I think last year's card was meant to show them at an event which included children and grandchildren from both their previous marriages and as Roslyn stated earlier, a blended family. With this in mind, I change my opinion to think that a picture at the christening may very well be possible. It does seem that every year the picture that they use are taken from an event that was memorable for the couple and not one where they sit and pose for the sole purpose of the card. I think both Charles and Camilla are going to be quite over the moon with the arrival of Baby Cambridge.

I think Roslyn meant Andrew Parker Bowles.

This card makes his eyes look sooooooo close together. I wish someone had told him that before it got the official OK

Charles looks as disinterested as one can be. Hardly an adoring grandparent. Just a photo op. He could have been hold a kanagroo. I hope he can show more emotion for his own.

So charming...

Well go to 3.59 mns and see by yourself :



I see a granddad (ok stepgrandad) holding a little girl and gently talking to her. But we see what we want to see isn't it ? Little girls or Kangaroos.

Regarding the 2012 Christmas card, it's fine. The 2010 one,C and C skiing, was way much better imo.

Probably not the photo I would've used but they both look nice and the Duchess of Cornwall should smile all the time. She looks like a different person when she does.
All in all, its a lovely card.

I agree, the skiing one was a lovely picture. Love the more candid pictures!

Charles looked like a loving and caring grandfather in this footage - he really is good with small children, even if her prefers not to have them around him and it is clear that the little girl is also comfortable with him - that is a sign that he does spend time with these children despite the fact that we seem to be told that Camilla spends the time with her grandchildren and not Charles.

I was just wondering about the Christmas card - the picture is apparently ( so i read on one of the many articles) inside, so what exactly is on the front of the card?

The front of the card is emblazoned with the feather symbol of the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall's cipher.

'Darling, I am really hopeless at this!': Duke and Duchess of Cornwall entertain residents packing Christmas hampers on east London housing estate
Quote:
The Duchess of Cornwall rewarded a day spent visiting community food projects in east London with a trip to Mayfair's illustrious fish restaurant Scott's. Camilla was having lunch with family and friends of the food writer - including Elton John and Ronnie Wood - to celebrate her son Tom Parker-Bowles' 38th birthday. Earlier the duchess had visited Bethnal Green and Peckham with her husband Prince Charles to pack Christmas food hampers and learn about food banks.
I absolutely love the pictures in the article, especially this one of Camilla and some of the residents; looks like they had a lot of fun!
