The quote has been made up, presumably because it is considered more 'amusing' than the reality that she apparently commented on what a fine polo pony he was riding. Camilla herself denied the comment c.2005 when she was asked by the biographer and media commentator Gyles Brandreth - but he chose to ignore it, probably because nowadays journalists can't be bothered to do any research and prefer to put together a whole string of previous press cuttings as Jonathan Dimbleby discovered. Incidentally she also denied that she first met Prince Charles in 1970 at Windsor Great Park, which tends to suggest that my preferred date of meeting in May/June 1972 when the Prince was on a naval course only a few miles from Camilla's grandmother's house in Hampshire is probably nearer the mark.

I never heard or read the suggestion of their having met at Windsor. Reading between the lines of Dimbleby's account, I assumed (perhaps wrongly) they met at Broadlands, which happens to be in Hampshire, so maybe it accords with your view.

The Dowager Duchess of Devonshire (Deborah) told James Lees Milne, Charles and Camilla met at Chatsworth. It was in his book "Ceaseless Turmoil". I have always believed it since she are good friends with them.

I think Milne is the famous diarist. Where is Chatsworth in relation to Portsmouth and what year would this have been?

Chatsworth is in the High Peak, Derbyshire. The distance between the two is approx 226 - 250 miles and takes approx 4 to 5 hours depending on traffic(). Portsmouth is in the far South of the country, Derbyshire is just above the Midlands.

I agree that the first time Charles and Camilla met was around 1972 summer. I still think the formal introducer was Lucia Santa Cruz who was Charles' unversity girlfriend. Either a party or the polo ground or any other occasion, I have no certain idea.

Camilla's great grandmother, Alice Keppel, was a mistress of Edward VII. The story goes that Camilla used that pick-up line when she first met Charles and that he was quite amused.

Assuming it was ever said and isn't just an urban myth.

You really don't care for her much at all do you? Or if I am ill informed, then by all means correct me.

She seems perfectly lovely to me. But that's just me...

Actually if it did occur in that sense, I see the quip being said by a person that would make a person feel at ease at first meeting. No curtsy and "your highness" or giggles but a straight faced quip. I am willing to bet that this was an icebreaker that would have brought giggles to both of their faces at the time.
