I had heard that Peter Shand-Kydd was a distant cousin to Camilla, but they certainly aren't closely related. It is sort of ironic, though...(pensive)

Seems that Camilla has a close-knit family. I just realised that her and Charles' special aide Virginia Carington is the ex-wife of Camilla's uncle Lord Ashcombe, the brother of her mother.

Welcome. No, Tom, Camilla's son does not have a title.

Just like her daughter.

After Camilla's mother family she came from Barons of Ashcombe, Earls of Albemarle or Baronets Edmonstone of Duntreath.

Why not? But what it could be simply Sir and Lady?

He could give them countless titles. However, it is probably most unlikely.

Virginia Carington also shared a flat with Camilla in the early 1970s when Camilla worked as a secretary for a Mayfair interior design company. Which is presumably before Virginia married Lord Ashcombe. So as friends they go back a long way.

Interesting. We finally seem to see the "Camilla is the next queen"-campaign at work. NotW prints about the topic, William tells that he is not available for any media campaign for the next five years, Tom Parker Bowles reminiscenses in the Mail about his ancestors creating a very positive atmo in the background of Camilla's. I really like that and I sincerely hope it works because I have a faible for Charles and Camilla and would love to see her as queen, which is her deserved position as the wife of the next king.

But you know that she can cook complete menus - so I guess she can.

It makes me wonder, though, when does she have the time to cook anything and does she want to? And if she does, does she have a fight with the regular chef about it?

I think it has been reported that she keeps her own home, Raymill House, especially for weekends with her own family where she cooks sunday lunch and is just mamma/granny for all those who are invited. In one of the books about Charles the author describes the warm atmosphere in Camilla's kitchen when she cooked dinner for the family and when Camilla's husband Andrew came home he often found Charles sitting at the kitchen table while Camilla cooked, telling her of all his worries with Diana and receiving support.

I recall that I could immediately connect to this picture as I had already realised that an international superstar like Diana normally don't make an easy to please wife at home and while I knew next to nothing about Camilla back then I could imagine that it must have been something along this line of cozyness and support which gave Charles what he needed.

So, yes, she can cook but I guess she is normally too busy to do it herself but when the time is right, she cooks. IMHO, of course.
