Considering her dedication to literacy, it seems a great pairing for her

Yes, Camilla certainly 'took no prisoners' as far as Diana was concerned.

Ah yes, Kathy Lette the Australian who for years on holidays back home lost no opportunity to poke fun at the British she mixed with as Geoffrey Robertson's wife. It's true, Camilla has taken on some worthwhile causes and good on her for doing so, but don't lets pretend that she is some kind of feminist icon.

I do have my feelings as a Diana fan and I don't consider Camilla is a feminist.
However, looking at the photographs accompanying the article, I do see a woman talking to these accomplished female guests who appears natural, engaged, interested. She seems to be exchanging more than pleasantries and a few platitudes and, thank God, there are no exaggerated facial expressions or wooden demeanour, nor have any stilted conversational titbits been reported. Please Kate, take note!

Diana, love her or hate her, sinner or saint, has been dead for nearly 19 years. Isnt it time to let it rest already?

Whatever she did in the past, Camilla has shown a real dedication to her patronages. She is engaged, interested and interacting on a genuine level, whether you see her in a room of women or a room of kids. She has done a lot for the causes of osteoporosis, children's literacy, and in this case, empowering women who are victims of domestic abuse. In her nearly eleven years of marriage, Camilla has shown to be a hard worker and willing to pull her weight as the consort of the POW.

All I can say to Camilla's little rescue dogs is....run Just in case mummy got inspired to weave a scarf for her husband using your hair Though I guess her short haired doggies likely don't have much to worry about.

She visited the LCO on May 4th and today she shows her continued support to the organization by displaying their logo on her bag while attending the BBC Radio 2.

The DM's favorite headline for the Duchess of Cornwall.

Trying to make her sound like a knife wielding maniac much I guess the reasonable thing to would have been to ask for a plastic butter knife to cut the cake with. I mean a big cake knife was over kill.

Fortunately no one seemed terrified. She was engaged, and everyone around her seems in good mood. And happy to have her support of it.
