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

Very much this. What a stupid article.

Judging from the lack of follow up shock/horror headlines over Camilla's role in the WWI Centenary, I think we can safely say that a very large amount of anti-Camilla press is the result of the fertile minds of "Royal Correspondents".

Forgetting they are supposed to report the news instead of create it has never been better illustrated than the dismal DM attempt at stirring.

I was very impressed by the Duchess of Cornwall during the Vigil in Westminster. In fact I am usually always impressed by how the Duchess fulfills her royal activities.

Very good to see Camilla out and about again. There have been too few engagements over the last few months.

Zimbio calls her Camilla Parker-Bowles? *sigh* It's not like she's a newlywed.

That is just the search heading, they never changed it. In the text she is listed as Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

Well, technically that's wrong too. But it's better than Parker-Bowles. Baby Steps!

One day they might get it right. They either list her as still married to Andrew or as divorced from Charles but never with her title as Charles' wife.

Camilla, Duchess of Camilla is the form she would use if she was divorced - just as Diana went from HRH The Princess of Wales to Diana, Princess of Wales and Sarah went from HRH The Duchess of York to Sarah, Duchess of York when they were divorced.

Camilla seems to be becoming a regular on the literary circle now - Booker Prize, Hay Lit Fest, the Literacy charities. Its good they are giving her a few defined areas of interest to support.

Always pleasant to see Camilla out and about and she look very nice and approachable. Got herself a hug and kiss.

.

Today, October 15, the Duchess of Cornwall was in Kent today and visited Saint Ronan's School in Hawkhurst.
Camilla's late brother Mark Shand attended the school from 1959 - 1964. A new sports facility was named in memory of him.

Wacky stuff. The DM reported this today:
Duchess of Cornwall pleads with country to support credit unions | Daily Mail Online
But nothing announced on the POW website: http://www.princeofwales.gov.uk/news-and-diary . Also no tweets from Clence House - and the Duchess was at a Winery today (and so was I - who knew). https://twitter.com/ClarenceHouse

I bothered to check because I think putting the paycheck loan sharks out of business would be a great thing. Apologies to any forum members who work in a check-into-cash establishment, I just think interest rates that abuse the poor exclusively are not a very morally defensible.

So, I wonder if Rebecca's report in the DM has any truth to it? There is a wicked bit of my soul that hopes someone fed her a bit of bad fish and she still bit on it!

Clarence House tweets today: "Her Royal Highness is a strong supporter of #creditunions and the role they can play in their local communities" So it is true!

And from the POW site: Credit Unions

That's rather a diffrent statement than the DM spin on it. No surprise.
