Yes I was going to say the same thing honey.
Oh Margot, you really are a lovely lady.
And good pics Lucien.

ashdean you must be priveledged.
Although I am proud of my Royal Doulton set, normally my guests would have a beaker, as Hyacinth would say, but for you,Lucien and Margot,I insist that only the best will do.

Lucien I particularly like the pic of PM and hubby.
Even though they have supposedly had their ahem.............adventures..............they certainly look in love.

Then why can't people feel free to call her that if they wish, as she is.
Actually, after the wedding a statement was issued saying that she preferred to be known as Duchess of Cornwall.
Of course you might call her Princess of Wales or Morganatic Rottweiler or whatever you wish to.

Quote
Diana's last title was Diana, Princess Of Wales.
Just to get things clear, that is actually a style. I guess Duchess of Cornwall is also a style with regard to Camilla.
In Charles' case, PoW and DoC are titles, since he holds them himself.

Quote
How often these days does Charles get called POW?
When they are introduced at formal engagements I presume it's 'The Duke and Duchess Of Cornwall'?
No, they will be introduced as HRH the Prince of Wales and HRH the Duchess of Cornwall.


Morganatic Rottweiler  ;D

In Cornwall they are called the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and in Scotland the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay. Duke of Rothesay being the traditional title of the heir to the Scottish throne, since the time of Robert III (1390-1407). Robert, possibly Scotland's most uninspiring monarch (hisd rival for the title is his father, Robert II), created his elder son, David, Duke of Rothesay, in 1398. David was then bumped off (very probably) by his uncle Robert, Duke of Albany, in 1402. The younger son, James, then became duke of Rothesay and subsequently  James I (1406-37).

It is quite noticeable that Charles was referred to as the Prince of Wales much more frequently once he got married. Before that, Prince charles was more usual. I suppose it was on the basis that 'Prince Charles and the Princess of Wales' would be a bit awkward.

Don't worry RoyalWatcher! Lucien remains discretion personified! I think in this case we can be satisfied to take Lucien at his word! Lindelle shall I bring some shortbread or Hobnobs for tea?

As I posted on the Queen Elizabeth II Part 3 thread in a response to what Eric has said:

No Camilla isn't on the same level of the Queen and she never will be. She's new to being a royal after all. But, she is absolutely amazing in her dedication to the British troops. Her presence at home comings, services and awards ceremonies has moved me. I wonder how she is perceived by the troops themselves?

Additionally, I think she is a wonderful lady, a dedicated companion and consort to the Prince of Wales, a loving mother and a doting grandmother. She's fantastic.

In agreement, RoyalWatcher.  I do not understand why people think negatively of her.

I agree too (though I can understand the reasons for the hostility, which was not ultimately related to her personal character, but based on the part that she was thought to have played in the break-up of the Prince's first marriage).

Yes, many, many people feel the same way. I used to as well, but no longer do. It was like I felt the need to protect Diana (kinda funny strange, huh?), but as time passed and I grew older I learned how complicated relationships can be.

My feelings for Camilla turned around as soon as Prince Charles began inviting her to his evening functions in the late 90s early 2000s. Diana had died by this time. It was still so hard to believe that she was gone. Camilla was so brave, my goodness. With all the press reviling her and the bad sentiments people had towards her. Then, I saw it. That unmistakable chemistry between two people that was captured in short snippets of television coverage. That never existed (from my perspective) between he and Diana.

I love seeing pictures of she and Charles together, and if we're lucky, we get to see their lightheartedness via short television highlights during an engagement of some sort. I'm really looking forward to their trip up north in the summer. They usually have a blast at the Highland Scottish games competition...forgive me, but I forget the actual name of the event. No disrespect to our Scottish friends.

It's funny, I don't personally know Camilla, but if I did, I think I'd hit it off with her immensely.

Somehow every second page that dead lady pops up here in Camilla's thread,as if someones brain is numb since.

But the world moved on and Charles has the most caring loving reliable partner he could ever wish for.
And that is more then he was used to.Camilla hasn't set a foot wrong since,since decades,and I don't
except any comment by anyone coming from the UK pointing at the old issue while that same UK
sees 1 in 3 marriages fail and end in divorce.But whenevr one says that it's the old adagio:"Oh Heavens...
o...we're British, we don't have sex,let alone escapades..nah...Just the full monty....and pints..."

I think Camilla is just fantastic,and Charles counts himself lucky to call her his wife.
