Thank you Iceflower for these updates! As much as we seem to like to complain about how much/little the BRF works, it's disappointing that no one has anything to say on this this thread as the DOC appears the last two days.
I'm happy anytime anyone is out looking at and promoting the Arts.

At first I was surprised to see Camilla at such a high-profile national event on her own, but she looked very comfortable. Her outfit sparkled a bit in the candlelight too.

Thank you.

Yes, it is clear that Camilla is now very comfortable in her royal role, and is able to carry out high profile engagements like this with grace.

The Tomb of the Unknown Warrior/Soldier (I've heard it referred to by both terms) just looks stunning w/the respective floral emblems of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland bordering it.

The commemorations may have also had a very personal meaning to the Duchess of Cornwall, as her family lost 3 brothers during the Great War, her great-uncles. Her own father himself was a distinghuised military, decorated for bravery and gallantry in the following World War.

As the next Queen Consort she was a very appropriate choice to represent the Queen and if people have a problem with her then they need to get over it. So one person thought she was the wrong choice and wrote to the Times about it. One person out of a population of how many million in the UK?

Everyone is unpopular with some section of the population and there will always be someone who will complain.

That's the shortest and lamest article I have seen in the Mail, ever. Heads will roll over being reduced to quoting one reader's letter in The Times, not to mention the dearth of photos to support her.

I am guessing all the feeble, anti-Camilla, DM reporters were following Catherine and 99.999% of the thousands of photo's taken by the media herd were binned as surplus to requirements.
