Thanks, Skydragon! I didn't know about that part of Camilla's biography either. And it's a very rare picture of the Duchess in childhood. She looks pretty

Camilla hasn't facially changed at all - you can really tell who it is on that photograph!

LOL...but you´re right. Fascinating...nothing at that time foreshadowed that the future queen is on the photo.

The Duchess looks wonderful. I think she is doing a good job. What really impresses me the most about her is her the way that the wind is blowing & the weather isn't the greatest but it doesn't seem to bother her in the least, she just keeps smiling and having a grand time. Very down to earth and graceful at the same time. Charles has really increased his public image with Camilla as his wife.

SHe looks nice in her latest appearance. I always love the genuiness of the Duchess of Cornwall. She has found her own style and I have observed that she more self-confidence now.

Camilla and Charles left Scotland a day early so Camilla could be with her father. Major Shand must be dying. :( . He has had cancer for awhile now and I don't think he made Laura's wedding. (maybe the reception since it was at Raymill.) which I thought at the time was bad sign.

The Scotsman had article about C+C not making church yesterday although they were scheduled. The police were complaining because because they showed up for no reason at the church. I guess C+C left that morning.

Oh no, how sad for her. It must be acutely, if they couldn´t wait one day for departure. But she has a thoughtful husband, who will care for her.

How sad, her father must have taken a turn for the worse. I know she was close to her mother and I think she is very close to her father too.

I meant "today"...not "tofay"...that seems to be a strange Chinese dish.

That's a beautiful color suit on her but IMO the angles of some of the photographs highlight her paunch too much.

Royal couple cut holiday short to visit duchess's sick father

PRINCE Charles and the Duchess of Rothesay yesterday ended their holiday on Royal Deeside a day earlier than planned after the duchess flew to the bedside of her frail, elderly father.

Now there are speculations about a family crisis. I mean her father is dying! Who on earth is laughing and giggling with his husband or wife this time?
