The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall attended the Sandringham Flower Show yesterday and a picture that was sent into us from the event made us chuckle.

Obviously the Royal pair have impeccable manners, but you wouldn't think so looking at the picture above.

It looks as though Prince Charles' playful side is coming out - maybe having a bit of fun with the crowd?

But if we zoom out it all becomes clear - it was Camilla's hand, not Charles'.

We wouldn't have thought any less of him if it was our future King's hand!!

The Norfolk schoolboy dubbed "Mini Monet" is staging his latest summer art exhibition - featuring his own paintings and those of his hero.

Kieron Williamson, who was a multi millionaire at only 11, already has a big collection of work by Edward Seago that he bought with his earnings.

It is now 40 years since the artist's death. He was a favourite of the Queen Mother and taught Prince Philip and Prince Charles to paint.

A great success: The vacuum cleaner still going strong after 78 years

An 82-year-old man from Holbeach near Peterborough has a vacuum cleaner that's almost as old as he is.

Bernard Storey got the 1936 Hoover from his late mother and he's still able to clean his carpets with it.

Bernard acquired it when his mother Emma passed away and she got it from a family she had worked for as a cleaner.

A couple from Hertfordshire are set to bring their wedding plans forward after winning nearly £800,000 on the lottery.

Insurance manager, Lesley Blackman, 40, from Ware, found out about the win while manning a car boot stall with fiancé Matthew McCarthy.

The pair experienced a surge of generosity and sold everything for £1 an item to make £150 on top of the £799,255 jackpot share.

Lesley said: “I really couldn't concentrate for the rest of the day and just kept telling everyone that everything was a pound so I think some bargains were had.

“We have been planning to get married for a while now with a small gathering of family and friends in Lake Como, Italy, but we weren’t able to afford it. With this win we’ll still have exactly the same wedding but we can now set a date sooner rather than later.

"I’m so happy, I can’t wait to organise it."

Lesley is also hoping to buy a horse to rekindle her love of the animals and start riding again.

Her winning numbers were 5, 10, 16, 23, 31 and 44 and she won a share of the £4.79 million jackpot.
