The Associated Press: Prince Charles to visit bison-filled Polish forest

Britain's Prince Charles visits Poland on Monday, a journey that includes a visit to a bison-filled woodland — Europe's last remaining primeval forest thanks to preservation efforts of kings and czars of centuries past.

The British Embassy in Warsaw said the environmentally minded prince, along with his wife, Camilla, will visit a bison reserve where they will be guaranteed a view of several of the hefty beasts that are Europe's largest land mammals and less-hirsute cousins of the North American buffalo.

Programme of the visit

The program of visit in Poland, a bit general IMO (without hours) but fully packed ;-)

I'm not surprised you've forgotten about it. Not only have the British media made no mention of it at all but even the Prince of Wales's own website doesn't mentiuon it in the 'Diary' section present or future events:ermm:

Yeah, that´s horrible I would like to know exact times of events to have a chance to be there and see him (them). In Czech media there were some mentions but only about the fact that he will come and what he will do, but exact time - no! The only think I know is that Don Giovanni starts at 19.00 cause I have a ticket also, but is it the same performance where Charles will be??

Nor did the official website of the British Monarchy, which actually
surprised me as well. But as long as the host country did not forget
their visit, it seems forgivable ;):smile:

Here's the zimbio gallery from today.

I really like this pic of the evening reception, the look between Camilla
and Charles is so nice, hope to see a bigger version of it:

Lovely photos iceflowe, many many thanks!!! Im shocked at the lack of mention by the BRF and the PoW. Truely suprised.

I had to look up Fr. Jerzy Popieluszko I did not know the relevance. Here's a site I found:
Reverend Marek B. Bozek - Jerzy Popieluszko

Now can our Polish friends on here tell me the reason why Polish heads of state are called "Lech?"

(And when they get a chance where Russo can get some dried cottage cheese for Mr. Russo who's Polish and has been badgering Russo for some dried cottage cheese peroggis??)

Here's more photos (from Super Express). As you can see there's strong difference between ladies' shoes: boots for Duchess and slippers for Presidents' wife. It's true that we are still having the winter but these heavy boots are not elegant.

The Duchess of Cornwall has pulled out of a series of key engagements less than 24 hours into her official trip to Poland after being diagnosed with 'severe' back problems.
Camilla, who arrived in Warsaw with her husband, Prince Charles, on Monday had been due to visit a national park in the far east of the country as well as a traditional Tatar community today - one of the highlights of their three-day visit.

Poor Camilla, clearly suffering!

Guido 03-16-2010 06:47 AM

When will they leave to Hungary. The programme didn't mention it.

iceflower 03-16-2010 11:50 AM

Guido, I've read that their stay in Poland is planned for three
days, that would mean that they'll be in Hungary on Thursday.


Here's the gallery of day 2, the pics of Charles at the Bison
Reserve with the snow in the background are nice, Camilla
visited the museum dedicated to Polish Composer Frederick
Chopin:

I wonder it is osteoporosis? The disease runs in her maternal side. I bet Prince Charles does not like it. He got mad when Princess Diana was sick on official trips. :smile:;):smile:
