    Camilla needs a major face lift. Someone please wax her eyebrows.Why do the royals not fix their teeth? They are so popular with the country, you’d think that would be important to them. Princess Katherine is the only one with beautiful teeth. I’m sorry, I’m a person who looks at people and, if they’d just do this. It would simply make them so much more attractive. The photo above of Camilla is so not appealing.

  2. Sh says

    Camilla also is a huge dog lover and had brought dogs that have been abandoned into her home and they become family to her and Charles, she also is a big advocate for women who have been abused by their husbands or boyfriends and left abandoned. Camilla has not put a foot wrong since she married into the royal family and has worked darn hard to prove herself , unlike some who think they are better then she is.
