Dreadful portrait of Camilla.. Nose too wide, eyes too small.

The noses on all the royals are larger/wider than actuality. (He clearly needs to redo all the portraits.)

Prince Phillip’s looks almost lifelike.

I don't think the one of Camilla looks like her face at all. And he made the Countess of Wessex look like she was sneering!
I really don't like the one of Prince Charles either.

The video narrator says the Duchess of Cornwall liked her portrait, but surely she was only being polite!

Today, January 29, the Duchess of Cornwall made a visit to the 4th Battalion, The Rifles, in Wiltshire. She visited the battalion during their pre-deployment training and saw some mission-specific training, opened the Officers' Mess and joined soldiers and their families at a reception. Not the best weather, but Camilla kept her smile

l The Duchess of Cornwall’s role as an unsung champion of the victims of rape and sexual abuse will come to the forefront next week when she makes an impassioned speech calling for a fundamental change in society’s attitudes.
For the past three years, almost unnoticed, the Duchess has travelled the country hearing the stories of rape victims, meeting campaigners and talking to officers from the specialist rape unit of the Metropolitan Police.
On Tuesday she will hold a reception at Clarence House for groups dealing with rape and sexual abuse in which she will speak of her passion for a subject that, campaigners say, is far too often ignored by

She visited the Rape and Sexual Abuse Support Centre in Croydon, South London, in 2009. Her host that day, Yvonne Traynor, chief executive of Rape Crisis South London, said: “Rape and sexual violence is not a cuddly subject. For someone in the public eye who is brave enough to support us and talk about the subject is amazing. She has listened to some horrible stories. She has not flinched. It has really affected her to understand what is going on.”

Since 2009 the Duchess has visited nine Rape Crisis and Sexual Assault Referral Centres (SARCs) in Britain. Although the visits are not secret, they attract very little publicity because of the issues of confidentiality involved.

I can't print out the entire story because of copyright issues but it is a great piece by the Times. Here is the link but access is generally restricted.

Thank you for the summary, cepe.
It's not a light or easy issue to be involved with, and I am glad the Duchess supports the cause of the victims.

On a different note, those women are really brave to share their stories in a bid to punish the culprits and prevent future cases.

Picture of the Duchess at a Rape Crisis Centre - the look in her eyes shows to me that she is moved by what she is hearing.

That for me is one more reason to love the Duchess of Cornwall. Her charity interests are right in line with a lot of causes dear to my heart.

I'm glad she's taken on this particular issue.

Thank you for the summary. The Duchess earns more and more respect and admiration from me with this particular cause.

Those women are incredibly brave for choosing to speak up, and I am sincerely glad someone as high-profile as the Duchess is supporting the cause.
Well done, Your Highness!

Let's face it, it's not an easy cause to support and to speak about. I think the Duchess is doing a wonderful job, with humanity and dignity.
Well done indeed.
