The Duchess of Cornwall meets female veterans at Bletchley Park

20 FEBRUARY 2013

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall enjoyed a spot of afternoon tea with female veterans from the Second World War on Wednesday.

The Duchess met the women, who were code breakers during the conflict, as she paid a visit to Bletchley Park – the building from which British Allies intercepted Germany's infamous Enigma code.

Camilla gave the ladies her undivided attention as they told amazing stories of their role in helping end World War II. And their tales of espionage and Enigma all took place over some afternoon tea and biscuits.

With many British men deployed, it was women who made up the majority of Bletchley Park's administrative personnel during the conflict.

Around 60 veterans sat down with the royal after she had toured the Buckinghamshire estate, which is now a heritage attraction.

Iain Standen, Bletchley Park's CEO, said the Duchess of Cornwall's visit had been "great".
