The Duchess of Cornwall came face to face with artwork of herself and the Prince of Wales at a traditional art fair in India.

It marks day seven of a nine-day tour of India, during which the couple attended a centre for abused and abandoned children and a remembrance service in Mumbai.

Touring the fair in Aluva, in the state of Kerala, Camilla also came across a miniature version of the couple on their wedding day - captured inside a bottle.

The glass bottle artwork was made by Sherin Manadath, who runs an academy teaching craft skills.

She said: "It only took about 10 minutes to make. I stuck the picture inside the bottle and added coloured gel. I made it especially for the Duchess and she said 'It's wonderful, amazing'."

Camilla also visited the Government School of Nursing at Ernakulam, where she was presented with more gifts. Credit: PA

Camilla browsed the other crafts, from musical instruments to wooden animals and paintings, at Aluva Palace, once the summer home of the Travancore royal family and now a state-run guest house.

All of the artists had benefited from the Kudumbashree project which fosters their entrepreneurial skills and encourages women to form self-help groups.

The project has a membership of 3.7 million with more than 50% of households in Kerala involved and it also works on developing housing, water and agriculture initiatives.
