Other than that Camilla is looking quite good nowadays.
The lines around the mouth, and there are very few, come from living, smiling and of course age.

Thank you for the pictures milla Ca, here comes the, for some, boring bit.

Twenty-six Bruneian students who have graduated from the University of Wales, Cardiff (UWIC) across a range of subjects, had a day to cherish Saturday (Nov1) as their degree award ceremony was honoured by the attendance of the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall who also presented the scrolls to the triumphant graduates

Smoking encourages the formation of vertical lines around the mouth, lines which entirely reflect those of the Duchess.

Take into account her age of course, but it would be green of anyone to overlook the influence of nicotine absorption and attribute these lines solely to living, smiling and age when they are characteristically associated with smoking...

Charles looks great in grey suits. Always playing with his cufflinks..hehe..an endering trait for me.

Less lines than many of my non smoking friends, but there you are, we must all be green (naive)!

Sun-bathing has quite an effect, too. I'm so glad that I wasn't an outdoorsy person.

I think Camilla looks better than she used to. She's not a beautiful woman, but I've been impressed by how nice her hair and clothing look nowadays. She looks the part of a prince's wife. Yes, Camilla has quite a few wrinkles, but if she's escaped from years of smoking with only wrinkles, that's something she should be thankful for.

Yes, that's a good point about the smoking.

Camilla might not be a classically beautiful woman, but she has the most wonderful smiling eyes. A beautiful exterior might be desirable, but it's what's inside that makes a person good company and a loyal friend and supportive wife. The smile in those eyes can't be faked. It must be contagious too, since Charles now has the same look.

Camilla's done what she needed to do to look the part of the future King's wife, and she always looks good, IMO.

Congratulations to Prince Charles for his untiring work for the preservation of the environment. He's worked hard over the years to be in a position now where people from all walks of life are listening to him.

Yes, that is a contributing factor I must admit. The townies among my friends, (the ones who saw a bit of mud on their shoes and had the vapours) do seem to have aged, on the whole better than the country set. However with the ozone getting weaker and the sun getting stronger, the youngsters nowadays will have greater problems. IMO. I'm sure many posting on here will hope to escape the ravages of time, 99.9% of them will fail!

Visiting Prince Charles, who arrived here on Sunday, made the appeal during observation tour of the Indonesian Rain Forest Ecosystem Restoration park in Bungku village, Batanghari district

This is the visit in pictures from the BBC, in picture 9, I wonder if Camilla is saying "This is what you want for your birthday"!

Welcome and Thank you for this, the Gurkhas must count as among, if not the, bravest fighters in the world and we, the British, have been privileged to have them on our side. Charles and Camilla must have been so proud to meet them!
