Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall was spotted in a chic face mask as she visited cosmetics store Boots.

The Duchess of Cornwall was seen out and about in London yesterday carrying out important engagements as she sported a chic reusable face mask.

Duchess Camilla visited high-street cosmetics store Boots to honour the hard work that employees have done throughout the coronavirus lockdown.

“You have been a lifeline to a lot of people.. So thank you very much indeed,” she said in a quote shared by the Clarence House Instagram page.

The Duchess of Cornwall today thanked staff at @bootsuk, who have continued to support patients and customers with essential pharmacy services throughout lockdown,’ Clarence House continued.

Boots set up and ran the first drive-through COVID-19 testing station for NHS workers in just 5 days. Today, hundreds of Boots colleagues continue to perform swab tests on those with suspected COVID-19 symptoms.

‘Partnered with @hestia_charity, Boots also offers victims of domestic abuse access to specialist support and advice inside the safe space of a consultation room,’ they explained. ‘The scheme responds to the desperate situation facing many victims who have been isolating with perpetrators during lockdown. In the first week of Boots’ safe spaces being available, it is estimated over 100 people accessed them.

‘During the visit, Her Royal Highness heard that Boots have delivered 3,993 wash bags, as part of the Wash Bag Project, to Sexual Assault Referral Centres (SARCs) in the last month. Launched by The Duchess in 2017, the Wash Bag Project donates a wash bag of toiletries to SARC clients, who have undergone a forensic examination, to provide some comfort at a sensitive time’.

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...).
