The Duchess of Cornwall decorates Christmas Trees
The Duchess of Cornwall was getting into the Christmas spirit during her latest engagement. Camilla invited children supported by Helen & Douglas House and the Roald Dahl Fund to Clarence House to participate in Christmas activities. The Children decorated a Christmas Tree, enjoyed a Christmas feast and got to meet Reindeer in the Clarence House Garden during their visit.
Captain Ross of the Welsh Guards was on hand to help the children decorate the tree, showing off am impressive sword technique. The Duchess of Cornwall helped serve lunch to the children, many of who are living with life limiting conditions which can make celebrating the holidays difficult.
After lunch, they were treated to a visit from Dancer and Blitzen in the garden at Clarence House. During the visit the Duchess spoke about how it can be difficult to have a child with a life limiting condition, especially around the holidays. She shared her joy in all of the children being able to come and join the festivities saying "it was a real treat".
