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!
She (Camilla) came to the stall and loved the array of toys I had, the traditional toys, and she purchased a big teddy puzzle from me.
"She commented about the toys but didn't mention the new royal baby. It was just a delight to meet her.
The Duchess also bought a cream jug with a Union Jack on the side and a grey and red union jack-patterned dog neckerchief.
I believe she said they were for her two jack russells.
Lady Lansdowne had earlier bought one for her cocker spaniel, who has been running around with it on, so I think that helped.
I'm just thrilled she chose to buy from us and it was very pleasant to meet her. She was very nice and friendly.
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.
