Yes, but now it seems like he will be doing much more, especially on an international level. The Queen is getting up there in age, it makes sense for her not to want to do too much strenuous work.

Lovely lovely! It's great to finally see them side by side at official things as a married couple and nothing else! :) I'm sure they will be a great working couple, I wish them all the luck. One thing though - perhaps the Duchess should consider doing something with her hair?

Oh, and love your avatar wymanda!

Is this the only outfit the Duchess packed? Isn't it the same one she was wearing when she arrived in Scotland and the same one she wore to church last Sunday?

Hm, I don't think so...I think it's just the photos. What does everyone else think? I know the Duchess is no clothes horse, but it would seem odd to wear one outfit publicly three times in a week.

You're right, it is the same outfit. I, too, was surprised to see it on her again. It's not a regular coat like you and I would wear on an everyday basis; it's a coat-dress.

Newlyweds in first royal engagement
(Filed: 14/04/2005) The Prince of Wales and his new wife the Duchess of Cornwall have taken time out from their honeymoon to attend their first royal engagement since getting married.

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of CornwallThe royal couple, who are known as the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay in Scotland, were met with cheering crowds as they arrived to open a play park at MonaTRFie Park in Ballater, Aberdeenshire.

Camilla, who was wearing a pink coat with Rothesay tartan trim and shawl which she had already worn on her two previous public appearances this week in Scotland, and Charles, wearing traditional Highland dress with Balmoral tartan, were welcomed by hundreds of members of the public, including some of the 120 children from the local primary school.

The couple have been honeymooning at Birkhall on the Balmoral estate since their wedding last Saturday.

Camilla's coat, created by designer Roy Allen, was first seen at Aberdeen Airport when the couple arrived at the start of their honeymoon, and she wore it again at Crathie Church the following day.

The couple were met by sisters Kerry and Gemma Sinclair, who presented Camilla with a bouquet of white roses and freesias, and gave the Prince a card congratulating him on his wedding.

Camilla, with Charles at her side, then cut a tartan ribbon to officially open the play park, using a pair of gold-plated scissors ordered for the occasion from a London jeweller.

The royal couple stopped and talked with members of local fundraising group the Charitable Chiels, who raised 25,000 towards the 43,000 play park.

They also spoke to some of the children from the local primary school, who rushed into the park to play as the Duchess cut the ribbon.

Charles joked with the youngsters who were sitting in a swinging basket, asking them, "How high does it go?"

Charles and Camilla also met local dignitaries including Lord Lieutenant of Aberdeenshire Angus Farquharson.

Just before they left, some wellwishers began an impromptu performance of the Cliff Richard song Congratulations and a rendition of For They Are Jolly Good Fellows, which led to smiles and waves from the royal couple.

Well, at least of all the things Camilla is and will be accused of, the one thing she can't be accused of is being a clothes horse or that now that she's married Charles she's spending like mad on her wardrobe!

Like with any of the princesses, while I do appreciate that they recycle their clothes, I don't care for it when they repeat their outfits too close together. I wonder though, in this particular case, as it is still Camilla and Charle's honeymoon, if she simply didn't pack very much in the way of a working wardrobe as they were supposed to be on holiday. I would think that this is an event that would've been planned so certainly not unexpected so that Camilla could've prepared a new outfit but it's still a possibility.

I don't think it's unroyal to repeat your clothes, either. Camilla's own mother-in-law, the Queen repeats her clothes quite often, as do Letizia and Victoria. Camilla shouldn't be judged by a different rule.

When I was watching the wedding last weekend I heard a few of the reporters mention that Camilla doesnt want to have a very active royal role, that she'd prefer to remain behind the scenes and let her husband do most of the work.
But I was thinking that she may not have a choice in this matter, especially if the Queen wants Charles and Camilla to take on more of her own duties, international visits in particular.
But I suppose Camilla wont mind going on overseas trips as much. I think she's more nervous appearing at public events at home. Well, so far.
Im sure she'll get more comfortable in her role as time goes on.

I have to say, Charles looks so happy and relaxed with her.

Regarding the complaints of Camilla wearing the same outfit twice: is that her COAT or an actual dress?

gosh. the same coat in the very same week, that's definately a record. As a commoner, even I would not be caught dead in the same distinct coat three times in less than a week, much less if I was in the public spotlight.

I think that Camilla probably should have given the press a benefit of the doubt and realize that they would have noticed something if she was wearing the same coat continiously, esp. considering the fact that the spotlight is shining brightly on her, after getting married less than a week ago. :-P

of course she knew they would notice. she is sending a message, she does not give a d***, she will be able to change a bit but not too much, she is the way she is and that is the way things are.
