It was very sad to hear of the passing of the Duchess of Cornwall's father Major Shand. My sympathies to her, her siblings and all of the family. She seemed very close to her father and it must be a diffcult time for her.

Apparantely, Camilla learnt her father was in critical condition late in the evening and rushed to him, accompanied by Prince Charles. She was with him during the last hours of his life.

All public engagements for the Duchess in the following week are cancelled.

Some modern behavioralists refer to those in middle age as the "sandwich" generation. Camilla experienced the joy of her children's weddings and the agony of her father's death, all in a few short months. Our parent's deaths remind us that we are "next" in the cycle of life.

Condolences to Camilla, Annabel, and Mark.

Although death is a very sad reality for those of us left behind, I was brought up to acknowledge that death is another part of life and that one shouldn't fear it.

My grandmother, who was very ill throughout much of her life (progressive heart disease, an aneurysm on the aorta and had sustained 7 heart attacks since her 40's) always maintained that death is like walking from one room to another.

My condolences.

I agree with you. Camilla was hugely painful in 1994 for her mother's death when Charles confessed his adultery on the TV. She must feel deeply how frail the life is.She is a strong woman, but she reseves very soft points for her family and her friends. She is very family oriented and just hope that Prince Charles will be there for her.

I feel so bad for Camilla. My condolences to her and her family. At least she was with her father when he died and Charles was with her.

I hope the funeral doesn't turn into a media circus. I remember hearing the press were bad during her mother's funeral.

Camilla is very fortunate to have had her father with her for this long. Although the loss must be very painful she will most likely be very thankful for all the years they have had together.

Thanks for that AgnesK. According to some reports, Charles is ready to cancel his appointments if his wife needs him.

Whether it is expected or not, it is still a very traumatic time if you love someone, as much as Camilla clearly loved her father.

I am very sad for Camilla. It is very sad to lose your father. I glad that she has Prince Charles by her side to help her during this very sad time in her life.
