Charles (73) and Camilla (74), say that they have a’snap in their celery’, and plan to continue overseas tours for the Queen and country

  • The couple was speaking after they had completed their Middle East trip.
  • Over four days, they performed more than 30 engagements in Jordan and Egypt
  • Camilla explained that Camilla’s trip was more than just about taking holiday pictures.
  • It was, instead, about strengthening bi-lateral relationships, said she.

The Duchess of Cornwall says she and Charles ‘still have a snap in their celery’ and are determined to continue foreign tours for Queen and country.

Camilla was 74 years old and spoke as the prince (73) finished their thrilling Middle Eastern tour for the government. 

And she stressed that their trip, which saw them carry out more than 30 engagements between them over four days in Jordan and Egypt, was far from being about ‘holiday pictures’ but about helping to build stronger bi-lateral relations.
