The Duchess of Cornwall has been visiting Bowood House - home to Marquis and Marchioness of Lansdowne in Wiltshire - this afternoon, getting into the Christmas spirit as she joined them for their first Christmas Extravaganza. The Duchess even did some of her Christmas shopping!
The Duchess also bought a cream jug with a Union Jack on the side and a grey and red union jack-patterned dog neckerchief.
The event is helping to raise funds for the Wiltshire Bobby Van Trust, whom she is a patron.
The Duchess was also treated to a short Christmas carol performance in the chapel by the chamber choir from St Mary's School in Calne.
Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall will be in Wiltshire and Gloucestershire. The Duchess will visit flood victims in Malmesbury before the royal couple move on to Tetbury, where they'll switch on the town's Christmas lights.
