Prince Charles and Camilla visit Jamie Oliver's restaurant Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall paid a visit to Jamie Oliver's Fifteen restaurant in Cornwall, but unfortunately for the royals, the couple did not stay for lunch. The first-in-line to the throne and his wife Camilla were on the last day of their West Country tour when they made a brief stop at the Watergate Bay branch. Arriving by car, Charles, 65, and Camilla, 66, were greeted by a row of happy chefs standing in the restaurant's kitchen. The young chefs had a lot to smile about as they were part of Jamie Oliver's apprentice programme – the scheme that gives unemployed people the chance to train with chefs at Fifteen.

The Life and Times of Her Majesty, The Queen

Her Majesty The Queen, Queen Elizabeth
The Life and Times of Her Majesty, The Queen Queen Elizabeth II should be regarded as one of the most successful sovereigns of all time, successfully transitioning the monarchy into the modern era despite Republican movements and periods of potent press criticism of the Royal family. As support in Australia for a constitutional monarchy remains high, it is, in no small way, thanks to the Queen's consistent personal popularity. Elizabeth's passage to the throne was unconventional.

She was a lovely person, but she kept herself to herself," she told the magazine. On its website, the West London school claims to provide courses "for interested amateurs of all ages" that will "instil a lasting love of good food and wine". Although a three-week course doesn't come cheap - costing more £2000 - we're sure the Duke of Cambridge and little Pr
