The Duchess of Cornwall has spoken publicly for the first time about her future step-daughter-in-law Kate Middleton.
"Kate's a lovely girl," said Camilla during a visit to a floral design school in London. "We're very lucky. I'm very much looking forward to the wedding."
The Duchess has grown close to the future Princess in recent months as she has helped with plans for the wedding, which is just over a month away.
One of Camilla's granddaughters, Eliza Lopes, is going to be a bridesmaid on the big day.
"She's only three and it will be quite nerve-wracking for a little one. But she will enjoy it," said the royal.
