Go figure Camila should have worn this color to the ground zero site instead of the Pink suit. & worn a Bright color to the Dinner in Washington. Instead she looks frumpy at the Dinner at the White House. Another Blown save ( a Baseball term) for her stylist people.

New Yorkers don't always even wear black to commemoration ceremonies. I bet Laura got a surprise when Camilla showed up in darks tonight. It made Laura stand out more. She's not the type of First Lady to like to stand out. Maybe she saw Camilla's dress from the commemoration?

Oh well, I'm looking forward to the next step on the tour. Did they decide whether to go to New Orleans or not?

I have read that he did not recognize Mrs Reagan in his speech. She was apparently invited as a special gesture to honor her and her husbands various meetings with the Royal family. I hope the reports are not correct and that he did indeed her.

Camilla looks very elegant and stylish. Although I must admit i'm a bit "tired" of seeing that necklace.:p Laura's dress is quite beautiful!

These photos are quite strange and funny. It seems Prez. Bush and Camilla are the only ones with "normal" facial expressions ready for the pictures.

I just watched the toasts given on CNN.

I loved Prince Charles's. He made refererene to this bringing back many happy memories to his visit in the past...I held my breath thinking he was going to say in 1985, and then he mentioned in 1970 when he and the Princess Royal stayed the weekend as guests of the Nixons.

And then he said...and this was hysterical...."at the time when the press was trying to marry me off to Tricia Nixon. It still seems to be the case with my eldest son." He then gave a nod to the Bush twins and continued, "It must be hereditary."

What a funny moment to watch.

I still think she looks better than Camilla. Cammy looked the part of the frump, certainly, at that dinner. Hopefully, Mrs. Bush gave her some tips.

charles asks US to lead on planet

this part of the toast was on the bbc news this morning, (that is what west europeans find important) Much of the world looks to the US for a lead on the most crucial issues that face our planet;Prince Charles has told its president George Bush. In a post-dinner toast at the White House the prince said to Mr Bush:Truly the burden of the world rests on your shoulders; http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/4398352.stm

As a side note, politely suggesting that some posters should get lost is maybe not the most brillant start.

The press coverage in the UK is positive and courteous and she gets thumbs up for her (rather odd and OTT IMHO) style but from what I read, American are rather more apathic that anything else. And so are most British people.
I'm sorry if I offended you. :o If we are honest, if I went on to a site for the ex hrh, rubbishing her, they would suggest I went on to a site more appropriate to my views. I find the constant snipeing at Camilla, depressing. She is the wife of the heir to the British throne and will be a wonderful queen.

I havn't been a member for long, but have visited the site for some time, I decided to wait and see how anti Camilla you all were.

I didn't agree with the demonstrations against your president when he was in this country, I don't remember what they were about, it's a matter of good manners. I certainly don't agree with someone stalking a woman who married for love.:(

I like Camilla's style, chic rather than the moments fashion. A lot of her outfits don't photograph well but, she has never dressed for the press.
It has been nice seeing all the photo's on here though.

Good Show!

I think The Duchess of Cornwall has looked absolutely Brilliant! I am so happy for both of them. They look so happy and at ease with each other. Boo to the NY Paper...so childish...As usual papers seem to create news now than report it. I think the papers were hoping for more protest..now that they don't have it they have to fall back on insults. My local news anchor was great and said just let them be..time to move on..

I for one thinks she has looked and carried herself well. Lets be honest...Diana will remain enternally beautiful..she is never going to age...I for one as a 42 year old woman find hope in Camilla...You can age gracefully. Perhaps there's hope for me

No offence Skydragon, hence the yellow smiley in my previous post.
I understand what you mean, but these forums, as I see them, are not fan-clubs, rather open spaces to discuss several perspectives. Finding only positive and admirative remarks on this tread would make it boring and sleepy (and anyway there is also a lot of Diana bashing going on, in Diana's treads or in C&C treads). To be honest, I think these forums are remarkably pro-Camilla. Just count the number of Camilla avatars. I am not a fan of her but I feel the need the watch what I write because of her fan base here.

Re:

From Hello!

Quote:
The 58-year-old seems to have found an unexpected ally, however, in the form of chat show host Joan Rivers, who is generally known for her stinging criticisms of other celebrities' outfits. "Camilla is one of the world's best dressed women and it's ridiculous to suggest otherwise," affirmed the presenter. "It's not about what you wear, it's about how you wear it and she pulls it off every time. As us New Yorkers say, she's got it."
Wonderrful comments from Joan - and let's face it, she can be very harsh!

A Scientific Survey!

As one who keeps a running tab on such details, I have conducted a quick survey of this page and the previous 10 pages of this thread.

NB.. only avatars of British Royals have been counted, and only those used by individual Members (and not the number of posts).

The results are:
Camilla: 4
Diana: 3
Lovers Knot Tiara: 1
Queen Victoria: 1
Prince Harry: 1

I have added the tiara (as it belonged to the late Princess) to the Diana avatars, and placed VRI and Harry in the neutral corner (but opposite to each other as Harry may be a tad too rowdy for the old Queen).

This calculation gives 4 and 4. Equal!
A perfect balance, an equilibrium, a ying and a yang!

If anyone wishes for a more formal survey of avatar usage throughout the entire British Forums, I am open to offers of a Research Grant.

:) W
