Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall to visit India and Sri Lanka, November 2013

Commonwealth Secretariat - Statement from Commonwealth Secretary-General following Buckingham Palace announcement

It has been announced that The Queen will be represented by The Prince of Wales at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting this year.

This decision reflects the wish of Her Majesty at this time in her reign to limit her long distance travel.

Its interesting that they have chosen to visit India again, given the number of times they have been in the last decade.

I'm guessing and hoping that The Duchess stops before or after the trip at that spa she has been to several times in the past. Remember how great she looked after the last stopover there? Now if she'd just hold a drawing for those of us here at the forums to win a golden ticket to go along with her.

I think Camilla will spend a few days at a spa. Usually she needs time to feel good in a country with warm climate

I remember all too well how she looked after spending the time at that spa. She radiated and glowed and looked like a million bucks! If I could afford something like that, I'd be on the next plane out.

I like AdmirerUS's idea of a sweepstakes. Now if we could just find a rich sponsor.....

I am glad they were there for the aarthi..

I wanna give a brief idea for you of this ceremony, which I witnessed a few years ago..It was totally amazing.
Basically, aarthi is the part of every Hindu worship, where the concerned God/Goddess is offered the sacred fire..
The River Ganga has a very sacred place in Hindu culture and mythology.
According to mythology, ages ago people were suffering from drought and dying. The noble sage Bhagiratha does a lot of tapas (yogic meditation) to please The Gods, and when they are pleased, he is granted a boon by Goddess Ganga, who stays in Swarg (heaven). He pleads her to come to earth and quench the thirst of the people on earth. Thus, to fulfill that boon, Goddess Ganga descends on earth and turns the land green and fertile, making the people happy and prosperous.
Thus this aarti is a worship to Her for all the prosperity she has given them..

A few more pics taken on normal days..(Since today there was more security I guess it was scaled down..)
