Tell me about it! And I think age has got something to do with how funny he looks in that costume.... because I seem to have a memory of a pic of William, at the same sort of event, in the same sort of costume, a few years ago, and he did not look funny, in fact he was handsome!
But I could be wrong about seeing William in that costume, I could just be daydreaming!
I don't mean to sound morbid, but Charles is ageing worse than his mother and father. They could outlive him, at the rate he is going, I would not be surprised!

I think William has the ability (and I wish I had it too) to make almost anything he wears look good, or at least decent. I've never seen a picture of him in the uniform/attire his father is wearing though. Would be an interesting look.

Charles doesn't look his sixty-two (almost sixty-three) years. I'd give him late seventies or early eighties. Very sad, because as you said, his mother looks like she's in better shape.

I don't think I'll ever look at His Highness the same way again if he sported that head dress. Good thinking that it's unlikely that I'll be meeting him any time soon.

Mh, to me, the PoW looks like a man in his 60s, maybe even better than 10 years ago, at least happier, from what I can see on photos. While he was never outstanding, he doesn't hurt my eyes, either.

I agree - all this talk about him looking so very old is nonsense IMO. Its kind of a back-door slap. He looks fine to me - totally his age - no way near being 70 or 80.

Late seventies or early eighties?! Not at all! To me he looks better today than he did twenty years ago!

Copy that. The "Dumbo ears" have toned down with age.

As someone with a number of friends and family in their late 70s and early 80s there is no way Charles looks as old as that.

He looks what he is - early to mid 60s.

Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, attended the 250th Anniversary Dinner of
The Board of Deputies of British Jews, Guildhall, London, July 5, 2011.


** Pic 1 ** Pic 2 ** Pic 3 ** Pic 4 ** gallery ** belga gallery **



Today, July 6, the couple attended a ceremony to mark the inauguration of a memorial to the
British victims of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami at the Natural History Museum in London.

The memorial is a single granite monolith, with the design reflecting the views and feelings of
British survivors and bereaved families and is the product of months of work between them
and the design team.

I would not be surprised if HRH Prince of Wales has aged fast; he has endured alot of stress in his years.
Having said that I believe he is happier than he has been in the past and this is reflected in how often you see him, together with Camilla, laughing and smiling.
I wish him happiness and hope to see many more smiling pictures.

1st event- Love that ball gown, seems to be a fav of Camilla's.
2nd event- Pic 2 is adorable- Granny Camilla
Pic 3 is a moving one, with the memorial as the background.

I think the Duchess is yet another member of the BRF who's great with little ones. The picture is indeed very sweet.

There seems to be a lot of members in the BRF who are good with kids, good quality for a Royal to have in my book!
