Camilla is undertaking her second visit of the day in the village of Lacock in Wiltshire. She is visiting the 12th century St Cyriac’s Church, the venue of her daughter Laura’s wedding in 2006. The Queen Consort’s rescue dogs, Beth and Bluebell, made a surprise appearance on the visit – much to the delight of royal fans.
In a video from this afternoon’s visit to Camilla’s home town, the two Jack Russel Terriers appeared overly excited as they caught a glimpse of her leaving the car.
The dogs yapped and attempted to bound towards her as she greeted community representatives from the town.
Camilla adopted the two dogs from the Battersea Dogs and Cats Home in London in February 2017 and are much-loved members of the household, with King Charles also being a self confessed dog lover.
She previously spoke to BBC Radio 5 Live about her love of dogs, and said: “The nice thing about dogs is you can sit them down, you could have a nice long conversation, you could be cross, you could be sad and they just sit looking at you wagging their tail.”
In July 2022 the two rescue dogs appeared on the cover of the Country Life wearing Camilla’s own pearl necklaces.
This afternoon, Camilla is meeting community representatives at St Cyriac’s Church and will then plant a tree as part of The Queen’s Green Canopy initiative.
She will then proceed into the village to visit local shops and speak to local residents.
