Camilla helps Charles 


Don't push your friend on his derrière

As Prince Charles visited a regiment of the Royal Air Force returning from a mission in Afghanistan, the Duchess of Cornwall pushed his derrière, above, trying to assist him to climb into an Apache helicopter.

No matter how elegantly she was dressed – perhaps a little too much for a visit to a military unit – she undid the good impression she wished to make. By touching the posterior of the Prince of Wales, she committed an enormous gaffe.

A well-raised person never does such a thing before others, especially if she/he is performing a public act. Mothers should teach this rule to their children from their early childhood.

Do not push your friend on his derrière.
