Camilla wore a simple housedress for her tour, perhaps assuming she'd pick up some couture freebies along the way.

"My husband is going to be King one day and he'd just love the excuse to invade France again, I'll have you know."

Dior CEO Sidney Toledano steps in. "Wait, Stanley, this is the best you have to offer?"

"I think I'll keep my nightie on after all, thank you very much. In fact, I'm beginning to wish I just stayed in bed."

"Well, yes I would actually. Back at the palace we do love a good laugh at the commoners' expense."

Post-Dior, Camilla goes for a stroll with French Ambassador Sir Peter Ricketts.

"It's all gone downhill since that blasted revolution, hasn't it? I tell you, Charles and I couldn't even watch Les Miserables and we both love Hugh Jackman."

French butchers were a lot more prepared to share their wares with the Duchess, you see.
