Wow, I'm very pleased that despite her illness she still made this public engagement.

What illness does she have?

I know that she has a broken leg but that isn't an illness and doesn't stop a lot of people from doing their jobs (I know it didn't stop me from doing mine of teaching on the second floor of my school with only stairs).

An illness might stop me if I was bedridden but a broken leg - no. Sure it could stop some people working but not all.

A broken body part can be bad, but it mainly just hinders people from doing their usual activity. My brother broke his wrist and he still had to go to school, etc. I'm glad she's out and about. It's good to show the people that regardless of how she feels, she will still put her country first.

What a nice article. And what a great idea to use a scooter to get around.

Well, one can surmise that Camilla has more health issues and is older than you. She tried crutchers and ended up in a wheelchair so I am guessing that it has not been as easy for her as it obviously has been for you.

Not surprisingly we didn't get Camilla's whole health "report" so we are relying on our best guess and her move from crutches to wheelchair gives us a fair indication that there is a little more going on than we thought.

She isn't that much older than me - a couple of years.
I still maintain that a broken leg isn't an illness but an injury.
She used a chair on occasions, a scooter on occasions and has also used crutches, which is the norm to maintain strength in the other leg.

Can you tell me where she moved from crutches to a wheelchair - I have seen photos of her using a chair, crutches and a scooter with moving from the crutches to the scooter to review the troops but using the crutches when with the soldier who was determined to stand for a member of the roya family?

The chair makes sense when trying to getting somewhere on time but do you have a report that she isn't using crutches most of the time? That isn't my understanding.

No argument from me there.

Marg I was thinking that myself. Did you know that Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall's mother died from Osteoporosis? I think her grandmother too. I know the Duchess is very active in her Osteoporosis patronage. I just wonder if Camilla might have the illness. It does run in families. So it my be an injury with side effects from an illness.

BINGO! That is exactly what I was thinking. I am hoping that DoC does NOT suffer from that malady!

Note that the cast is gone.
Camilla looking lovely, as she continues to recycle her clothes from previous trips to Asia and the Middle East.

I can only bow in front of this woman - no matter how recent her adventure is, she's there for her people, as always! And looking lovely once again. I agree.
