I've moved your post from the current events thread to this one as all events today were related to the Duchess' Patronage of the National Literacy Trust.

Camilla attended a literature festival that celebrates the work of the National Literacy Trust Hub in Peterborough at Peterborough Cathedral, she visited Boots Opticians, who work with the Trust to highlight the links between eye health and literacy and she attended a reception for volunteers, supporters and partners of the National Literacy Trust Hub.

I think this is wonderful. Over a span of her lifetime, I imagine she does know more about osteoporosis than many of us ever will and has made it one of her missions in life to support and inform the public about this debilitating disease.

Way to go Camilla!

Yes, she's become an expert about this cruel disease the same way I have w/Dementia, through having to watch it take a loved one/Parent away from us piece by piece. It's an Education I know I wish I never have had & I'm sure it is the same w/HRH & Osteoporosis. She is in a position to do what is in her power though, to both educate and fund raise needed Research Dollars to fight this thing in a way I wish I could, and has done in the years since becoming Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall.

Congratulations to Her Royal Highness on a very well deserved honour.

The Duchess of Cornwall was in Wiltshire today, February 9.

As President of Prospect Hospice she visited the charity's Outreach Centre and met staff, patients and donors at Savernake Hospital Marlborough and she officially opened the new school building at Forest & Sandridge Church of England Primary School:

An 125 year old hospice? Wow. In many countries such hospices are a fairly recent phenomenon.

Congrats to Camilla She really has been quite dedicated to her patronages, especially osteoporosis since her marriage. The personal connection I guess helps. But her other patronages as well, they seem to be personal choices for her. I find myself having really come to like and respect her over the years.

And she looks very nice for the event as well

As have I. Speaking of a person that came to these forums in 2008 and knowing about Camilla only what the rags at the checkout in the supermarket were flashing that week, my opinion and viewpoint on the Duchess of Cornwall has done a total flip flop to the positive.

Along with being dedicated to Osteoporosis, I especially admire Camilla for her dedication to literacy. On a personal angle, her work for literacy has influenced me immensely. I now buy all my used books through a program where the profits from the sale all goes to literacy programs local, national and globally.

I am really liking the recognition that Camilla is getting in regards to the things she does and never fails to look happy doing what she's doing. Maybe, just maybe, more and more people will see her as we do and just how valuable she really is to the "Firm".

I always smile when I see her at literacy events. You can see she is such a natural grandmother, I bet her grandkids adore her. Seeing her reading them stories and interacting. She always has a huge smile. I have always been involved in literacy here, working as a study buddy, and the programs get so little support or even notice. It is so important that someone like Camilla steps up and makes it more front and center.

I also like her animal patronages. She has even brought her own dogs on tours who she rescued from a shelter.

Yes, Camilla certainly 'took no prisoners' as far as Diana was concerned.

Ah yes, Kathy Lette the Australian who for years on holidays back home lost no opportunity to poke fun at the British she mixed with as Geoffrey Robertson's wife. It's true, Camilla has taken on some worthwhile causes and good on her for doing so, but don't lets pretend that she is some kind of feminist icon.
