Camilla must have more new clothes than she knows what to do with, if stories are true about her previously casual approach to her outfits. She's been looking very nice recently.

i got news from Hello Magazine check it out! 23 MAY 2005
A smiling Duchess of Cornwall was in the pink on Monday as she embarked on her first solo official engagement as a member of the Royal Family.

The event, the opening of an epidemiology resource centre at Southampton General Hospital, was Camilla's debut without the Prince of Wales at her side. Wearing one of her favourite rose hues, Camilla, President of the National Osteoporosis Society, also toured a unit dedicated to the debilitating bone disease.

Meanwhile, the weekend also saw other members of the Royal Family out and about, with the Wessexes getting into the swim of things at the Splash Ball held at the River and Rowing Museum in Henley On Thames. In line with the maritime theme of the fundraiser, elegant Sophie chose a striking blue fishtail gown and matching aquamarine jewels for the occasion.

An ocean away, also feeling the style "blues" was Queen Elizabeth II, who wore the regal colour during a visit St Mary's and St George Anglican Church in Jasper, Alberta, Canada.

Canada's symbolic head of state, the Queen kicked off her nine-day tour of the North American country last week.

according to the website of the daily telegraph, lesley thomas writes:

"The Duchess of Cornwall, most agreed, looked particularly radiant on her wedding day. I am told it is thanks to judicious use of a peachy-coloured, slightly shimmering unguent called Skinlights Face Illuminator by Revlon (£9.95; 0800 085 2716). I tried it a few weeks ago and it has become a product I don't want to live without. Mix it with your foundation and, pow!, you will look like a fairytale princess - sort of."

Kiss for girl who says Camilla will be 'a lovely Queen'
By Stewart Payne
(Filed: 24/05/2005)

The Duchess of Cornwall undertook her first solo engagement since becoming a member of the Royal Family when she opened a medical research centre yesterday.

The Duchess received several posies during her visit
Camilla, dressed in pink, visited Southampton General Hospital, Hants, in her capacity as president of the National Osteoporosis Society.

During her visit she received several posies, including one from two-year-old Emily Forrester, from Southampton, who ran up to the duchess, gave her the posy and ran back to her mother before deciding to return and give the duchess a kiss. The card with the flowers said: "We think you will be a lovely Queen!"

It was the duchess's first solo engagement since she married the Prince of Wales last month.

She met staff taking part in an award-winning study comparing medieval bones with those of modern women; visited the Southampton Women's Survey, the largest study of women's lifestyle and childhood development in Britain; and opened the University of Southampton's Epidemiology Resource Centre.

YOU'LL BE A LOVELY QUEEN
CAMILLA'S BOUQUET NOTE FROM EMILY, 2
By Nathan Yates
CAMILLA went on her first solo royal engagement yesterday - with a kiss of approval from a two-year-old fan.

Emily Forrester gave the Duchess of Cornwall a bouquet containing pink roses and a card reading: "We think you will be a lovely Queen."

The shy youngster then fled but returned to give her a kiss.

Camilla told her: "Thank you very much. That's very brave of you."

Emily's mum Sarah, 39, said: "We came to give her our support because it's her first public appearance on her own."

Sarah, who picked the flowers to complement Camilla's pink outfit, added: "She's made Charles very happy and a happy king is a good king.

"I think Camilla would make a good Queen - and I think she will be Queen one day." They were among well-wishers who cheered as the newest royal arrived at Southampton Hospital.

Camilla was on a two-hour visit in her role as president of bone disease charity the National Osteoporosis Society.

She has supported the organisation since her mum Rosalind Shand died of the disease in 1994, aged 72.

Professor Cyrus Cooper presented the Duchess with a painting.

Referring to her wedding, he joked to laughter: "Your circumstances have changed somewhat since April 9.

"We would like to give you a token of our appreciation and wish you many happy years with His Royal Highness."

Camilla also met experts carrying out a study that has found medieval women had stronger bones than those of today. Clarence House insisted the Duchess had not been nervous about her first outing without Charles.

A spokesman said: "This is one of 20 hospital visits she has undertaken as president of the National Osteoporosis Society."

Duchess of Cornwall Makes Solo Outing


Mon May 23, 1:30 PM ET



LONDON - The Duchess of Cornwall, the former Camilla Parker Bowles, opened a new medical research center Monday, her first solo outing since marrying into the royal family last month.

Parker Bowles, who married Prince Charles on April 9, visited the Southampton General Hospital in southwest England in her capacity as president of the National Osteoporosis Society.

"This is one of 20 hospital visits she has undertaken as president of the National Osteoporosis Society," said a spokesman for the couple's Clarence House office.

During her two-hour visit, the duchess met staff participating in a study that compares medieval women's bones with those of modern women.

Clinical technologist Alison Chumley told the duchess that medieval hip bones of women found in northern England were stronger than modern women's bones, possibly because our medieval ancestors consumed more calcium, did more physical activity and had no access to tobacco.

The duchess also heard that a two-year study had shown a cream containing natural progesterone, a female hormone, does not protect against osteopororis in post-menopausal women.

The duchess's mother, Rosalind Shand, died in 1994 from osteoporosis, a bone-thinning disease that attacks primarily women.

The duchess also opened the new premises of the University of Southampton's Epidemiology Resource Center, which for 20 years has been a world leader in studying the early origins of adult disease.

While the UK seems divided over The Duchess of Cornwall's possible future role as monarch, one little fan and her sister made it clear she had no such doubts.

As Camilla undertook her first solo official outing at Southampton General Hospital, two-year-old Emily Forrester presented her with a card attached to a posy, which read: "We think you will be a lovely Queen!"

While the Duchess was obviously touched by the gesture, saying "Oh thank you. That’s very brave," Emily suddenly seemed overcome by her own daring and raced back to her mum. She then had a change of heart, however, and returned to bestow a kiss on the royal visitor's cheek.

Camilla, who was making her first appearance in public without Prince Charles since her wedding, was present in her role as president of the National Osteoporosis Society. Her mother, Rosalind Shand, lost her battle with the disease in 1994.

Having delivered her message, two-year-old Emily pops back for a quick kiss from The Duchess

I'll admit that I'm not the biggest fan of Camilla, (please don't yell at me for that) but she has been taking on her new role very well...and I think she has better fashion sense now (yet again, please no yelling). (Oh and I agree, Sophie looked wonderful in the blue dress, good fashion choice, IMHO)

Charles will attack Prescott's plans<A class=LargeBody>PRINCE: SAVE OLD HOUSEShttp://The Prince of Wales is set to....<br /> <br />In a speech to the Institute of Chartered Accountants, Prince Charles will say it would be cheaper to redevelop the 400,000 properties in the North and Midlands.

The heir to the throne will say: "Old, historic, characterful buildings are knocked down, even though in the longer term it would cost far less in financial, social and environmental terms to refurbish and convert them to other uses, such as residential and mixed use."

But the Prince's spokesman claimed that the speech would concentrate on environmental sustainability: "This is not about housing policy. It's nothing to do with demolishing homes."

The speech coincides with an announcement by Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott over plans to replace the old housing stock with 200,000 new homes to be built this year - the highest rate since the 1990s.

Chancellor Gordon Brown also revealed plans to release 14 square miles of public sector land for development - equivalent to 6150 football pitches.

It is not Charles' first comments on government policy.

He famously offered the Prime Minister advice during the Foot and Mouth crisis in 2001.

CHARLES IN HOMES PLEA
PRINCE Charles is to clash with Deputy PM John Prescott over plans to demolish hundreds of thousands of Victorian homes in the North and the Midlands to make way for new properties.

He will tell the Institute of Chartered Accountants in a speech: "It would cost far less to convert these historic buildings to other uses."

Charles knocks down Prescott's demolition plan
By Charles Clover
(Filed: 26/05/2005)

The Prince of Wales last night launched what was seen as an attack on Government plans to demolish up to 400,000 homes in the Midlands and the North.

He said it was wrong to demolish old buildings where they could be restored more economically.

Prince Charles prefers restoration to demolitionAlthough Clarence House insisted his remarks were not aimed at Government policy, they were interpreted as registering disapproval of John Prescott's plan to knock down thousands of terrace houses to make way for new homes.

The prince said: "Old, historic, characterful buildings are knocked down, even though in the longer term it would cost far less in financial, social and environmental terms to refurbish and convert them."

His remarks, in a speech to the Institute of Chartered Accountants, follow those of Ringo Starr, who questioned the demolition of 20,000 homes in Merseyside, including his birthplace in Madryn Street, Toxteth.

"Why are they knocking them down?" he asked The Daily Telegraph. "If it is economically viable, they should be doing them up."

Though Starr said it was "up to them" - meaning the city of Liverpool - because he had not lived there for so long, Mr Prescott appeared touchy on the subject when interviewed by ITV yesterday.

"I notice he's not living in the house and he's not living in Liverpool," he said. "We have to meet the needs of Liverpool people today, not people living in London."

Mr Prescott denied that Starr's birthplace was in the demolition zone - though it is. Yvette Cooper, the housing minister, insisted that such decisions were made locally, but in some cases demolition was the only realistic option.

"The vast majority of investment is going to refurbish homes as this can make a real difference to communities," she said. "However, some areas have tried refurbishment before and still homes are left empty and not enough people want to live there."

It became clear yesterday that Liverpool councillors had asked the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister several times to restore more homes instead of knocking them down.

Flo Clucas, an executive member of the Liberal Democrat-controlled council responsible for housing, said in an e-mail to residents: "We have repeatedly asked his [Mr Prescott's] office to enable us to increase the number of properties that can be refurbished, where we believe there is a market for them."

Prince Charles went to university where he got a degree in history, and then he went into the Royal Navy for five or six years. He's been doing royal duties full-time since leaving the Navy in 1976.
