I think this is my favourite photo of the royal couple ever.
That really is a little corker! Camilla looks like "I've done this a thousand times before" and Charles looks like a typical man, "I can do this on my own!" when he should have been saying "help!". But he was either too proud or too embarrassed to take up her offer of her spectacles.

Still, we now know one thing that Camilla carries in her handbag!

I love that shade of blue. The Duchess looked fabulous. Charles needed to push his glasses up just a tad. They looked like they were going to fall off any minute .

He looks like one of them old crabby librarians with his glasses on the tip of his nose... ;-)

Maybe this is why Charles dislikes having to wear glasses?

While looking at the picture, I also thought of the kids I student taught with last year. They had visual impairments, and those who wore glasses tended to look over them rather than through them. I know I do that too for reasons I cannot fathom. Wonder if Charles has the same issue? Nonetheless, the picture does remind me of a librarian (actually, one reference librarian at my local library has the tendency to wear his glasses like that).

It reminds me of Dumbledore from the Harry Potter movies,I think it looks very cute :-)
I donīt see anything wrong with looking like a librarian when you deliver a good speech,at least everyone will believe you can read and you are smart and educated!

Oh, I have tremendous respect for librarians (my Godmother was a librarian, and a very close friend works as a library associate). I think Charles pulls the look off very well (and he's intelligent also). Now that you mention it though, I do see a little bit of Dumbledore in that picture too.

Methinks this is the dress that Camilla wore to the wedding reception of W&K at BP, and first wore in Portugal earlier this year.

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall broke into dance during a tour of the paradise spice island of Zanzibar, despite 90F (32C) heat and a crush of onlookers.

They could also be reading glasses perched on the tip so when he looks down, he can read print easily but have normal vision when looking up. LOL, I'm a librarian who wears reading glasses on the tip of her nose and have the same habit, but am certainly not crabby (well, not all the time )! And I like to think they make me look smart, too.
