Love seeing Camila interacting with children. She is so genuine with them, and doesn't mind getting down on their level. They sense it and therefore, want to be near her. Of course the fact that this event had to do with the Reading Campaign makes it even better .

The DM is indeed stirring the pot; what response was the Duchess expected to give to a kid? Go into constitutional matters or explain what Princess Consort is?
Read the comments though; the best-rated ones are overwhelmingly supportive.

I wish the media would pay more attention to the fact that the Duchess's campaign is helping children. She is doing great things, and deserves recognition. As to the answer she gave, it was appropriate and diplomatic. No need to stir up trouble where none exists.

Her answer sounds like a teaser to me, not that it matters much.

It is the same answer she gave in exactly the same situation a couple of years ago. No big deal and certainly not new.

I don't find her offensive on this at all - however as to answers to the child that would be less likely to get printed:

  • I like my job right now - being a Duchess is lovely.
  • What do you think - would you like being a king?
  • You know being a Queen is not all it's cracked up to be. She never gets to blow bubble gum bubbles, you know.
  • I'm just happy to be helping you here with your reading. That's an excellent job to have.
  • Oh, I think our Queen right now is doing a wonderful job.
Like you , Atremisia, I think she knew exactly what she was saying.

I agree the Mail is trying to stir the pot but I don't think its a bad thing that Camilla being Queen is put out there. IMHO as a Camilla supporter, the more people get used to the idea the better. If it were never discussed as a possibility then when Charles succeeds it were suddenly announced that she would be known as Queen Camilla after all I think there would be more of an outcry.

I can't remember whether it was in this article or the one in the Telegraph but at least one of them mentioned that according to constitutional experts she will be Queen automatically as wife of the King. That seems to be well known amongst people on these boards. However, not everyone is as well informed as posters to these forums and so, again, I think it is a good thing that Camilla's legal position is discussed now rather than when Charles succeeds.

The Duchess of Cornwall has become patron of Beanstalk - Beanstalk - formerly Volunteer Reading Help - charity that helps children learn to read using volunteers. It's a charity that supports, trains and vets volunteers to help children read in primary schools.

Duchess of Cornwall hands out luxury toiletries to rape victims 'to make them feel more human' | Mail Online

A very laudable initiative. It is a simple thing but IMHO so very valuable. I know police is often helpless when rape victims finally come to report the crime because the first thing they did was shower, so destroying evidence on their body. So this really is the first thing a victim wants to do.

The gesture of giving them high quality products in order to help them "feel human" again is so warm-hearted, caring and surely very, very helpful. For nothing can raise your spirit in such a situation like the smell of something so very costly - and it shows the victims that there are people who treasure them and their body with this offer of toiletries.

I'm glad Camilla and her team managed to get the donations from the up-market producers and the knowledge that these wash bags were packed at Clarence House will give it additional value.

Great idea, Camilla!

That really is totally lovely. I wish her work got more attention- I really love a lot of her projects.
