I really can't see a problem, if she has that amount of money to spend and it is not coming from the British taxpayer, why the fuss?

She is being condemned but, no one even knows if it is true.

And if it was true? Who will really care? If Charles is paying the money, they can do what they want. The coiffeur can be happy about the lot of money. From this money he is living, so other people are happy with it. And so on and on...It´s alright.

I just think the money could be spent else where. It is his money and he can do what he wants but that is a lot of money for something that can be done on your own.

It dosen't matter how hard you try you can never get it looking as good when done by a pro. It's not that expensive ive paid £300 for a new hair style before now and im not in the public eye, spend spend spend YRH you look great for that price.

I should think half the women in the world would not say no to having a stylist come and do their hair. Most women go to the hairdresser if they are going anywhere 'special', why should Camilla have to be different.
When you are at a restaurant and look at how many of the women have 'done' their own hair, it might be better for them if they did have their own stylist.
If she spent money on clothes, everyone would complain, the same with anything she spends her money on, what do you want her to do, save it for old age?
As has already pointed out, it is only gossip made up to sell a paper anyway!

Yes many people spend lots of money to get their hair done on special events but getting it done everyday when it even istn that good is a bit ostentatious.

We don't know if it is every day, The whole article is a work of fiction and yet you are condemning her over it, without any facts! What you think it is OK for her to spend her money on, is probably totally different to half the people on here!

Whenever Camilla goes out into the public arena, it is a 'special' event. I think her hair, on most occasions looks lovely (there is nothing she or anyone can do about the wind blowing it).:)
Good luck to her whatever she spends on her hair stylist, an amount we don't know about!:)

Probably they added the cost of the hairdresser and the cost of her maid up and built that enormous sum. Camilla surely has a ladies' maid who looks after Camilla's dresses ect. and does her hair like she was shown by the hairdresser? If you include all costs for an employée including employer's shares for social security etc. and add the cost for a famous hairdresser now and then you may end up with an amount like that.

Just my guess, of course...

Guess or not, I hope that its more to it than just getting her hair done.
That is just an obscene amount of money for just hair!

4380 euros approx £3000. If that's is all her staff get, they should really complain! Lets at least try to keep it in perspective. It is not a great deal of money considering the cost of living for most people in London!
The article is not based on facts anyway.

Really the amount of money (if correct) is not obscene. Don't get me wrong..to the average Joe yes that is a lot of money. But to someone of her social status..its not. If true, I am sure it compensates for the fact that the hairdresser is at her beck and call (not to criticize that just stating a fact). Most likely it is also subsidizing the fact that by being so readily available, he is not taking other clients.

I imagine that any one in the public eye spends what we would think of as an insane amount for things like hair, clothes, makeup, manicures, etc. Its the cost of doing business.

Since Charles' income comes from the Duchy of Cornwall, not the taxpayers and they seem to have enough money, its not a problem and it seems pretty normal for someone in Camilla's position.

since i only know $ I can only say it seems like a large amount in any currancy. but it doesn't seem my business if its not taxpayer money, i decided to give the Duchess a break way back in san fransico, when she was sentimental about those 2 roses from the homeless men.
Any woman wants to look good when she goes out, and heaven help her if doesn't because they pick the worst photos they can (there was just an awful 1 of princess Anne in the papers this week).
i must say if that amount is for her whole staff that seems a bit stingy. Just another example of how much he loves her and wants her to be happy.

Some hotels cost more than that for one night B & B, extra if you want lunch and dinner as well!

The original post was from fanletizia (post 60), followed by this post by Warren (post 76)
Quote:
First quote: "One courtier told the Daily Mail..."
Second quote: "Celebrity stylist Richard Ward estimated Camilla could pay anything up to (Aus)$1,000 for a home visit..."I doubt that the Duchess will pay the full going rate, though"..."
Clarence House: "declined to comment."
'A spokesman said': "The Prince meets the Duchess of Cornwall's personal costs from his own private income, on which he pays tax."

Not a word from Camilla's hairdresser Hugh Green.
So before we hang, draw and quarter Camilla, bear in mind that it is all made up!

Talking

The prices Sophie's hairstylist quoted was for both a haircut and blowout. Most of the time Camilla probably isnt getting her haircut so it is less and I am positive Hugh is giving her deal. Personally I doubt if she is paying more then US $3500 a month. A decent sum but Charles from what I read gives her a certain amount higher since she married per year for clothes, hair etc. if she wants to spend it on Hugh that would be her decision. Although I doubt if Charles cares if she goes over. His matra these days seems If Camilla is happy,I am happy.

Charles is always to allow his wife to spend his money to support the lifestyle because his wife is the crowned princess of GB. He is quite glad to make Camilla as happy as he can. He is a very doting husband, father, brother.... It is in his character to do so.
I think Camilla is careful with Charles's money, see how she recycles her wardobe and we know how she is. Hair is very important to Camilla, she needs to ensure everything is perfect for her. She is still media-shy though she is very warm to the people.
