2005_11_camillachuckmoma.jpgPrince Charles and his "darling wife" Camilla wrapped up the NYC portion of their visit by having snacks with the swank at the Museum of Modern Art. Since Gothamist has been intrigued by the royals since our parents bought those commemorative "Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer wedding steins," we're unable to resist the coverage. The NY Post shows its true-to-Princess-Di colors by calling the celebrities who tried to meet the couple "silly" and offers quotes from "underwhelmed" New Yorkers; the Daily News is more objectively positive, headlining "Bowles 'em Over." The Observer gives the fashion report, aghast at Camilla's fuschia suit at Ground Zero but much happier with her evening wear ("she looked kinda hot—almost aging-Bond-girl hot"). The NY Times called their visit a "Low-Key U.S. Debut" which really means "BORING!" Gothamist guesses that the best part of their trip might be Stephen Colbert's "The Word" segment on The Colbert Report last night, as he guessed that Camilla was the Prince's "Merlin" (enter picture of Camilla with a sorcerer's hat Photoshopped on) and told the paparazzi to take better care of this wife of Chuck (oh, snap!).

One woman stood outside the UN with a poster reading, "Camilla, You're No Diana". God bless 'em, there's a protester for everything in thie city. And Simon Doonan writes about his royal leanings and the new 2005 Barneys holiday windows in the Observer.
