Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla are total couple goals in matching tartan during a recent trip. The royal couple look just as loved up as ever during official outing in Scotland.


Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla were twinning on a recent outing in Ayr, Scotland. The royal couple is back on official duties after their summer holidays, but it looks like they're still enjoying Scotland after their Balmoral break.

Among their many titles, Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla are the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay. It was as such that they met the local residents and shopkeepers of Alloway Main Street. After this they made a trip to the cottage where Scottish poet Robert Burns was born in 1759.

The Duchess, who recently revealed her secret recipe for the perfect Victoria sponge, looked delighted, and dare we say smitten, as they posed outside the famous poet's house.

The Duke and Duchess were given a tour of the historic cottage and they were offered the opportunity to see the original Auld Lang Syne manuscript. The Duchess is sure to have enjoyed a chance to read such an important piece of history, if the recent portrait of her 'idea of perfection' is anything to go by.

Prince Charles has been Patron of Friends of the National Libraries since 2014. A fitting role for someone so passionate about culture. The charity's aim is to save written and printed heritage. As we speak, it's currently working to save manuscripts from the Honresfield Library. 

These manuscripts include work of the Brontës, Jane Austen, Walter Scott, and Robert Burns. The private collection was due to go to auction at Sothebys and there has been a campaign to save these historical works for the UK.

The royals are currently making their way around Scotland, meeting locals and visiting historic sites. 

This included a trip to Dumfries House where they unveiled a knitted art installation. The installation is made up of colorful knitted squares from all over the world, including Italy, Belgium, Tasmania, the United States, and Canada.

The project is a part of the Prince's Foundation, which was recently rocked by allegations that one of Prince Charles' closest aides fixed a CBE for wealthy tycoon.
