As the Duchess of Cornwall is becoming a more and more accepted presence in the nation's public life, there is a side of her that is becoming increasingly apparent: she's an animal lover.
The Duchess has become known for her warmhearted nature as well as having a sharp sense of humour.

Now, her cuddling up to a baby kangaroo on her Royal tour of Australia with Prince Charles, seems to be the latest example of her passion for all things wild and beautiful.
Forever pictured with a smile on her face, there is a joyful air to the Duchess as she continues to win over the notoriously difficult British public.
Camilla is a tireless contributor to major charities around the country, and is a patron of the Animal Care Trust.
