Camilla carried out two engagements yesterday at Clarence House and Malborough House. Any details?

July 14 she hosted a reception at Clarence house for victims of domestic abuse.

Duchess of Cornwall delivers heartfelt speech on domestic abuse victims at Clarence House | Daily Mail Online

She gave a speech

Quote:
'This silence is corrosive: It leaves women, children - and men - carrying the burden of shame, it prevents them from speaking out about their abuse and it prevents them from getting help.
'And at its worst, it can be fatal.
She also attended the opening of the Woman leader's summit at Marlburough House.

Quote:
After lunch HRH The Duchess of Cornwall paid a surprise visit to the Summit. Today she had her own meeting on domestic violence, but she wanted to show her solidarity with women at the Commonwealth meeting.

I think it's excellent that Camilla chose to attend this meeting and show her support for the women of the Commonwealth, and victims of domestic violence everywhere.

You know Camilla really does have her own nice touch with kids. You can see she really engages when she reads to the kids, maybe the granny in her

I agree Countessmeout. Literacy is a big area with Camilla and she fits so well into that role. Stems from having a deep love for reading herself. If there is one thing I think all kids should find and develop in childhood, its the love of reading. A treasure trove of adventures through time and places await when you open a book.

Great speech. I thought it was interesting that the JDRF got the PM to attend as well, and how Camilla linked her speech to the PM's own experience of living with Type 1 Diabetes.

From all the photos and videos I have seen I say that The Duchess of Cornwall had a lot of fun with the children and the children were happy to be invited.

What a great gesture from her.

Not too far in the past there was an article posted and a picture of the Christmas tree at Clarence House and I thought to myself "where are the kids with Camilla that always decorate the tree around this time of the year?". I am relieved to see that it did actually take place as its one of the most endearing, unique to Camilla events that I look forward to seeing.

Camilla never disappoints when it comes to events like this. She is a natural at making people feel at ease and relaxed in her company and those kids and their families had a day that will be fond memories for a long time.

One of the nicest events in the Royal Calendar in my opinion. Everyone looks very happy, contented and full of seasonal good will in the photos. Good on Camilla for holding this event.

I agree that this is one of the BRF's December highlights. Happy that these families and their children can enjoy some precious joyful time together.

Camilla has taken over 1 new patronage from the Queen:
Barnardo's

There are also 2 other likely ones on the list, but they’ll officially confirm in 2017.
