Ahh, thank you for digging up the actual article.
It seems I had over-estimated the Globe's hacks constitutional illiteracy.

They aren't claiming that William is the new King of England as a direct result of Camilla's attempted suicide by bone fracture (she should really lay off the booze, it seems ).
I stand corrected.

Why? Then the Globe can't come out with a "DoC checking into Betty Ford Clinic" exclusive.

A few years ago I was tripped up by a tornado in a puppy suit and ended up breaking my ankle and like Camilla, was told to keep weight off it and leave the cast be... no scratchin :) I know at that time would I have been in her shoes.. err cast.. I'd probably not commit to doing public engagements.

I like that expression - tornado in a puppy suit. That is the best description of my puppy (and his late older brother who caused the problem) that I have ever seen.

Having just come home from hospital after a knee reconstruction resulting from a similar accident - tornado in a puppy suit - I can empathise with you and Camilla.

The Duchess of Cornwall put on a brave face yesterday, flashing a smile as she appeared in her plaster cast for the first time since breaking her leg.
Camilla looked remarkably chirpy during a trip to hospital for an X-ray on the injury sustained while hill-walking in Scotland nine days ago.
The smile says it all, a tough break can't stop Camilla | Mail Online

Back to work!

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, is pushed along in her wheelchair
during an event at Clarence House in central London on April 21,
2010. The Duchess hosted the reception to thank supporters of
the Ebony Horse Club, a charity that helps to improve the life skills,
education and attainment of some of the most disadvantaged
children and young people growing up in Brixton, South London.

It seems she even surprised the Royal House with her attendance
today, it wasn't listed at all in the official calendar of events..

I'm very sorry that she got another injury, but this hindsight..

I think Camilla should be undertaking whatever duties she can while her leg heals. She's getting the best of care and I'm guessing she's fairly comfortable sitting down in that wheelchair being pushed around. It's a nuisance of course, but we all have to do things that are a nuisance, and she's not in agony so she should what she can. I think she is doing the right thing, so should get a tick in the "fulfilling her duties" box, but she's not doing something outstanding that she should get a standing ovation for.

My vet tech nephew (large animal husbandry) came out with this:

"So, two injuries in short order? Look, at this point, you can't breed her, you can't show her, and she's not large enough to protect person or property. I know what we'd do."

A tad on the tart side, but Lord, I laughed.

The Duchess is going to look back on 2010 as a year of irritating injuries. First, her back, a broken leg and a then sprained her arm. If she stays positive and I thing she is, she will be grateful that all the injuries will cure in a few weeks.

Well thank God they are not thinking of "putting her down" with said injuries!

No complaints from cheery Camilla as she continues to battle on despite new injury - hellomagazine.com (22/04/2010).

BBC News - Duchess of Cornwall champions British produce

The Duchess of Cornwall has championed "woefully under-rated" British produce and criticised major food companies for ignoring seasonal produce.

Speaking at an event to launch British Food Fortnight, the duchess said jokes about British food being "dull, turgid and over-boiled" were "utter rubbish".

Actually I don't think it's the produce that's to blame for misconceptions, but the cooks and the way they treat the produce. When I was a child my mother practised the inherited (from England) tendency to boil the life out of vegetables, then in the early 1970s she learnt about stir-frying and steaming rather than boiling. It made a big difference. I even began to like cabbage.

But good for Camilla for speaking out about it. Wherever you live, fruit and vegetables that are fresh in season are at their best, and seasonal variety makes meals more interesting.
