I thought she shows to the Captain the size of a salmon she fished in the river Dee...

Camilla names the Queen Victoria liner - Telegraph

Charles made the ship's officers smile when he spotted a picture of himself on the bridge, depicting a visit to the QE2 he made in 1968, aged just 20.
"Gosh, is that me?" he said. "I look awful".

You must not be a prophet to know today´s top stories of the D.... Mail and co...It saves much of time to ignore these kind of boring journalism...
________________
The Duchess christens Queen Victoria

It was perhaps fortunate that christening planners had Plan B in effect; as the ritual bottle of Champagne lay flat on the hull just beyond the giant V for Victoria, a young crew member on deck whipped out a spare and did the honors successfully by hand, the old fashioned way.

I'm positively impressed by Camilla's appearance.
The outfit was perfect and the colour suited the Duchess very much. It was pretty 'Queenly', and it did remind me of the outfits, worn by the late Queen Mother, and the Queen herself.
I'm not yet sure about the headpiece. I need to get used to it.

What does that mean: 20-a-day baritone? Baritone is okay, but what does the expression 20-a-day mean? Thank you for an explaination.

The reporter is claiming Camilla's "booming" voice sounds like a baritone who smokes twenty cigarettes a day. The tone of the article is somewhat negative and bitchy, eg "the curse of Camilla", "the voices of doom were quick to draw significance...", "a Duchess's unfortunate few seconds."

Thank you, Warren. I wasn't sure if it refered to 20 cigarettes or 20 glasses of whisky.... LOL.

As for bitchy, well, the duchess has still way to go till she is as untouchable as HM or the late QM. But she will end up on the pedestral, you'll see!

The Duchess names the Queen Victoria luxury liner in Southampton

The Duchess of Cornwall named a new luxury liner after The Prince of Wales’s great-great-great grandmother today.

So the bubbly failed to smash, rather than the curse of Camilla, the headline should read 'The curse that will now be upon the idiot who failed to set up the machine at the correct distance and angle'!

The QE2 has been in the news 3 times in the last 4 years for norovirus, so I don't think we need to worry about an unsmashed bottle bringing bad luck.

Camilla follows in Queen's footsteps with luxury liner launch

In a signal honour usually reserved for the Queen, the Duchess of Cornwall presided over the unveiling of shipping giant Cunard's newest ₤300-million liner Queen Victoria on Monday.

Elegant in a pale blue coat dress and striking hat Camilla was all smiles as she arrived at the Southampton docks, clearly mindful of having been tasked with a very special role.
Watched by her husband Charles and a 2000-strong VIP audience, the royal went on push to a button sending a bottle of Veuve Clicquot against the flank of the spectacular 16-deck cruiser.

Even the failure of the bottle of bubbly to smash couldn't take the shine off the occasion. As the Prince of Wales led the clapping his wife's smile didn't falter, and moments later another bottle was successfully broken over the side.

Pictures:

Wonderful looking Camilla, with Prince Charles behind her

These articles postively annoy me; the "Curse of Camilla"--what rubbish!

Now HE looks as if he is having trouble not touching! You can almost hear him muttering, 'I wonder what that one does', 'they have changed that since my day' or 'Dare I'!

Sorry, I think she looks matronly and with a flower pot on her head. Charles just looks idiotic.. like the cat that swallowed the canary. Well, they both got their wish. Hope they are happy now. I will retire now, along with GillW, and get on with my life.
