Duchess of Cornwall hails inspirational Woman's Hour

The Duchess of Cornwall has praised BBC Radio 4's Woman's Hour as part of the "soundtrack" to her life and a "living social history" at an event marking the programme's 70 years on air.

Camilla attended a reception for the radio show at Buckingham Palace yesterday.

In an address to the reception, the Duchess garnered laughs when noting that the programme's first presenter was, in fact, a man.

"Like so many, I grew up with Woman's Hour - it was part of the soundtrack to my life," she added.

"It is a living social history charting the changing attitudes to women as well as the changing attitudes of women themselves."

"It's not surprising that the number of listeners is higher than ever and made up of women and men."
