but Bush will be here in argentina in november5 for the cumbre de las americas.

pollyemma 10-25-2005 01:17 PM

as far as i've heard, bush will only be playing host to C and C on November 2. first for a lunch in the afternoon and then for a large formal dinner in the evening.

here's a brief interchange from an online chat with one of dc's gossip columnists.

---
Arlington, Va.: What's the buzz on the visits of Charles and Camilla? What will they be doing in D.C.? Who's going to the White House dinner?
reliable source: The details are very hush-hush. What we know so far: The Newlyweds will go to New York first, where they'll visit Ground Zero. Charles was scheduled to make a trip in 2001 that was cancelled, and this is meant to honor the many British citizens who died at the World Trade Center. On Wednesday, Nov. 2 they'll be in Washington, where they'll have lunch at the White House, as well as a fancy state dinner that night. No leaks on who's invited, but we assume the competition is fierce.

They're staying at the embassy with Ambassador David Manning and his wife, Catherine, and there will probably also be a dinner there the following hosted by the prince. There are hints of visits to educational type venues, but nothing definite. We'll share as soon as we know more.

and so will I;)

well deserved!

I Wish them all the best as they visit my country . Hope everyone will be nice and Friendly to them

maryshawn 10-26-2005 01:32 PM

Well, if the supermarket tabloids are any indication, all will be well. Some of the headlines I saw the other night were all about Camilla's new style and were very pro-Charles and Camilla as a couple.

Sunday night on 60 Minutes is the big night we Americans on here have been waiting for!! The first American interview with Prince Charles in so many years.

Humera 10-26-2005 11:18 PM

upcoming Canadian visit?
 
I just heard this on the news.
Prince Charles and the Duchess Cornwall really wanted their first overseas visit to be to a commonwealth nation and felt that Canada would've been a perfect choice. But because the visit would've fallen in November, the Canadian government felt that the timing might've been all wrong, politically, and so nixed the idea.
Instead Charles and Camilla are confining themselves to the US.
Now all of this info. comes from sources at the palace via the CBC's London bureau chief.
So while there are no official dates yet, a visit to Canada will happen soon. Most likely after we've had an election which will be sometime next year (unless something happens this fall)

I don't believe a word of it! What is "confining" supposed to mean anyway! Their first overseas trip would make a bigger impact by visiting the US and WTC site, than visiting Canada.

Harry's polo shirt 10-26-2005 11:31 PM

please don't take offense by the "than visiting Canada" part..I didn't mean it like that..

perhaps you misunderstood what I said. Canada is a commonwealth country. Thats the significance. They wanted their first visit to be to a commonwealth nation. This isnt supposed to take anything away from their US visit. I hope it didnt come across that way. But the political climate here is unstable which is why such a visit couldnt happen right now. When the Queen was here a few months ago, there were similar fears and some people thought she wouldn't come. The royal family doesnt like to involve itself in politics. That visit, however, was a major one and couldn't be cancelled over such short notice. This time though the Canadian government seems to have given the palace a heads up.
This isn't gossip Im repeating its from an official source. I doubt the CBC would report it especially if it wasnt true. It would be like the BBC in the UK reporting gossip.

oh...sorry I misunderstood..I was thrown by it sounding like the US trip was a "oh well, we have to visit somewere" decision..

Humera 10-26-2005 11:47 PM

thats okay. And I didnt mean for it to sound that way. I think this just means they're only visiting the US instead of visting Canada and then the US.

Lady Marmalade 10-27-2005 12:18 AM

Hi Humera,

You mentioned before that it could be they would want to wait to visit until the elections are over in your country?

I could see that as the Queen almost ran into a politically sensitive moment when she was in your country earlier this year. There was thought an election might have to have been called while she was there.

Is that true?

Hi Nicole,
yes you're right. At first I thought Charles and Camilla could come to Canada in November because we'll probably have an election next year, not next month.
But then I saw the news again and its because the plans for this visit were discussed a few months ago, at that point the Canadian government felt that we might be into an election campaign by Fall 2005, so thats why they told the palace to not schedule the visit for November. Now we know that there wont be an election next month. But no one was sure about that a few months ago when the visit was being planned.

The Queen's visit faced similar uncertainty earlier this year. Her visit was around 10 days long and during that time there were fears that Canada's minority government would be defeated and an election would have to be called. (There was a similar situation decades ago and at that time the royal visit was cancelled)
But the Queen was supposed to attend centennial celebrations for 2 of our provinces and a lot of planning had gone into all the festivities. Fortunately she came anyway after consulting our PM and there was no election.

I guess the Canadian government wanted to avoid a repeat of the political uncertainty surrounding another royal visit and felt it would be safer if Charles and Camilla postpone their trip until after the election.

I saw this on the Prince of Wales website. There was a pre-tour reception at Clarence House. Looks like the Prince and Duchess were busy, same day had visits from the Norwegian prince and princess.

Of course, here is another take on the reception from Mirror:

The press I believe is the only one doing any comparing of camilla and Diana. I hope they enjoy their visit. I think people will want to meet camilla she is a royal and those that are into the royal family will enjoy the visit.
