I like the way the wind styles her hair for her.

The wind restores her hair to its natural part. It is giving her hints that she should part it on the side.

The Queen hasn't changed her style for decades, neither did the Queen Mother and neither has Princess Anne. Camilla has found what suits her and what suits her position.

Good on her. Better that there's no focus on her style than that her clothes constantly upstage the work she and the Prince do.

You can have a "style " but still update it.
Why would being dressed in a current style upstage Charles ?

If the press reports are concentrating on what the person is wearing they aren't reporting on the message or issue the person is supporting.


With The Queen, Camilla and Anne the reports are usually on the charity or the issue and not on the clothes.


With Kate, the emphasis in the reports is on what she is wearing and not on the causes - however if she set a 'standard' style and just changed the colours that emphasis would change to the issues rather than the clothes.

Couldn't disagree with you more concerning Kate her causes are well known at her engagements
Camilla doesn't have to be a fashion Queen but an update would be good

Whenever I read about Kate going on an engagement the focus of the article is on her clothes not her causes - what causes she supports - I don't know anyone who could name one but they can tell you what she wore to a range of engagements - because that is what the media reports.


Does Kate even have any causes she supports?


Camilla, on the other hand, wears the same style and so the only thing the media can report on is why she is there so the literacy or rape crisis or animal shelter gets the focus of any reports and that is the whole reason why she dresses the way she does - to have the media focus on her causes not her fashion choices.

Why are we trashing Kate in a thread about Charles and Camilla?

I will never understand why fans of certain members of the royal family feel the need to continually bash the other members of the family as a means of making their favourite look better.

I believe the criticism is not about Kate but the media reporting of royal engagements.

Rob Royal then asked:

I then made a comment about the fact that reports about Kate's engagements focus on her clothes while the media reports Camilla's issues and causes because her style doesn't change.

Some people have seen that as an attack on Kate - which is wasn't - it was an attack on the media that don't tell us about Kate and her causes but what she wears ad infinitum.

Why ? it's a style she's comfortable with, it suits her and she's always appropriatley dressed. Camilla is not a brand or a software and doesn't need some "update" to do her work : supporting the Prince of Wales, her country and the British Monarchy.

I don't think so. The suggestion seems to be that Kate, unlike Camilla, varies her wardrobe therefore ensuring that the coverage is of her clothes as opposed to the issues she's involved with. That she deliberately goes out of her way to make it all about her outfits whereas if she didn't all the media reports would be about children's hospices and addiction.

The idea that Camilla occasionally trying something new with her wardrobe would somehow overshadow the PoW is crazy. Given the lack of coverage of their events, surely a bit of extra interest, even in her wardrobe, is better than almost no coverage at all.

Let's not get into a debate about clothes, particular royal ladies and the media. If you want to discuss fashion, do so in the fashion forum.

Further posts on the matter will be removed at moderator discretion.

The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall have attended a drinks reception for embassy staff at the British Ambassador’s Residence in Washington. It marks the start of official engagements on their 4 day visit to the United States, where they will promote the UK’s partnership with America in areas such as climate change and corporate responsibility-

I have to say, I'm very impressed that the President meets so many of the BRF when they visit Washington. First William and now C&C. I don't think any other heirs or second-in-lines are given that opportunity. It really is a very nice gesture.

For people who may not know Congressman John Lewis, he is a hero of the U.S. civil rights movement and marched with the Rev. Martin Luther King.

That's one way to liven up a history lesson! High school students are stunned to run into Prince Charles and Camilla in Washington as he is mobbed by fans-

It touches my heart to see the American people embrace Charles and Camilla, especially the young people.

PetticoatLane, I can really tell President & Mrs. Obama are very fond of the royal family.

US Royal Watcher, Congressman John Lewis is a true hero in Congress and in our Country.

He was on The Daily Show w/John Stewart not that long ago in connection w/the Selma Commemorations. Highly recommend finding and watching the episode online if you can. Congressman Lewis is an American National Treasure IMO. :)

Poor Camilla yesterday. It's one thing to deal w/being on display after a long plane ride, but to come out looking your best only for Mother Nature to wreck havoc...Give her credit for seeing the humour in it. :)
