I adore the fact that the Duchess visited the castle of her ancestors, that is wonderful planning. Not to mention, she looks like she is having a grand ole time on this visit to Canada. (Oh, and I love the polka dotted shirt!!)

Maybe it's due to the fact we rarely get much coverage of the royal couple over here, granted I do have this forum and another one I regularly visit that I can check for pictures and videos but I guess it's not really same anyways watching Charles and Camilla together the last few days down here in Canada has totally changed my attitude about them. I just adore them they are wonderful. Not only to the people who are there for them but together just as a couple they make a great team.

I'm still choked up about that little 7-year old boy who reached up to hug and kiss Camilla yesterday. He had lost his father in Afghanistan and was there with his mum and sister to see the royals. Charles and Camilla were very warm and gentle with him. How gracious.

She shook Prince Charles' hand and has the pictures to prove it. Maya Amoah, 13, saw the motorcade pull up the driveway of Dundurn Castle yesterday and squeezed her way to the front of the crowd of several hundred and was able to touch royalty.

Paul Cheeseman was pleasantly surprised when he offered the Duchess of Cornwall a hard hat and she graciously accepted

Prince Charles delighted a Canadian crowd, gathered outside Niagara College at Niagara on the Lake, Ontario. They were hoping for a glimpse but got some conversation and a chance to shake his hand.

The Duchess of Cornwall came face to face with one of her illustrious Canadian forebears as she courted controversy by wearing another item of fur.

The whereabouts of a coral necklace said to ward off evil spirits that adorned the neck of the Duchess of Cornwall's great-great grandmother aren't known, but the royal couple are sure of one thing.

Where is Camilla's great-great grandmother's magic necklace? 'Not with us' - Yahoo! Canada News

The Prince of Wales praised the ''courage, service and sacrifice'' shown by Canadian forces over the decades as he presented two regiments with new colours.

I snuck up to Hamilton and Toronto to see Their Royal Highnesses. Here are some of my pictures: (1 and 2 are from their arrival at the dinner at the Carlu, so I was probably right behind bweir. 3, 4, and 5 are from Dundurn Castle in Hamilton. 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 are from the presentation of colours at Varsity Stadium.)

beautiful pictures wbenson.
You are ever so lucky. I think the coat is horrendous and she should not have worn it anyway.

Thank you all for the wonderful selection of personal photos and other photos. I agree with Nico & lumutqueen, the use of fur is very poor taste!

I got to shake hands with her, and we had a very short exchange after I welcomed her to Toronto.


Here are my photos from the morning event in Toronto -- the opening of the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair. Click on either photo for a full gallery. :)

Judging by your great pics, wbenson, I don't think we've been more than 10 feet away from each other at the Carlu, Dundurn Castle OR Varsity Stadium!

Although I don't think I've ever been more tired than I am at this exact moment, I'm trying to get my pictures from yesterday up as soon as possible. LOL! Here are my photos from yesterday's event at Dundurn Castle. Click on the photo for more. :)

Wonderful photos everyone thanks for sharing your experience. I have a question to those who have waited outside, how early should I get down there in order to get a good view of Camilla, I want to atleast be able to see her even if I can't shake her hand. And I'm pretty short to begin with so if people are in front of people it will make it worse. Should it be more then half an hour before she gets there?
