Thank you for all the updates. It appears to have been a successful, albeit brief tour. I'm sorry that you were not able to meet the Duchess.
I'm going to echo Aurora's sentiments on this one. How lucky you are to work at the Louvre too! It one of the places on my bucket list stuck way back in my closet.
From being unsure of how she'd fit into public duties at the time of her marriage to doing a French tour solo and attending the opening of parliament this year, Camilla has made great strides into becoming the confident, charming and supportive Queen Consort that she will be for Charles. It has to be quite scary for anyone nearing retirement age to take on a life of full time public duties and appearances. Instead of looking forward to relaxing, golden years, its more like starting a full time career one does in their 20s.
Camilla has not only taken it all in stride, but has excelled at it.
The more I think of it, perhaps the Rottweiler can still describe Camilla. I've known a few of them in my lifetime and I have to believe what the AKC says abut this breed.
"The AKC Standard describes the Rottweiler as "a calm, confident, and courageous dog with a self-assured aloofness that does not lend itself to immediate and indiscriminate friendships."
Typically steadfast, sensible, and serious (though some are happy-go-lucky clowns!), the Rottweiler tends to respond quietly and with a wait-and-see attitude to influences in his environment."
Well done Camilla!!
