'Harry, who was said to be the uneasiest about the relationship, later tells reporters, "She's always been very close to me and William...She's not the wicked stepmother. She's a wonderful woman and she's made our father very, very happy which is the most important thing."'

It's a nice sentiment. Glad to hear that they're all getting along.

Fer Pete's Sake! When are you guys gonna answer my question about the thumbs-up icon? Zonk and Benson both on the thread and nary a tweet. What will it take? I know...... I will begin talking about Diana and Charles and Camilla! There!

I think they were doing a three-some! How's that for fanciful - question is - will my question be answered?

How so? I thought this was about a serious as Harry gets.

I'm not sure it's the right thread to post this, but it's no more a "BRF current event" so...
Anyway it shows some kind of relation btw the Queen and her daughter in law:

That video doesn't seem to be working now. Either way, from what I have seen and read, it appears that the Queen and Philip get along well with Camilla. It would be hard not to because they seem to have a lot in common. I do recall reading that the Queen liked Camilla long before the marriage occurred, but I believe that was in the book "The Queen and Di" which didn't really have a positive image of Diana.

This is a lovely little video that shows how William feels about Camilla. It's about Charles and Camilla but you can see William's reaction towards her at the very end. I think it's too spontaneous to be "arranged."

If a picture speaks louder than a thousand words, then Prince William's actions have spoken even louder than Prince Harry's words. Bravo to both young men for living in the present instead of in the past, and for choosing positive emotions over negative ones.

William was actually standing there by himself, not talking to anyone, not near anyone - seems that he and Camilla were exchanging comments before she walked up to him. It does look very casual and natural - one of those moments that cannot be staged because at that point one simply cannot be endlessly aware of where the camera/video cameras are - could be a phone video, etc. They both seem agreeable here.

The 'stop-action' analysis of the kiss with Prince Charles I could have done without.

My guess is - Camilla is the equivalent in personal terms of 'easy on the eyes' (from all that is said about her and how she comes across in videos such as this). Translation: easy to like. Anyone who has had to deal with step-children in difficult circumstances knows that Camilla has stamina if nothing else.

It speaks well of what is to come, too. With a Queen Consort as welcoming and adept as Camilla, the 'court of King Charles' will be an amiable and inclusive one IMO. What a huge 'job' Camilla really has - I'd find it daunting - keeping on good terms with an extended family so various and complex - plus the public, yet she is doing it so far with such warmth, humor and good grace. Startling that she has been able to grow into her position with such success. Speaks to her maturity but also to some considerable natural skills and talents.

P.S. What strikes me when I see footage like this is how handy it really is to have a Lady-In-Waiting - kind of a Professional Friend - at one's elbow to chat with (or appear to chat with). Does Camilla have a Lady-In-Waiting that comes with her on her appearances?

You know something, I'm not even sure that she has any Ladies-In-Waiting period.

I think that the "court of King Charles" will be a necessary step to the changes that will occur during Prince William's eventual reign. I think that Prince Charles sees the need for the Monarchy to change with the times. Her Majesty sees it as well and she is adapting as much as she can but Prince Charles will take it a bit further and Prince William will take it even further yet. While I wish none of them any ill (or a shortened life), I am glad that I am young enough to more than likely live to see at least some of the changes that both Prince Charles and Prince William will make during their reigns.

William and Harry sure loved their mother and still miss her but she's dead and can't be brought back ::flowers princess di :: RIP, but their father remarried and she is now the woman who makes their father happy so they are happy for their father. Did the boys know that their mother and father weren't in love after a while?

I can't imagine that they didn't realize things had gone wrong. They were becoming young men before she died and it would have been impossible to hide what was being bandied about all over the press. Plus, I don't have a reliable link for it but I have read somewhere on a different thread (I think) that Diana had developed the bad habit of confiding her problems with Prince Charles to Prince William. If so, that is a bad thing for any divorcing parent to do to a child. The kids shouldn't have to take sides. But even if she didn't do that, I believe that the boys were simply too old to not see that there were serious issues between their parents.

From what I have read here and there, Camilla has apparently tried to be more of a friend to the young Princes rather than a step-mother. Bravo to her for all the effort she has made to avoid even the slightest hint that she intends to try to take Diana's place in any respect. Not too many women are that sensitive to and respectful of other people's feelings. I admired a great many things about Princess Diana but I find that I also admire Camilla. Regardless of whether she is given the title of Queen Consort or not, I think she will be a terrific aid to Prince Charles when he becomes King.
