Looking forward to her visit.

Hopefully someone would come up with photos taken when Camilla was in Paris in 1963. She would have been just 15.

What type of visit is this? Is it official? Or some charity-related?

'C'est magnifique Hooky Street': Camilla given a 'hooky' watch by British Ambassador | Royal | News | Daily Express

The watch is not as "hooky" as it seems. LIP watches were hugely popular in France in the 60's and 70's and were famous for their high quality. Being a watch collector myself, this Cartier inspired one is a great find and at 10 euros a real bargain.

Nico

Thank you for this. My french is more an a little rusty - could you tell us what the tome of the reports are - ie favourable, pleased, critical etc.

Many thanks

Nico 05-27-2013 07:08 PM

The tone is hugely favourable as Emmaus is very very popular here in France. The thing is that she apparently asked to come and visit the french branch, so people are pleasantly surprised. Camilla is not a well known figure here, or to be honest known for the wrong reasons so the French are discovering her through one of the most popular charity of the country, which is a good thing.
The press is eager to underline the fact that it's her first solo trip abroad and that she's gaining more confidence and becoming a key figure of the BRF.
There's no dangerous comparison, no insinuation and no cynism ... for the moment. You can expect some from the yellow press next week ...
