Marg - I agree and I loved that quote about wool disguising "things."
I think the POW has lightened up. He enjoys hearing people more than he used to. It lets him converse with children, to admit he fears sooner or later that someone's beloved dog will nip him (THEN WHAT?) to dance and to smile a lot more than in the Di years. Comparing photos of the POW from the Di years trip to AU with the Camilla years trip to AU - he almost looks like a diffrent man.
I'm very glad he is happier. I give the Queen and Camilla great credit for this. Both now give him the space to be Charles. I also credit the Prince's willingness to stay open to good things.
I remain sad that Diana thought she was marrying for love. The saddest thing for me is that Charles, Diana, William and Harry had to pay a huge price to get the whole "the firm" thing to move to where they are today. The family seems to be in a better place, the public supports them more and hope has returned to the royal family.
This PNG, AU, NZ trip showed that.
