Call it royal déjà vu. The Duchess of Cornwall, in bare feet and a head scarf while visiting Cairo's 1,000-year-old Al-Azhar mosque March 21, conjured the image of her onetime nemesis, Diana Princess of Wales, who toured the same site in 1992. Accompanying Prince Charles on only her second trip abroad since they married, Camilla sported a gray tunic and white silk slacks by her favorite designer, Robinson Valentine, and, away from the mosque, gray suede wedge heels. "I call it the Togetherness Tour," says royals author Judy Wade of the couple, who have continued on to Saudi Arabia and India, where he discussed religious tolerance and sustainable farming. "They are seen arm-in-arm. They are really supporting each other."
