Too funny. I like the image of a slightly buzzed Camilla fangirling over Kelsey, and grabbing at his behind. Never underestimate the power of a contact high for a fangirl.

Osteoporosis or from horse riding?

http://stars.topnews.in/sites/defaul...a-duchess8.jpg

Are these bulging shoulders from osteoporosis or horse riding?

Any horse riders on the forum?

(Hope this type of question can be asked.)

Suggested hairstyle for Camilla

Do not know if this is the correct place for this...

Camilla has very fine hair which she curls and blow dries to make it look fuller.

She should cut her to one length and take a chapter out of Mary Berry's book.

This is simply awesome!
A fan of Camilla, who runs a blog dedicated to her, got a cool reply from the Duchess of Cornwall, after writing to and telling her about her tumblr blog!

Check out here her response (already widely spread on twitter)!

This makes me believe some of the royals do read forums and blogs!

Thanks Marty! Recently I had a discussion about royals and reading the forums and blog with my sister by another mother and she believes that sometimes the royals can and do read this stuff and I was of the opinion that they don't.

Now I have to eat a crumpet and drink a cup of tea and admit a wee bit that I was umm.... not so right about the issue.

IMO royals read some "big forums or blogs" about them to check on the monarchists and royal watchers mood and opinions. I would even get far and say that I believe that sometimes royals make pr-wise decisions according to what they read... maybe some of the "grey men" or royals themselves are members of forums... who knows

But I am digressing...

Re Camilla: I think she bothered to check on the blog after she was told about it because she cares... I don't think she had read it before, but everything is possible at this point...

We need bumblebees or honeybees as they are known in some parts of the world. Well done DOC for this awareness and fund raising.

I think she just laughs at her own "horrible photos" as she comes across as a person with a sense of humor and irony... But I'm pretty sure she likes that blog too...

I'm not entirely convinced royals spend any time reading online blogs about themselves. They maybe aware of such things but I don't see it happening.

They certainly don't read comments. The comments section of the DM is absolutely meaningless. Anonymous users from all over the world, using multiple accounts to troll people.

For every positive comment there will be 100 negative ones. You'd drive yourself bonkers.

My post was about Camilla reading a blog about her, after she was told about it by a fan... It was a nice gesture that she minded to have a look

That's awesome indeed - thanks for sharing. What a wonderful surprise for the blogger! Camilla isn't my favourite royal but it's when royals do things like this that make me smile. It shows they really do care, despite what some people may think.

Now I have a vision of Camilla sitting behind the computer screen with a mug of hot tea scrolling through TRF.

A close friend of mine went to a Buckingham Palace Garden Party this summer and met the DOC. This lady has significant medical training and told me that she was immensely pleasant but 'tiny' and looked 'frail'. I sincerely hope that The DOC is okay.

What diagnosis did she offer for this? I'm curious because "tiny" is genetic and frail can mean many things.

Camilla is involved with Osteoporosis as one of her charities. I'm quite confident as a result of her learing from this work that she is taking measures to guard against this category of female frailty.

I believe Camilla is involved with osteoporosis because her mother and maternal grandmother both died of osteoporosis. While genetics aren't the only factor, I'm pretty sure there is a genetic risk as well, so Camilla is probably more likely to suffer from it at some point as she ages.

I think in general, Camilla has had more health problems than her-in-laws of a similar age. She had a hysterectomy in 2007, and broke her leg a few years back as well.
