Great pix giov. thank you so much. As for the horrors of dog ownership I can only suggest you all "Downsize". The obligations of owning a Chihuahu are far less onerous!

Drives me crazy when people don't pick up after their dogs! Of course I try when I can and have enough baggies (I usually take 3 with me on a walk just in case) but it's sort of like changing your own children's nappies, you can do that, but somebody elese's I get that gag reflex. . .
I'm glad she does that. I'm with you, Ada, I have a lot of respect for her for doing that!

Remind me not to send you my mailing address, BeatrixFan. BTW, I recently read your article on Princess Margaret and enjoyed it quite a bit. Thank you.

When the Duchess of Cornwall Camilla Parker Bowles walked her dog in Green Park in London last week, it was no ordinary paw-wow. The future queen of England's stroll helped give a pat on the back of Nepal's stray dogs.

Naughty BeatrixFan.

I've been very ill for the last 2 weeks, roughly, and one night, about 4 a.m., I saw a news piece about Charles and Camilla. The news said that Charles is riding a new wave of high popularity, while Camilla's has plummeted in the last year. Do any of you in the U.K. know why Camilla's popularity has tanked? Is it because of the accusations of laziness??

Highly illegal as well, unless you are Sharon Osborne who said she sends it on a regular basis!

Hope you are feeling better now! I think it depends who did the poll, according to some her popularity has remained at a low level, others it increased and then fell. I think it depends on the type of poll and how they phrase the question. Yahoo for instance has had a poll but that is one of these where you can clear your cookies and vote again and again. I have to wonder whatever the result, how you can ask even a thousand people their opinion and come up with any accurate answer, representing the entire population of the UK.

I think part of it had to do with a bunch of negative publicity when she decided not to accompany Charles on the Indonesian part of his tour because the climate was too hot and humid or she needed to arrange his birthday party or whatever. This is somewhat the same sort of thing that the younger generation are catching flak for, as did Princess Margaret - royals are expected to grin and bear it and just get on with it when things are unpleasant, they aren't supposed to cherry pick the pleasanter stuff and duck the difficult or strenuous bits. Her detractors are just waiting for this sort of excuse to pile on, and I think there's been a knock-on effect on public opinion.

A percentage of the British public didn't even realise a royal tour was happening.

I just feel that Prince Charles is being more and more accepted by his people. His wife the Duchess will be accepted too. She really seems to bring the best of Charles out. And to me a happy couple will be wonderful for Britian and the world stage.

I tried to find out from YouGov how many people were polled and the criteria laid down by the company asking for the poll. So far no reply. Speaking to some friends and employees this morning over coffee, I was amazed to find that none of them watch the news, buy and read a paper or read the news online! Too much doom and gloom, apparently they rely on hearing anything startling from people who may have seen/read the news, which is all very well if they repeat what they have heard accurately, without their own opinion.
As a UK citizen, I am not 'concerned' by poll results as I have never seen any evidence that 1004 people can show how a few million might think.

I have to agree with you. Its difficult to rely on these polls as the sample sizes tend to be quite small, and often do not necessarily stretch the entire social fabric of the kingdom. I think most people have accepted Camilla as the wife of Charles, and I guess, in time will accept her as Queen.

I know this is a little of off the subject, but the polls for Presidential race in US said for most of the race the candiates were tied. We all know that that was untrue and to my way of thinking - just like the Duchess' press - something the Press can write about on a subject that really doesn't have anything to write on it.

Thanks for the pictures, giov! Looks like it was a lovely event, and the Duchess looked quite comfortable and happy around all of those cute animals.
