Charles and Camilla have rebuilt themselves, but the newspaper don't get it

I don’t know how it has happened, or why, but Charles and Camilla have rebuilt themselves.

This Royal tour has really worked for them. I reckon there was some cynicism about them before this started.

They have won many people over with their dignity, informality and sense of fun. But the newspapers don’t get it.

The Age described them as ‘foppish’, meaning overly concerned by appearances and manners. And today the Herald Sun tops that. On page three with a photo of Charles drinking a beer is the headline ‘Cheers, big ears’.

Come on, that is just plain ugly, rude and unnecessary. Why?

I’d love to get some views on why and how they have rebuilt themselves.

  • With a name such as ggfoz who's the one that's mentally challenged? You Diana baggers are brainless morons and don't know the real facts.

  • There will always be those people out there that will wave the flag and greet royalty in there loyal simple way regardless of what went on in their personal lives and that's their choice I'm a Diana fan so they don't interest me in the slightest.

  • Charles and Camilla do not seem to have changed at all.
    ALP supporters, such as Fairfax media whores such as 3aw, the Age, and left wing Journalists, have castigated the couple for being human beings. The media whores preferred to support the mentally challenged Diana (sold newspapers etc)

  • if you're not "beautiful"you don't count.diana could do ANYTHING but it was ok because she was "beautiful"

  • Well, for a bloke twice around the block in the marriage stakes, Madame Camilla is no match to the much loved late Lady Diana Spencer. In fact, in the most acute and politest of terms, she is absolutely featureless.And, has anyone ever heard her make an intelligent speech/address?? No! Thus, she is just a grinning traveller, taxpayer funded tourist and an abject fool in my view.
