That paper lies more than the DF, and I don't trust any of the Tominey/Dampier sources.

Quote:
Once dubbed the “most hated woman in Britain” for her part in breaking up Charles’s first marriage, Camilla is now one of the most popular royals and is very much a “Queen in waiting”.
This is simply not true. I admire Camilla and thinks she deserves to be popular, but the thing is that she's not.

The only thing that could be taken as gospel truth is the fact that Camilla is turning 70 this year and that Charles would do something to celebrate that.

One thing we do know is that whatever celebration happens, it won't be a surprise party. Charles has hosted a party for the major birthdays in the past so it would stand to reason that he'd do something for the 70th also. He isn't going to be running to the press with the guest list but it wouldn't be hard for the ever imaginative press to dream up who would be on it.

It is summer time and the rule of thumb is that its also the silly season where the royals wind down for their summer breaks and there's not much in the way of real information for the royal reporters to earn their paychecks on so they resort to taking a crumb of bread and making a three tiered cake out of it.

^^ Or is it more like the reporters take a 'crumb of bread and make it into an inedible mud pie'? :-)
Next they'll have the stories about who snubbed and didn't attend the party. There really just seems to be one nonsense story after another, almost like there is no longer any care about the quality of work, just keep pushing the rubbish out and see what the minions believe.

The only people you can trust when it comes to the royals is the serious commentators/experts that consists of historians and former royal staffers who are not affiliated with the media.

Maybe I'm not so informed on things as I thought I was. I don't go reading about any royals anywhere else but here and 95% of the time, I ignore the links and the videos. I just find it more pleasant to discuss things here and leave the media to doing what it does or doesn't do to other interested parties.

So I have a good source of information and discussion here in these threads and I have a wonderful supplier to feed my book addiction and to this old lady, that's the perfect balance.

I presume a nice official photo with all the family would have been seen, again, as a PR move against the "other" anniversary...

I would imagine that actually the "other" anniversary wasn't even thought of. It was a day to celebrate Camilla's 70th birthday with family and friends. Its been 20 years and all the cast of characters at Camilla's party has moved on in life. There are those that will remember the "other" anniversary in their own way at the right time but for that night, it was solely Camilla's night and a personal party. PR has nothing to do with it.

wellI Should hope that Charles remembers his ex wife and the mother of his children and that the boys remember her too. But I agree that since he has been divorced from her for a long tiem and shes' been sadly dead for many years, its a bit much if he can't give a party for Camilla without being accused of using it as PR against Diana.

She's been the described as the love of Prince Charles' life and has stuck by his side through thick and thin.
So it was no surprise that the Prince of Wales pulled out all the stops for his beloved wife the Duchess of Cornwall's 70th birthday.

Article by Camilla Tominey:
Camilla: The 70th birthday of the popular Duchess of Cornwall | Royal | News | Express.co.uk

1. Again - Camilla deserves to be popular, but the fact is that she is not.

2. But it's nice that she gets positive coverage in the press and we've seen more and more of it in recent years, and she deserves it.

Nice but Testino, as usual, is very generous with the airbrushing.

I've always admired Testino's work and he doesn't disappoint with this portrait of Charles and Camilla. Well done!

Nice idea but that portait has been photoshopped to no end!! Why not leave people as they are, Charles looks strange and Camilla without wrinkles.

I love Camilla's down to earth nature. Its always been reported that she sees things on the funny side of life and to read her words, I can see that this is an integral part of her makeup.

She's a woman that is comfortable in her own skin. She's "full fat" rather than trying to maintain an image of perfection physically and forges on ahead with what she needs to do and rather than moan about her lot, she makes the best of it and enjoys it. She is an inspiration for people like me that are fast approaching what is called "old". This has rubbed off on Charles too I think as I've never seen him happier than he has been since their marriage.

Think I'm going to go have me a "full fat" milkshake, wiggle my toes that are free from restraining shoes and sit back and enjoy a good book. (Something I'm never without. I usually have 3-4 books I'm reading simultaneously. I like variety.)

As far as the photo Testino shot. I don't think it would have mattered to Camilla one bit if it hadn't been touched up to eliminate the wrinkles. I would put Camilla at the top of the list of women who aren't vain about their appearance. I like that.
