Yes I was reading in the BBC Article. She is turning on the lights at the Posh shopping place. I dont remember exactly what it is called but the beatles watch gaurd there and your not allowed to run or linger and you must be quite. Its is one of those intresting places that you only find in london. Here is another article about Prince Charles quitting polo. It is right for him to retire, to much stress on him. Hes a newlywed, of course he is going to want to spend as much time with Camilla as possible. They love and enjoy each other.

I love how london has public ceremonys to turn on christmas lights. It adds to the festive and holiday feel. We only have tree lightings in the states. I wish they would do the whole city like in london.

Good for Camilla! It's blooming boring stood about for ages watching however many chukas. He was knocked out a while ago and I should think that Camilla, being a rider, is well aware of the injuries he could sustain. Just look at what happened to Christopher Reeve.

Well - I live here and I loathe getting minor celebs to turn on tacky lights so I'm suprised that a member of the RF has done it this year. She looked absolutely wonderful!

It's so romantic, they really seem to enjoy one another's company and that is so important in a successful marriage. I'm so glad Charles has, at last found such happiness.:)

PrinceJohnny25, would you mind substituting 'Chuck' for 'Charlie' - I can't stand the name Chuck! But I adore Milla as a pet name for HRH.

The tiara is being discussed in the Royal Jewels section of the board.

BTW, in Burlington Arcade, the guys that patrol are beadles, not beatles.

Well, as long as we're talking about names, is there anything wrong with calling him Charles?

I am an american and I like the name Chuck. Charlie has a bad connotation with me. Everytime I hear that name I think of Charlie from Coronation Street and I cant stand him. Chuck and Milla sounds funner to me. Charles is so boring to me.

It really annoys me to find that some articles are unable to call her by her name. She is Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall and as if to make it worse, they have moved London to Cumbria!

You poor thing. I know you live outside of Detroit as do many of my relatives and there is nothing to do in that city...just poverty and crime.

In Chicago, we have the Magnificent Mile Lights Festival Parade this Saturday to light up Michigan Avenue..on WGN...We also have the Thanksgiving Day Parade, the Christmas German Bazzar, and the lighting of the city tree a week from Friday. So we do up the whole city at one time for the holidays..
