I would go at least an hour ahead if you're going to an event attended by both Charles and Camilla. If you're going to her one solo event in B.C., 45 minutes ahead might be safe. But think about how long you'd feel comfortable standing and go as early as possible based on that just to be sure!

Drizzle greets Charles, Camilla in Victoria

Taking shelter under umbrellas from a light Vancouver Island drizzle, Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla the Duchess of Cornwall, made a fashionably late arrival in Victoria Friday to begin a four-day visit to British Columbia.

If there's a section of veterans, disabled people, or elderly people in wheelchairs, stand near them. They get extra attention.

Charles won't be there just Camilla. My mom thinks we should go around 1:15 since she is supposed to arrive at 1:50. The only thing I'm afraid of is freezing to death but hopefully it's worth the wait

Good luck, ghost_night. I hope you get a good spot and get to speak to Camilla. And don't forget to take your camera.

Daniel Szoller didn’t expect security agents to disperse the crowd of over 100 to make way for Prince Charles and Camilla until he saw the royal couple approach his cheese stand.

Royals end Ont. tour | Toronto & GTA | News | Toronto Sun

Camilla Parker-Bowles has made an impression on Canadians on her first visit to the country this week.

The Duchess of Cornwall has displayed her regal sense of fashion with Prince Charles by her side on a three-day visit to Toronto before jetting back to British Columbia for the final leg of their trip.

The Duchess of Cornwall dazzles Toronto in regal style with Prince Charles by her side

The recent slams against Prince Charles are uninformed and unfair. His visit to Montreal is primarily to present new colours to that venerable city institution, the Black Watch (Royal Highland Regiment) of Canada and to greet Black Watch soldiers who have just returned from tours in Afghanistan.

Prince Charles is here to fulfill his duty

The Duchess of Cornwall came face-to-face with her teenage past when she was reunited with a friend she had not seen for 45 years.
Camilla, 62, was 17 years old and crazy about the Beatles and make-up when she last saw Charlotte Ericson at the Swiss finishing school Mon Fertile.


Camilla reunited with old friend - World News, Breaking News - Independent.ie

As if to defy polls showing Canadians couldn't give a hoot about the Royal Family, Queen's Park was all abuzz last Wednesday. As soon as the bells clanged signalling the end of the legislative day, MPPs and staff scrubbed up and stampeded for the exits, all heading in the same direction -- a reception for Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, at the posh Carlu.

"Camilla! Lottie here!" - continuation from the above:

But her former classmate - nicknamed Lottie - was determined to meet the Duchess when she visited Victoria, British Colombia, on Friday as the royal continued her tour of Canada with the Prince of Wales.

Armed with a placard she had made which read "Camilla! Lottie Here, Remember Mon Fertile 1963-1964?" Mrs Ericson, 62, waited for her friend outside the province's parliament.

When the royal couple went on a walkabout after a ceremonial welcome outside the building the Duchess stopped and greeted her friend. Mrs Ericson, who like Camilla has two grandchildren, said: "She recognised me and said hello. It was great to see her. She told me she had recently seen some pictures of us all, so she must have been in touch with some of the girls from the school."

It was an obscure joke that didn't have much currency in Canada. But it was enough to make the Duchess of Cornwall smile.
Ralph Frayne had just shaken the hand of Prince Charles Thursday aboard the HMCS Haida -- the destroyer Frayne had served on during the Second World War

Veteran tells duchess a joke - St. Catharines Standard - Ontario, CA

Not a joke even here, more an insult, if he handed her the coin, weird!

It's a shame you guys didn't realize it, you could've actually met each other. How cool would that be to meet another person on the forum.

Prince Charles will be handed a reminder of treaty promises made by the Crown more than a century ago when he attends a dinner at Government House tonight.
Shawn Atleo, national chief of the Assembly of First Nations, will be a guest at the dinner hosted by Lt.-Gov. Steven Point and Premier Gordon Campbell. He plans to hand a statement about treaties to the Prince of Wales' staff.


National chief takes treaty message to Prince Charles

Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, have another event-packed day ahead of them now that their royal visit has shifted to British Columbia.
The couple will spend the morning touring the Olympic and Paralympic village in Vancouver

Alright so here we go, well me and my mom left the house at around 12:20pm and headed to Safeway and bought a bouquet of flowers which I was hoping to give to Camilla. We arrived at VanDusen Botanical Gardens at 12:57pm and waited in the car for a while until we saw more people arriving. Afterwards we headed inside because rumours began to fly that they would block off the front entrance and we wouldn't be able to meet with her before she went inside the gardens. We decided to take our chances and wait outside. As the time approached for her arrival a bigger crowd began to form. We spoke with others in the crowd while we waited. All of a sudden out of nowhere RCMP pops up in front of my face and scares the living daylights out of me well turns out all they wanted to do was check my bouquet of flowers. The man was really nice and funny. He told me Camilla will most likely come to talk to you and he told me exactly what to do and how to act. When he gave me back the flowers he told me " alright everything looks good you don't look like a terrorist" and we both laughed. Finally the time arrived I saw the Royal car pull up and I started to freak out in my head. She got out and slowly took her time and shook everybody's hand. She finally reached where I was. She came up to me I said " Hello so nice to meet you (I'm a total idiot I forgot to call her Your Royal Highness) and I shook her hand. She said thank you so much for coming out and then looked at my flowers and said are those for me in which I nodded. She then took the flowers from me. Security went to take them from her but she wanted to carry them. She then waited for my mom to finish taking a picture of her and also shook her hand! She musta thought I was retarded cause I was like so star struck I musta looked like a complete idiot while I was looking at her. Anyways we were freezing so we ran into the car and decided to ditch our original plans of having lunch at the restaurant in the building and just go home and have lunch. I have to say she is such a sweet person and she is really beautiful in real life. I am just shocked and I really think anyone who has a problem with Camilla should think twice. I have no idea what the press' problem is with her but she was absolutely lovely. I definitely enjoyed myself it was everything I'd ever imagined and more. So here are my pics. They aren't the greatest since all the umbrella's were getting in our way.

Dundurn Castle?

Why did they go to Dundurn Castle ? It is just an overblown mansion actually with low ceilings. Much ado about nothing.

Camilla is a descendant of Sir Allan MacNab, who had the residence built.
