'Make the most of it': Duchess of Cornwall reassures piglet on visit to charity farm
Quote:
The Duchess of Cornwall couldn’t resist tickling an adorable piglet on a trip to an ‘inspirational’ farm today – but was warned not to get too attached. Camilla was told the week-old was destined to be turned into sausages in six months’ time. ‘Oh dear, well make the most of it,’ she said to the animal. ‘I know you will be well looked after, at least.’
She also shared a bit of information about her grandchildren:
Quote:
And she told the Mail that she planned to get some chickens of her own at Ray Mill, her private country residence, for her twin grandsons Gus and Louis. The two-year-olds have moved with their parents, Harry and Laura Lopes, to Marlborough, close to Camilla’s home. Laura, the duchess’s daughter by her first marriage, also has an elder daughter, Eliza.
Camilla said: ‘We have chickens at Highgrove but I am going to get to some too, for the twins. I want to buy them three each and am just deciding on the breeds. ‘I took them to get some eggs the other day and introduce them to chickens. One of the birds came flying out of the coop and charged over, wings flapping. One of the twins was quite calm but the other was in hysterics. ‘But I think having chickens will be very good for them. I love them and the boys can feed them when I am away.'

I agree with Camila; it's a great idea to introduce animals into children's lives. I think having chickens would be great, especially if the children can have some chores related to them, such as gathering the eggs and feeding them. It teaches responsibility and compassion, as well as keeps the kids outdoors.

It's similar to the Fresh Air Fund here in the States where underprivileged children from the city get to spend time in the country and on farms. Really a great activity and exposure for them.

But poor little piggy, sooned to be turned into sausage in another six months! I would hate to make a pet of my food, but that's farmlife, I guess.

I've never heard of Fresh Air Fund. Sounds like a great organization with great intentions.

As for the pig, I'm getting a little 'All Creatures Great and Small' moment, when a farmer who was very attached to his pigs refused to slaughter them. When the time came, he was inconsolable.

Here you go, Daria; this organization has been around since 1877:

How sensible and forward thinking is Camilla to get chickens for her grandchildren? She is much more in tune with nature and reality than many others who would think to buy an expensive toy or computer games.

The Duchess of Cornwall was in Liverpool and Wirral today, April 4, 2012.


In Liverpool she toured the "Beatles Story" visitor attraction and officially opened the new Diamond
Jubilee Gates, Reynolds Park. In Wirral she visited the Tranmere Community Project and the Wirral
Credit Union.

Here she's pictured leaving the Beatles Story in the Albert Dock during her visit to Liverpool:

Yes she did. According to the local tv news report on the BBC she was one of the original screaming fans at their concerts in the early to mid sixties & even went to a Beatles concert in Paris. At the end of her visit she bought some Beatles t-shirts, but it wasn't explained for whom they were for. There was some amused chat from the reporters as to how likely it was that she's bought one for Prince Charles!

My brain simply refused to picture Prince Charles wearing a Beatles t-shirt, even at home, in private.

Camila has good taste in music then . I can definitely picture her listening to their music and having a blast at a concert or two.

I'm with you. Prince Charles knows how to have fun, but not that much fun . Then again, we may be very, very surprised at how loose he may let when out of the public eye (which we'll never see, mind you).

Perhaps he secretly wears it under his suit.

Charles was a teenager in the 60s so why is it surprising to think that he mightn't have enjoyed the same music as the rest of his peers.

Exactly! People tend to think he was hatched fully grown at 60!

Sigh.

Please note all posts that have nothing to do with the topic of this thread have been deleted as off topic. For those who are unsure of the topic....it is Camilla's Current Events....not a rehash of the Charles/Camilla/Diana triangle, not the events of other persons who are not Camilla.

Any and all additional off topic posts will be deleted without notice.
