The Duchess of Cornwall has a particularly unique way of celebrating Christmas with the children’s charities of which Camilla is a long-running patron. Camilla is involved with Helen & Douglas House and the Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity and has previously invited seriously and terminally ill children to Clarence House for a Christmas lunch and festivities. Royal commentators have identified another of the Duchess’s Christmas traditions that stand out as unique among the Royal Family.

Royal commentator Jess Ilse told Royal Central: “I am looking forward to Camilla decorating the tree at Clarence House.

“And she always gets children supported by the Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity.

“And I think last year I had to be virtual.

“So she did a Zoom call with them and they told her where they wanted her to place their ornaments, I always look forward to seeing the pictures from that.”

“She has such a grandmotherly aura about her, so it’s always so nice to see,” she added.

“No other British royal does it so it is really something just for Camilla that she does.”

Alongside working to support children’s charities, Camilla also finds herself involved in annual Christmas light ‘switch ons’ around the country at this time of year.

On Thursday, the Duchess was called upon to switch on the Christmas tree lights at the Royal Trinity Hospice in Clapham, south London.

Camilla met nurses, doctors, patients and their families as she toured the hospice which is celebrating its 130th anniversary.

The switching on of the lights marked the launch of the centre’s Christmas appeal.

Organisers hope to raise millions in donations to cover the income lost as a result of the Covid pandemic.

The duchess was full of praise for the hospice’s staff.

The duchess also heard children from nearby St Mary’s RC Primary School perform carols.
