Ashdean, Camilla seems to have an increasing number of supporters as the years go by, but to say no one gives a 'damn' about Diana except a 'sad few' is branding quite a few around here, thank you very much.  My interest and affection for Diana doesn't always involve slating Camilla, but you're kidding yourself if you don't think many people still have affection (and always will) for the late Princess of Wales.

That sounds to me to be just a riposte made in irritation at the nastiness of dmitri's constant sniping at Camilla!

Well said Grace!

Can't quite make out that hat - anyone got a better picture of it?  At least it doesn't look like something that Johnny Depp might have rejected for his latest 'Pirates' sequel.............

I would have to agree with you there ashdean. I think many would agree that she should be left in peace!!!
IF ONLY Eddie if only ..she could lie in peace, her sons would be spared hearing sordid details of her life (fact & fiction) and the name fayed would be obliterated from the press....Ah to dream the impossible dream....

Surely she must have done something of note, something worthy of discussion in all these weeks???

I doubt it - she hasn't done anything exceptional in the previous 60 years !!!!!  And that includes a four letter word - WORK !!!

She has been endeavouring to heighten awareness of the crippling disease, osteoporosis.   She lost her mother to this painful, wasting disease which, unfortunately, is diagnosed usually when an older person fractures a femur or vertebrae.   As I've mentioned before, Camilla exhibits many of the early signs of this horrible illness.   I imagine she will already been on treatment which can not only halt, but in some cases, reverse the progress.

If nothing else, I think this is something very worthwhile.   

She also appears to have helped fractures in a very disfunctional family and the Prince of Wales seems to have a much better relationship with his parents - even at this late stage.

He also seems happier in himself and much more relaxed with everyone else, which can be no bad thing.

Incidentally, my mother did no "WORK" for most of her life, just (!) brought up a family; I suppose I ought to sneer at her for never having "done anything exceptional".

Actually ( as I think you know) being a homemaker/housewife/mother is a very important career and very hard work !!!! AND yr mother seems to have made a success of it with you !...As for Camilla why should she go to a job as well... if she had the means (from whatever source..family,husbands etc) not to !!!

As someone who is the same age as Camilla and who has worked for the last 43 years AND brought up a family, I do resent that my taxes go to support this woman.  I know I am not alone in my opinion.   The UK is a very different country from the one it was when QEII came to the Throne.

It is...but that can't be lain at the doorstep of Camilla...or the royal family for that matter...they've always been accused of not changing with the times, rather than changing the times...

Actually none of your taxes (or my taxes for that that matter) go to support 'this woman', the income of the Prince of Wales and his wife does not come from the civil list but from the annula profits of the Duchy of Cornwall, on which, moreover, he pays income tax.

http://www.princeofwales.gov.uk/finances/income/

This is a totally meaningless criticism in any case. In her earlier life, Camilla was supported by her husband; and she now has royal duties to perform and must be about 60 in any case.
