William swaps the nightclub for a quiet meal with Camilla - and there's no sign of Charles or Harry

Prince William last night continued his hectic Christmas party schedule - but this time ditched his posh pals in favour of a more sobre affair with his stepmother.

Wills joined The Duchess of Cornwall for a meal at classy London restaurant, Scott's in Mayfair last night and the pair were also accompanied by her children Tom and Laura. Parker-Bowles and the young prince have rarely been seen out together and their outing was especially notable for the absence of her husband Prince Charles.

Pictures:

William 2

I'm glad William and Camilla appear to have such warm relationships, it's really wonderful.
The article is not entirely correct however, Prince William and Tom have been friends for a long time, and there have been out seen together for many occassions. And William always appeared to have great relationships with Laura as well.

I agree the feather is just horrible! She does look lovely in the coat though.

Thank you Avalon for posting the pics of yesterday!

I really like it to see William together with Camilla, Laura and Harry (L.) at this family dinner. Just the absence of Charles and Harry makes the good informal relationship they have more than clear.

Thank you iceflower and Nico for the pics of today!

Some days ago we could read about the close realtionship of Camilla to ´her soldiers´. So i think it was a special event for both sides.

I think this could be the explanation for that feather.

I will forgive her the adornment for the visits she makes in private to our boys!

Yes, me too. She seems to do so much for people that nobody has a clue about. Wonderful Lady!

Has somebody ever seen or read something about any family contact of Camilla with the wife of Archduke Sigismund of Austria-Tuscany?
The Archduchess Elyssa Juliet is née Edmonstone, a direct descendant of Alice Keppel's brother, the 5th. Baronet Edmonstone as daughter of the 7th Baronet and thus a cousin of Camilla. She married the archduke in 1999 - did Camilla attend the wedding?

What a wonderful story! The more I read about HRH the more I like her; she is truly generous, gracious and down to earth--making her a real asset to the Royal Family--

Although it is a very appropriate question to ask, Duchess of Cornwall has decided to wear this masterpiece. So she liked it then. The coat fitted her well, whereas the feather element of the hat looked rather odd.

The Duchess has made a lovely speech. The more I see of her works, the more I like her.

Off topic: Thank you Great Britian and her soldiers for being a good friend to the United States.

The Duchess presented Michael Whitaker with the Christmas Stakes Trophy. She also presented the Raymond Brooks-Ward Memorial Trophy to Ellen Whitaker. The Duchess met the riders of the Shetland Pony Grand National competition. She visited the stables. And best of all, The Duchess met Santa Claus!

Does it seem to anyone else that the Duchess' workload has picked up and she is doing more solo engagements?

I agree. Since her hysterectomy, her workload has definitely picked up. I think her energy level is back to normal now. I remember reading around the time of the surgery, she was always tired. I think we are finally seeing Camilla at her normal energy level. And I suspect people aren't going to be able to say she is lazy anymore.
