I too didn't hear any boo's upon their arrival. The only thing I noticed, (I think) was a little nervousness from Camilla when she looked in the direction of the Spencer's. It was during the ending of a hymn, she looked in their direction and just looked nervous, IMO.

I agree, Osipi.

Well Charles wife was always going to be a Queen with a colourful past, be it Diana or Camilla.

I have to admit the number of people wallowing in the misery of ancient history, well things that happened over 20 years ago that are all more than a little debateable, is just plain depressing.

From what I have seen and read, Camilla is holding her own and doing very well. I admire and respect the woman more with each passing year.

Let's not forget some of the rather colorful Queen Consorts we've had in our country's past.

Certainly Prince Philip seems to be a great fan of the Duchess of Cornwall - they can often be seen sharing a moment together - whether it's a joke, a smile or a warm-hearted touch.
And I'd say he's a fairly good judge of what's good for the British monarchy? After all, it's said he won't accept the presence of Sarah, Duchess of York!

Not necessarily. If the couple had worked at their marriage and family life from the very beginning, without the looming presence of Camilla, the chances are good that Diana would have been a Queen with a sterling reputation (and another couple of children, too).

That little swat on the arm followed W/"And how are you?" She gave him before going into The Chapel Royal for George's Christening still makes me smile when I think of it. From the teasing warm tone Camilla used, I got the impression she meant, "Are you behaving yourself?" Regardless, it really was such a lovely moment and spoke volumes of their relationship. :)

What a heartwarming story. Camilla really is quite a caring person and seems to go out of her way sometimes to make others feel that they matter.

Oh that's so thoughtful. What a nice story. I wish more of these stories about Camilla were known to the general public

Another lovely story was that Camilla won the Dutch audience when she made an icognito walk through Amsterdam, on the morning of the new King's Investiture, to feel the atmosphere and enjoy the festive looking city.

The Duchess became recognized by the public and even bought an orange hat from a street vendor. With that -of course- Camilla endeared the Dutchies on an already very Orange-dominated historic day....

I often think that small gestures like this a much better than grand ones. Camilla has done this sort of thing in the past and it shows a very genuine and caring nature. I like it when royals do these sorts of things!

I agree. These stories along with the spontaneous adopting of a rescue dog gives us insight into Camilla as a person. She doesn't do it for photo ops or because it enhances whatever engagement she happens to be performing but solely because she wants to and is thinking about the other person (or dog). I think she has an adventurous spirit and likes to get out and into the thick of things such as she did during the Dutch celebrations and IIRC, also was spotted out walking about during some of the diamond jubilee celebrations.

All posts rehashing the Charles, Diana, Camilla triangle/state of marriages/etc for the thousandth time have been removed as they are off topic to a thread entitled "Camilla and the Public".

One in a Camillion: the increasing appeal of the Duchess of Cornwall


With republicans, feminists and glamour models among her biggest fans, Rosamund Urwin looks at the increasing appeal of Camilla, the royal who cheers everyone up — and reportedly pinches bottoms

Royal couple marks 10th anniversary

Quote:
A new YouGov poll has found that 10 years later, 49% of the British public now back her becoming queen consort when Charles becomes king. More than a third (35%) think she should be given a lesser title out of sensitivity to Diana, Princess of Wales and 16% were unsure what they thought.

We will see what happens but I have the idea that in essence Camilla is seen as a friendly lady who is easiest to approach by the general public. She deserves the well-willingness. Sine her entrance in "The Firm" she has never set any foot wrong. Credits to her.

She's done a fantastic job over the past 10 years for the Firm and most people that meet her find her to be a warm, down to earth, easy going person that makes one feel at ease. Those qualities have had their effect on Charles too and I think their teamwork makes for not only a happy marriage but also a happy couple taking life forward as it comes. These two definitely balance each other out I think.

Indeed, Camilla has done a great job as Duchess of Cornwall and future Princess Consort/Queen!

If, [God willing] HMQ lives another five years, public opinion will then have mellowed sufficiently for a majority to be in favour of the Duchess taking her rightful place beside her husband, as his Queen.

She has more than proved herself able, and worthy of the role.
