Simply wonderful. Well done Camilla! I wonder if we'll see a video of it anywhere. I would like to hear HRH giving her speech.

Thank you for the articles and pictures everyone.
The Duchess looked wonderful.

What I like most about her choices of outftis, is how she chooses very appropirate cloths for the events. Jo pointed a while ago her choice of whie and green, in historic contest.

Today she opted for a white knee-length dress and navy jacket with navy court shoes and a string of pearls, and white hat with a navy band and white feathers. A true wife of an Admiral!

The BBC really are thick. Instead of a video showing us the actual launch, we had some silly bint reading a press release describing the launch in front of the submarine! Come on BBC, show us HRH launching the thing.

Exactly what I feel. This video is a bad joke.

Beatrixfan and Hornsen, I was as disappointed as you with the BBC's video, had hoped for some footage of Camilla too. It was such a great event, I would have loved to see a glimpse of it.

Camilla 'never wanted to marry Charles'

The Duchess of Cornwall never wanted to marry Prince Charles, according to a new book on the life of Diana, Princess of Wales.

One of these books nobody needs, i think!

( I read in the ´Diana thread´, that it is a better book than many others, because the author did research more seriously and also that she tried to interview some knowing people.
Okay, i see, but do we really need another Diana book? Do we need more `facts` about Charles and Camilla with no evidence for them? I say: NO!)

Yawn...Ok, a little concession to this lady. Camilla didn´t want to marry Charles during his marriage to Diana. Because she never saw a little chance to change the situation and lived her life (with Charles).IMO
And the rest of the story we know. And beside that, after Charles proposed she said, it was the happiest day of her life and she is just coming down to earth.

I don't regard Richard Parker Bowles as a very reliable source. He knew something but not the whole truth. I doubt that Camilla would ever discuss the depth of her feeling towards Charles.

Think so, too. And if, she would do it with her sister at most I think. And her sister isn´t saying a word.

I must say that, overall, since the famous wedding day in Windsor, the Duchess of Cornwall has positively surprised me with her goodnatured, accessible and charmant appearance.

I think the Duchess definitely rose to the challenge. It's probably not the life she would have envisioned for herself as a young woman, after everything, she loves Charles, and it is what she must do, and she accepts the good and the bad, for better or worse, and "gets on with it", true to Princess Anne/Prince Philip style. I like how she presents herself too. While she cannot be called meek exactly, she is able to be her own person without overshadowing the Prince. I like that. I think it shows how healthy their relationship is, that they can be individuals, but they never step on each other or cramp the other's style. They have such a natural, perfect compatibility that sadly Diana and Charles never had.

Very true, very true. They waited all those years to be happy as they are now, true to most great literary love stories where love creates a beautiful agony and much tragedy happens before they can happy. They really are a great story. I am happy they have finally found their way to each other and are as happy as they are now.
