muriel, i don´t think that there is a such special system in the Duchess´ diary. In January she and the Prince had a ´new years break´before returning to work.
She had several engagements at the end of January and also now in February, at the beginning of March she will join the Prince to an official visit to the Caribbean.
I´m sure she takes time off for herself and her family, friends etc., but i don´t think she works only in an regular timing.
milla Ca - I think you are right, there is no special system that schedules engagements like that, but I guess she just has a preference to have work periods and "off duty" times, and I guess the people who plan her diary probably bear that in mind

Don't forget, that just because she is not out at a 'visible' engagement, does not mean that she is not out on an engagement. Many times she has visited returning troops, the injured or bereaved families, without the presence of the media. She also spends a lot of time writing to well wishers. Just because we don't see her working, doesn't mean she is having 'off duty' time.

Camilla takes her ex-husband on holiday
February 28

The Prince is understood to be relaxed about his wife's break and is said to have encouraged her to go.

It is wonderful that Camilla and her former husband have maintained such a good relationship, it is great that the imediate family unit (Mother, Father, Children and Grand Kids) get a time to relax together.

Skydragon - You are right. She probably does do quite a lot of engagements that the Press do not cover - either because the Press are not told about them or the Press choose not to cover them as they are not glamorous. I guess, in addition to this, there must be quite a lot of time spent on diary planning, which I understand she sits in with Charles.

Hardly "work", but I presume Camilla (with or without Charles) also spends time with other members of the royal family, including the Queen and the DoE to get to know them better and to develop her relationship with them. Charles is not really known to be particularly close or deeply interested in any of his family, other than his sons........ all of which would suggest that the DoC probably does not have much time for G&Ts and lunches with old mates like Jilly Cooper any more!

Thank you for that! The beauty of grandchildren is that, you can hand them back! (Yes, I love our little darlings to bits, but sometimes it is so nice when nanny puts them to bed)!

I would love to see Camilla playing with her grand-daughters!

That article refers to Rosemary as Andrew's "new wife", but I thought they'd been married for quite a few years now, no?

They married 1996, only 12 years from now...really a ´new wife´...

So, how did the vacation add to Camilla's carbon footprint? Forgive me, I'm a little punchy from having received almost 5 feet of snow this winter.

I wondered where Camilla was during Harry's homecoming.

The constant criticism of the Duchess has irritated me for years. Though only recently a royal watcher i have long admired her for her grace and endurance through the years good to know she has a few other fans.

How nice that you reply to this thread although the topic ´doesn´t matter ´ to you!

Given that Harry returned to the UK on very short notice, it would have been difficult for the Duchess to return as quickly. (I'm not thinking that there was any reason for the Duchess to snub him, Harry and she seem to get along very well.)

I'll tell you what I tell my cats... "Be nice. Don't fight!"

If Harry had served his full term as expected, Camilla would have been home when Harry arrived back in Britain. Due to the unexpected and sudden nature of his return, Camilla was taking a well deserved holiday from which she obviously couldn't rush back from without disrupting plans for the visit to the Carribean with her husband.

I would love to have gone to this museum. I did get to the Costume Museum in Bath last year but too little time to do everything interesting on vacation.

Some folks wouldn't be interested in fans but I know I carry one in my purse at all times. Even with air-conditioning there are days that I still need one in the Southern US. Last year in England I did find many non-air conditioned buildings. Those of us on the tour group that had brought fans found ourselves passing them around at times, especially in the theatres.
