Thanks, iceflower. I especially like this pic. Charles and Camilla seem to really enjoy working together. They seem to have such a good time!

You hit the nail on the head . I think Charles and Camila do indeed enjoy each other's company, whether at work or leisure, and it's evident from their facial expressions. Sometimes I get the impression that one knows what the other is thinking, which wouldn't surprise me one bit, because they have known each other for decades, literally.

And Daria_S, I absolutely share that impression (although I generally think that in many happy cases you don't need decades to reach that intuition )

Here are some additional pics of the opening of the Bodnant Welsh Food Centre I've mentioned:

And the first pics of day 2 in Wales:

Today the Prince of Wales as Patron of the Brecon Cathedral Choir Endowment Appeal together with the Duchess of Cornwall attended a Service of Thanksgiving and then met artists exhibiting in the Brecon Small Picture Show in Brecon, as Patron The British Horse Logging Association the Prince of Wales met teams of horse loggers and watched a demonstration of woodland management techniques at Llwynywermod, Dyfed. And the Duchess of Cornwall visited Ysgol Penmaes in Brecon and met volunteers and local residents during a visit to mark the 200th anniversary of the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal.

I think Camila looks absolutely delightful in the green suit. The color is great for her. She also appears to be having a great time on her engagements.

I agree. I thought about moving this to "The Marriage", but since I'm still commenting about Charles and Camilla working together at public functions, it seems okay to leave it here. I wonder if it's my imagination or if anyone else has noticed - it seems to me that since their anniversary, and especially since the Diamond Jubilee weekend, C&C have been more relaxed in public. It's not like the early days of the marriage when they were sharing for the first time the sights, places and experiences Charles had only been able to tell her about for so many years, but it's nice to watch. Sometimes Charles seems to be getting that mischievous look he had in one of the C&C wedding pictures (which I can't find). On the balcony that weekend, they seemed particularly close, for them almost cuddly, until a diagonal shot showed Charles had found an ideal spot where he could put his arm behind Camilla and support (I assume) his back on a giant pillar. I thought it was cute anyway. Also, that day IMO Charles looked unbelievably hot … okay … really, really regal.

thank god someone else noticed! I thought I was the only one. after the little crisis that I believe they may have had this year, now they truly do seem happier than ever. they really do seem to be enjoying spending time together and the jubilee weekend, Wimbledon as well as various engagements showed that very well. I don't know what happened, but they seem to be in a really good place now

maryr, which picture do you mean? could you describe it?

Well said . I've noticed the ease when I was watching the visit to BBC Studios in Scotland. It was like second nature for Charles to reassure his wife that it was fine if she didn't want to read the forecast. I think that alone gave Camila a bit more confidence to read it anyway. They do appear much closer during their engagements (not just physically, but bond-wise too), and I personally love observing that. I'd love to see the pictures you're alluding to. Do you think you could provide the links?

Looking for links, I realized my impressions of the two standing close, touching (arms or shoulders), came from watching continuous coverage of the last day on BBC America. This included the balcony group waiting for the flypast, and that is not included on any highlight video I found, so these links below won't help much. I saw a Jubilee dvd advertised for sale, but since the interaction between Charles and Camilla before the flypast is what I want to see, that time period may not be included there either. Most intriguing was wondering what he was doing with his arm behind her, and after seeing he was leaning on the pillar ... Anyway, I thought he looked very happy and proud.

If you mean the picture with the mischievous grin, I think it must have been in a magazine, or perhaps in Gyles Brandreth's book about C&C (I'm away from home now, and don't have the book with me). I can't find it online. It's like the other photos of Charles and Camilla arm in arm after the blessing, but Charles has that cat-who-swallowed-the-canary, and a bit naughtier, look on his face.

Thank you for the links! I can definitely see what you're talking about regarding the balcony picture. His Highness does indeed look very happy and at ease, and at that point it was probably with more than just his private life.

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall have spent their third day in Wales today, July 11. They met local food producers, residents and visitors during a visit to Aberaeron and while the Prince of Wales visited Llanrhystud Mill in Llanrhystud, Ceredigion and
(as President) attended a meeting of the Cambrian Mountains Initiative Partnership Board in Tregaron, the Duchess of Cornwall also hosted a tea party for the children and the staff of Ty Hafan children's hospice, Llwynywermod, Myddfai, Llandovery, Dyfed.

Iceflower, thank you for the lovely pictures and articles! The little girl was too cute, even if she did want her flowers back . Kids that age are funny about 'sharing' and 'giving'. They give you something, but then want it back right away. It's quite amusing to observe.

Would love to know what Camilla wrote on the plate pictured in picture 4.

Thank you for sharing the pics, Iceflower.

We now know that when it comes to diplomatic skills, Camilla is quite adept at it. As a true grandmother, she knew exactly how to handle the situation with a 22 month old. I thought it was so sweet that she got down to the child's level and instead of handing back the entire bouquet of flowers, she gave the little girl one. A good lesson in sharing. Totally priceless.
