The Duchess of Cornwall has confessed to Debbie Harry that her singing voice earned her the nickname "the growler" at school.

Camilla joked with the Blondie frontwoman when the pair met in the studio of BBC Radio 2 DJ Chris Evans after his breakfast show had finished.

The Duchess was visiting the studio in central London in support of the radio station's 500 Words children's writing competition, which is being spearheaded by Evans. A few minutes after the breakfast programme ended, Camilla walked in and met Hollywood star Ray Winstone, a guest on the show, and Debbie Harry and the rest of the Blondie band members, who had been performing.

The Duchess told the singer: "I was always known as the growler at school." Harry replied: "That can help in rock." Camilla then told the band she was a "huge admirer" of their work and was "so glad you're all going strong".
