Camilla, Duchess Of Cornwall last week paid a visit to the BBC Studio where Strictly Come Dancing is filmed. The Duchess had been invited by Judge Craig Revel Horwood to watch the final rehearsals for last Saturday’s show.


A show source said: “The visit was top secret but Craig thought it would give the remaining contestants and the crew a real boost if Camilla came down to watch them in action.

“The Duchess is a big fan of the series and watches the show with Prince Charles so she was very knowledgeable when she was watching the run through.

“None of the contestants could believe it when she walked in, but it certainly made them concentrate even more in the rehearsals and a few of the dancers seemed a bit starstruck.”


Speaking after the visit, Craig Revel Horwood, said; “I’m delighted to have welcomed The Duchess to Strictly Come Dancing. Having got to know her through our charity work and having learnt what a fan of the series she is, it has been a pleasure to show her a sneak preview of this Saturday’s show and some of the work which goes into making the series.”


Craig and Camilla have become unlikely friends in recent years through their involvement in the National Osteoporosis Society
