President Obama is to meet Prince Charles and Camilla at the White House on March 19, it's just been announced in DC.

US Royal Watcher 02-20-2015 12:05 PM

I guess I should say that I am looking forward to the trip but I can tell from their schedule in Washington, DC that the motorcade is going to mess up my commute at least twice.


In all seriousness, I am pleased that they will be visiting the Armed Services Retirement Home. It's a beautiful area. Perhaps they can pop into Lincoln's summer cottage while they are there.


It's also great that Camilla will meet with the Sexual Assault Response Team. It's a great cause and she will bring in some great publicity.

City's sustainable practices inspire Prince's visit
Quote:

Even the Prince of Wales — the man first in line to the British throne — knows it's difficult to say no to Christy Brown.

The Louisville resident, widow of former Brown-Forman chairman Owsley Brown, has an impressive track record for founding and participating in organizations aimed at encouraging sustainable practices, and her efforts align with many of Prince Charles' own.

So when Brown invited the prince to visit her city last fall, he couldn't exactly turn down the offer, said Patrick Holden, founding director of The Sustainable Food Trust.

Royal tourist alert! Among the fannypack-wearing hordes coming this week to gawk at monuments will be Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, who are sweeping into town for an epic few days of sightseeing and socializing — all in the name of celebrating that “special relationship” we enjoy with the Brits.

The view from America: Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall set off on US tour to "cement" her role

Dman 03-17-2015 02:32 PM

I'm a proud American, and I welcome the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall with open arms. Many American's like the British royals, but really don't like to admit it much. I have no problem with admitting it.

DukeofMontpelier 03-17-2015 02:36 PM

Amen Dman!! I also like to add as a Diana fan she has proven herself worthy of the title of Queen. I respect the fact if she herself does not want to take the title.

I agree, no matter if she's the future Queen or Princess Consort, Camilla has gained my respect.

Charles And Camilla Arrive For US Tour
Quote:

The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall have arrived in the United States for a four-day tour, which will include a meeting with Barack Obama at the White House and a visit to George Washington's family estate outside the American capital.

The trip should bring back fond memories for the Royal couple, who came to the US for their first official overseas visit 10 years ago after they became man and wife.

This time they will spend almost as much time apart as together as they lend their support to a number of projects close to their hearts.

For the Prince of Wales, that includes addressing a meeting of major companies, environmentalists and government representatives about the growing problems of plastic waste in the world's oceans as well as receiving an award at a separate event from the International Conservation Caucus Foundation for exceptional leadership in conservation.

Camilla, meanwhile, is due to attend a Rape Crisis unit in Washington and an animal welfare organisation in Kentucky of which she is patron.

No, but at least she wears skirts that are either cut or weighted to cope with it.

I do hope she's Queen and not Princess Consort. :ermm: It lessens Charles, if he goes that route. JMO.

Looking forward to all the pictures of the visit. :flowers:
