It is hard to determine whether or not Prince Charles is angry with his current wife. If Duchess of Cornwall suffers from a medical condition, she should just retire from the public life and official engagements.

Knowing Camilla--from what I've read, she will just muddle through and make the best of it. And having said that and having suffered through a serious back issue, I do have a lot of sympathy for the DoC.

Who needs her to muddle through? She is not exactly the most popular person in the British royal family. < ed Warren > Given Duchess' of Cornwall age, there will be less negative publicity. My views may be construed as unsympathetic, but I think that it would be better for her to enjoy her life and grandchildren in the private setting and participate in certain engagements (e.g., state banquets) < ed Warren >

If she did that, there would be a terrific public outcry. The public would be paying for her to have a normal life.
She has the occasional back problems, that doesn't mean she should pull out from all royal engagements. She already has a negative image, this would make it undoubtable worse, more worse than "muddling through".

So a trapped nerve and some cancelled engagements because of that should result in retirement from public life? Is this more about personal dislikes?

"Lech" is a very old polish name. Just recall that Walesa's name is also "Lech". Plus, long, long time ago, Poles have been called "Lechici" -> the decendants of Lech, our lengendary prince.

It is not about personal dislikes, it is more about my personal view on duties. I was brought to believe that fulfilling duties is the most important thing. Perhaps ... the British royal family has got a different view on the matter. Given your post, it would be fair to presume that Duchess of Cornwall's medical condition was not crippling. Thus, she should have taken a pain-relieving medicine and carried on with engagements.

A trapped nerve can be very debilitating temporarily, and can make even small movements very very painful. As a result, the Duchess had to pull out of a relatively ardous journey over difficult terrain. The PoW still went, and the DoC carried out engagements in Warsaw instead. Hardly grounds for withdrawing from public life, IMO. Senior members of the BRF can hardly be accused of having a relaxed view of their duties.

You cannot just take pain relieving medicine for a trapped nerve.
It either needs to be dealt with surgically, physical therapy and Corticoids treatment.

A trapped nerve is not a grave medical condition, but it is very very painful. Its not the sort of thing that popping a few pills solves immediately. Anyways, if you are interested, suggest you google the condition to find out more.

A little correction, I've guessed Thursday, but they've continued
their journey to Hungary today and arrived at Ferihegy International
Airport in Budapest in the afternoon.

I have literally just been diagnosed with a trapped nerve in my arm and no pain killers are doing anything. The pain is debilitating and affecting my daily life. The doctor is sending me for further tests before deciding what action to take and has told me to expect to have this pain for the next couple of months while the tests are done e.g. the ultra sound to pinpoint where the problem is can't be done for another 5 weeks (that is the earliest I can get an appointment) and then the next time I can get an appointment with this doctor is another month after that. I have already had to wait nearly 6 weeks to see him so I do have the upmost sympathy for Camilla. If her backpain is anything like my arm pain is would be extremely difficult to travel.

You do realise that she did carry out engagements in Warsaw and didn't just spend the day in her rooms. The consequences of her pain were that more people saw a member of the BRF as some saw Charles and others saw Camilla whereas had she been fit to travel those in Warsaw would have missed out.

camilla's not very smart looking on this trip. She looks like a bag lady with that horrible brown scarf on her head. The Queen is much older and is always perfect looking in public.

I quite liked the scarf, and that she wrapped it around her head. But Oh how I loathe that polka dot explosion. I adored the first 100 times but now I just want to shred it. I do wish she would wear a hat and a brooch more often. It would complete the look and make it more classy and memorable.
