It was a special day at Falmouth's Park Children's Centre today as mums, parents and staff welcomed Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall.

The Duchess visited children, mums and staff at the centre to play with the children and see the work done for young parents at the WILD Young Children's Project.

The Duchess spoke to young mums while they made a collage about their emotions and told them all about her own family.

Afterwards she met four of the youngsters playing in the crèche, where she got to hold the babies and play with the toddlers.

Three-year-old Abby Brown, dressed as a princess, presented the Duchess with a posy to mark her visit, while Jamie Barrett, aged two, was laughing with her and smiling for the cameras.

All of the mums admitted feeling nervous at the prospect of meeting royalty, but were agreed that she was relaxed and friendly, and described meeting her as "an honour."
