She has done a lot and I wonder if it was a full year i.e. from the wedding date, or within their specific accounting year, which as we all know can run Jan-Dec, Feb-Jan.

I was wondering the same. The article says her first year but how exactly did they compare her to the others? Not to mention that she was rather new to the game. Now she's a seasoned pro and I'm sure that her future engagements will out number her first year. Still, she shines in my book.

I'm always a little suspect on grading royals by the number of their engagements. Surely the quality must count for something?

Sadly quality doesn't count to the press, it doesn't sell papers quite as well.

I'm not sure where to put this piece. Since it's more of an editorial than news on Camilla, I thought this is as good as any other thread:

Palace worries over 'workshy' Camilla
Charles lashes out as royals hint his wife isn't pulling her weight

Why they can´t leave her alone? Weeks ago she was the star, now she is bad and lazy...Down with the press. And suddenly no words of crisis anymore? Now the chair was broken because of Buckingham Palace? Fly on the wall? Hope, Camilla will keep up it.

As a friend of mine says, "Here's to those who wish us well and those who don't can go to hell".

It goes along with the saying, "Da** if you do and da** if you don't".

The Daily Mail isn't going to say anything complimentary about Camilla, especially when hints of strife in the Wales household sells papers.

Well more to the point, Richard Kay is not going to say anything complimentary about Camilla. He was one of the reporters who claimed to 'groom' Diana for the public before she was even engaged.

Interestingly enough, he seems to defend the Royal Family for playing tough and insisting that Camilla do public duties right after her father died whereas when Diana was alive, his main criticism of the BRF was that the BRF was cold, unfeeling and inhuman. If the Royal Family had kicked up a fuss about Diana's public engagements after her father died, I think he would have blasted them. I'm not saying they did kick up a fuss about Camilla either but that's what he implies.

I'm puzzled by the criticism that Camilla is not doing solo events. I've found the joint events in general to be a lot more successful for royals. You get to see the interaction with the royals with each other that you don't get from an event with a single royal.

I thought Camilla had performed a few solo engagements. If they did start performing engagements separately as a matter of course, it'd just fuel the rumours that the marriage is on the rocks already. Honestly, they really can't do it right for some of these journalists.

Camilla performed 38 solo engagements. Personally, I think they have the mix just right at the moment. :)

I think that even if camilla did 1000 solo engagements per year, people will still be unhappy.Frankly she might as well please herself and start doing things slowly - what is the point of pleasing people who dislike her anyway?

Well she has had a good year as far as the public perception goes. I don't think a few articles are going to change that.

Plus it was said that the queen thinks about delegating more and more of her duties to Charles and Camilla. The queen is a careful person: she surely wants to be sure that Charles and Camilla as a couple are well received and do a good job before she gives them more important duties. So IMHo this first year was just the "apprenticeship" of Camilla. There needs to be some space for additional and more important duties which explains, at least to me, why Camilla did not work as much as the other senior Royals in her first year (again: it was her first year!) and why she did most engagements together with the prince: he knows his jobs and surely did a great job in teaching her how to do it herself.

My guess is that we'll see more of Camilla and more important duties during the next years. But this Royal watcher is already very content with what she has seen of the duchess of Cornwall!

But it is so amusing reading what funny stories come out in the press , first she is praised for her style, then she and charles are not talking then she is lazy then she does too few engagements then she is compared to diana all over again - I wonder what next? perhaps she should get pregnant or something like that other woman did - can you imagine the headlines?
