It looks like the children are out walking with their Aunty Camilla not with a member of the Royal Family. Camilla just proves how wonderful she is.

The Duchess has become a patron for a UK-wide homelessness charity.
Emmaus has a base in Glasgow and offers homeless people a new home.
The president T. Waite said:`We are so pleased to be able to welcome the Duchess of Cornwall...Her contribution will be a tremendous benefit to this charity.`

I've heard Scotland is only bearable to visit in August. Guess Charles and Camilla missed it by a month!

These are great photos. The children are gravitating towards her. She seems to have a natural ability to relate to them. Every set of photos I see of her undertaking her various duties impresses me more. She is always appropriately dressed for the occasion and smiling and seems to be really participating in what's going on and enjoying it. I think she's wonderful.

ysbel, don't believe everything you hear or read about the Scottish weather. While the rest of the UK was suffering floods, we had to water the garden every night, while they baked we enjoyed sunshine and bearable warmth. Today while most places are enduring the remnants of Hurricane Gordon, the sun is shining and I went out riding in a lightweight shirt!

"The Duchess looked happy and refreshed as she returned ahead of schedule, around two-and-a-half hours after setting off.
The Balmoral event raised just under £200,000 for the NOS, the majority of which was raised by The Duchess".

So much for the reports on other sites that said she only turned up for a photoshoot!

Poor Camilla, she never gets credit for her work.
All they could say about the whole event is the photoshoot!

Welcome Milla_ca

Camilla did a wonderful job on the hike, although I didn't expect anything less since I knew her love of walking. I love how she came in earlier then expected. :)

I didn't read some press were claiming it was a photo op. Who said it?

My only complaint was that alot of the press were in London for William's visit to the hospital. ( not complaining about the visit just that it was the same day.)

Thanks for posting the link AgnesK! Its great to see a decent write-up about Camilla for a change. She's obviously quite fit to be able to do a walk of that length (and in wet conditions too), although she has done quite a lot of walking on the estate with the Pprince, according to the article. I hope that she and her Prince both live long, healthy and happy lives!

I agree Skydragon, its a spit in the eye for those people on other sites/forums who are dismissing Camilla's excellent effort as merely a photo opportunity rather than a genuine effort for a cause close to her heart. I've just left a forum full of people with just that attitude, I can't bear narrow-mindedness.

Great pictures of Camilla walking, thanks all!
I just have great respect for the Duchess, because I highly doubt if I could walk such a distance and I'm not even half her age!
I love the picture where she's walking with all these children around her. It looks like they're all very interested in what she's saying. I wonder what they're talking about.
