  1. Camilla is doing a good job. Everything is hard enough. Her dress is once again typical for her. Not really beautiful but rare. ;-) Frieda

  3. She looks beautiful in this rich shade of blue. Besides that, this is a fantastic way to give a podium to the Helen and Douglas House. She is lovely in interacting with children. A queen in waiting, who would have thought ... Splendid.

  4. The Duchess looks great. That deep blue is gorgeous. Perfect length I think. Her hair is looking good as well. Great effort all around. The Christmas tree is beautiful.

    Tears came to my eyes.
    All my love to these precious children, to people taking care of them and to theDuchess of Cornwall.
    I think the children gave the most important gifts to all of us.
    Thank you.

    2. I agree, Maria. This is so lovely. Given the nature of the illnesses of these children, most will not see another Christmas and it must be like a fairytale to them. Well done to the Duchess of Cornwall (who looks lovely in blue velvet ) for making this a special event for them.

    3. Thank you , Coralie and Annie M.!
      Yes ,Annie, you are right, the Duchess has made one of these children' s dreams come true and God will never forget such good deeds.
      These children had their moment of magic and stardust around them and this is just wonderful!
      I pray for the greatest miracle for these children, the miracle of saving their lives and I believe God can make wonders when we less expect them.

  7. What a lovely tradition. Even online it made a wonderful impression. The Duchess again in a very tasteful velvet dress in a superb blue colour. And again make-up impeccable. Makes her years younger.

  16. The children are amazing. Teach us all a lesson in what really matters. Camilla is handling everything with grace and a quiet demeanour that deserves to be praised. Amazing how she was able to bring joy to the kids without any fuss.

  17. What a heartwarming, wonderful and touching video! The Duchess looks fantastic and it is great to see how engaged she is. I couldn't help it but shed a(or more!) tears watching this video, especially the last part of it, and the joy of the children receiving the gifts -it must mean a lot to them and their families. Merry Christmas to all those little suffering angels! May the new year be a much better and healthier one for everyone!

  19. I am always impressed with the Duchess's interactions with children. She is so genuine and takes her time to hear the Children and make them feel important. She always does seem to enjoy having the children come to Clarence House and have treats and to decorate the tree. This year had to be different with the pandemic but she made it a fun activity and special for the children.
