The Duchess of Cornwall tried a glass of cider as she joined her husband on a trip to the Orchard County yesterday.

Camilla accompanied Charles on a number of visits to local businesses and places of interest in Armagh on the second day of the royal visit to Northern Ireland.

She was given a guided tour of an orchard by Helen Troughton, one of the owners of the family-run Armagh Cider Company in Portadown. The Duchess also viewed the production process before enjoying a tipple.

Earlier in the day, the royal couple spent time at the Yellow Door delicatessen, which opened in Portadown in 1997. They browsed the goods on offer in shop, which rages from cured bacon and butter to apple cider and gin.

They also visited the Ulster Carpets company, where they were shown a carpet made for a room in Buckingham Palace.

The Prince and Duchess are due to travel across the border to the Republic of Ireland later today to visit Donegal.

The royal visit follows Charles and Camilla's successful trip to the Republic last year, when the Prince made the journey to the spot where his great-uncle, Lord Mountbatten, was murdered by the IRA in 1979.

A Clarence House spokesman said: "The visit will recognise the warm friendship that exists between both countries, promoting understanding of their respective heritage and celebrating the best that each has to offer."

Last night, it emerged gardai had quizzed a number of people behind a series of online death threats made against the couple.

Detectives have carried out more than a dozen searches at homes across Donegal ahead of the royal couple's arrival.

While the visit has been widely welcomed, people opposed to it have made a number of "vile" threats on social media.

Gardai will today keep a close eye on a protest by dissidents on the outskirts of Letterkenny, well outside a security zone.
