The Duchess of Cornwall struggled with elements today as she toured Liverpool's award-winning Beatles Story attraction.

During the visit, Camilla suffered a hair-raising moment as her blonde locks flew up above her head.

But the Duchess remained in high spirits, recalling Beatlemania as she unveiled a plaque to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the creation of the Fab Four.

Hair-raising: The Duchess of Cornwall lets loose at the Beatles Story attraction in Liverpool

Camilla reminisced about the 'screaming fans' as she watched a short performance by a Beatles tribute band during a trip down memory lane in Liverpool.

The Duchess was greeted at the attraction by a crowd waving Union Jack flags and by a member of staff dressed in a Sgt Pepper costume.

In the Cavern area of the attraction the Duchess watched a short performance by tribute band The Mersey Beatles before moving on to the discovery zone, where she met pupils from Liverpool's St Vincent De Paul primary school.
