Does anyone have any idea why Camilla wasn't at the Braemar Games? Has she taken ill?

Just answered my own question: Laura Lopes is due to have twins and her mother is staying near-by.

Mermaid1962....I think that is last year's Braemar's game. Laura had her twins already.

Two twin boys were born in January of 2010.

I hardly think that Her Majesty is upset about the marriage of Charles and Camilla as evidenced by actions on her part.

1. She was there, wearing yellow: http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/75372053/WireImage

2. She's smiling: http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/52611128/Getty-Images-News

3. and, one of the most telling to me, is the abundance of jewelry we've seen on Camilla that has royal provenance.
One major historical tiara:
http://newsimg.bbc.co.uk/media/image...ry_camilla.jpg


one personal favorite tiara of HM's mother, an important diamond necklace belonging originally to Queen Mary for Camilla's 60th birthday:
http://img.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2007/07_02/camillaPA2307_468x293.jpg ,

the Greville diamond necklace--all five strands:
http://www.royalanecdotes.com/wp-content/CamillaJewels.jpg,

the Leek brooch (a personal favorite):
http://www.royal-magazin.de/england/queen-alexandra/queen-alexandra-wedding-emeralds.htm


clips, countless brooches, a diamond ring belonging to QEQM used as an engagement ring:
http://farm1.static.flickr.com/17/20663149_b551cd3548_o.jpg

and the PoW pendant with emerald drop earrings:
http://www.royal-magazin.de/england/queen-alexandra/ladies-of-bristol-jewel.htm

and this pic just because it is so good:
http://img.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/200...ch_399x600.jpg .

Given the abundance of jewels Her Majesty has provided to Camilla (who already had a lovely and suitable collection) I just do not see any animosity there.


4. The presentation of the Royal Family Order--QEII did not have to give that to Camilla (Princess Michael is still awaiting hers--which is a shame, in my own opinion).

I find it almost amusing that there are still people intent on wreaking havoc to this marriage, which by all appearances, looks very happy.

Oh, I guess I'm really not up on things. I thought that Laura had a baby, but forgot that they were twins.

I'm hardly "intent on wreaking havoc to this marriage." However, I did find it odd that Camilla wasn't at the Braemar Games. Believe me, I do NOT want the C & C marriage to fail.

I agree--she should have been at the games--but for whatever reason, she wasn't. She may have been sick, may have wanted some alone time with her daughter and grandchildren, etc.....
That was the best pic I could find of HM! I remember the video (albeit short) that was showing the day of the wedding--she was smiling a lot. She seemed happy for the couple to me.

Bah i presume she's doing the same thing than last year : spending some good times with her children and grandchildren. Who can blame her ?

Back on the Marriage topic i've just accidentally found these highly glamorous images of the royal couple by Mario Testino celebrating the first year of their union in 2006 :

Oh Mermaid, no-one is accusing you of bringing chaos and anarchy to the thread! The comments were in reference to the nonsense posted on the previous page about happy photographs being a sham, HM deliberately upstaging the DOC, etc etc.

I adore the first photo, very formal -- yet relaxed. She's beautiful and he's handsome. I don't think you could look as content as they do and NOT be having a good time being wed to one another.

Not sure on line, however, any book on Prince Charles will have a few.

Thanks, Warren. The reply came close after my post, which is why I thought it was about mine.

Thanks MAfan!!

Amazing photos. Especially the first one. A pity that Charles didn´t marry her at this time.
