Duchess Camilla is the boozehound MVP of the Trump-UK state visit

U.S. President Trump's State Visit To UK - Day Two

It didn’t even occur to me that the Duchess of Cornwall would have nothing to talk about with Donald Trump. You see, Trump doesn’t drink. And Camilla is a total boozehound. It is known. She is greeted with shots of rum or glasses of wine wherever she goes. Much like Kate has to be plied with buttons and coatdresses to do anything, I imagine Camilla will only do events if she’s promised booze. So it was Tuesday evening, when Donald and Melania Trump hosted a dinner at the American embassy in London. The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall were the guests of honor, and Theresa May was also in attendance. Just look at the pre-dinner festivities:

U.S. President Trump's State Visit To UK - Day Two

LMAO, Camilla is the only one with wine! She arrived at the embassy and was like “Can I have a drink, love?” You know she was like, “just give me the bottle of wine, I’m not going to stop with one glass.” She might have even hidden a flask somewhere in her Fiona Clare gown.

Additionally, Camilla got attention on Monday because she seemed to give a cheeky wink to *someone* during another photo-op with the Trumps. This was (I believe) in Buckingham Palace, and Camilla and Charles acted as hosts for a “tea.” Camilla definitely winks, but at who? I suspect she was winking at someone in the press pool, as she’s known to be quite friendly with the regular photographers and reporters. But did the wink mean? I suspect it meant “lord, this day is awful and I just spiked by tea with bourbon.”

Love Camilla’s diamonds here. Would love to get boozy with her and then she would let me try on some of her diamonds.

    If I had to sit with the Trump I would get drunk too!

    • Seraphina says:

      Yes, numbing the pain is always a good idea. I’d love to do that at work in meetings.

      The more I read about Cams the more I would really like to hang with her. She seems fun and knows how to tow the party line. I bet she has soooo many stories to tell. But I would ask if she let me put on her diamonds first. That really helps me focus.

      • Eleonor says:

        Getting drunk with Camilla must be AMAZING.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        @Seraphina, I bet Cammie is the type who would say “Sure, try those big boys on. If you want more to play with I have a whole big chest you can go through in another room”.

        Cammie looks like so much fun.

      • Seraphina says:

        @BayTamoaBay, I think you’re right. She seems like so much fun. Boozing it up, aristo gossip and wearing priceless jewels. Hell yeah, SIGN ME UP!!!!!

    • ByTheSea says:

      I’m just angry that he and his brood of vipers have been normalized. I want to take a flying sidekick into their smug, insufferable faces.

    • Snappyfish says:

      One would have to get smashed to be in the same room with these screaming toads. (Apologies to toads everywhere) Camilla seems like a good time & OMG the diamonds are awesome!! But full disclosure I am a diamond girl!! In fact, my husband says diamonds (& jewelry in general) is my p0rn

    • Ronaldinhio says:

      I feel far too much has been made about Camilla having a drink. Simply because Trump doesn’t drink and ‘encourages’ anyone in his company not to drink does not mean that they shouldn’t.
      His feelings shouldn’t be directives to others – it feels oppressive.

      Also a few drinks does not make her a booze hound especially by UK standards. Women are always held to other standard than men. No-one has mentioned Charles etc drinking.

      • Becks1 says:

        I’m pretty sure the “boozehound” comment was a joke. No one is making a big deal about it because she “shouldn’t” be drinking because Trump doesn’t. It’s just funny that there is this picture where her glass of wine is featured very prominently.

        It’s long been said that Camilla likes a good drink. Didn’t her parents own a wine company or something?

    • Flying Fish says:

      Lol

  2. Lightpurple says:

    I want to have a drinking lunch with Camilla.

    Kudos to the entire British Royal Family for their handling of this entire Affair Trump that Theresa May foisted upon them. The Queen, Charles, and Camilla did their duty and showed up and tolerated Orange Voldemort and his mail order bride but they made damn sure there is not a single photograph of them or Will and Kate with Nagini, Tom Riddle, or Crabbe and Doyle. For all her posing and grifting, Nagini does not have a single souvenir picture of herself and anyone above sixth in line to the throne, and Harry is talking to someone else in those pictures.

    • Erinn says:

      I do too! It must have been extra annoying for her, because booze, dogs and horses seem to be some of her favorite thing. And we all know Donny Two Scoops doesn’t like any of them. Camilla is the kind of woman I’d love to have as an aunt or a pseudo-mother.

      I am overall super impressed with the royals. I know it’s their job to be diplomatic and gracious hosts – but when you’re dealing with someone as absolutely toxic as this family it certainly isn’t easy. Especially when he’s made so many snide remarks about your family members. I really am no fan of Melania, but I will say she does an okay job with things like this. She’s at least halfway capable of acting warmly enough, and polite enough – I think she’d probably be a good host of events in her ‘old’ kind of trophy wife life. I doubt she wants to be FLOTUS anymore than most people want her to be FLOTUS. But at least compared to her vile husband she can manage to look interested enough and welcoming when meeting others.

    • Louisa says:

      Sorry, but I’m annoyed at the RF for this. They’re helping to normalize this monster and his family. If they absolutely had to give him a state dinner then I’m sure they could have said no to all the extended family. The fact that they opened the palace to these grifters makes me want to puke. British citizens are out on the streets protesting and all the major royals are yukking it up and rolling out the red carpet. I’m pissed.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        as is over half the population of the USA.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        ” If they absolutely had to give him a state dinner then I’m sure they could have said no to all the extended family.”

        the scuttlebutt is that ONLY 45 and Mailorder were invited but that all of his kids/spouses showed up. like, they CRASHED a palace party.

      • Tina says:

        Blame the government, not the royals.

      • Becks1 says:

        @whatWHAT – do you mean for the trip in general, or the state dinner specifically?

        Honestly, if you think the royals could have said no to the extended family, then you don’t really know how Trump operates (I don’t mean that in a snarky way.) The convo probably went like this:

        “you and your wife are invited for a state visit with the queen. There will be a white tie dinner at the palace.”
        Trump – cool, I’m bringing all my kids.
        GB – “sir, that’s not really how it is done, the invitation is extended to you and your wife and senior officials.”
        Trump – great, so my kids AND their spouses are invited, excellent.
        GB – “sir…..”
        Trump – You said they could all come, so I’m bringing them!!!!!

        They could have tried very hard to limit the invitation to just Trump. He wouldn’t give a flying eff. No way was Ivanka et al missing that dinner.

      • Original T.C. says:

        How are they trying to Normalize the Trumps? They were forced to host the president of an allied country and are doing their duty and being as polite as possible. It’s not about Trump, it’s about keeping the alliance between their country and the US, regardless of whom is voted in as President. They only people to blame for Trump being in the UK are those that voted for him to be the US president!

      • Lightpurple says:

        Not a single major royal is in a single picture with the Trump spawn.

        They weren’t invited and he would have caused a major incident, at a time when GB needs trade alliances if the Royal Family barred them. So, they pretty much shunned them. Junior and Eric and Ivanka have no proof they met anyone other than Sophie, Anne, Harry, and Andrew.

        That UK and US taxpayers had to fund any of this is infuriating.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        @whatWhat, What is Mailorder?

      • Becks1 says:

        @Bay – she’s referring to Melania as a mail order bride.

      • holly hobby says:

        Well at least they didn’t let them sleep over and sully the sheets. I bet the Obamas and everyone before them got a Buckingham Palace sleepover.

        BP was conveniently under “remodel” so none of the 700+ rooms were available. HAHAH.

      • Lowrider says:

        It gross. I’m not impressed with the royals at all. This state visit proves how useless and powerless they really are. They stand for nothing.

      • Kelsey says:

        *There was no stay at Buckingham Palace like with with other state visits (you’re telling me all 700 rooms of Buckingham Palace are under “renovation”?)
        *No red carpet for his arrival off the plane
        *No golden state coach ride like other heads of state have received
        *Both lunch with the Queen and his visits with Prince Charles and Camilla were shorter than normal
        *They played the Darth Vader theme song when Trump came down to inspect he Royal Guards
        *On the Obamas state visit, The Queen gave Barack Obama historical letters and Michelle Obama a beautiful brooch. Trump got a 1st edition book written by Winston Churchill (’cause we all know what a great and prolific reader Trump is lol) and Melania got a silver box.

        The Queen did the bare minimum for a state visit – other leaders have gotten much more. I have no proof – obviously – but I wouldn’t be surprised if the Queen really didn’t want to do this but Theresa May begged her to do it over the mess Brexit has become.

        Also, as a few others have stated, most stories are that only Trump and Melania were officially invited. I’ve heard Ivanka and Jared may have been officially invited as well but everyone else apparently – especially the other kids and their spouses/significant others – were NOT invited and tagged along at expense to both U.S. and British taxpayers.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        @Kelsey, Thank your for your post. Thank you for defending QEII as she deserves all the defending that can be mustered. Very few people, on both sides of the great pond, wanted this official visit to take place. Hats off to Camilla for making this clear with the perfect wink and hats off to Melania (I cannot believe I am typing this) for doing the best she could do to exhibit some class and decorum among all these low rent bottom feeding grafters.

    • Salvation says:

      I strongly believe that the TPTB in the UK, ie: courtiers, British government and British security et al. strategically scheduled and placed members of the royal family to ensure that no one (except Trump and Melania) gets to be photographed with HM, and that was brilliant. And I believe the plan all along was to make sure that the entire entourage (Trump included) don’t get any posed photographs with any other members of the royal family, other than HM, and the Prince and Princess of Wales. The Trumps must be very disappointed that they have absolutely nothing to show for this trip in terms of pictures with the royal family. The only pictures of Harry with Ivanka clearly shows that he was not happy to be there or he was talking to someone else other than Ivanka. Oh, this was a really successful trip, the BRF stuck it to the Trumps real good.

  3. Becks1 says:

    Camilla’s dress here was really lovely. And I still think she is super brave for that glass of red wine with the white dress lol.

    I’m seeing so many comments on Twitter and comments sections of online newspapers (WaPo, NYT etc) about how “this is making me like her!” and stuff – I’m taking the opportunity for a full out pro Camilla blitz lol. I mean, there’s a hashtag for CamillaWinks lol

    And her diamonds are gorgeous. I kind of cant wait for her to be queen so we can see her with the really big guns of the British crown jewels.

    • cannibell says:

      So agree on the wine/dress. I’m a dirt magnet and would totally end up wearing it. :) (Maybe that explains Tiffany’s burgundy dress…..)

    • Himmiefan says:

      I love her wink, kind of like acknowledging that we’re all in on the joke of having to put up with the Munsters.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        The wink was perfection. The membership in the Camilla fan club has increased 10,000 fold due to that devilish wink.

    • Candikat says:

      That was my first and only thought! She wears a beautiful white dress and requests red wine? That’s the sign of a pro right there.

    • Some chick says:

      Yes. Not a Cam fan, but I’ve got to hand it to her for this one. She’s doing her duty in style. She gets that we get that she gets it.

      She has earned that glass of wine.

      I never thought I would say this, but I apologize to everyone across the pond for this disgrace.

  4. Enn says:

    Cam seems like such a fun broad. I’d love to have dinner with her. Style note, I love her dress and would happily wear that pretty bangle with the cabochon stone on her left wrist.

  5. OriginalLala says:

    I’d love to day drink with her and try on her amazing tiaras! ditto for her Maj…

  6. My3cents says:

    Well if there was ever an occasion to get shit faced and hopefully wake up a couple days later not remembering anything this would be it.

    • twoz says:

      It’s like a comment on a series of (Australian) Big Brother: “They’re complaining about them drinking? If I had to live with that lot I’d be shooting up in the toilet.”

  7. Lisa says:

    Camilla can really wear jewelry well. She looks good.

  8. Call_me_al says:

    Y’all are going to yell at me, but I do have to say that Melania has looked very pretty and appropriate throughout the visit. 😟

    • Iknow says:

      Melania is always well put together. My only issue with her is that her fashion isn’t effortless. It’s heavily curated and styled beyond its worth.

    • ADS says:

      I agree. The women dresses well, there is no denying that. But that white outfit on day one was a smidge tight… Off topic: I work right next to Westminster Abbey so I actually saw them that day. The security was insane. The royals and the Prime Minister are here all the time and I have never seen them surrounded by as much security as the Trumps were. We all had to walk around with our work IDs on display, we literally were not allowed to leave the building for most of the day, or even open our windows. It was maddening!

    • BayTampaBay says:

      @Call_me_al, Hanging my head in shame as I type this: I must agree with you. Melania looked to me like the only one who somewhat fit in and not out of place based on pictures I have seen. IMHO, Melania really was the only one who did embarrass herself and the USA.

      Then again it is not hard and does not take much to look good in the company of her husband’s family.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        meant to say “did not embarrass herself”. A case of mind working faster than fingers.

    • Chaine says:

      I agree. Although I think her clothing is always a bit too matronly for her age, her makeup and hair are perfect here, and the red color is striking.

    • Megan says:

      Her face is so jacked I have a hard time looking at her because I can’t find her eyes. It’s very confusing.

    • WhatNow? says:

      I agree; she did look pretty and seemed gracious. Being a model with constant access to couture and stylists, she better look good. She seems to have nailed her FLOTUS cosplay. I wish she’d step up and do something constructive as First Lady besides being a walking photo shoot.

    • Veronica S. says:

      It’s the least she can do since she’s hardly more than a visual prop.

    • Moneypenny says:

      The only redeeming thing (and it isn’t even redeeming) about her is that in general, she dresses beautifully. She’s missed the mark completely on this trip before this look.

    • PrincessK says:

      Melania is I believe, not as stupid as we think. We know that she did not want her husband to run for President but I do think that she has taken control of the situation she finds herself in, which is a powerful one. The first sign that she had woken up was when she dislodged First Daughter from the position of First Lady.

      Where Trump is concerned I am hoping that Melania will have the last laugh.

      • Some chick says:

        Wouldn’t THAT be RICH?!?!

      • Nic919 says:

        Dump is in obvious mental decline and as his spouse she will end up getting more control of things when he cannot hide his inability to function anymore. The boys are dumb but outside of Ivanka I also believe Melania will have the last laugh.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        This Royal visit has not only increased my respect for Camilla (which was sorta high to begin with) but much increased my respect for Melania.

    • Kelsey says:

      This is the only thing she does well.

  9. Digital Unicorn says:

    Well I would have put a straw in the bottle if I were stuck having to have dinner with the Trumps.

    She is popular with the Royal press pack, they’ve said that she will often go out of her way to make sure they get a good shot. By all accounts she has a wicked sense of humour.

  10. Pose83 says:

    Why is Melania dressed like she is just about to board the Titanic?

    Also, Camilla is now my favourite royal.

  11. Tina says:

    I truly love Camilla. Her anti-FGM work is excellent, and whilst she might not describe herself as a feminist, she’s been in the room when other people have called her one, and she hasn’t corrected them. Between Charles reading Trump the riot act about climate change (although he still doesn’t seem to understand that it’s not the same as weather) and Camilla’s wink, Charles and Camilla have come out of this visit pretty well.

    • Lightpurple says:

      And not a single picture of them with the Trump spawn has surfaced. Poor, poor Nagini.

    • IlsaLund says:

      What did Charles say to Trump about climate change? I’m sure it was a futile effort to educate the Orange buffoon.

      • Tina says:

        It was indeed. Charles apparently “did most of the talking,” (according to Trump) who praised his clear passion for the issue, but then went on to say that “the United States right now has among the cleanest climates there are based on all statistics. And it’s even getting better because I agree with that we want the best water, the cleanest water. It’s crystal clean, has to be crystal clean clear. China, India, Russia, many other nations, they have not very good air, not very good water, and the sense of pollution.” So yeah. A wasted effort. But at least Charles tried.

      • IlsaLund says:

        @Tina. OMG..what a word salad. That sounds like something a child would say. Poor Charles…he definitely earned his keep dealing with that orange clown.

      • Megan says:

        Good on Charles for trying. Someone needs to explain to Trump that there is not one single county in America that is in full attainment of the Clean Air Act requirements. Our air and water are cleaner than they were in the past, but we have a very long way to go and Trump’s rollbacks on environmental regulations are not helping.

      • jwoolman says:

        I didn’t realize that Flint, Michigan had seceded from the Union.

      • Jaded says:

        Oh Donald….”According to a 2009 report, around “60 percent of Americans live in areas where air pollution has reached unhealthy levels that can make people sick”.

      • BeanieBean says:

        ‘Sense of pollution’? What the hell does that even mean?

      • insertpunhere says:

        Just because I like to include this whenever anyone discusses anything even remotely related to clean water: it has been 1868 days since the people of Flint have had clean water.

        To paraphrase Miss Michigan, we’re a state that has 84% of the fresh drinking water in the country, just none for its residents.

        Sorry for the rant. My main office is in Flint, and I work with children, so the fact that people I directly know have been deemed disposable enough that we’re all just meh about poisoning them basically puts me in a blind rage.

      • Some chick says:

        Dear insertpunhere:
        Please, do not EVER apologize for sticking up for clean water or fairness for all. XOXOX.

  12. Beli says:

    If I were about to meet Trump and his brood you can bet I’d be slipping the butler a tip to keep the shots coming.

    Camilla seems like a fun broad.

  13. Cojji says:

    Camilla needs to find a better bra. But I’m guessing she has no f#cks to give.

  14. Hermione says:

    Whose the blond cos-playing Frozen in the first picture with Camilla and Melanie?

  15. Christine says:

    Melania looks like she could oversee a barbecue in hell in that red dress.

  16. MargaritasForBreakfast says:

    I nearly fell over laughing @ Cams is greeted with booze & shots wherever she goes! I actually snorted in my cubicle.

  17. SJR says:

    The entire group of BRF have done a really excellent job in tolerating Trump.
    The Queen, God Bless Her! At her age, she should be allowed to decline meetings with sickening people like Trump.
    Liz has done her duty for decades, she should give herself an extra medal for still going to work on a day with Trump. And, did you see her in fushia? She out shines everybody.

    I am still in a state of disbelief when I see pics like this with Trump. Trump is a world class liar and crook. Somebody should be at Dick Nixons gravesite apologizing for the things sad about him. Trump makes Nixon look like a flipping choirboy.

    Melina has excellent posture. Thats the nicest thing I can say.

    • BeanieBean says:

      Nixon would have made mincemeat out of trump.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      I agree about Melania’s posture, she should give Katie Keen lessons on how to stand straight.

      I also agree with other posters who’ve said she generally dresses well. I’ve said on another thread that she is the only Trump who makes an effort to behave respectfully and tries not to embarrass herself or the USA.

  18. anp says:

    I like Camilla.

  19. adastraperaspera says:

    So sorry the Trumps foisted themselves on our friends across the pond, but I felt that Camilla’s wink was the encouragement we all needed–just a little nudge to tell us to take heart, we’ll get these these treasonous lolly gaggers shoved overboard soon!

  20. Giddy says:

    It’s so embarrassing that TQ had to put up with our national crook. On his last day in the White House I hope that someone checks his bags for national treasures.

  21. intheknow says:

    I never ever thought I’d see see the day when I see Camilla is such a GOOD light. I was old enough to remember tampon gate, as I hit my 20s and got engaged to my very English husband, and getting to know his family and their love of Diana. Then Diana died. I woke up and found my husband crying. Then we drove to his parents home, the entire family came to his parents home, how ever one watched the news for days and days and cried. Me included. I didn’t understand how I could feel so much hate for Camilla, someone I hadn’t met.

    Who knew I could come to see Camilla in this light. She is fabulous. She is from my perspective 100% relatable. Sure, Diana had ‘charisma’ and seemed to connect with ‘real people’. But Diana even when connecting with real people still had that “Princess” vibe thing where you know she is in another stratosphere.

    Cam has her “Princess vibe” but somehow, I feel like one could be great girl friends with Cam. Hang out shopping in the day, look at the cute butts of men walking by while having a giggle about it. then dinner and drinks in the evening. I think the difference is, Camilla seems at ease with herself and being herself. She seems to have always been happy with herself, something Diana never really achieved in my opinion.

    Anyhow, I want to drink gin with Camilla.

    • MeghanNotMarkle says:

      Hear, hear. A gin and tonic for Cams. I feel the same way.

    • Nicole Papke says:

      I was a huge Diana fan from the time I watched their engagement and Royal wedding as a 10 year. Her death impacted me as well, I think for many layered reasons including a piece of my childhood being lost. However the years have allowed me to see Diana as a just a regular flawed human being and not the innocent doe-eyed princess in a fairy tale. I would love to have drinks with Camilla any day of the week and her cheeky wink made my day!

  22. Casey20 says:

    Yeah!!! New Camilla fan here! I didn’t see the thread dedicated to Camilla so I commented about her elsewhere. Camilla was the standout Royal for me. I knew he and Charles would do their duty with Trump however, Camilla was a surprise for me. She and Charles together look absolutely beautiful. She has this way about her that is both approachable and proceed with caution! I loved the fact that she silent!y upstaged Melania with little effort. We all know Melania spent endless hours trying to “look” regal and Camilla showed her what it was, effortlessly! Just take a look at the coup!es: Charles is perfectly tailored next to Trump in a short jacket and long vest at the State Dinner. At the Trump hosted Dinner, Camilla’s jewels clearly overshadowed anything Melania wore!!!

    • damejudi says:

      In complete agreement with you-Camilla and Charles look fantastic here.

      Can Donnie EVER button his jacket? Ugh.

    • liz says:

      Ah, yes. Camilla’s “oh, this was just laying around on top of my dresser” jewels. Featuring a diamond necklace & matching earrings that Charles had made for her, in front of a woman whose husband has famously said “I will not give my wives jewelry.”

      • outoftheshadows says:

        Did he really? Another reason for that ass to burn in hell. Jewelry is the very least they deserve for putting up with his narcissism.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      Re the jewels: Cams has access to the biggest collection of priceless bling there is so it won’t take much for a British royal to upstage in that respect. The Royal Collection (and TQ’s private collection) is world famous. Charles also has an eye for bling and he has had several pieces made over the years for Cams.

  23. Karen2 says:

    Her hair colour is fantastic. & that necklace is to die for. ( if you’re into that kind of thing). None of the Trump women have been wearing any kind of bling jewellery on this trip. & The cost of the outfits is strictly hierarchical from Melania down. More evidence that theres no billions around to tap any more.

    • Candikat says:

      That is a fascinating observation, and upon review I think you’re absolutely right!

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      I don’t think there is even millions for the Trumps to live off hence their desperation to grab as much taxpayer money as they can.

      I had a conversation about Trumps money the other day with a friend who said that the reason he is soo obsessed with hiding his tax returns is that they might show that he owns nothing, not even the Trump name. She thinks that he sold whatever he did own years ago and then sold the Trump name for an income (it is essentially a hotel franchise now). He has all these shell companies that I think are there to hide that he owns nothing, launders money for the Russian mob and to avoid paying tax.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        @Digital Unicorn, I 100% believe every word of your post! Keep up the good work.

    • PrincessK says:

      Camilla is wearing her hair in exactly the same style as when she was first courting Charles as a young woman.

  24. Jill2020 says:

    I’m wondering if all the white is in reference to the suffragette movement. The Queen, Camilla, Kate, all in white.

  25. Texas says:

    She is probably a blast to hang out with.

  26. Insomniac says:

    God, if I had to entertain that group of classless idiots, I’d be asking for a glass of strychnine. I don’t begrudge Camilla her wine at all. And the wink was awesome.

  27. Valerie says:

    I don’t like to drink to excess, but if I were so much as in the same building as Trump or Melania, I’d be knockin’ it back, too.

  28. livealot says:

    lmao. my girl!

  29. Lila says:

    Same way i get through dinner with the in-laws.

  30. Nan says:

    Team Camilla. She’s our girl.
