Duchess of Cornwall says guest-editing The Emma Barnett Show was ‘a wonderful experience’

The Duchess of Cornwall has called her recent guest-edit of The Emma Barnett Show a ‘wonderful experience’ in a touching note written to a royal fan. 

Camillam, 73, took on her first-ever radio guest edit on the BBC Radio 5 Live programme in July where she opened up about life in lockdown and some of her work with her patronages. 

Royal fan @GertsRoyals has now revealed a thankyou letter sent by the Duchess after she took her time to send birthday congratulations and praise her for her appearance on the show. 

In the note which was shared on Twitter, the Duchess wrote: ‘Thank you for your kind letter about my recent Guest Edit of the Emma Barnett Show. I am so glad you enjoyed the programme. It was a wonderful experience, and I was delighted that so many of my charities, including SafeLives, were able to participate.’

She went on: ‘I do hope you and your family have been safe and well during this challenging time.’ 

The duchess appeared to have personally signed the note in black ink, finishing the note: ‘With best wishes, Camilla.’ 

Her distinctive solo royal monogram – boasting her initial C and a coronet – featured at the top of the letter.

The personalised letter differs from Camilla’s birthday thankyou note which was revealed earlier this month by a different royal fan, and features an unseen photograph of the Duchess.

The card included a snap of the duchess casually dressed in jeans with a blue sweater over a pink shirt, while posing on the steps outside her Scottish home of Birkhall.
