It's a stressful job planning a wedding. Especially when your husband-to-be is the future King of England.
But Kate Middleton was given some invaluable advice this week – from the woman who will soon be her step-mother-in-law.
Diners at an upmarket London restaurant were surprised to see the Duchess of Cornwall giving Kate some pointers during a lunch date.
Joining them at Koffmans, the new restaurant at the Berkeley Hotel in Knightsbridge, were Kate's sister Pippa and Camilla's daughter Laura Lopes.
A fellow diner told a Daily Mail columnist: "All four women were talking away like mad and none of the waiters could get a word in edgeways to serve their lunch."
