Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall attend the Great Yorkshire Show in Harrogate

It may have been an early start for the Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, but the couple looked fresh as a daisy as they arrived at the Great Yorkshire Show this morning.

Camilla, 73, braved heels for the annual event, organised by the Yorkshire Agricultural Society, while Charles, 72, who is patron of the event, donned a smart cream suit. 

Last night the couple attended ‘A Starry Night In The Nilgiri Hills’, a lavish 280-guest event hosted by the Elephant Family at Lancaster House to raise funds for the conservation charity founded by Camilla’s late brother Mark Shand.  

This morning they travelled to the Great Yorkshire Showground in Harrogate, where they met with staff, stewards and exhibitors and toured the stands and livestock areas at England’s biggest agricultural show. 

The Duchess looked smart in a chic navy fitted blazer and a blue and white polka dot dress, teamed with a set of pearls. She completed the outfit with tan court shoes and a matching clutch bag with wooden handles. 

At one point the Prince of Wales was told it was good luck after he trod in a cow pat while inspecting a show of South Devon cattle. Judge Anne Tully, from Brixham, Devon said: ‘I told him that was luck, that’s what we always say.’

The prince then came face to face with champion 1,550kg Hereford bull Moralee One Rebel Kicks, owned by Tom and Di Harrison from Stocksfield, Northumberland. Mr Harrison said afterwards: ‘I could have talked to him for an hour. He is very knowledgeable and I would have liked to have bought him a pint.’

After last summer’s happened virtually due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this year the show – a key event in the farming calendar – is back to its live format and taking place over four days rather than the traditional three.

One of its star attractions is the world’s biggest combine harvester, unveiled earlier this week before the show kicked off on Tuesday.

Capacity has been limited to a maximum of 26,000 people per day to minimise any potential crowding and ensure social distancing can be maintained. 

It’s expected to welcome 104,000 people throughout its run – significantly less than its usual 135,000, with no tickets available on the gates.

Charles was given a warm welcome by a horse-trader during his walkabout at the show. Father-of-six Red Lee Smith spotted the prince and gave him a booming hello as he walked by.

The gypsy from Dublin is currently staying in Doncaster and told Charles he was visiting the show with his family. After asking: ‘Can I get a photo with Mr Charles?’ Mr Smith told the prince: ‘You’re looking well,’ to which Charles replied: ‘Not too bad yourself.’

As they parted Mr Smith wished him ‘God bless’. Afterwards, Mr Smith said: ‘He’s all right. I’ve met him before. I’ve met Harry a few times too.’
