It's rather nice to see these two going about doing their thing in an understated, terribly British fashion. He is just so much happier (it would appear!) than when he had Diana stealing the limelight. Okay, so they don't get so much coverage, but it's not invisible.

I love the pics of them holding hands in the gardens - so lovely, they do look so comfortable with one another.

I do wish though that the DoC wouldn't go for that shapeless style of dress - it does nothing for her. I do appreciate that she is not a hothouse flower, so flowing is cooler as and it is no doubt pretty humid, but at least some kind of belt would just do so much for her - that middle aged shape she has just needs a little bit of structure. Otherwise lovely.

Great to see Charles on a tour with a really environmental message - just his ticket. Can't help wondering about the carbon footprint of it, but I nitpick!

He is a male of advanced years, the last of his kind and a fellow regarded by many as an indelible symbol of the way things used to be.

PRINCE Charles has compared human inactivity over climate change to frogs being boiled alive, and says we can't see the way the environment is changing because we're too close to it.

I totally agree with you. She definately needs to lose weight.

The Prince of Wales says he will be in "trouble" with his son Prince William after naming a baby giant tortoise after him.

Oh Lord Seajat - I'm not saying I think she needs to lose weight - I tihnk she is in not bad shape. It's just she could do (IMHO of course!) with a little more structure to her outfits - those a-line style dresses don't do anything for her in photos

Thank you, Emeralds and Opals, for posting these wonderful photos, and to everyone else who has posted links to articles about this trip. They show the Prince Charles I love, and the shots of him informally inter-acting with his charming wife make me smile. He certainly enjoys dancing with those Brazilian girls.

For the Prince of Wales, this was probably as good as it gets. An uninhabited island, miles from civilisation, and just a colony of sea lions and a few thousand blue-footed boobies for company.

Thanks for posting-
These are really great pictures-especially the dancing ones. The ones on the Island make me want to plan a vacation.
