Thanks for the photos!
The visits seems to be going well. Prince Charles appears to be a great conversationalist.

Prince Charles compromises to end row over who will open the Games | Mail Online

Clarence House and the Indian government have patched together a compromise following a dispute over the opening of the Commonwealth Games.

It is understood that following intense negotiations it was agreed that both the Prince and the President will officially open the Games together.

Charles will read a message from the Queen during which he will declare the Games open but President Patil will have the last word, saying: ‘Let the Games begin.’

I don't see why Prince Charles cannot say "Let The Games Begin", has the Queen said it at all the other games?

Charles & Camilla in India

Prince of Wales arrives in India for the Commonwealth Games | Mail Online

Clarence House has played down reports of a row over who will preside over the opening ceremony, saying the prince and India's president Pratibha Patil will both play an important part. A spokeswoman said: 'Both the Prince of Wales and the president of India will have a prominent role in the opening ceremony in Delhi. 'The Queen has asked the Prince of Wales to represent her at the opening of the Commonwealth Games. We cannot be specific about the choreography but the prince will read out the Queen's baton message, ending by declaring the Games open.'

During the visit Charles and Camilla will also attend events in the Punjab and Rajasthan states in the north of India.

The Duchess of Cornwall is already in India and spent the last few days at an exclusive health centre near Bangalore with family and friends.

The Earl of Wessex, who is vice-patron of the Commonwealth Games Federation, will also attend the opening ceremony and arrived today with the prince by plane from the UK.

At the KL games the King of Malaysia actually did that - Edward read the Queen's speech and the King said 'Let the Games Begin'.

So did the Queen not attend the Malaysian Commonwealth Games? Much is being made of the fact that this is the first time in 44 years that the Queen isn't attending the games.

2010 Commonwealth Games opening ceremony: Athletes meet Prince Charles | Mail Online

Quote:
She may have looked a little hot under the collar.

But the Duchess of Cornwall can't entirely blame her blushes on the searing Indian sun.
Camilla appeared delighted to meet two toned athletes as they prepared for the Delhi Commonwealth Games yesterday.

'You guys look very fit,' the 63-year-old told the bare-chested decathlon competitors, gesturing towards their muscles.
Go Camilla

The President of India will be the most senior person present, as the head of state. As a result of this, the organisers would like President Patil to declare the games open.

But Charles was the one who actually said "I declare the 19th Commonwealth games open".

The President said 'Let the games begin"

Video: Duchess of Cornwall makes her first Skype call - Telegraph

Duchess of Cornwall makes her first Skype call

The Duchess of Cornwall has learnt how to Skype today during a visit to a school in the heart of the Punjab.

On the third day of the Duchess and the Prince of Wales’s tour of India, the Duchess was given the lesson in live internet video chatting by pupils at St Stephen’s School in Chandigarh.

After putting on a set of headphones, she spoke to children at the Park View school in Haringey, north London, which is twinned with St Stephen’s.

Tejas Gupta, the 16-year-old school captain who set up the laptop for the Duchess, said: “The Duchess seemed very down to earth.”
Later some of the girls at the school dressed in brightly-coloured saris performed a Sammi dance, a gypsy dance from the Punjab, after which she admired the children’s silver necklaces.
During the trip she wore a garland made of marigolds and roses which was presented to her by two schoolchildren when she arrive

But she's looking at them straight in the eyes... Thank you all for the photos and the articles! I was hoping to see Prince Edward as well, but couldn't open the links. It seems to be quite the visit!
