Family crisis? Family crisis?
What are they talking about??? Her father is supposedly dying and what were they supposed to do? Be cheerful and wave to everyone?
I am sure Charles is a caring husband and supports Camilla through this difficult time.

Some people were happy to speculate that because they did not go to church, there had to be a family crisis, instead of the truth, which appears to have been that Camilla was devasted at the worsening health of her much loved Father. I would imagine knowing that the photographers would be out in force, they had to steel themselves to face them.:)

Even the SNP leader, without knowing the facts, launched an attack on them wasting police time.

And tell me, if there were a crisis, who would hastily charter a plane, drove the wife personally to airport and flew with her home just one day earlier? And postponed long planned duties suddenly? I think it ran all too well with them, the press have to make big things around this. Otherwise it will be too boring...

As soon as I heard that her father was ill and they missed an event, I put 2 and 2 together. Its a shame that those who are criticizing wouldn't do the same. Surely, in all his years as PoW, has he just not shown up for an event. The people who should be blamed are those who work for them. Surely, it wouldn't have taken a minute to make a quick call to cancel and apologize. Surely, every one at some point and time had a love one fall ill.

From what I can see, the church was notified but, the police didn't have the sense to radio their base and ask if they had heard anything or make enquiries themselves. If Camilla only heard, for instance 15 minutes before they were due to attend, it would have been to late to notify very many people and someone always thinks someone else has done it all. In view of the terrible upset any news like this would cause, I do think a little compassion and understanding is called for.

At such devastating news, it is amazing what slips your mind.

I haven't heard anything officially. But Laura and husband Harry were out at an opening at the Royal academy summer show, I think on Wednesday night and Camilla made the reception on Thursday at CH. My guess is her father's crisis passed somewhat if the family is out and about.

Really sad news!From theRoyalist.com
Clarence House has announced in the last few moments that the Duchess of Cornwall's father, Major Bruce Shand, has died at the age of 89. It's been reported in recent weeks that he'd been battling cancer.

Oh...poor Camilla. Hope, her husband is there for her. And she has to be there for her family, too. Hopefully she comes through well.:(

I am so very sorry for Camilla. She and her father were very close, it must be a terrible lose for her.:(
I am sure Charles will be there for her, as well as other members of her family.

Camilla's father Bruce Shand dies

Camilla was 'devastated' by Maj Bruce Shand's death
The Duchess of Cornwall's father Major Bruce Shand has died at the age of 89, Clarence House said.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/5069520.stm

Obituary: Bruce Shand

Major Bruce Shand, father of the Duchess of Cornwall, had a long and eventful life, winning two Military Crosses in World War II before becoming a respected wine merchant and huntsman

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/5052478.stm


My deepest sympathy for Camilla and all her family at this sad time.

I am very sad for the family and Camilla. She is very close to her father and thanks for his support during her dark ages. At least Major Shand saw his daughter married the man she has loved for more than three decades.
