I do have my feelings as a Diana fan and I don't consider Camilla is a feminist.
However, looking at the photographs accompanying the article, I do see a woman talking to these accomplished female guests who appears natural, engaged, interested. She seems to be exchanging more than pleasantries and a few platitudes and, thank God, there are no exaggerated facial expressions or wooden demeanour, nor have any stilted conversational titbits been reported. Please Kate, take note!

Diana, love her or hate her, sinner or saint, has been dead for nearly 19 years. Isnt it time to let it rest already?

Whatever she did in the past, Camilla has shown a real dedication to her patronages. She is engaged, interested and interacting on a genuine level, whether you see her in a room of women or a room of kids. She has done a lot for the causes of osteoporosis, children's literacy, and in this case, empowering women who are victims of domestic abuse. In her nearly eleven years of marriage, Camilla has shown to be a hard worker and willing to pull her weight as the consort of the POW.

All I can say to Camilla's little rescue dogs is....run Just in case mummy got inspired to weave a scarf for her husband using your hair Though I guess her short haired doggies likely don't have much to worry about.

She visited the LCO on May 4th and today she shows her continued support to the organization by displaying their logo on her bag while attending the BBC Radio 2.

The DM's favorite headline for the Duchess of Cornwall.

The Duchess of Cornwall brandishes a giant carving knife to cut cake | Daily Mail Online

Camilla, 68, was attending a reception to celebrate the 25th anniversary for homeless charity Emmaus UK at the French Ambassador's Residence in Kensington, London, and as guest of honour she was invited to cut the cake.

Trying to make her sound like a knife wielding maniac much I guess the reasonable thing to would have been to ask for a plastic butter knife to cut the cake with. I mean a big cake knife was over kill.

Fortunately no one seemed terrified. She was engaged, and everyone around her seems in good mood. And happy to have her support of it.

Hadnt heard of the society until now. I went and looked at their site and I am impressed. Great cause to work with, all the involvement they do with the homeless, getting them on their feet and more. Only been in the UK since 1991 but has grown incredibly. Camilla really seems to have a great niche of charities she is involved with.

Okay, I was right about the bad weather. A pity but show goes on

Article in People, about Camilla talking about the cause, and the pain of watching her mom die from it. It was a family event with Tom, Laura and her sister Annabelle all at the garden party. While it was her first patronage when she married, she has been involved since the early 90's.



http://www.people.com/people/package...017975,00.html
Quote:
"I became involved in it in 1994 after watching my mother stoically suffering the appalling pain and ignominy of this devastating disease, which in the end resulted in her early death at the age of 72," she said.

"Back in those dark old days, my family was not alone in knowing next to nothing about osteoporosis. It was rarely discussed and seldom diagnosed and usually attributed to women of a certain age.

"I was determined, for my mama’s sake, to find out more and to find a way of helping others avoid the same excruciating pain and disregard that she, and many of her generation had encountered."
Think what one may of her, Camilla has shown such a real dedication to her patronages, especially those on Osteoporosis, literacy and animal well-fare.
