Duchess of Cornwall Gets The Giggles As She Receives Unexpected Gift During Royal Tour of Canada

The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince
Charles were in Canada this week – and you won’t believe the memento
Camilla received during one of her latest appearances.

On Thursday, on the final day
of their royal tour, Camilla was given a fluffy, handmade stress ball
fashioned from beaver fur, whilst visiting Yellowknife – and her reaction was
so sweet!

Upon receipt of the gift Camilla
laughed and said: “Everybody needs a stress ball”. Jane Dragon, 81,
who made the gift for the Duchess, said: “It’s from sheared beaver.”

She was very excited to meet
the royal pair after having met the Queen when she visited the country. Jane
added: “We are very lucky to see them. I met the Queen when she came and
now they are here.”

Charles and Camilla were met
with rain on their final day, but that didn’t dampen their spirits as they
enjoyed an exciting visit to the Indigenous Dettah community. The couple were
welcomed by the two Chiefs for the Yellowknives Dene First Nation – Chief
Edward Sangris of the Dettah and Chief Fred Sangris of Ndilo.

Throughout the day, Charles
and Camilla took part in a Feeding the Fire Ceremony, led by Elder Bernadette
Martin. During the impressive ceremony, smoke came up from a central fire pit
while they put offerings of tobacco in and traditional drummers played before a
group prayer to the spirits took place.

Charles and Camilla were
kindly gifted a pair of traditional moccasins each after looking at a selection
of drums. The Prince of Wales appeared to be particularly impressed with the
instruments and said: “They are amazing.”

scrape hides before they were tanned.
