Thank you Artemisia.

I'm glad Camilla is supporting this. After the phone hacking scandals and the very poor impression (on me) made by tabloid websites like the online Daily Mail, it's good to be reminded of the job being done by journalists like Marie Colvin and other foreign correspondents who risk their lives reporting news.

I agree with you. It's because of the real journalists we know what is happening in the world.
Otherwise, a lot of atrocities and crimes would have remained unreported and unknown.

It'll be Camilla's first Australian honorary military appointment, and only the second non-UK one (she has been appointed Honorary Colonel-in-Chief of The Queen's Own Rifles of Canada in 2010).

I envy Camilla being able to do this. Personally I'd love to be there myself.

I won't be surprised if Charles doesn't attend either as he is due on PNG on the 3rd November meaning a need to leave the UK on the 1st (due to the time difference you lose a day flying from London).

Something here is not right. The Center's home page notes a visit by Camilla in the past. Welcome to Soukya

Further, the site links to a press report about a 5 day stay Camilla had there in Oct. 2010: http://soukya.com/images/media/Final...Times_2010.pdf

Well seems accurate after all :

I think it's great that Camila gets to take a relaxing trip before the upcoming tour. She has a chance to unwind, and get the energy thst she needs.

With Charles & 5 grandkids, she needs a vacation. William & Kate went on vacation and they are going again in November. Harry went to vacation. Camilla needs a vacation. Maybe it's for Laura. Or maybe it's Camilla early Christmas present to Laura & her staff.

She is also traveling in the right direction so it's really just a layover.

I don't think any royal needs a vacation except a monarch. However everyone wants a vacation, I want one now and i don't remember the last time I saw/ hear Camilla was on holiday.

It can be two-in-one: acclimatization (Camilla worried about it) and holiday

Camilla has apparently extended the normal two months summer holiday the royals have each year in Scotland by including a week-long stopover on her way to PNG, Australia and NZ.

She will meet up with Charles, probably at Singapore, and from there fly to PNG and be ready for the conditions there and probably will hit the ground running.

Smart thing to do. She not only will be better used to the weather etc. then, but it also saves a plane flight back and forth and therefor much better for the enviroment.

Not really saving a plane ride as she had to fly to that region anyway regardless if it was early or with her husband.

I recall the vacation to the Mediterranean with her daughter and some friends during the week of Diana's memorial service. I don't know if there has been any holiday since.

I think one reason we don't hear too much about Camilla and Charles taking holidays is because for the most part, their idea of a holiday is relatively staying close to home over exotic vacations. Camilla takes time off to go to Ray Mill and spend time with her family and Charles has been known to quietly go to Romania or Birkhall or skiing etc. These two royals definitely aren't the jet setting couple of the 21st century with exotic vacations all over the globe.
