Duchess brave the storm to de­light of school chil­dren

Evening Times - - NEWS -

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.
