Camilla's cameo: Duchess takes role on The Archers

Thursday February 3, 2011

On February 16, the Duchess of Cornwall will arrive in the fictional village of Ambridge as a special guest on long-running radio soap, The Archers.

Camilla recorded her slot at Clarence House just before Christmas, and will appear in her capacity as the President of the National Osteoporosis Society.

Prince Charles' wife is a huge fan of the show, and was keen to help it celebrate its 60th anniversary, as well as taking the opportunity to talk about the UK charity.

She is not the first member of the royal family to appear in The Archers.

In 1984 Princess Margaret took part in a short scene at a NSPCC fundraising fashion event.
