Yes she did....hate be the one to tell you that.
Let's have a little bit of proof shall we? When did HM The Queen say, "Hello All, Don't bother to curtsey to me anymore - I'm only the Queen and it'll save the wear on your corsets" ?

She may have pointed out that people were not curtseying etc and so to give an option wouldn't look like a snub to her, but a choice that you had anyway. But I missed the Letters Patent that commanded all who hear it that they need not show deference to the Sovereign.

I find it most interesting to think respect only needs to go one way when another person's future head of state visits another country.

But when certain people visit their country, it seems NO respect or deference should be shown...

I thought it worked both ways....stupid yankee me....

I think Ennyllorac's post is proof enough.

I noticed that The Today Show referred to her as "Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall", echoing the divorced form of "Diana, Princess of Wales." They obviously don't read this forum or they'd know better!

Here is a link (you can copy to your address line) about their visit to Ground Zero earlier. There is also a video on the CNN website.

Camilla does look wonderful. Her new lighter hair (the color, that is) is very pretty. And she does look very good in jewel tones.

Re:

Those two obviously have no lives. To think that they actually sat down and thought about doing it. To protest for a woman they never met. What good did they do? Did they think that Charles and Camilla would care less? Did they think that Diana was going to pop down with a harp and start dancing with John Travolta again? Charles is reported to have said after leaving the USA the last time, "Never Again" - I wish he'd stuck to it and not bothered.

Lady Marmalade has proven herself to be nothing but charming and open minded. She realizes the reality of the situation and thinks rationally. The Queen would not post anything on the official website if it did not follow official protocal. It is not mandatory to bow or curtsey it is simply the traditional way of showing respect. I agree those people need to move on who protest the visit but that is there problem.

I think you have. I may have been strong in some of my wording, but I have not once insulted your country, the way your goverment is set up, and I have not called any British person by a slang or derogatory word.

Not in public posting but certainly in PM so let's not go down that lane shall we?

The picketers do not represent N.Y or America for that matter. I think that they really have to much time on their hands, and they need to get lives. I hope charles and Camilla have a wonderful visit.

Well I was sorry to miss Camilla and Charles. I think Camilla's outfit looks smashing and actually even like her hair! I like the windblown effect. The necklace is stunning!

Thanks everyone for posting pictures. :)

I really like Camilla's necklace as well. Does anyone know if it is something new or just not seen much before?
