Well we saw HM in a whole new spring/summer wardrobe lets hope HRH is equally as perfect as her mother in law.

Princejohnny25 03-18-2006 05:32 PM

I hope so. I am rather tired of the dark colors she wore during the winter.

Royal Fan 03-18-2006 10:42 PM

Royal Couple Set For Foreign Tour

I hope security is really good. But, I dont think Charles would be that big of a target. Yes he is the future Supreme Governer of the Church of England and a Prince of the UK but he has a great understanding of Islam and isnt afraid of it and embraces it and peace. He doesnt stand out as an enemy but who knows what goes through a terroists head.

I'm sure Camilla will get some great jewels from the rulers of Saudi Arabia! :)

cde 03-20-2006 02:08 AM

But will she wear the gifts/jewels in public? I vaguely remember reading something about really expensive gifts and the RF not doing that.

Does anyone know anything about this?

It would be an insult to one's hosts to refuse a gift that is meant to honour a Royal visit. There is generally an exchange of gifts on such occasions, and the Saudis have been known to be very generous. If Camilla receives a gift of jewels it may be some time before we see her wearing them. In any case, unless the presentation was made public we could only guess the provenance of any new jewels: they could be "from the vaults", a gift from Charles, or a gift from a another Royal.

The British Royal Family, with rare exceptions, do not accept expensive gifts from members of the public.

I am sure you know that it is not the first time Prince Charles visit saudi arabia so I don't understand why you think he will be target , every month there are western leaders visit Saudi arabia for example before two weeks the president of France had a state visit , I think saudia arabia have good security and people hospitable :)

I am sure that the level of security will be well organised and that no attacks will be held against him. After all he is the heir to the most popular Monarchy in the world.

TRH Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Charles, Prince of Wales attend an evening reception on the first day of their 12 day official tour visiting Egypt, Saudia Arabia and India, on March 20, 2006 in Cairo, Egypt. The visits provide an opportunity to support the UK's international contribution and profile, with key themes to promote better understanding and tolerance between faiths, supporting environmental and conservation intiatives, and encouraging sustainable employment and training opportunities for young people. This is the Royal couple's second joint overseas tour, and is the first time Charles has visited Egypt since March 1995.
