs, though.

Yes, but this is not the Prince's fault. He at least tries to give them an open proof that they are brave men, that there is a sense in their lost, that for him as the symbol of his country their suffering is not meaningless. it might be "just a medal" but there's a spiritual sense in it and I believe the prince hopes that those rewarded can feel it in the hard times they are going to live through.

The BBC video of the young man who lost both legs and an arm made me cry. All he wants is to stand on his own and to get back to work.
These young people who join the service don't do it for something to do. They have real partriotism for their countries and they deserve our support.
I think the POW is doing a service by highlighting what these young people are going thru.
