'Best of friends': Dalai Lama and Prince Charles hold hands, touch heads and pat each other on the back during Clarence House visit
Quote:
The Dalai Lama paid a heartfelt tribute to the Prince of Wales tonight describing him as a 'very close' friend after the two men held talks in London. The exiled Tibetan spiritual leader also urged Charles to carry on his work and in touching scenes the pair held hands, touched heads and patted each other on the back during their time together.

If you mean THIS DRESS - I totally agree. On the whole I think Camilla has figured out - or been well-advised - what she likes, what looks good on her, what is comfortable to wear in public (with no surprises) - and lastly, what photographs well.

I just love her hats!

I don't recall Charles ever going to Wimbledon before. Camilla must have wanted to attend.

I posted about this in another thread before I realized Camilla was there too.

Apparently Camilla attended lunch with the members but Charles arrived separately afterwards. I believe the last time he attended Wimbledon was in 1970.......

Prince Charles meets tennis royalty on first visit to Wimbledon since 1970
Quote:
Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall met tennis royalty on Wednesday during Charles' first visit to Wimbledon in 42 years. Charles met former British number one Tim Henman, while Camilla, who arrived slightly earlier, chatted with former finalist Andy Roddick. They went on to take their seats in Centre Court's royal box, where they sat alongside Sir Bruce Forsyth and wife Wilnelia to watch Roger Federer take on Fabio Fognini, players who both took a bow before the match.

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall are on a three day trip to Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly as the Prince of Wales is celebrating 60 years as the Duke of Cornwall.

Today, July 2, they officially opened Heartlands, met staff, supporters and the local community involved in this community-led regeneration project and attended a garden party to celebrate Cornwall and to mark the 60th anniversary as the Duke of Cornwall.

The Isles of Scilly usually get better weather than the rest of the UK given their southerly location, not today it would seem. It's a beautiful part of the world, and Charles actually owns the Isles as Duke of Cornwall.
