Camilla Greeted by her Grandsons on a Visit to Marlborough
The Duchess of Cornwall visited Marlborough, Wiltshire, as part of the ongoing Diamond Jubilee tours. During her visit, she unveiled a 10ft long mosaic – part of the town’s local history exhibition – which was designed by local children. The Duchess also had a guided tour of the prison cells at Marlborough Town Hall, which she described as “spooky”.
A 200-strong crowd had gathered to greet the Duchess. Delighted, Camilla approached the people and spent several minutes talking to them.
She received a posy from ten-year-old Josephine Vergera who was overwhelmed by the honour. Josephine said: “I was very nervous but when I curtsied the words just came out. I said, these are for you, Your Royal Highness.”
But the most pleasurable part of the engagement was undoubtedly meeting her own grandsons, three-year-old twins Gus and Louis; Camilla’s daughter, Laura Lopez, lives locally and had come to the town hall with the boys. They didn’t go empty-handed too: while the Duchess was talking to the crowds, Lisa Hudson, manager of a local cake shop, presented her with some Halloween cakes for her grandchildren.Filed under The United Kingdom
