Camilla goes to school and not wed­ding


THE Duchess of Corn­wall in­spected stuffed an­i­mals with chil­dren at a tiny vil­lage school in Aberdeen­shire as Princess Eu­ge­nie wed at Wind­sor Cas­tle.

Camilla (be­low) vis­ited the pri­mary near the royal res­i­dence of Bal­moral as hus­band Charles at­tended the wed­ding of his niece to Jack Brooks­bank.

It is un­der­stood that Fri­day’s in­vi­ta­tion was a long­stand­ing one and the duchess did not want to let the school­child­ren down.

Camilla’s ar­rival at Crathie Pri­mary just be­fore 11am — around the time Eu­ge­nie and her fa­ther, the Duke of York, ar­rived at St Ge­orge’s Chapel — was de­layed due to a tree on the road in very blus­tery weather.

She was given a tour of the school — which has just nine pupils — by 11-year-old Lo­gan Beedie and Zara Jones (10).

They showed her project work that they had been do­ing on the Cairn­gorms and in­tro­duced her to a host of stuffed an­i­mals given to the school, in­clud­ing an ot­ter, grouse and hind.
