10 mile walk... Hope the Duchess will make it! Ro even better, hope she wins it, though it hardly matters with Charity Walk.

Considering Camilla's love of long walks, this is perfect charity event for her. It is so nice she can do someone she really enjoys with her charity work.
If she wasn't the one who suggested the walk in the first place, I am sure she jumped at the idea when it was suggested. :)
I do agree it will be interesting in what she decides to wear.

She probably be wearing sport clothes suitable for power walks.


It's not that exciting.

I suspect she'll be wearing something sensible and comfortable.

For some odd reason I'll be interested to know the colour though.

Is the "mile" the same distance as a mile in the US? I though all of Europe used kilometers.

Yes we are the same as the US, we don't use kilometres to measure road distance.

We do use some metric for measurements ie. a piece of wood can be 1 metre long by 1 inch wide! 2 metres of fabric that is 36 inches wide. I think for anything other than road distance, it depends on your age, the youngsters using metric, the oldies imperial.

A mile is 5,280 feet. That is about 1.6 kilometers.

Can you imagine asking for 0.568 of a litre of beer or worse still 0.9144 of a metre of cider (1 yard)!

I can. What I can't imagine is a facial expression of a waiter after such order

I agree with some of you on her dress from last night, not her best IMO, but today the Duchess shows us once again that she has great taste in suits and hats.

Camilla and Charles arrive at St Paul's Church in London for a memorial service for her father Maj. Bruce Shand today. AP Photo/Sang Tan/Pool via Yahoo.

Its a little less than half a marathon so at a walkings pace its definitely doable. :)

the duchess looks very lovely and dignified, great hat on her.
this has been bothering me for a while now, don't you think the duchess needs to find a firmer undergarmet (bra) she has a lovely figure but the top is too ummmmmm low. there are some wonderful, COMFORTABLE bras out there. my aunt (she's 73)went to neimans and got a new bra fitted (come to find out she'd been wearing the wrong size, etc) came to the reunion and everyone swore she'd had a boobjob. it was the hoot of the party who knew! anyway i mean no criticism it was just an idea to throw out there.

CAMILLA REMEMBERS HER WAR HERO FATHER WITH PRIDE

The Duchess of Cornwall had a warm smile for family and friends arriving to help celebrate the life of her beloved father Major Bruce Shand on Monday. Elegantly dressed in black, flanked by her husband the Prince of Wales, Camilla welcomed 550 guests to the private memorial service in St Paul's Church in London.
