Camilla takes to the dancefloor in Bristol

The Duchess of Cornwall donned her dancing shoes on Tuesday morning as she took to the dancefloor during a tea party held in Bristol.

Camilla, who was originally watching other performers, couldn’t resist getting up to dance herself.

Queues of guests lined up to have a twirl with the Duchess, including The Sun photographer Arthur Edwards.

The 69-year-old was in Bristol to visit the Royal Voluntary Service, a charity that works to improve the lives of elderly people, and ensure that they remain active and independent in their later years.

Camilla has been President of the charity since 2012, just before they celebrated their 75th anniversary. The Duchess of Cornwall’s mother in law, The Queen, has been Patron since 1952.

Camilla is known to be a huge fan of dancing and often gets involved whenever there is an opportunity.

There are even rumours that she is about to replace Len Goodman as judge on Strictly Come Dancing.

Craig Revel Horwood, a fellow judge on Strictly, has said that the Duchess will be a perfect replacement.

He said last year: “Actually my best friend Camilla would’ve great. She’s a fantastic dancer. She moves with such grace and authority.”

Whether Craig can manage to persuade his friend to join the judging panel remains to be seen.

After her visit to the Royal Voluntary Service, the Duchess visited Women’s Aid, a charity which seeks to empower women who have been victim to abuse.

The Duchess of Cornwall was moved to tears as she heard from women who were speaking of their experience of domestic abuse.

The issue of domestic abuse is close to Camilla’s heart, and she has conducted many engagements visiting charities who try and empower women.

Domestic abuse can be life-threatening, more than a 100,000 people in the United Kingdom are at high and imminent risk of being seriously injured or murdered every year.

    Lynn Taylor,

    A very mean comment. It speaks to your Personality / SOUL. What has The Duchess done to you to justify your hate; if there is ever a justification for hatred?

    She is the Love Of Her Husband. She has contributed to His Happiness. Hopefully your
    involvement in someones life has improved their quality of life.
    She became The Duchess Of Cornwall as the wife Of The Prince Of Wales.

    If your observe the Duchess Of Cornwall without your preconceived prudishness. you will
    recognize A Gracious, Generous, Loving Lady. As we say in our language ” Wheel & come again”.

    Peace & Love.

    The Duchess of Cornwall may not be everyone’s favorite royal but you have got to admire a woman that has put up with all the ugly name calling and jokes tossed her way over all the years with such grace and poise. She has loved Prince Charles for many years and it is pretty crystal clear how he feels about her. Is it not time just to let her alone and let her finally have some peace and quiet.
