I wonder why the DOC doesn't curtsy in front of Their Majesties. Beside The fact that Their Majesties is the reigning monarch, they both are much senior royal than the DOC. I think she suppose to curtsy right?

You are right!
The dress and the scarf are light pink!

I have only seen still photos and no video showing the actual meeting so maybe she curtsied and we just don't have any photos of it.

I would expect her to curtsy to reigning monarchs.

I truely believe that Camilla is too polite to fail to pay her respects in the appropriate manner. Everywhere she has been before with the POW she has been the perfect wife and partner. IMO she would never let him down in such a rude and disrespectful way.

The Prince of Wales has revealed details of an ambitious scheme to save the world's rainforests during a state visit to Brunei.

BBC NEWS | World | Asia-Pacific | Prince presents rainforest plan


BRITAIN'S Prince Charles arrived in Indonesia today in a visit to promote the preservation of forests and encourage interfaith dialogue in the world's largest Muslim-majority nation.

I just have to say, Charles has gotten better looking with time! He is much more distinguished, relaxed, and elegant now. I also admit I like a man with a little gray in his hair--

I am not sure but I believe Muslims Monarchs don't expect a long curtsy from anyone.

( I wonder why the Prince does not need glasses for reading, or is he only to vain to show it in public? ...)

This could be it, but I don't profess to know. I am, however, sure that the proper course would have been ascertained and adopted by Camilla, who would not embarrass Charles by failing to observe protocol.

Camilla's skin and hair look really nice, but I don't think that she should "do" ruffles on her bodice. I have a similar shape; and although I'm about 15 years younger, I gave up ruffles a long time ago.

Thank you giov and milla Ca for todays picks, a lovely selection once again. Perhaps Charles does not need glasses for reading, many don't, Camillas look rather nice I thought. At the very least she is not doing a Dame Edna.

I like them, they add a little flair to a plain neckline, IMO. You would hate my collection of Jabot blouses then, they put ruffles in the shade!

Britain's Prince Charles, a long-time champion of 'green' causes, singled out Brunei's Heart of Borneo (HoB) initiative for special praise, on its determination to protect the standing rainforest that covers more than 60 per cent of the country

Although curtsy is not Muslim's tradition, but I think curtsy is a royal code to show your respect. Usually in Muslim especially Malay world, curtsy is followed by kissing hand. Even the Queen of Malaysia curtsy to Sultan Bolkiah and Queen Saleha of Brunei. So I guess DOC should curtsy in front of both of them.

Really, I'd say the exact opposite. Camilla has gotten better looking with age though.

Thank you Banda-windsor, I have never seen those pictures of the Princess before. :)

Camilla really does look splendid, doesn't she?

If only it weren't for the lines around her mouth from years of smoking, which are in no way attractive or flattering...

Other than that Camilla is looking quite good nowadays.
