What an honour ... and usual that a centre in the Republic of Nigeria would have a Royal Patron.

  • Patron of the Helen & Douglas House
  • Joined HorseBack UK as the charity's patron
  • President of the Royal Voluntary Service
  • President of the WOW - Women of the World Foundation
  • Patron of the National Literacy Trust
  • President of the Royal Osteoporosis Society
That is just a small slice of her workload which, at 73 and going from an upmarket housewife to a working royal with a need for innate diplomacy, is no small feat.
The Duchess of Cornwall is a veritable asset to the Royal Family

So pleased that this center has opened for women in Nigeria and that Camilla has agreed to take on the patronage.

I think Camilla is the most unsung hero of the senior working royals and she doesn't go around seeking accolades either. She does what she wants to do or has to do and does it very well to the best of her ability. If things hadn't gone the way they did, I'm sure the majority of the public would be really looking forward to a Queen Camilla when the time does come.

I seem to remember that Camilla was leery of taking on such a public role but to watch her now, she seems to have been born to it.
