I love the video of Prince Charles doing the weather report. His sense of humor definitely showed . He does indeed have a nice voice, and would have made a wonderful broadcaster/news reporter.

They both did a great job with forecast, but I was particularly impressed with Prince Charles. He was so natural and I loved his little improv.

They both looked like they were having fun and I really enjoyed seeing this side of them.

Such a panache weatherman! Charles really does have a voice made for the media and I loved his improvisations and gestures. Who would have thought he could make a weather report sound so interesting; he can deliver mine any day of the week. Camilla did well also; she has a lovely voice and stuck straight to the script.

Great videos from Scotland. Thank you everyone.

The Prince looks really relaxed and enjoying himself. Even his sense of humour comes across well - not that easy reading a weather report.

I loved it as well and even enjoyed Camilla although she wasn't as polished. I love it when they do things like this and I love how the script included references to royal properties in Scotland.

What an amusing video, if being King does not appeal to Charles, being a Weatherman is definitely something he should consider!

he was fantastic! Camilla was a little less good, she probaby doesn't like public speaking too much - it was very cute when Charles told her 'you don't have to, I promise you'

I agree with you 100%. I added the video to my 'Favorites' on YouTube, and it'll be my go-to clip when I'm in a need of a laugh.

That was a very sweet gesture. It's lovely that Charles is aware of his wife's feelings regarding something like this, and that he's willing to take those feelings into account to make sure she's not uncomfortable.

Oh, the best point of the video by far .

Prince Charles's reputation is being debated in the Canadian press - every royal heir seems to face some public skepticism

Green-fingered Duchess of Cornwall isn't afraid to get her hands dirty as she gets stuck in with gardening duties on city farm
Quote:
The Duchess of Cornwall took to the streets yesterday for a spot of ‘urban gardening’. Despite wearing her priceless diamond engagement ring from Prince Charles, Camilla declined to use any gloves as she potted up plants and herbs at four small community sites across East London. A keen gardener herself, she volunteered her services as part of the first Chelsea Fringe Festival, inspired by last week’s world-famous Royal Horticultural Society flower show.

I just love the butterfly dress ensemble; really elegant, summery and beautiful.

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall received the Dalai Lama at Clarence House on June 20, 2012.
The exiled Buddhist Tibetan leader is taking part in a week long tour of the United Kingdom.


The pics of Charles and the Dalai Lama joking together are fantastic, on some of the pics Camilla looks a bit excluded
from that

I don't think it's exclusion. For sure the Dalai Lama seemed to feel more at ease physically with Charles - perhaps because Charles was being more receptive. In the video the Dalai Lama is including Camilla but she does not seem receptive - quite. Interesting to watch. Funny moment when he takes her hand when they are on the couch - she seems surprised - totally clueless as to what is taking place between Charles and the Dalai Lama to her right.

It may be because Charles and the Dalai Lama have known each other for a number of years and, as the latter said, have been close friends ever since.
Camilla is unlikely to have the same warm relationship with him, at least not just yet.
