Camilla's vow to keep helping abuse victims

By Nina Massey

The Duchess of Cornwall has insisted she will continue helping victims of domestic violence during a visit to Refuge.

Camilla met a number of survivors at a centre in the London area and heard how the charity has supported them throughout its 45-year history.

She also spoke to its patron, Sir Patrick Stewart, who thanked her for the work she was doing.

The Duchess said: "It is the least I could do to come. I like to do everything I can to help."

The actor described seeing his mother abused after his father returned from the Second World War with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Earlier the duchess had paid a visit to the Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine in central London where she met with podiatrists and patients.
