It definitely looks like the Duchess enjoyed this engagement.

An obvious sign of somebody doing their job well!

In full agreement with both of these statements. Camila is definitely a natural at doing her job, and her sincerity is more than likely appreciated by those that are lucky to meet her.

This is an utter nonsense, ill-infirmed and totally incorrect comparision, good for nothing but only to remind people and stir up all "the past".
I am so surprised how much the "angel-devil-fanaticism" has returned to the DM comments page..

Huh. I found it to actually be a descent comparison and one that put Camilla in a good light. It's not like the DM went and compared her to Anne Boleyn or anything.

The article itself isn't bad or negative towards Camilla, but nowhere did I find any indication the Duchess "hints at affinity" to Catherine Parr. This is what the Duchess had written:
Quote:
'Her commitment to what is right and good, expressed with humility and openness to others, is as valuable now as it was in the more turbulent times of the Tudors. Few women's writings have come down to us from so many centuries ago. In the pages that follow are found not only some of the carefully crafted prayers that Katherine intended for publication, but also the more personal hopes and fears of a woman who was as passionate in her faith as she was in other aspects of her eventful life.'
It's a nice and accurate description of the late Queen, a lovely foreword, but that's it. The DM had to write an article (full of inaccuracies, I must add), which was bound to get negative comments and rehash the old Charles-Diana-Camilla story again.

Camilla definitely doesn't seem to have hinted any affinity, that's true. The DM is doing that all by itself (in this case the hints are down right anvil sized).

I thought she wrote a lovely foreword, it was nice to read something that Camilla had actually written. It doesn't surprise me that the Daily Mail twisted the story into the old pantomime of Camilla being the wicked witch, and the commenters are obviously refusing to get down from their high horses.

Quite exaggerated :

Camilla, the dazzling Duchess, in Amsterdam to celebrate the crowning of King Willem-Alexander of Holland | Mail Online

Well i love Camilla very much but i would not say that "she was the real star of the show".
