I think Camilla looks great, and Charles always looks good in uniform.

This is not the place to start a heated discussion on the attributes of war.
The offending posts have been removed.

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.
Which is why I asked if PC has a trust for them to help them out. Over here, I don't know about elsewhere, but I'd hire a vet in an instant, they come already trained and highly disciplined. I think this is why the RF has so many soldiers in their ranks: THey know what is their duty to the crown.

The MOD has a programme of retraining but many rely on their 'mates' in the Regiment. The Royal British Legion seem to offer the most help, but many are left to struggle through the benefits system (and they are apparently complete b******ds). The minute injuries compensation award most of them get, is taken back by the system. Charles and Camilla visit and help where they can, (letters, bottles of whisky, visits) but apart from the Legion and Help for Heroes, there is not a specific charity for each and every regiment.

I've always thought that Harry looks far more like Charles (other than the Spencer red coloring) than William, who is a Spencer totally in looks. Harry has a strong resemblance to both Charles and QEII, the close, deep set eyes, the shape of his brows, the thin straight lipped mouth...

There was a poster on a royal message board who mentioned that William also takes after the Mountbattens. Around the same time as I read this, someone gave me a book on the Mountbattens (Prince Louis, Lord Louis, and Prince Philip); Prince William would fit right in with the latter two in terms of body type, face shape, and his grandfather's blonde hair. I also agree that he looks like the Spencers, and sometimes he resembles Prince Andrew and Peter Philips (perhaps that's the Mountbatten jaw).

Royals enjoy frosty stroll to church
December 8

The Duchess of Cornwall, wearing a Lovett-coloured coat, green boots and a grey tweed hat left Sandringham church with Prince Charles who was wearing his camel coat.

I am under the impression that Charles and Camilla go down early and have a weekend with their friends there before the Queen and Duke arrive.

Its not unusual for C&C to spend a weekend at Sandringham around this time of the year, before returning back to London to resume their work, and then they return to Sandringham again around Christmas.

Yes & then the following day (Boxing Day) Camilla (always) and Charles (usually, although not last year) return to Gloucestershire for Camilla to entertain her family before going to Birkhall to celebrate New Year/Hogmanay.

What on earth is Lovett-coloured? Black and grey or something that would refer to Sweeney Todd? I know what Alice-blue is and other odd color terms but can't say I've heard Lovett-coloured.

Good question! I have absolutely no idea. Google hasn't helped me, either. Maybe Lyle Lovett has a favourite colour that we don't know about. One of the locals will probably come on soon and post an answer showing how ignorant we are.

It's Lovat, not Lovett.

lovat - Wiktionary

Probably comes from one of the colours in the Fraser of Lovat tartan:

Kilt Medium Weight Rare Tartans

More quotes from EDP24 - Royals enjoy a frosty stroll to Sandringham church naming some of Charles and Camilla's house guests:

Among the guests at the weekend house party were the former King and Queen of Greece, King Constantine II and Queen Anne-Marie and the Conservative MP Nicholas Soames.
The Queen's first cousin Princess Alexandra was also in the church party and chatted to well-wishers in the small crowd.

Lovat is normally a sagey/grey sage/blue mix. This is a little too green - COLOURlovers :: Color / 88A69E / Lovat

I don't know, how do you describe a colour!

Thanks, Elspeth & Skydragon. I'm always learning things here.

That is a lovely colour for the Duchess.
