CAMILLA, the Duchess of Cornwall, spoke to Hempen, which sells hemp and CBD oil, during an outing with Prince Charles to the Swiss Cottage farmers market on Wednesday.
Prince Charles and Camilla visited the market in the London Borough of Camden to celebrate the 20th anniversary of London Farmers’ Markets. During the outing, Camilla spoke to Hempen, a co-operative which sells hemp and CBD oil. Footage shows Camilla in conversation with the market seller, who says: “We’re also forming a family members for British Hemp Association, BHA.
“Which is a group of hemp farmers that are starting to get together.”
The Daily Mail’s Rebecca English tweeted about the exchange, saying Camilla spoke on the “fantastic” stories about the health benefits of hemp and CBD oil.
The post was captioned: “Camilla stopped by Hempen which sells hemp and CBD oil today and chatted knowledgeably about the treatment.
“Saying she has heard ‘fantastic’ stories about its benefits from people suffering from life-changing ailments such as epilepsy.”
Camilla dazzled in a pink coat and a coordinated scarf, accessorised with black gloves and shoes.
The Prince of Wales wore a dark suit with a white buttoned shirt and a white and blue tie, along with a poppy on his lapel ahead of Sunday’s Remembrance Day.
Camilla and Charles were all smiles as they toured the stalls, trying cheese, cakes and Exmoor caviar.
Camilla asked about the products on sale, admired the flowers on one stalls and complimented the sellers on their job.
However Camilla has been told by her doctor to cancel her engagements scheduled for Thursday, due to a “chest infection”.
A Clarence House spokeswoman told Express.co.uk: “The Duchess of Cornwall has been told by her doctor to cancel her engagements owing to a chest infection which has got progressively worse over the last few days.”
It is understood that the Duchess of Cornwall is deeply disappointed she won’t be able to attend the Field of Remembrance service today.
Camilla was also forced to pull out from another engagement yesterday night.
As Vice-Patron, Camilla was scheduled to attend a gala dinner at the London Library to celebrate the 200th birthday of Prince Albert.
But, due to her health condition, the Duchess was advised to remain home and rest.
Today’s engagement at Westminster Abbey is particularly close to Camilla’s heart, as she is the Patron of the Poppy Factory, where Remembrance Poppies are made.
Camilla is expected to join other senior royals on Saturday night, who will head to the Royal Albert Hall for the annual Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance.
