Royally Ink’d

Last week we?tweeted?about’Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall and the new �addition� she got while on an eight day tour of Zanzibar.

While the tattoo was just a henna tattoo, the reactions were no less passionate than if the royal Duchess had gotten permanently ink�d.

In an?interview,’Camilla’revealed how even nine days after she originally received the henna tattoo, she was still unable to remove it. The Duchess even had to attend a state banquet being hosted by the Queen with the fading, smudged henna still visible on her hand.

Can you imagine if she had gotten a real tattoo, spur of the moment?

Here’s to hoping’Camilla’s able to get her henna off sooner rather than later. We know of a few ways to remove non-permanent henna ink. eHow recommends methods that include swimming and soaking inked skin in hot water. Perhaps Camilla could try a good scrub with a heavy duty loofa or going for a run to work up a good sweat?

Whatever her chosen method, we wish her the best of luck (of course)!
