Kitty, I think you have just introduced me to a new hobby! I'm not a Scot, don't look good in plaids, and know only the Black Watch by sight, but I'm hooked. This site, in addition to showing a lot of different patterns, also has a little key to help identify the tartan:
House of Tartan: Search by Colour

I think you have to email them the code for the colors, but my computer and my eyes are a little wonky this evening, but tomorrow by daylight I may
tackle it anew. Camilla's suit is pretty; I like the little covered buttons.

Camillas style is flawless!

And there is more, she always seems so approachable, good natured and laid back. I cannot imagine anyone feeling uneasy around her.

She really does look like she'd be lovely to hang out with and she just looks so natural and comfortable with herself. I especially loved seeing her event earlier this week with the riding center... I'm a horsey girl, and I bet she'd be amazing to go horseback riding with :)

She looks like she'd be great chatting you up with a gin and tonic in hand and enjoying a good story or two. I don't think anyone could feel self-conscious around Camilla, and if so, she'd be the first to put you at your ease. As it is, I love that third picture where she's tapping the cap of the little girl who has such an adorable expression on her face.

I like that first picture of her in the full skirt and tall boots. She looks like the Camilla of her youth, when she first knew Charles.

Camila looks fabulous. Her outfit is spot on. I love her smile in the fourth picture, and the interactions with kids in pictures two and three.

Oh, I completely agree with you. I think she would be very easy to talk to, and if she sensed that you were not comfortable, she'd be the one to probably crack a joke, to break the ice a bit. I love meeting those types of people, because my shyness usually lands me into the feelings of awkwardness when meeting people for the first time.

I can't help but think of Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother when reading this. As you might remember, King George VI was very shy (and his stuttering didn't really help either!). The queen on the other hand, was more outgoing and more personable, and some have said without her, the King's reign might have not gone as well as it did. Maybe it's a bit of stretch, but it seems like PoW is similar to King George VI in that he doesn't appear to appeal to people very well, and Camilla is the more outgoing. It's only a very rough analogy and shouldn't be taken too far, but that's just my very general impression....

I can see the general similarities here. What I did observe though, is that the Prince of Wales is a lot more comfortable in public when in the company of his wife. She may be able to give him that little bit of encouragement by simply being there.

Actually I think it is a very good analogy. I've read many many times where Charles has always been on the shy, introverted side for most of his life and Camilla has one of those personalities that just instantly draws a person out. This could very well be the reason that Charles was attracted to her in the first place. They work so well together because they balance each other out.

Not a rough analogy at all, but a good one. Charles and Camilla enjoy a great balance in their marriage where each supplies what the other may lack, and you can see how much the PoW has relaxed and shows more warmth since his marriage to Camilla.

Yes, I've noticed over the last 10 years or so that the PoW seems to be more comfortable and relaxed out in public. Why he even went and held up Camilla's granddaughter on the Buckingham Palace's balcony at the royal wedding last spring--not something I'd have expected to see him doing that!

So Camilla has been good for him, I'd say.
