Camilla, wife of Prince Charles, breaks her leg
LONDON (AP) – Camilla, the wife of Prince Charles, has broken her left leg while hiking in Scotland, royal officials said Thursday.
The 62-year-old royal was walking in the hills Wednesday when she slipped and fractured the leg, Clarence House said in a statement. The break was confirmed by an X-ray Thursday.
Clarence House said that while Camilla would be wearing a plaster cast for the next six weeks, she still intended to carry out her official engagements.
Clarence House declined to say at which hospital the Duchess of Cornwall was being treated or where exactly she fell.
Camilla has been staying at Birkhall, Prince Charles’ private home on the queen’s Balmoral estate in Scotland.
He and Camilla typically spend their summers there, fishing and walking in the Scottish countryside, according to Charles’ Web site.
