Breaking News

The Duchess of Cornwall has paid an emotional tribute at the graves of two of her father's World War II comrades who were killed at El Alamein, Egypt. Accompanied by the Prince of Wales, she laid flowers at the graves in the Commonwealth War Graves Cemetery.

"I've got a huge lump in my throat," Camilla said afterwards.

Her father, Major Bruce Shand, was wounded and captured in the aftermath of the 1942 battle that claimed 23,500 UK and Commonwealth soldiers' lives.
