Why would Camilla even want to give a personal interview? There is little enough of her life that is private now. She'd be taking the chance that someone would misinterpret what she said or that the interviewer would cut and paste to make her say something that she didn't. Add to that, the people who don't like her would be examining the interview with a find-tooth comb to try to make her look bad.

As it is, Camilla has a happy marriage, a good relationship with William, Kate and Harry, is a hard-working royal and doing an excellent job. The press can write about what they see.

The motto, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" certainly applies here. If the current policy of no interviews is working fine, there's no reason to change it.

Nice source material, Oliv, thank you! And that's a great photo of the couple, Nico, thank you for the find. I think Charles is aging well and looks handsomer as he gets older. They make a striking, engaging couple and it's obvious they're happy and content in their relationship.

I really love these quotes that you have found and the easy going photo of the both of them being very casual.

It really goes to show also that love and admiration for someone goes a heck of a lot deeper than someone's beauty and/or fashion sense. Those two things as far as a relationship goes are very superficial. Charles obviously adores Camilla for far deeper things than a hairstyle, trophy wife body or her makeup applications.

Totally agree Osipi - their love is so obvious for all to see and it is a deep love not superficial based on the shallow judgement of appearance alone.

That is true. But, he married Diana, in spite of his "great" love for Camilla. That was not Diana's fault. He should have stood his ground and married the woman he truly loved. That would have been admirable. To marry and try and have 2 lives was dispicable. To destroy a life was truly dispicable. But, he came out on top, as he has his love and 2 wonderful children from the "other" and, now, people judge the end result, not the beginning.

That is a lovely photo. I love the relaxed atmosphere, and I love Camilla's comfy sneakers.

The picture is glorious. What an honestly delightful image they project - and Charles is looking very fine these days in his olding years. And Camilla - she is perfect - a handsome lady without vanity.

What is puzzling is how beauty - always in the eye of the beholder, anyway - starts becoming a synonym for 'virtue'. Beauty must be good. Beauty must be better. Diana - like so many unfortunate women - had a self image problem manifesting with her bulimia. Attitudes that are being suggested by some posters - that beauty is a certain emaciated, photo 'sweet' image - make Diana's illness all the more tragic, because it affirms that such women are 'right' to engage in the bulimia. Image is all - they will be loved 'if only' or 'only if' they are slim enough. By these attitudes expressed here, the sad distortion is given 'proof'.

Just a human being. And it's not a demand, just something I'd like to see. People ask me if Camilla can do anything that will change my opinion of her, and that's something she could do that might do that. Maybe this should be in the "Camilla & the Press" thread.

That's nice. Camilla can be "special", "wonderful", but not a single mention of her looks.

What makes you think that Prince Charles is so shallow that he thinks a persons value can only be judged by their looks?

What Camilla looks like has nothing to do with the quality of the marriage.

I don't think they care one way or the other about you - they don't know you or anything about you.

They would also take the view that you are entitled to your opinion and if giving a superficial interview making platitudinous comments would make you change your mind then they can live without your good wishes.

They know that many people are changing their views based on more important criteria - actions, the obvious love between the pair, the support Camilla gives Charles, the fact that he sees something in her beyond the superficial looks that seems to be the only criteria that matters to some people.

Your post is very demanding. You will only consider changing your mind if she gives an interview - rather than judging her based on the actions she does day to day since she married - and this thread is about her since 2005 so anything before then is irrelevant.

Camilla is a human being as well and has been put through the ringer by people like you - based on the words of others in the past. She though has risen above the petty, bitter mob to be an increasingly popular lady who supports her husband and clearly loves him. She may never have the support of the majority but more and more are seeing her for the classy lady she is.

She doesn't need to give an interview for the voyeuristic pleasure of people who want to see her justify her actions from over 20 years ago.

Your loss then.

That is because he sees beyond the outer skin and sees the inner person - the special, wonderful person.

Those who only judge by the outside appearance often miss the beauty within. Charles doesn't miss that side of her - he has always seen that inner person.

Hardly - they are one very relaxed and happy couple.

I really don't think that there is one among us that hasn't made some kind of mistake in our lives that we wished we could go back and have a "do over" with. I think the past has made each and everyone perhaps a better person. We DO learn from our mistakes and hope that others can see us trying to be the best person that we can be. Perhaps its all of life's lessons that have made Charles and Camilla really cherish the love and togetherness they now share? I really don't think they take too much time to dwell on the past. I know I sure don't.

Are you serious? If you really love someone, you love them for who they are and not what they look like. It two people are together just because they find each other beautiful, the relationship is pointless, in my opinion.

How ridiculous would it be if Chalres said something like "Oh yes, Camilla means a lot to me because she is pretty." I would think he is just a jerk.

I really wonder why this is so important to Diana's Ghost. You live in the US, are you British and still a subject of the monarchy? If not, why do you care and in any case, why should they care? You are being a trifle ridiculous, don't you know

From her user name, she is an admirer of Diana. But there is no need to criticize Camilla (especially her looks) or the relationship between Charles and Camilla in order to bolster up Diana. In fact, it only detracts from Diana, in my opinion.

I think the clue is in her name, Dianas Ghost is clearly an adoring fan of Diana's. It's the reoccurring Diana lovers = Camilla haters.
