Prince Charles: Being a grandfather urges need for climate change - Telegraph
Quote:
The Prince of Wales has disclosed that the prospect of becoming a grandfather has reinforced his environmental beliefs because he does not want to "hand on an increasingly dysfunctional world".

Great pictures and video clips! Looked like they both enjoyed themselves, and what a treat for the commuters .

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall appear to be so delightfully engaged with their guests. I really enjoy the picture of Camilla giving the traditional Maori greeting. I didn't realize it involved the "sharing of breathe".

I love Pic 3 where The Duchess appears to be checking out the ink! She does seem to have a natural curiosity about things. It's cool. I find more reasons to like her on a regular basis. I lived through the Di years and it is taking some time to unload my "baggage" but I definitely am!

I agree with both of you. Charles and Camilla seem to be having a great time.
When I saw that pic of the ink I immediately remembered that ink she got on her hand in one of their trips to Asia and then she washed her hands and the ink remained for quite a long time
And I too find reasons to like her on a regular basis. I'm far too young to have lived the Diana years so have no baggage at all. I follow Camilla basically since her marriage and loved her immediately. She's an amazing person who will make you unload the baggage completely sooner then later, I'm sure

Interesting if somewhat blunt interpretation of the way he sees things. Who is to say he is wrong.

Why would anyone think opinions have not changed since 2005. Opinions shift all the time. I really don't like when the press goes all "she's a wicked witch" on the Duchess of Cornwall. Get over it.

As usual, these visits will be discussed in the forums of the hosting royal families.

Exactly my thoughts. Camilla actually does this quite often - she will dissappear for a few weeks and then resurface and have a few very very active days where she will be doing many engagements.
