Ive seen pix of the front page of the Globe and that is definitely anti-Camilla.

This is so funny

Wrong.
The Globe has it's weekly front page cover of anti-Camilla. The other tabloids have several covers a year.

Last week was the first time I actually saw a hard copy of the Globe. It was at Walgreen's. I was extremely disappointed that Walgreen's carried this rag.

Are you under the impression that the Globe or the National Enquirer is the same as the New York Times? You can't compare the 'front page' ;which Queen Camilla I would hope you are aware of.

I don't want to hear about the 70's, the 80's, the 90's, or the years between the death and the wedding. I want to hear about Camilla's time as The Duchess of Cornwall, because that is what this thread is about. She has been an exemplary representitive of The British Royal Family, and will be a wonderful Consort. You can hold the view that she was the only problem Diana ever had, for all I care, but your assertion that her warmth and work ethic haven't won you over can't go without elaboration.
Apparently you ARE willing to 'debate the soap opera'.

I googled "the Globe covers," went to images and found covers with the following headlines:

"Charles flees raging Camilla: 'I'm a battered husband,' he sobs" with the add on "$250m divorce back on!"

"Queen dying!
•Sick and fading fast - what's wrong!
•Camilla's evil plot to seize Throne
•What will happen to William & Kate?"

"Cam and Kate wedding disaster
•Shocking rehab drama
•Camilla's ugly fight with bride"

"Bitter palace showdown: Kate wins!: Go to hell, she tells Camilla"

"Evil Camilla renews bitter battle for Throne"

"Royal family split: William orders Charles: 'Keep evil Camilla away from Kate!'" with the add on "Charles rages 'Kate must respect Camilla!'"

"It's official! Queen Kate!: Why this photo destroyed evil Camilla's dream"

"Boozing Camilla breaks down"

"After a bitter fight with Kate Camilla storms out!: She's fleeing to America and demanding $20 million home here" plus "She won't accept Kate as Queen"

And, the royal baby exclusive, "Cruel Camilla humiliates grandpa Charles"

That's just the front page headlines from one American magazine in one quick google search (I spent more time typing out the headlines than looking for them).

I recently heard of an article talking about how Camilla won the publics heart. Also there are frequent articles when she and Charles go to events and on tours. It is not a lot but they do pop up. The media is agist and shallow; Camilla and Charles are old and unattractive so they aren't focused on much by the media. But when they are it doesn't seem negative.

None of the royals are covered much in the reputable papers or media in the U.S. - except for the current Georgemania, and before that the royal wedding, and the Harry in Vegas thing. In the U.S. we don't, as a collective, see the royals as anything but celebrities, therefore we only hear about them when they cause sensations. Our "information" about Camilla comes from the tabloids.

Probably the last time the reputable media reported on Camilla was when she lost her brother, and this most likely was due to the fact that he died in New York.

Is the Globe an American publication? I thought it was a Murdoch tabloid that was only distributed in the U.S., not published here? Maybe I've got it confused.

Anyway, Australian born Murdoch is a virulent Republican. His contempt for the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall comes through loud and clear. But in American rags like the Enquirer, US magazine, and People, the coverage of Camilla(when it exists at all, as COUNTESS pointed out she is pretty much ignored here) is pretty even.

Most of the ink goes to William/Kate/George/Harry.

This isn't a comparison though. You and Countess are claiming that there is no coverage of Camilla at all. We've provided evidence that that simply isn't true. The tabloids are covering her regularly, and typically from an anti-Camilla stance. I wouldn't be surprised if other papers covered her when she's in the US or even in Canada, but I'd have to do more of a search for it.

Those are not tabloids in my opinion. I didn't even know the Globe existed. I knew of the National Enquirer, but always thought it was a joke to entertain people. Years ago it said Saadam Hussien retired in New Jersey and I noticed that when checking out of the supermarket and laughed. How can you call this crap coverage? I never saw anyone buy one, but they must. The New York Post is what I call a tabloid. I have no idea what they do either. But they are a newspaper. This coverage here is not really noticed. If she went door to door in most places, no one would know who she was.

You're right about that - most people would either not notice or or realize they know her from somewhere but not really be able to place her.

If she knocked on my door I would invite her in for tea and milk, or something stronger.

Other royals typically would receive a photo and a brief column about a wedding from the Los Angeles Times.

The lack of coverage about Camilla in the US is not really a particular concern for the BRF. The US domestic audience are of little consequence to how the future Queen of the GB may be perceived.

Out of all the people I know, friends, casual aquaintences, close family members etc...I am the only one who knows anything about the royal family (any royal family) past that some of them prob know who Queen Elizabeth is, will have heard of Diana and her boys (William's marriage, Kate and George) and maybe might recall Prince Charles....nothing else at all....and a few of them won't even know those basics.

None of them care anything about it. People think I am weird when I get trivia questions about Diana (et al) right when playing one of those trivial pursuit types of games.

The American people know a great deal about the British royal family and welcome the senior and popular royals with open arms whenever they visit. The American people like to downplay their royal interest but that interest comes out when the royals come to visit, there's a royal wedding coming up, a major State funeral or Coronation. There was an American audience for the 1953 Coronation but it's going to be even bigger and much larger scale for Charles's future Coronation and William's (God's willing).

The American public opinion on Charles & Camilla must meant a little something for the very first overseas trip Charles & Camilla made after their controversial wedding was to the United States. They were officially welcomed to the United States by President & Mrs. Bush. I were part of the many people who stayed tune to the C-SPAN coverage of their visit and the media went nuts of the coverage as well.

A great deal of the American people not only like The Queen and some members of the royal family but show a great deal of respect for them.
