A regular royal watcher who did not make it to Sandringham this Christmas has received a bunch of flowers from the Duchess of Cornwall.

Mary Relph, who is a familiar face at the estate every time the royal family are there, was in hospital recovering from a major operation.

But her absence did not go unnoticed.

The Duchess of Cornwall sent her a bunch of flowers with a card saying: "Dear Mary, these come with many healing thoughts for a speedy recovery. All my best wishes, Camilla."

The Duchess of Cornwall is due to visit Milton Keynes today. She'll visit a charity that trains dogs to help people with life threatening conditions.

She'll also stop off at Bletchley Park, the home of the Second World War code breakers, and attend a reception dedicated to the women who worked there during that time.
