Duchess Of Cornwall

The Duchess of Cornwall radiated elegance as she stepped out in a designer coat and stylish blue dress yesterday.

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall went about her royal duties yesterday when she visited a volunteering centre in Rickmansworth.

The Royal Voluntary Service, a charity that supports those in need from hospitals and local communities, saw Duchess Camilla make a visit to join the group in their lunch club.

Royal Voluntary Service President, HRH The Duchess of Cornwall joined us at one of our lunch clubs today and thanked volunteers for dedicating their time to help others 👏,’ wrote the charity on their Instagram page.

At the club HRH helped serve up lunch and met volunteers and diners, like Doris Winfield (aged 86), who The Duchess of Cornwall previously met via a ‘check in and chat’ call, while Doris was self-isolating in April.’

‘Thanking the volunteers, The Duchess said: “You do the most wonderful job. I’m very, very proud to be part of the RVS”,’ wrote the Clarence House Instagram page, alongside a series of photos and videos of the Duchess during her afternoon with the group.

The Duchess was invited to visit the lunch club by 86-year-old Doris Winfield (seen speaking to HRH in the first video) who HRH chatted to on the phone during lockdown,’ they added. ‘The pair have been exchanging letters ever since and today were able to meet for the first time in person! 👋’.

And like always, the Duchess looked fabulous as she carried out her royal engagements, sporting a stylish Burberry trench coat and an elegant blue shift dress.

And of course, she finished off her trendy outfit with an enviable handbag from one of her favourite London designers, Aspinal of London.

Aleesha is digital shopping writer at woman&home - so whether you're looking for beauty, fashion, health or home buys, she knows all the best places to splash your cash. She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a fun Rioja and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.


Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
