I would think she cooks for her other family on a regular basis and even cooks fare she and Charles love whenever she can. Tom credits her with teaching him how to cook!

I'm sorry if this is a stupid question, but who's Tom?

I wonder what prompted Mr. Parker Bowles to publish his article in Daily Mail. This paper is known for publishing unfavourable articles about his mother. Are more serious papers interested in his literary aspirations? In my opinion, his style of narration greatly likens to that of Mr. Anthony Bourdain (see Anthony Bourdain - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia).

Tom writes a column in Daily Mail (or rather, in its sister paper The Mail on Sunday), so it is hardly a surprise he was published there. Both of his books, E Is For Eating - An Alphabet of Greed and The Year of Eating Dangerously enjoyed quite considerable success and were widely reported in quite a few newspapers, and not only in Britain. I remember reading a very long and favourable article on The Year of Eating Dangerously in a leading Australian newspaper while I was there on vacation.

I found this on one quick search there are many more some more accurate than others. -------
Below is a short summary of the first fourteen generations of the ancestry of the current [2006] Princess of Wales (styled "HRH The Duchess of Cornwall"), using the standard Kekule method of ancestor-numbering (compiled by William Addams Reitwiesner)

Thank you for the link, Skydragon. I didn't realise how many Scottish ancestors Camilla actually has. And some of the great families included. Plus I saw that she has lots of ancestors from the "Baronetage, quite some the first Baronets with high military titles, so honoured with their titles for their service for their country. An ancestry to be proud of!

[my bolding] off-topic but humorous gossip follows:
The late Sir Ian Potter was a very well known and even more generous philanthropist to a wide range of organisations in Australia.

The family name was somewhat tarnished however when his step-daughter, Primrose, was all set to marry an Australian-Egyptian "prince" in a lavish wedding in Venice when the groom eloped with the best man. No surprise really, since they had been living together for some time in Sydney.

Not to worry, after this unfortunate embarrassment and public ridicule, Primrose found herself an Australian-Polish count and is now happily Countess Krasicki.

There's definitely a family resemblance in that first picture. Thanks for this...I'd not seen a pic of Mr. Shand before.

Hi Fitzgerald,

Was it common knowledge at Osborne House that Camilla was a descendant of Thomas Cubitt who built the house? Or was that only revealed when she visited with Charles?
Best Wishes,

Hello Bella Fay.

Hello Bella Fay,

No it wasn't common knowledge that Camilla was a descendant of Thomas Cubitt, now of course it is!. I've discovered since last Friday that some people were aware of that fact, but the majority (including myself) weren't,

Best Wishes,

Fitzgerald
