Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall embarked on her first solo engagement abroad on Monday.
In her usual understated fashion, The Duchess took the Eurostar to Paris where she would spend two days learning more about the charity Emmaus, which was founded shortly after WW2 when homelessness and poverty was a big problem.
"I'm dreading making my speech in French," admitted Camilla before she represented the UK at the charity's headquarters. "I haven't spoken it since I was 16."
After her speech had gone smoothly, Prince Charles's wife, met with Help for Heroes fundraisers, sampled some local fare at Marche Raspil and toured Dior's glamorous headquarters.
Before heading back to London, Camilla enjoyed a visit to The Louvre, posing in front of Leonardo Da Vinci's Mona Lisa.
