"But he’s not in it, that’s a bit sad," Camilla joked after being shown the shirt by Lizzie Dunford, director of Jane Austen’s House, who replied: "I know, that’s sad, and it’s not quite as damp as it was."

The Duchess was delighted with the Austen home tour

The duchess quipped: "You could give it a good spray."

Speaking about Mr Darcy’s shirt, Ms Dunford told Camilla: "It’s a wonderful artefact, one of the reasons we wanted to show it was that 1995 production was so transformative for people loving Pride And Prejudice.
