Modigliani's 'Reclining Nude' Sells For $170 Million
Huffington Post - over 1 year
NEW YORK (AP) — A painting by Amedeo Modigliani fetched $170.4 million at an auction Monday, setting a world record for the artist and achieving the second highest price ever garnered for a work of art at auction. "Reclining Nude" was sold at Christie's in Manhattan after a protracted bidding battle. Considered one of his best known works, the 1917-1918 painting nearly created a scandal when it was first exhibited in Paris. It depicts an unknown nude model reclining on a crimson couch and blue cushion. The previous auction record for a Modigliani was $71 million. Pablo Picasso's painting "Women of Algiers (Version O)" set the record for the highest sum ever paid for an artwork at auction. It sold for $179.4 million at Christie's in May. Works by Roy Lichtenstein and Paul Gauguin also were poised to set artist auction records in the curated auction at Christie's. A Lichtenstein work not seen on the market for 20 years also is on tap. "Nurse," which has a stellar exhib ...

Prince Charles And Camilla's Love Nest Is For Sale
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The house where Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles conducted their affair in the early '90s is now for sale, according to Country Life magazine (via Express UK.) The home, known as Glyn Celyn House, is owned by Nic Paravicini, the former business partner and brother-in-law of Andrew Parker Bowles, Camilla's first husband. It is being listed for £1.95 million. According to an article published by The Mirror in August 1996 -- the year Prince Charles and Princess Diana divorced -- an unnamed housekeeper at Glyn Celyn House said that Prince Charles and his mistress were "regulars" at the estate, and started visiting together as early as 1992. "It's quite often," she said. "They feel safe here because nobody knows about the place." In that same article, Tom Harrison, who lived 500 yards from Glyn Celyn House at the time, said that neighbors had long suspected that Prince Charles visited the estate, but no one was aware of his visits' adulterous nature. "Rum ...

Camilla Parker-Bowles' Craziest Hats
Huffington Post - over 4 years
All of the many very stylish members of the British Royal Family (Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie and Kate Middleton included) have one thing in common: A penchant for fantastically imaginative hats. Prince Charles' wife of seven years Camilla is no exception. The Duchess of Cornwall, formerly known as Camilla Parker Bowles, might even rival the younger royals when it comes to head gear. Since she married into the family in 2005 after divorcing her husband Andrew Parker Bowles, Camilla has stepped up her formal-wear. Always a conservative dresser, Camilla favors blue, purple and pastel-colored monochromatic outfits (which include matching bags, shoes and, yes, even hats). To celebrate the Duchess of Cornwall's 65th birthday on Tuesday July 17th, we're taking a look back at some of her craziest hats and many suits over the year. What do you think of Camilla's style?

The jubilee was a huge success: for the Queen, of course, but also for Camilla. It’s now time to accept her as the palace already does: as our future Queen
Catholic Herald - over 4 years
It was, by general consent, a significant moment: when the Queen came out on to the balcony after the carriage procession to Buckingham Palace on Tuesday, there were only five other royals with her: No Prince Andrew, no Princess Royal; no Prince Edward (he was visiting his father in hospital). This was the inner core of the royal family: Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge; Prince Harry; Prince Charles and—yes—PRINCESS Camilla, the Princess of Wales: for that is what she is by law, and it is time now that that is how she should become officially designated. All this “Duchess of Cornwall” stuff was to cope with the still remaining post-Diana hostility to her. She was treated as a marginal royal, on the very edge of “the firm”, barely tolerated as such. It is a sign of how very well she has done, how hard and successfully she has worked to reverse this perception, that the Queen could make the implicit declaration she did by coming on to the balcony, without Prince Philip, but wi ...
