    Gin-guzzling trainwreck Camilla has been forced into a hush-hush, home-detox program after humiliating the royal family with her drunken antics — and detonating a horrifying booze-fueled confrontation where she shockingly slapped future queen Kate Middleton! Sources learned that her furious hubby Prince Charles — who fears her boozy bad behavior is destroying any chance he has of becoming king — has confined the Duchess of Cornwall to her quarters in Highgrove. A team of private detox experts then began secretly trying to dry out the hateful royal with intensive emotional therapy and a 12-step program! But the royal souse and...

    London Evening Standard ^ | 12/10/10 | Ross Lydall and Justin Davenport
    The Duchess of Cornwall was physically attacked through an open car window as thugs rampaged through London, the Standard can reveal today. A rioter managed to push a stick through an open window of the limousine and jab her in the ribs. Camilla's terrifying ordeal came as a baying mob surrounded her and husband Prince Charles when they rode through central London in the vintage Rolls-Royce last night. A police source said one of the car's rear windows was opened by mistake as tuition fee protesters moved in. The attack is the biggest royal security breach in decades and raises...

    LONDON – Prince Charles has reopened a sensitive debate in Britain by suggesting his wife Camilla may take the title of queen when he becomes monarch. The comments came in an interview with U.S. network NBC recorded in August and due to be broadcast later Friday. Extracts were aired on British television and received high attention in the week Charles' son Prince William — who is second in line to the throne — announced his engagement to Kate Middleton. Camilla legally will be queen if Charles takes the throne, but when the couple married in 2005 officials said she planned...

    Prince Charles visited the Vatican on Monday for his first meeting with a pope since his 1996 divorce from Princess Diana. The heir to the UK throne was accompanied by his second wife, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, who wore the mandatory modest black dress and veil which the Vatican requires for wives of dignitaries who meet the pope. The 20-minute meeting was "cordial," the Vatican said in a statement afterwards. Prince Charles's accession to the throne was likely to be an unspoken subtext of the meeting, an expert on the prince told CNN. "The biggest thing on Prince Charles's...

    Tomorrow, after returning from the velvet opulence of the luxury yacht that was their floating refuge for eight days, Charles and Camilla will be back home and enjoying the spacious comforts of Highgrove, where he can disappear thankfully into his garden and she can be alone . . . at last. Oh dear. No one told the Duchess of Cornwall just how suffocating life at sea in a relatively confined space with the Prince of Wales was going to be. She returns from their Caribbean tour a wiser, but somewhat disillusioned, woman. It certainly wasn't the smiling and curious West...

    Its five strands of diamonds covered her decolletage and made the Queen's jewels look quite modest as they attended the Queen's banquet for the Commonwealth Heads of Government in Kampala, Uganda, on Friday. But Camilla didn't deliberately set out to overshadow her mother-in-law - the Queen gave her permission to borrow it from the royal collection. Camilla's favourite couturier, Anna Valentine, designed her a simple duck-egg blue dress and matching stole to set off the necklace, estimated to be worth tens of millions of dollars. The Duchess added the Queen Mother's Boucheron tiara, a set of diamond earrings and...

    Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, caused a panic in Pakistan on Thursday. The duchess unwittingly revealed her ankle inside a mosque. Camilla visited the Lahore mosque with her husband Prince Charles dressed in modest slacks. However, when Camilla replaced her shoes - which she had removed for the tour in accordance with Muslim tradition - she accidentally tucked her pants' leg into her sock and flashed her ankle. Her assistant private secretary, Amanda McManus, was heard frantically whispering "Ma'am, ma'am" and then rushed down the steps after her to rectify the wardrobe malfunction. It is considered disrespectful to Islam for...

    ONE of the Prince of Wales’s most trusted former advisers is to testify against him in a potentially explosive court case that threatens to reveal his views on sensitive matters of state. The Prince of Wales is taking legal action against The Mail on Sunday after it published extracts from his private journal containing his acerbic views on the handover of Hong Kong to the Chinese and his deep dislike for the Beijing regime. The Times has learnt that Mark Bolland, for seven years the Prince’s deputy private secretary, will give evidence for the defence. Mr Bolland, 39, who stage-managed...

    A BLACK police bodyguard who protected the Duchess of Cornwall has won $70,000 compensation after suing Scotland Yard for "over-promoting" him because of political correctness. Sgt Leslie Turner -- the first black personal protection officer to guard the royal family -- will receive the "racial discrimination" payout after reaching an out-of-court settlement with London's Metropolitan Police. His representatives argued he landed the prestigious job as Camilla's bodyguard only because he was black. It was claimed that as a result of being over-promoted and not receiving proper training and support, Sgt Turner made mistakes which led to him being re-assigned. He...

Her successor and former rival, Camilla Parker Bowles, failed spectacularly in her attempt to wow Manhattan society with her sartorial splendor last night. Dressed in an unflattering Anthony Price navy velvet frock with a fussy oversized chiffon collar, the Duchess of Cornwall arrived at a chi-chi cocktail party looking more like an escapee from the choirboy pew of Westminister Abbey than the guest of honor. Earlier, Camilla caused quite a stir when she chose...

    The crisis engulfing the White House has forced the Prince of Wales to alter his plans to visit hurricane-ravaged New Orleans over the next week. A visit to the city was planned by Clarence House and Downing Street to display the compassionate side of the Duchess of Cornwall. However, the trip has been put on hold by the White House, which is anxious that it may draw attention back to President George Bush's much-criticised response to the Katrina victims. The New Orleans visit has been left off the itinerary and, if it happens at all, will be little more than...
