No guesses for that. She makes him happy.

I'll second that!

I thought The Dirty Mail told us that HM didn't like Camilla, guess he got that wrong as well!

I agree, I'm pleased Camilla has been awarded too - she deserves it.

I'm really proud of how far Camilla has come. She looks wonderful! I liked the photo of her Charles holding her hand in the car - they seem really happy togehter, which is lovely to see.

The more I think about it, the more I like the idea that HRH is known as The Duchess of Cornwall rather than The Princess of Wales.

There is no precedent for the wife of The Prince of Wales being known as The Duchess of Cornwall and Camilla has been able to make that title her own, and I think she is doing a simply sterling job with it. She so obviously makes her Prince happy and makes his job easier for him. I just love the photo of them lightly holding hands in the car. And she has the ability to wear serious jewels really well.

Camilla will make a very fine Queen Consort.

What a good point, Roslyn. I hadn't thought of it in a long term way. It IS a positive for her. There will probably be Princesses of Wales in the future as there have been many in the past, but for generations to come when mentioning "The Duchess of Cornwall" it won't likley be necessary to ask "Which one?" The same for Princess Consort if she IS known as that during Charles' reign (although I dearly hope it will be Queen Camilla). That could be uniquely hers as well. Thanks for causing me to think about it in such a way.

Yeah, true, like Prince Albert is the only "Prince Consort" to British history. Of course I still hope Camilla will be Queen, and I think it's the logical and easier thing. But thinking of it in this long term way, the "Princess Consort" thing wouldn't be so bad either. She'd be the only one, too true, and good point.
I like Camilla as a Duchess too. "Duchess" just suits her for some reason. I can't explain it at all, and I don't even understand it. It just fits her like a glove.

I completely agree with you, Roslyn, with the proviso that, when Camilla does eventually become Queen, that that's what she will be called, and not the very ugly and cumbersome Princess Consort.

Whats irritating is that the Daily Mail have passed this off as Camilla's RFO being the same insignia Diana had. Very annoying.

I noticed that the Daily Mail did that, also. That was obviously a ploy to stir up a little controvery to sell papers. Disgusting.
