Duchess of Cornwall was a smoker. Smoking along with tanning are among the worst things that harm any woman's appearance. Rejuvenation at the retreat after smoking is a futile exercise.

Are you suggesting that if one has been a smoker in the past, it is futile visiting a retreat of the type Camilla visited?

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, has got means to rejuvenate in various retreats. The rejuvenation is like doing a superficial cosmetic repair work in a shabby mansion.

Well at least she tries to do something about it and quit smoking few years ago.

Rather patronizing speech imho

She quit smoking only few years ago ..? Smoking is utterly disgusting. I do acknowledge that my views on smoking and tanning are categorical.

Personally I think there were many reasons for Camilla's health hiatus other than for "superficial" renovation. First off and probably primarily is downtime. I think both Charles and Camilla treasure their "alone" times and this week for Camilla was a very private and relaxing stress free retreat. Coming before an extensive tour down under, I think very beneficial. Second reason would be Camilla and flying. Like many people, she just doesn't cotton to it well. Breaking the trip down into two flights a week apart probably helped. Most important though is this type of a retreat isn't like going to a fat farm or an expensive beauty make over. These specific retreats focus on the integration of mind, body and spirit with diet, exercise, yoga, meditation and to be honest, I'd love to have a week like that for myself... I think we'd all benefit from something like that. The good thing is, once you feel the effects of such a retreat, one does make certain changes in their daily lifestyles. Its called learning.

Actually, Camilla has set a wonderful example for older women in her choice of a health retreat I think.
I so agree with your views and find the duchess an exemplary person, only wishing I had the good fortune to walk in her lg Bennett shoes!

Surprisingly favourable article from the DM :

As the Duchess of Cornwall is becoming a more and more accepted presence in the nation's public life, there is a side of her that is becoming increasingly apparent: she's an animal lover.

Yes, Her Highness does have the magic touch with animals as well as people. I loved the video at the rnd of the article, because you really got a chance to see her 'people/animal' skills. I also adore the picture of Camila with a kitten. How absolutely precious .

Thinking back over this tangent on Camilla's health, I've come to realize that if Camilla did by chance have a 2 pack a day habit, there is no way she would have gone to or survived that week long heath retreat. I would imagine that a retreat with the purpose of cleansing and building up one's body would most likely prohibit any kind of smoking on the premises. Just makes sense when you really think about it.

As predicated by some TRF posters, several posts have been deleted as off topic (skiing, smoking, past scandals) as they have NO RELEVANCE WHATSOEVER with Camilla's Current Events.

Let's get back on topic.

Day 5 - Camilla is named Colonel in Chief of the MP. She seems to be wondering what outfit she might have to wear on her next trip down under... The Duchess so rarely wears red.

The Duchess of Cornwall to Visit Cunard Line's Queen Victoria to Mark the Ship's Fifth Birthday
Quote:
Cunard announced that Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall will visit the Line’s Queen Victoria on Tuesday Dec. 13 to mark the fifth birthday of the ship, which The Duchess named in December 2007. This will be the third occasion Her Royal Highness will have visited the ship. She will be escorted aboard by Peter Shanks, president of Cunard Line, and Captain Peter Philpott, master of Queen Victoria. The ship’s crew will line the three tiers of the Grand Lobby when The Duchess arrives, while embarking passengers will line the tiers for her departure.

The Duchess of Cornwall will visit @BDCH Dec. 12th. She'll be accompanied by Beth & Bluebell, the 2 dogs she adopted from the shelter.

That article was so obviously created to generate "Camilla is NOT the grandmother" type of comments.

For some reason these journalist want to bring up that old mess again.

I have no doubt in my mind that Camilla will give the baby all her love and support. I can imagine she and Charles will go nuts over the baby.

I agree. The baby will grow up knowing Camilla as his/her grandmother. The baby will grow up with three grandmothers, as William will no doubt share tonnes of stories of Diana. Lucky baby!
