Last week, Camilla opened up about the Duchess of Cambridge’s photography skills. “She did very good pictures, she does it very sort of naturally,” Camilla said in a clip from the ITV documentary celebrating her birthday.

“We had a lot of fun. It was very relaxed, and of course, very kind of the Duchess of Cambridge. She came with her camera, she’s an extremely good photographer and it was all very casual, it wasn’t much hair and makeup. It was just done in the garden with a lot of laughs and it was a lovely way of doing it.”
