Let's not forget endometriosis, an extremely painful and debilitating condition, and I am sure there are other sound reasons.
Whatever the reason, good luck and good health to her.

My friend is herself a consultant and assures us all, if the op is done correctly, there is very little danger of 'your tripes falling out'! Goodness, they even have you out of bed and climbing stairs within 3 days of having a triple bypass!

It seems to be done a lot over here purely because of very heavy periods, especially in later life. Most of the women I know who have had it done, it was because their period was 28 days on 3 days off and they all had 'natural' births.

I don´t think that Camilla cancelled her duties for six weeks because she´s afraid of being sick, or to have to rest, all the time. She will need maybe three weeks if everything will go well (i hope so) before she can start her normal life again. But she does not have an ´normal job´ to do. When she´s back to duty, everybody will ask her about her condition, the journalists will start to speculate about her health...we know that. And so she will need some more time, maybe to get strong enough to face the public.
And it is better to say before the op, that she will be out of engagements for six weeks, as if to cancel some duties later again, if there are unexpected problemes.
If the surgery take part the week after the Royal Couple is back from the Middle East trip, Camilla will start to go public the week after Easter.
So maybe she will have a break for four weeks and then two weeks Easter holidays.
I know that it is only routine op, but it is a major one, and she has all my best wishes and sympathy!

Nor do I milla Ca, times change and most doctors now insist on a 6 week 'rest', in fact you are not insured to drive your car on public roads during this period. She will be given exercises to do, that will help in her full recovery, during this rest period.

Some women take longer to recover than others and Camilla, because of her position, will have to do it all by the book. It may still be a serious op, but to a lot of hospitals it is as routine as an appendectomy or cesarean section. Although one woman I know is still 'resting' 6 months later!

Since Camilla's not a "Woman in Business", maybe she's taking on a support-hosting role at the reception.

Royal date for top businesswomen

icWales - Royal date for top businesswomen

It is believed to be the first time Camilla has supported the Queen in her own right since becoming a member of the Royal Family.

The next sentence is interesting as well:
"There will be interest as to whether it is Camilla or Anne who takes up the prime position at the Queen's side for the meet-and-greet line up."

Of course there will be interest, at least here on this forum....

In terms of Royal Precedence that's already been decided. Anne comes before Camilla. But yes, it will be interesting to see if these formalities are observed.

Why I feel sorry for the Duchess

There are many embarrassing stigmas attched to having a hysterectomy, says Cassandra Jardine, but the procedure is far less alarming than it used to be.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/core/Cont...&site=4&page=0

A duchess confesses

Camilla Parker Bowles ´s revelation that she is to have a hysterectomy lays bare our craven nosiness.

Guardian Unlimited | Comment is free | A duchess confesses

Two different ways to comment the open statement of Clarence House that the Duchess will have a hysterectomy.
I think the names of the newspaper stand for their opinion...
And please tell me, who is Camilla Parker Bowles, i can not remember the name?

I don't see why there is anything embarrassing attached for Camilla to have this procedure done. Its not like she's 20 and the tabloids will say Prince Charle's wife won't be able to have children. She past the stigma stages I think. I think she's at a stage in her life where, if it will improve her health or her lifestyle than its a good thing. I don't see why any of the stigmas should relate to her at all.

The procedure has become very advanced and much safer for women now. i just hope all goes well for her and her surgery.

The 1st article states "I was off work for six weeks - the same length of time as the Duchess will be relieved of her public duties - but I (I can now admit) was in perfectly good form within a week and enjoyed what amounted to a holiday. The one really important piece of advice is not to lift heavy objects for fear of re-opening the wound - so, although the Duchess should soon be able to ride again, she will need others to heave her saddles around for rather longer".

There you go most of her worries alleviated, she will be able to go out riding pretty quickly, (I suggest she uses the mounting block). It seems an informed article from someone who has had the procedure.

Why the other paper wants to believe that everyone whispers the word, is beyond me, perhaps their journalist needs to grow up and talk to men and women in the real world.

Iceflower in her post (see 'Group Picture') has answered this pressing question.
The line-up was: HM, Anne, Camilla, Sophie and the Duchess of Gloucester; ie the Queen's pecking order.

HM Queen Elizabeth II has come up with a solution worthy of 'Solomon'. I don't think she could have pulled it off if Princess Anne was just royal born.

The Princess Royal is an additional title, earned by a lifetime of sheer hard work, and, if the photo's of the central cast of this little soap opera are anything to go by, it really works. The Princess Royal keeps the status she was born for ( and I don't mean 'princess'). Camilla is only the wife of the heir at present and is second in precedence.

More importantly, the photo's give a really good sense of the relationship all these women have with each other, and contrary to what the press would have us believe, they are all relaxed, happy and obviously enjoying themselves.

The Queen even looks like she's been up to something with that wonderful grin on her face. Could that have been the reason Anne and Camilla were cracking up?

I just hope that she's going to be okay.If the reasons behind the hysterectomy were cancer related,wouldn't the surgery be done quickly?

Although I didn't buy the tabloid (or even look in it), last week I saw a cover stating that Charles couldn't bear Camilla's looks and that she was having a $100,000 face lift. Perhaps some of the official information we're getting is an attempt to dispel that rumor (or other rumors we could concoct if Camilla disappears for a few weeks).

I was pretty surprised that this would be officially announced (I think this falls into the category of "none of my business").

Best wishes for a speedy recovery to Camilla.

Did you see it on the cover of a german tabloid?
Here you can read stupid things like that every week. My advice: Ignore it, shut your eyes when you see yellow press magazines. Get your infos from serious sources and in The Royal Forums...

The American tabloids IMO seem to print the exact opposite of what is mostly like going on. I read the British papers etc, and I just laugh when I see those headlines. I've moved past wanting to bang my head in frustration :)
Remember Diana stills sells very well here in America and a lot of the Diana crowd hate Camilla. Those tabs just feed that crowds yearning that Camilla is and makes others miserable.
Besides when was the last time happy marriages and happy families sell papers?
