I hope this book is better than the catalogue to the Windsor Castle exhibition published by Royal Collection Enterprises. That book despite claiming to cover Prince Charles's life up to 2008 has 3 photos of Diana (mainly with the children) and absolutely no photographs of Camilla - not even one of the lovely wedding photos!! It's as if the Palace officials are trying to wipe Camilla from the record of Prince Charles's life

I should think that every 'palace official', is well aware of the importance of Camilla in Charles' life, past, present and most important - future. It is after all only a catalogue that you are talking about, not even a book.

I´ve visited the exibition at Windsor Castle two weeks ago and the weeding pic of Charles & Camilla is one of the biggest there and it is placed where nobody can ignore it.
Fortunately the times are over where palace officials or somebody else can disregard Camilla!

With the world facing economic meltdown, most families are in the process of tightening their collective belt.
But the Royal Family is no ordinary family.
They seem to have decided that this is no time to be cancelling a good party. Or two

What credit crunch? Prince Charles is having not one but TWO lavish 60th birthday parties | Mail Online

-----------------------------------
They omit in the headline, that Charles would rather NOT have had the state banquet, just a party with his friends AND that none of it is being paid by the taxpayer!

Not only that. I downloaded the first version of this article which was posted on the Mail on Sunday website on 28th September. That is distinctly different from that which appeared on the front page of the Daily Mail newspaper on the 29th. For example in the original article is the comment in quotes made by a Clarence House source that: 'Camilla has worked extremely closely with the Queen and Michael (Fawcett) on the formal birthday dinner on November 13 which will be attended by the Prime Minister and around 170 other dignitaries and guests'. In the 29th September article the fact that Camilla & the Queen were working together on the formal party has been totally omitted. Also deleted is the fact that the Queen's diamond wedding anniversary party held last year in June was otganised by Michael Fawcett. What the Daily Mail inserted instead was a whole load of distorted misinformation such as the 'fact' that they went on a 12day winter cruise around the Caribbean - in fact a 10 day official Foreign-Office supported visit to 4 Commonwealth countries in the Caribbean in Spring.

How does one get chosen for this sort of thing? I would have thought that HRH would have pursuaded Kiri Te Kanawa to come out of retirement.

Yes, but talent is talent! My first Sarah Brightman concert was with the ex Peg Leg. MUCH better with Mr. Russo! I would think HRH would think so as well. . . .

OK, you twisted my pinkie, but only if she would sing "Dove Sono" from The Marriage of Figaro. One of my favorite operas.
