Besides, we left the glamour back in the 80's...the era of Dynasty and Dallas and over the top glitz are over with. Which is good because if they met J.R. Ewing, I am sure he would hit on the Duchess.

This is just a visit to test the waters and meant to be one of friendship and mutual interest.

I am glad I missed that previous conversation...I was getting boiling angry just reading it...Then your J.R comment made me laugh and took some anger out.

They will probably do alot of environment issues. That has always been Prince Charles safe area. It's about the only major issue he can publicaly take a side on without causing alot of trouble.

Charles and Camilla embark on first official trip abroad since wedding

WASHINGTON, (AFP) - Britain's Prince Charles and his new bride Camilla arrive in the United States on their first official trip overseas since their wedding in April.
The eight-day visit to New York, Washington and San Francisco will include a wreath-laying ceremony at the site of the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center, a meeting with UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, lunch and dinner at the White House and several receptions, as well as meetings with business leaders and organic farmers.

Royal watchers said the eight-day tour will mark an opportunity for the heir to the British throne to test public sentiment toward Camilla in a country where his ex-wife, the late Princess Diana, remains hugely popular.

Prince Charles and the duchess to be in Bay Area



Britain's Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, will visit a Berkeley middle school, a Point Reyes farmers' market and a Tenderloin hotel during their four-day visit to the Bay Area next month.

Charles' visit is part of an eight-day U.S. trip beginning Tuesday in New York and followed by a stop in Washington, D.C., for dinner with President Bush.

I love Camilla in that photo. She is so feminine and chic. But, I swear that is a old photo. I remember seeing it a while back. I love her hair and make up like that. Here are some american articles on the trip.

I love this suit! It's so chic and the pastel colour really suits 'Milla's fair complexion. I'm so pleased that she chose to wear it again.

Hmm, they will be in New York on Tuesday to lay a wreath at the WTC site. That's probably at the commemoration platform. Its open to the weather so I don't think they'll spend a great deal of time there. They'll probably spend more time at the British Memorial Gardens. Wonder where that is?

Camilla takes 50 dresses and 40 staff on tour

When She strides on to the world stage next week on her first state visit as the wife of the future King, the Duchess of Cornwall will naturally want to look her best.

So, in the most regal of traditions, she is taking 50 dresses and 40 staff on her eight-day tour of America, with everything, bar the outfits, paid for by the Foreign Office - which is funded by the taxpayer. When she takes her seat for dinner at the White House, the visit's most important engagement, all eyes will be on the woman who last week established her status as Queen in waiting when she stepped out in a diamond tiara personally loaned by the Queen.


In a break with protocol, Charles and Camilla have been invited to take both lunch and dinner with President Bush and his wife and Camilla knows it is her chance to wow Washington's elite. She has not yet decided which frock she will wear for the state banquet, but she has narrowed the choice down to three, and has her eye on a stunning pearl-studded, ivory evening gown from her favourite designers, Antonia Robinson and Anna Valentine, who created her wedding dress.

Oh, my - apparently the Daily Mail reporter somehow can read Camilla's mind. Handy trick if you can do it.

Prince Charles to plead Islam's cause to Bush

according to the front page of the sunday telegraph of today:

(it is not on his official schedule but the seminar which charles has agreed to attend at georgetown university is about religion)

he seems really interested in religous peace lately. I think the title Prince Charles to plead Islam's cause to Bush is completely wrong. President Bush has many times said no blame on Islam-it is extremests who do not practice the religion of Islam. Islam is of peace..everyone knows that.

I think HRH is smart enough not to go there and discuss religion with our President. I think he will do what his program says, focus on the educational and conservation issues he holds in high regard.

Well if the Birmingham News is any indicator, there's hardly an uproar at all. Birmingham is right in the middle of the Bible Belt so if you'd expect a strong negative reaction you'd expect it here.

I was suprised that the paper even carried the story. The Prince and Duchess aren't going anywhere near Alabama.

I think this visit is getting more attention than a regular royal visit but not as much (ofcourse) as when Charles and Diana came.

Just watched the interview on 60 Minutes. I think he did an excellent job of presenting himself. You can see how much his heart and passion are in conservation and the environment. I was impressed by the town of Poundbury as well.

The 60 Minutes interview was good, but I'm just glad there is something about their tour on US tv. Poundbury indeed looks lovely and I feel Prince Charles really does try to make a difference with his life. I always cringe w/these reporters though...he asked Charles about "your mother" (ahem, it's Your Majesty) and he (Steve Croft) said in the intro that you don't hear the royals speak that much (that just sounded stupid as well as being incorrect.)

Steve Croft, whom I am not very familiar with as I don't watch "60 Minutes", must have been thinking it was an informal interview. I don't think any interview with Prince Charles would be informally taken as the first interview before Charles comes here to the U.S., however the reporters in the U.S. vary in their opinions, so I am not to discount the idea that he feels that he is closer to Charles than anyone at that interview, when in fact he is fooling himself. You are correct, Lady Jean, he did not ask that question correctly, but rather, presumptively, posed the question as an interrogatory and investigative miscue. He should have corrected himself.

Team Camilla prepare for their US tour

Against all the odds, this trip into 'Dianaland' should be a triumph for Camilla

I liked the interview tonight. As always I find myself agreeing with the Prince on many things; the importance of ecumenicalism in world politics, bringing back the "humanity" to these times of great technological advances, and his views on architecture. I just wish this side of him was more respected in Great Britain and in the wider world. There was a good article written by him in this month's Conde Nast Traveler(British edition) about the importance of maintaining a balanced ecosystem alongside an area where tourism is an important part of the economy. He wrote mostly about area affected by the Boxing Day Tsunami. Well, I count myself as an American who will be curious and non-critical(that whole glass houses idea) about the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall coming to the US. I do, however, take great offense at the idea that simply because I live(born and raised) within 50 or even 500 miles as some idiots say, of an ocean, that I do not reflect the views of Middle American(read: a "real" America supposedly inhabitated by morally superior people). That gets my goat. Well, on a lighter note, to me and my family, Charles has always been called "Chucky" and I "chuckled" tonight when they mentioned Camilla as his bride and I immediately thought of "The Bride of Chucky". Hmm.

I find the cancellation of the visit of the Duke and Duchess to New Orleans unfortunate. The President has since visited the area several times and I don't think it would reflect on him poorly had they visited the area.
