Amazing then how so many were upset when Diana died. I doubt anybody would be apart from Charles and her children if she passed away.

What a startling thing to say. So unecessary.....

Absolutely, that's just malicious. In fact I get the impression that she's well liked among the people whom she mixes with. We all have our good and worse sides; it's as childish to regard Camilla as some sort of witch as it is to regard Diana as some sort of saint.

Well said Adagietto, some people just aren't very nice. The Duchess clearly has a lot of loyal friends who speak highly of her.
Let he who is without sin cast the first stone!

You might be surprised.....she is it seems much liked in certain circles and by her larger family....perhaps because she is earthy and certainly (unlike Diana) not neurotic !!!but IF that bitter attitude continues into your personal life ...how many folk would be bothered about you...

Camilla knew how the play the game, while Diana did not want to conform...it was as simple as that.  :(

Though I do wonder about the distinct 'fifties' echo of her 'fun' panoply at the Lloyd George statue unveiling, I have to say that I found it rather amusing in a way! That shade of brown, probably described in days past as 'Chocolate' trimmed with faux leopard was striking though I admit that the hat was a bit 'individual' but very much in HRH's preferred 'quirky' style!

Even so, I like the fact that HRH really does seem to be finding her own distinct style and silhouette! No one else within the Family comes near her for individual distinctiveness of personal style, bar Mama in law needless to say! I know that HM's style and interests in her own clothes etc has improved immensely over the last decade, but to be honest, I actually look forward to seeing what HRH will wear next with much more interest....and I am not really taken with 'fashion' as a rule to be honest! But where Sofie and Anne are concerned I feel, Camilla is 'Ballrooms' ahead!

I like the way HRH seems to be able to wear things that strike one, whether it be in a positive or negative way, but in which 'she' appears nevertheless comfortable and natural.

I imagine her hair will always be an issue.....no doubt the hair spray bill at Clarence House is quite substantial, but what else can she do with it really? I mean she can't possible go down the in-law route! A radical new hairstyle might work, but I tend to think that it isn't that bad in it's present incarnation and adds a softness and 'labrador/retriever' type friendliness to her overall appearance! I know it may not be the most coiffured of styles, but at least it is quite natural and engaging!

I guess she must have stolen it.

You do intend to insult,don't you.
She,if anyone of the whole Windsor lot,absolutely deserves the Order.

Dmitri: I disliked Diana and, a few pages back, indicated that into a post regarding Camilla's style and clothing. A comparision, if you like. It was not relevant, I regretted it even before it was pointed out and I allocated myself an afternoon of excrutiations by way of penance. Apart from a post regarding the annoucement of her death, that is the only mention I've ever made on her - and before the admin changes meant I had to start a new a/c. Point made. Now then. Your views on Camilla are well-known - you've been very busy haven't you?. So having got myou attentions, please find another way to up your status or relieve the bile other than this childish trolling.

If someone could post the photo from the Daily Mail today.....Canilla's hair looks back to blond?  Hope its true and not a camera illusion.  I really disliked that WHITE hair.  What I noticed most tho was that she really looks the part of a ROYAL now....like she has grown into it at last.

It seems I must drop in to remind posters about the rules of the Forum.  Personal attacks on the living are forbidden, including HH Charles and Duchess Camilla.  A good rule of thumb is "would you say that to their face in person"? If not, then don't say it here.

Opinions are fine, personal attacks aren't. When in doubt, leave it out.

Charles has been a great supporter of the Alexander Palace and this forum is not a place where we allow negative discussions or postings about him or his wife.
