King Charles’ wife Camilla receives a warm welcome as she arrives in Lacock with two rescue dogs


Queen Consort Camilla was greeted by heroes during a special visit to a Wiltshire village on Wednesday with her two rescue dogs.

The wife of King Charles III arrived at St Cyriac’s Church to see Beth and Bluebell, her Jack Russell terriers, waiting outside with well-wishers and local residents on Wednesday.

Camilla first visited the church, which has been a center of Christian worship since at least the late 12th century and has 900 parishioners. She then planted a hawthorn tree as part of The Queen’s Green Canopy, which was created to mark the Platinum Jubilee in 2022.

The Royal Family shared the clip of the moment on their official social media account, captioned: “A wonderful afternoon at Lacock! Her Majesty met members of the community – including the congregation of St Cyriac and the staff who work in the local village shops.”

The hawthorn was planted with a holly and wild apple tree, as part of the church’s initiative and work to create a more natural and bio-diverse graveyard.

She then walked from the church to the village shops accompanied by Hilary McGrady, chief executive of the National Trust.

After admiring the hand-poured soy wax candles, fondants and reed diffusers, Camila told the owners, “I will be back. I’ll be back to do some shopping.

Camilla also visited the National Trust shop, which is in a historic terraced cottage, stopping along the way to chat with local residents – many of whom were joined by their dogs.
