Duchess Camilla’s recent visit to Llanerch Vineyard has inspired royal fans as she let her sense of humor shine through during her tour of Wales.  

Duchess Camilla and Prince Charles have been delighting royal fans in recent days as they continue their week-long Welsh tour. Many were quick to express their excitement after Prince Charles was spotted in an Iceland supermarket, whilst others were impressed with the way Duchess Camilla's childhood hobby was celebrated with a meaningful gift in Hay-on-Wye. Though it was Duchess Camilla’s trip to Llanerch Vineyard in the stunning Glamorgan countryside that has left fans keen to join her.

New videos taken on the day and shared by the official Clarence House Twitter account showcase the Duchess of Cornwall’s warmth and sense of humor. 

Walking amongst the vines in the glorious sunshine, Camilla was handed a leaf and joked, “There’s nothing like a good vine leaf”, amusing the owner of Llanerch Vineyard, Ryan Davies, who accompanied her.

The Duchess, who is President of Wines of Great Britain, then went on to sample one of the vineyard’s wines, declaring it, “Pretty good”, whilst smiling at Ryan, seemingly indicating that despite her modest initial comment, it was very delicious.

“Just right on a day like this,” she continued, before prescribing it “absolutely fantastic”, to the delight of the staff members around her. And it seems Duchess Camilla’s vineyard visit has left many royal fans inspired, with some keen to join her for a wine-tasting trip of their own. 

‘Camilla, Princess of Wines’, one declared, crafting a hilarious pun on the traditional royal title ‘Princess of Wales’, which Camilla does not use, reportedly as a mark of respect to the late Princess Diana who previously held this title. 

‘Oh my... I'd do anything to have a glass of champagne with her,just once in a lifetime’, another fan wrote.

‘Wish I was there’ someone else commented, whilst another shared: ‘OMG. So jealous. What a lovely day out.’

‘This looks like a fun engagement! Cheers!’ a fellow fan wrote, echoing this sentiment. 

The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Charles' week-long tour of Wales is an annual trip. Since being officially granted the title of Prince of Wales in 1969 at Caernarfon Castle, Prince Charles, has taken his position incredibly seriously. 

Though the couple's primary residence remains Clarence House in London, with Highgrove House in Gloucestershire their country home, they also have a property in Llwynywermod in Llandovery. The Prince of Wales reportedly headed to his Welsh country home to grieve Prince Philip after his funeral in April. 

Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla's annual tour of Wales is likely an incredibly meaningful trip for the couple.
