Duchess brave the storm to delight of school children
THE Duchess of Cornwall braved stormy weather on Royal Deeside to visit a tiny village school.
Camilla’s arrival at Crathie Primary in Aberdeenshire was delayed by a tree on the road as the area, home to the royals’ Balmoral residence, was lashed by high winds and heavy rain.
She was given a tour of the school , which has just nine pupils, before visiting a new games pavilion in nearby Braemar.
Camilla, who is known as the Duchess of Rothesay in Scotland, shared her love of the local area and its wildlife with the pupils.
She said she had never seen a capercaillie but had been fortunate to see some golden eagles.
