WASHINGTON - Prince Charles dryly pronounced himself "still here" and "alive" Wednesday on his arrival at the White House for a visit showing of his new wife, Camilla.

The Duchess of Cornwall, seemingly hoping to impress American Diana-philes on her first overseas trip as a British royal, was decidedly more enthusiastic.

Greeted by President Bush and his wife, Laura, with a no pomp welcome, the all-smiles Camilla could be heard declaring something Laura Bush said was "fabulous". As the foursome headed inside for a private lunch, Camilla briefly lagged, straying off the red carpet and showing jostling media horde a shy grin and a little wave.

There was no shortage of pageantry for the Brisitsh royal couple in the evening.. A rare white House black tie evening featured buffalo for dinner, music by cellist Yo-Yo Ma and dancing with several dozen luminaries from the world of politics, history, writing, diplomacy and sports -- but few high-wattage celebrities.

The menu last Wednesdays' White House Dinner:
* Celery broth with crispy rock shrimp
* Newton chardonnay unfiltered 2002
* Medallions of buffalo tenderloin
* Roasted com
* Wild rice pancakes
* Glazed parsnips and young carrots
* Peter Micahel pinot poir Le Moulin Rouge 2002
* Mint romaine lettuce with blood orange vinaigerette
* Vermont Camembert cheese and spiced walnuts
* Petit fours
* Chartreuse ice cream, red and green grape sauce
* Iron Horse Wedding Cuvee 2002

Table setting:
* Clinton china
* Vermeil flatware
* Gold pintuck silk table-cloths.
* Spray of white phalaenopsis orchids with camella follage in the historic Whie House vermeil candelabras
