I completely agree with you CasiraghiTrio, as I usually do. There was no merit to come here and insult or reprimand anyone, as even the negative comments were tasteful. I have full confidence in our mods that if anyone here went too far in opinions then their comments would be deleted, but the mods seem fine with all of our comments, and as the person that started the superficial discussion of Laura's appearance, I appologize for starting such a meaningless conversation.

My apologies CasiraghiTrio and randomlykeira. But for the record, I did not say anyone was insulting Laura. I did infer that the some of the posts were using the same "critical standards" as those used when judging CP's or CP's-inwaiting, and that that was unfair. At no time did I, nor would I, yell.

I have to say I agree with you. She is not a member of the Royal Family and the unkind comments were over the top from some posters, who seem to have chosen to use the daughter as a means to insult the mother..... very sad.

I find Laura delightful!

It's cool MARG, I think it was just a misunderstanding...

Well actually, I was becoming uncomfortable with the direction the thread was heading and I quite understand where Marg was coming from. We have seen it in the Beatrice threads, the Sarah Ferguson threads, and to a degree in the Kate Middleton threads. Worst though were the gratuitous insults flung Beatrice's way, and all mostly based on her appearance, ie her clothes and weight. The degree of judgement and condemnation based on the superficial was not only surprising but worrying because of the bitchy tone and the degree of enjoyment some members were obviously having at Beatrice's expense. Not quite the feeding frenzy, but along those lines.

Some discussions take on a tone, and when the tone turns to the gleefully negative, as it has elsewhere, it is cause for concern. This thread hadn't reached that stage, but it was apparent to me, and evidently to some others, that the discussion was becoming too closely focussed on physical looks and appearance.

Quite right, Warren. That said, whilst Laura comes across as a lovely girl, she could improve the way she dresses - she always looks pregnant to me!!!

^^ I think after all the celebrities loosing their baby weight in the course of a week (a la Kidman), we've forgotten that some people hold baby weight longer than two months! Laura had Eliza in, what, January? She's actually a normal woman for that! I actually commend her for being a better mother than having a better figure. But she probably does need a few fashion classes (and NOT from Sara!)

Duchess of Cornwall and a new Sheriff in charge

The Prince of Wales, whose lavish 60th birthday celebrations finally drew to a close last night, is not the only member of his extended family with something to cheer.

Mandrake learns that Prince Charles's stepdaughter, Laura Parker Bowles, has been told that her mother-in-law is to become a High Sheriff. Sarah Lopes, whose son, Harry, 31, married the Duchess of Cornwall's daughter two years ago, will be the unpaid enforcer of the Queen's writ in Devon, where her husband, George Lopes, has his family seat, Gnaton Hall.
"Camilla is delighted," says a friend of the Duchess. "She knew Sarah and George a long time before their son married Laura."
Laura, 30, who gave birth to a daughter, Eliza, in January, manages Eleven, the fashionable art gallery in Belgravia. Her husband, an Old Etonian former underwear model, is a City accountant who stands to inherit Gnaton Hall, near Plymouth, as well as the 3,000-acre Skelpick estate in the Highlands.

The Duchess of Cornwall is to become a grandmother again - and this time she is really going to have her hands full. For her daughter Laura is expecting twins.


It will be a third and fourth step-grandchild for Prince Charles.

Fantastic news, I am sure Camilla is very happy for the upcoming addition to the family.
Congratulations to Harry and Laura, as well as all the grandparents-to-be.

The Duchess spoke to every WI member there and told many of them her daughter was expecting twins." Camilla is known to dote on her grandchildren and on official foreign visits has bought them presents.
