Duchess of Cornwall gets kissed by eager pensioner
Britain’s Duchess of Cornwall received a “cheeky” kiss from a pensioner.
The 67-year-old royal was visiting the Jubilee Centre in St Albans, Hertfordshire on Wednesday (10.12.14) when she was over-enthusiastically greeted 89-year-old Eddie Mansfield.
The OAP decided to give Her Royal Highness a kiss on the hand before chatting to her about the benefits of the community centre.
Later on, a bashful Eddie admitted to the Daily Express newspaper how his actions may have been a tad presumptuous.
He said: “It might have been a bit cheeky.”
The incident comes just days after basketball player LeBron James was criticised for being too familiar with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge when he placed his arm around Her Royal Highness’ shoulder before presenting the couple with a jersey for their 16-month-old son, Prince George in New York on Monday (08.12.14).
Despite the kiss, Camilla appeared at ease as she toured the Jubilee Centre.
As an honorary member of the National Association of Care Catering also met with the staff behind Meals on Wheels, who provide hot dinners for the elderly and disabled.
