Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, tried her hand at making a traditional Cornish pasty as she and Charles continued their royal visit to the county from which she takes her title.  

The Duchess was pictured getting stuck in at Ginsters HQ, with her effort at making the Cornish staple ending up a bit rough around the edges. 

A chef reassured the Duchess that her efforts were ‘superb’, but she replied that her pasty was ‘very wibbly wobbly’.

She then agreed with the chef’s tongue-in-cheek statement that the pasty would be ‘unique’, before getting a round of applause for her attempt. 

‘With a bit of practice I think I’d get the hang of it,’ she said as she dusted the excess flour off her hands, before diving back in to craft the pastry further. 

She was then shown how to do it by the experts, before Paul Milner, Managing Director of the company, showed her the final packaged product.
