We must be among the first one to check out the new website, Gladys!

The new website is really good, they still have to complete the final stretches but it's a big improovement. I guess it is now a website for the Family of the Prince of Wales. The previous one was mainly focused on Prince Charles only.

The only thing I don't like about it is Camilla's picture. Surely they are able to find a much better one.
Now, we need to get used to this one!

I agree, the new Prince of Wales website gives more information, shows more pics and a good thing is, that you can search easily for persons and events.
And i agree, that it is much more a Wales-Family-Site now. I also like the new modern style. So, well done!
My only problem is that after so many years with the old PoW website, i need some time to get used to the new one...

I really like the new web-site. Very extensive and lots of nice photos. And the pics of Camilla aren´t so bad I think.

Most of the pictures are really great. I just don't like the front page ones, but maybe it's just me.

The website is well done! While there is all sorts of notable content, there is one particularly interesting quote on Camilla's Biography here

"It is intended that The Duchess of Cornwall will use the title HRH The Princess Consort when The Prince of Wales accedes to The Throne."


Has there ever been such a clear statement about what Camilla's title will be in the future?

Nope. They tried the Princess Consort thing but as soon as we all realised it'd be illegal, they layed off of it a little bit.

I really enjoyed the video. I hope they'll continue to put video of engagements on the site.

I enjoy the new official website and the interface is user friendly and looks very fresh and active. I am going to explore it!

That is possible, but I don't agree (respectively)

It it is clear that the statement has not been retracted which could have quite easily been done during the re-development process.

As for 'they tried', that implies it has since been rejected which is not entirely the case as far as we (the public) are aware. It is intended, and until such a time as it is confirmed that HRH the Duchess of Cornwall cannot assume the style and title of Princess Consort under any legality, then the proposed alternative stands.

The new website is really very fresh in appearance and quite user friendly. It seems to me very 'organic' in its layout and I like that.

To call her anything but the Queen when the day comes is disrespectful toward the King (Charles) and the institution of the Monarchy. If she isn't worthy of being the Queen then the marriage should have been stopped. But it wasn't and now she is the wife of the man that is expected to become the King when his mother dies.

I think they want to avoid a public dicussion about Camilla´s future title now. And i agree. Let the time play for her.
Her popularity grows more and more and with it the acceptance of the people and the possibility to give her the position she is entitled to: to be the next Queen.
We all know that the last word about it is not spoken.

Your opinion and you are most welcome to it I, however, do not agree.

Does anyone know how long it takes to update a website like that of the POW? I can't imagine it would have been too long in the process.

Prince unveils online vidio diary

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/6166726.stm

The Prince of Wales´ website has been revamped to include a vidio charting a day in his life and that of his wife.

Today in the media and press (Telegragh, Times...) are many reports about the new PoW website and the vidio.
Very good, to hear such a positive echo!

Interesting what The Prince of Wales' webpage says about Camilla's Coat of Arms:

"This is the same single arched Coronet that is used to surmount The Duchess’s shield and is used because, as wife to the Heir Apparent, she is entitled to it according to the Royal Warrant of King Charles II, dated 9th February 1661."

As wife of the Heir Apparent, she is entitled to use the second highest ranking Coronet. I'm sure her Coat of Arms will be changed the moment The Prince becomes the king and will show the Coronet of the Queen Consort. Sometimes symbols speak louder than words. The usage of this Coronet says: there is no morganatic marriage, thus Camilla is the wife and has a right to all historical trappings of the wife of the Heir Apparent. And that says of course of the future: one day she will have the right to all the historical trappings of the Queen Consort. Including a coronation, if one is traditional for the Queen Consort.

And what a Coronation it shall be (not for some years yet).

I do hope Charles keeps much of the pomp and circumstance surrounding the service itself. Sure, if he wishes to wear a naval uniform let him but everything else (I hope) stays much the same. Afterall, a coronation is a revered tradition (both religously and otherwise) and it is a service which, I believe, need not be altered in its display

Hmm, my thoughts on the website are mixed.

Its a very impressive layout and very well organized. I agree with the others that the new focus on the family is particularly nice.

But...and maybe I'm being a stick in the mud. It looks too much like a normal news site or the home page of one of the photo agencies like Corbis or Getty.

Everything is nicely arranged and easy to find; the only thing its missing is a little atmosphere, a sort of royal magic.

Maybe I'm being too picky though, it is very well done.

I was looking at Camilla's Coat of Arms yesterday myself and I was disappointed that it did not discuss the significance of the boar and her family's symbols.
