Thanks for adding, Artemisia


Besides an event together with the Prince of Wales (see here), the Duchess of Cornwall has toured gardens in Shoreditch and Dalston as part of a visit to the Chelsea Fringe Festival today, May 30. She met staff, volunteers and school children at Spitalfields City Farm and visited the Oranges and Lemons Garden at St. Leonards Church in Shoreditch, before touring The Geffrye Museum in Dalston and meeting community volunteers at the Dalston Eastern Curve Garden.

She does look very nice. I also liked the wrap dress, simply because it fitted. I don't know why she doesn't wear more fitted dresses. Oh also change her hairstyle.

She really enjoys gardening

Naomi Gummer is Honourable Naomi Gummer, the daughter of Peter Gummer, Baron Chadlington and Lucy Rachel Dudley-Hill.
Henry Allsopp is also the brother of the very well-known TV presenter, Kirstie Allsopp, who recently interviewed Prince Charles for Good Housekeeping magazine.

I think the balcony scene the other day with just the core members of the family may have been an introduction to a much busier schedule for all concerned. I may be wrong but I get the feeling that the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall are going to be seen alot more in the coming months.

Lovely pictures of Camilla, thanks Nico and Iceflower.
I thought Camilla was in Transylvania, with Prince Charles.

That little blond girl gave a very sweet curtsy to Camilla.

Fair play to Camilla; it's been wet with winds of 70mph in the south west today but she still looks as if she wouldn't want to be anywhere else.

The pictures from the Royal Cornwall Show are great. EIIR, I'm in agreement with you about the little girl and her curtsey, as well as the fact that Camila's demeanor (at least in pictures) definitely said 'I want to be here'. Her smile was extremely genuine, and as always, she looked great in light blue.

It's clear Camilla's schedule has already increased this year.

If you look at the annual engagements thread, last year Camilla did 250 engagements according to Tim Donnovan who does the yearly letter to the Times. On Iluvbertie's figures she has already done over 147 this year and we are not quite half way through the year.

The Duchess of Cornwall has marked a statue with SmartWater at Hyde Park, London on June 14, 2012.

Camilla promotes a campaign to stop war memorials being vandalised. In Memoriam 2014 will try and protect every memorial in the country by the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War in three years time. The campaign will aim to mark every one of Britain's 100,000 war monuments with SmartWater, widely used to protect house contents from burglary by putting an invisible code
on property.

at St Mary's Church, Barnes in southwest London.

Arrival of Duchess gives show a big lift
Quote:
The Duchess of Cornwall lit up the county's largest annual event when she arrived at the showground on the outskirts of Wadebridge, and was greeted by large crowds during a scheduled four-hour tour. The sun didn't exactly shine but there was a lull in the rain and high winds by the time Camilla arrived via helicopter at the Royal Cornwall Show.
A lovely article.

I thought this happened awhile ago.

Camilla tastes Royal Canapes


Quote:
The Duchess of Cornwall was left licking her fingers in approval when she joined a group of young cooks making canapes for the Queen.

Camilla could not resist sampling some of the royal mint icing that had stuck to her hand as she added a chocolate button to a miniature pudding created by the school children.

I think you might be remembering when she launched this idea and did some cooking with some children to get the scheme up and running. This event relates to the winners actually cooking in BP - the end of the competition.

Lovely to see her at the beginning and the end.

Yesterday, June 28, the Duchess of Cornwall attended a Diamond Jubilee tea party in St Paul's Church in south Kensington for elderly local residents. The Duchess provided the party with tea cakes decorated with her crest and was given a huge hand painted tea pot. Camilla also attended a 'Diamond Champions' reception at Queensway Ice Rink, Batswater, London.

The Duchess of Cornwall has attended the festivities in the village of Colnbrook in Slough, Buckinghamshire yesterday, June 29.

Colnbrook's Jubilee Clock was unveiled on the High Street in the centre of Colnbrook's conservation area. The clock is 5.5 metres
tall and is made of cast aluminium. It will stand close to where the town's Coronation Clock installed to mark Edward VII's Coronation stood until 1930s.

It's lovely to see so much of the Duchess recently, she seems to be having a very busy year so far. Then again, as anyone who doesn't work for the Daily Mail knows, she's often busy but we just don't see what she's doing.

I'm no fan of the Daily Mail but to be fair to them, their website often has coverage of Camilla's engagements - far more than the Daily Telegraph's. Their articles (except Richard Kay/Geoffrey Levy's) have also been quite positive in recent months.

As you say, it's lovely to see so much of Camilla. She has noticeably increased her workload this year
