The Duchess toured the facilities offered by prospect hospice, meeting with staff, patients and volunteers. Camilla even tried on the hospice's virtual reality headset during her visit. Before departing, the Duchess cut a cake in celebration of the forty years of service that the hospice has given the community. xx
