The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall have delighted visitors at the Sandringham Flower Show.

Charles and Camilla are currently going round marquees and displays set up for the event at the Royal Estate and have stopped to talk with various attendees on the way.

One person who enjoyed their company was Jill Fysh, chairman of the King's Lynn and District branch of the National Osteoporosis Society, who spoke with Camilla about their work.

The Duchess of Cornwall was made president of the National Osteoporosis Society in 2001.

Mrs Fysh said: 'The flower show is good for everyone, bringing local people and people from outside into west Norfolk.

'It's a very good charity money making opportunity, we get a great deal of money from Sandringham, but the other thing it's good for is raising awareness.'

Mrs Fysh talked to Camilla about the research the society does and the local campaign to renew its contract for a DEXA scanner.

She added: 'She's very supportive, she does lots of work around the country for the charity and she was very knowledgeable about the condition.'

Also lucky enough to talk with the royal couple was Samantha Moore, 33, from King's Lynn and her two children, Carson, eight and Jensen, three.

Samantha brought her family to meet the Prince and Duchess for the second year in succession and the young boys gave them flowers, with Camilla calling Jensen a 'chatterbox'.

Mrs Moore said: 'We come every year, it's a nice way to start off the summer holidays and the boys like to meet the Duchess and the Prince.

'They've always got such a lot of time for them, they've always made a fuss of them. He [Prince Charles] said we were familiar faces.

'It was a lovely interaction, they're really child friendly, they make a beeline for children and really make an effort.'
