Lovelty how gentlemanlike the Italians greeted la Duchessa. All with a gentle handshake and a nod of the head. The ceremonials at the Vatican (Pope), the Palazzo del Quirinale (President) and the Palazzo Chigi (Prime Minister) were nice, colourful and well executed.

I am really enjoying this tour. The photos are great. And there is something about this couple that I enjoy watching. I know younger couples may be more exciting to some but I like watching these two.

I agree! And I'm still amazed by the crowds and interest from people in Italy and the tv coverage in Austria.

I think, for me, watching Charles and Camilla together no matter where they are, is so heartwarming to watch as you can just sense the closeness between these two people. They go together like peanut butter and jelly, soup and sandwich and steak and potatoes. There's a innate sense of really enjoying where they are and who they're are meeting and the public reacts to this.

Camilla really does bring out the best in Charles.

I agree! But I also think that Charles bring out the best in himself.

I have seen many clips of Charles from both before and after the wedding in 2005, and he always takes the time to greet people, he goes on walkabout and he listens to them he meets.

He has more charisma and is more folksy than all the young royals in Scandinavia, the Netherlands, Belgium and Spain together (even Harry), and that despite the fact that he is 20/30 years older than them. And to those who disagree, check out the videos on Getty Images.

Uppdated article:
Prince Charles and Camilla attend a state dinner in Vienna | Daily Mail Online

Prince Charles tells Holocaust survivors how his 'amazing' grandmother hid Jewish family during war
Quote:
The Prince of Wales has spoken movingly about the role his grandmother played in saving the lives of a Jewish family during the Second World War as he met Holocaust survivors in Austria.

Charles and Camilla spent the final day of their European tour in Vienna and met British and Austrian survivors of Nazi persecution when they toured the city's Jewish Museum.

The royal couple sat down with a group of elderly men and women who shared their harrowing stories with them.

During the Second World War, Princess Alice, the Duke of Edinburgh's mother and Charles's grandmother, sheltered a number of Jewish people when Greece was occupied.

Alice - who is buried in Israel - was recognised by Israel's Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial as a Righteous Among the Nations, and was posthumously awarded the British Government's Hero of the Holocaust medal.

The Prince told the group: "My father's mother took in a Jewish family during the war and hid them - she was amazing, my grandmother.

"She took them in during the Nazi occupation. She never told anybody, she didn't tell her family for many years.

"She's buried in Jerusalem. In September last year I went to the funeral of President (Shimon) Peres and finally got to see her grave."
Prince Charles and Camilla shown how strudel is made during tour of Vienna
Quote:
The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall read a copy of a British newspaper when they arrived in Austria - through a gossamer thin sheet of pastry.

Charles and Camilla were shown the test used by pastry chefs making the perfect apple strudel during a behind-the scenes tour of Cafe Demel, one of Vienna's treasured coffee houses.

The royal couple are coming to the end of a nine-day tour of Europe and arrived in the Austrian capital from Rome.

The reality is that the DM is only feeding the stupid people willing to believe this rubbish.

It shows respect to the culture. They are visiting the head of state in his residence. Respect seems to be common sense.

It was a private event so I didn't expect black or a veil. The lightening of rules even in state visits I think we will see a change, no mantilla at least, in Protestant monarchs. But I do think the Catholics will likely continue.

Royals understand the importance of tradition. They exist for the very reason. No surprise they respect others traditions. But just as monarchies are modernizing, the pope is modernizing some traditions.
Queen Silvia and Princess Madeleine wore black in their recent visit to the Pope and it wasn't an official visit. Madeleine also curtsied to the Pope.

Queen Letizia wore a white business suit the last time she visited the Vatican.

Quote from an article in the Daily Telegraph (re Camilla's fashion but pertinent to recent posts re meeting the Pope)

"*Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, are currently travelling around Italy, rounding off their six day tour with a visit to Pope Francis today.

This last engagement offered up one final sartorial challenge for the Duchess- how to embrace Pope Francis's newly relaxed dress code. Instead of donning a black dress and lace mantilla as has long been customary for non-Catholic royals meeting the Pope, Camilla instead opted for a simple gold Anna Valentine coat and scarf.*"
