Down-to-earth DUCHESS!

Woman’s Day (NZ) - - A-List The Celebrity Hot Shots -

She might not have car­ried out an of­fi­cial in­au­gu­ra­tion just yet, but the Duchess of Corn­wall got to grips with the re­spon­si­bil­ity as she knighted a man at a farm­ing show in Sus­sex – with a leek.

Ful­fill­ing her role as Pres­i­dent of the South Eng­land Agri­cul­tural So­ci­ety, 69-year-old Camilla was way­laid by ac­tor Cal­lum Arnott, dressed as his al­ter ego Giles the Grumpy Farmer, who cheek­ily de­manded he be be­stowed a royal ti­tle. “I’m wear­ing my thigh-high rubber for you to­day. Can you knight me please?!” he shouted.

Dressed up in a pow­der-blue twin­set and kit­ten heels, Camilla stuck out like a sore thumb at the ru­ral event, where she cra­dled adorable lambs, posed with posies of flow­ers – and even gamely let a gi­ant stick in­sect scut­tle up her arm. “They are quite big,” Camilla said, wary of the creepy-crawly scut­tling to­wards her neck, later agree­ing the cute goats were “much bet­ter than a stick in­sect”!

Sword? Who needs one?! Camilla just takes a leek. “Arise, Sir Giles the Grumpy Farmer!” Ugh ... that gi­ant in­sect on her arm is giv­ing our duchess the creeps. VEGE-KNIGHT! SHE’S A GOOD STICK! Hello, petal!
