Cleopatra bathed in ass's milk didn't she? I can just imagine HRH laying in a bath of goat's milk, rubies on, glass of vino in hand. Or was that me last Saturday?

I like goat´s cheese very much, but i also know the odour smell of goat´s milk. So if the Duchess or you BeatrixFan have a bath in the milk, you should cancel all your dates for the day after that ...

I forgot about the smell, perhaps not a good idea for Camilla to bathe in it!

Actually, its only commercially produced goats milk that has an "odour" and a strong taste. Milk from organically fed goats tastes, & smells, no different to cows milk. To give you an example, when we had our goat she was fed no processed feed. My Dad was a bit funny about the milk and kept saying "When can we have some proper milk"! As a test, we got a commercial milk carton & put the goats milk in it. His comment, "Now thats real milk" He couldn't tell the difference.

Not strictly true, it depends what they eat to some extent. Our British Saanens are allowed free grazing in a 5 acre field and sometimes the milk can really smell or taste of whatever they have been eating (wild garlic on occasion). Perhaps there is a difference in the goats in the various countries, as the milk produced from our goats definitly tastes and smells 'different' to cows milk.
Whatever the differences are, I hope Charles and Camilla enjoy their ice cream.

Thank you for the information Wymanda and Skydragon!
I really would like to taste the goat´s milk ice cream, but i think my chance to be invited for a dinner at Highgrove is not the best...so i should try try to buy some.

Thank you for the article milla Ca!

And here are the pictures.
Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall rides in a newly-modified Bulldog armored personnel carrier during a visit to the 4th Battalion of the newly-formed Rifles Regiment at the battalion's barracks at Bulford, on Salisbury Plain. Braving the chill on Salisbury Plain, Camilla was visiting the battalion's barracks, ahead of their tour to Iraq in May. During her visit, Camilla was driven in a newly-modified Bulldog armored personnel carrier. It is understood she either did not notice or chose to ignore the word "bollocks", believed to have been written by a mischievous soldier, in the layer of dust covering the vehicle.

From Lieut Colonel Sanders (no chicken noises please);

"It is a huge honour to have The Duchess as our Royal Colonel. Each battalion of the Rifles gets its own Royal Colonel and we think we have struck gold. She is so interested in what we are doing. She has got such a fantastic touch with everyone in the regiment - the families, the children and the men."

Here here Colonel. Here here.

Thanks for the quote Beatrixfan.
It's so great to hear that what the Duchess does is so much appreciated and that she is so much involved with the regiment and is in touch with everything.

And two more Galleries of pictures:

A very sad day for the regiments! The 4th Rifles do at least have Camilla. They were lucky to get a visit 6 days after they came into existence and she became their Royal Colonel. Pictures from polfoto.

Girls just wanna have fun

TWO

THREE

FOUR

ONE FOR THE ALBUM

One day I'm sure we will see HRH in a uniform. Queen Sirikit always looks very classy in her uniform and she's older than Camilla so age isn't a factor. I think she'd look very glam in a uniform.

Although it was an official visit, it was not a parade with an inspection, so no uniform, no speeches. Perhaps next time!

In the picture galleries is seen the word "bollock" on a vehicle and said that Camilla did ignore it. Can´t find any translation about it. What does it mean?

And for those unsure in English, it's an offensive word for the testicles.

There are two meanings, both explained here, only the one is considered mildly 'rude'. It is often used in a context of disbelief, ie. as if I am going to believe that or lier.

Another that explains here

Silly me! Here I am trying to multi-task by checking (and responding) to my email while preparing dinner, so I just pushed print.

I can now saw that I am fully conversant with the many and varied uses and euphenisms of the word 'bollocks'!

Whew, just what I needed!
