Camilla toasts her new role with vintners

By Tony Jones

The Duchess of Cornwall has celebrated becoming a member of the spiritual home of the wine trade - with a glass of red.

Camilla was "honoured" to be made a liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Vintners at their historic London home, Vintners' Hall, near St Paul's Cathedral. Her father, Major Bruce Shand, was a wine merchant and passed on his love of the grape to his daughter.

Meanwhile, the Prince of Wales was treated to a taste of the most multicultural street in the country when he visited Leicester's Narborough Road.

He was presented with a hamper containing produce from around the world, including Bosnian coffee and Polish pasta. During a walk down the street - which represents at least 23 nationalities - Charles also enjoyed a piece of baklava from the Istanbul restaurant.
