Who does the "they" refer to?

More than that, what is Daisy talking about? Big jewels and tiaras? If it's another moan about Camilla's tiara's best take it up with HM. She's the one that gave them to Camilla!

Thank you. These pictures, and particularly those with Cpl Ricky Ferguson are very moving. I recall a posting about Charles sending 153 handwritten letters to families that lost loved ones in the tsunami. His kindness and committment are truly remarkable. What is most striking is that he and Camilla seemed to have really taken their time to speak to these soldiers and their families and connect with them as individuals. Very touching.

You are most welcome, and I totally agree with you about that!


Here are today's pics without watermarks, although the gettyimages gallery itself is a bit misleading,
Charles and Camilla both attended events in Birmingham, but not together.

That really is very touching. Ah but I forgot, these two are cold and emotionless...

Love the 4th picture when they see the arrangement that depicks the wedding. I bet they got a kick out of that one. And them looking at the flapjacks was nice, wonder what they said to each other. Oh, to be a fly on the wall some days.

These bikes are no scooters or motocycles - the electric motor only works on pedalling and helps people who are not sooo sporty to ride with others, more experienced cyclists and give an easy introduction into the fun of biking. Where I live flat parts of streets are rare - the streets go up and down, but mostly up and tourists are very glad as they are not used to these streets or biking tracks if they can rent such eco bikes.

The woman in photo #6 looks very much like the great actress, Maggie Smith.

Charles and Camilla look like they're having a lot of fun and I do like her suit.

Off topic but I'm in love with Maggie Smith's son.
