Okay BeatrixFan, but children´s charities are something everyone likes to do.
And when the Duchess was pictured with a new bone scanner for the NOS it´s not such a cute pic like with a poor ill child, but the importance is the same.That´s what i mean: she should chose the patronages not because of the popularity for the people and the press!

And I agree with you. But surely one patronage helping horses is enough?

Your horses may have been scabby, but I am sure at the Scottish National Equestrian Centre, which will teach children and young adults a variety of skills involved in looking after, riding and competing, none of them will be scabby at all.

I honestly couldn't care less. Anyway, I can see that we're amongst people who consider the grooming of animals is far more important than the welfare of children and I shall retreat.

Sorry BeatrixFan, but if you really think i´m amongst these people....then maybe my english is too bad to write something you understand...?

Well, thats the impression I got and if I'm wrong then I apologise but there's certainly some people here who seem to be saying that so-called charities that teach children how to brush a horse do more important work and are more worthy of Royal patronage than charities that help abused children. And if that is what they're saying then they're entitled to their opinion but I'm entitled to say that that attitude disgusts me. Anyway, it doesn't matter and it doesn't concern me so I'll shut up and we can get back on topic.

When it gets to the point whether one charity is more worthy than another, isn't the whole point of charitable work by the royals rather lost?

After all, I would expect royals to choose charities that mean something to them as well as ones that are for a noble cause. I would much rather see a royal get involved with a charity that they really have a passion for rather than put their name to a more 'worthy' cause because its expected.

Camilla has sponsored the osteoporosis society which confronts a very dangerous illness that all women are susceptible to and she appears to have an affinity with children.

Certainly, she is allowed to have some 'fun' charities. I doubt if William's sponsorship of the FA is all that high-minded but he enjoys it and its good to see him about with young men his age who share a passion for the same thing.

If you read the article, I'm sure you will see that it will also hold workshops to teach school children a variety of skills they can take into the workplace.

I have looked back through and can't find anyone who has said that, perhaps you could point it out.

As we had quite some discussions about the journalistic value of the Mail - here are the headlines of the "most popular" stories of today:

Camilla's rubies, the Saudi prince and a very peculiar protocol

Clearly it is one of those private gifts to a member of the Royal Family which is unlikely to be 'fenced' for cash at some later date

Camilla's rubies, the Saudi prince and a very peculiar protocol | News | This is London

At least they counted the Rubies in this article - infinite number of diamonds and 37 matching rubies, reaching down delicately to settle just above Camilla's decolletage of which Charles is so proud.

I am still trying to work out why Charles is 'so proud' of the low cut neckline on her dress!

Camilla's addicted to Sudoku

Quote:
Prince Charles’s wife Camilla has revealed she is addicted to Sudoku.
The Duchess of Cornwall got sidetracked by the logic puzzle while touring a project for inner-city children in New York.
She wowed youngsters with her number grid tactics — then had to be dragged away from the game by aides who feared she was being left behind on the whirlwind royal tour.
I am a sudoku addicted myself.

She's not just a pretty face. But then, we knew that already didn't we?

By his look, I'm thinking he doesn't want anyone to see Camilla's decolletage (Ofcourse this doesn't mean he isn't proud of it )

Wow I love that necklace that Camilla is wearing, it looks so good on her. All the sparkles, the diamonds. I think I need sunglasses

I think we can not expect another report from this tabloid....
Charles received a great award for the important work he has done for so many years. That should be the headline!
I also think that all these articles in the newspaper about Camilla´s necklace are written to change the main subject of the US trip!

Rubensian

I really adore the opulent luxuriance and succulence which surrounds the Duchess. Most of the times she simply hits the perfect right notes. She would have been a dream model for the famous Flemish Master Peter Paul Rubens, known for his allegoric paintings with blossoming and creamy goddesses.

But the women Rubens liked to paint were much more stout than Camilla is. She has a good neckline, okay, but the rest is not enough for Rubens...i fear... but good for her...

The Mail is still smarting from losing the court case. They have always tried to belittle the good Charles has done and does, IMO.
