The Duchess of Cornwall shared a rare sweet photo of herself with her daughter, Laura Lopes, as she took part in a phone call in her role as patron of the Silver Line on Friday. Clarence House released an image of Camilla, 72, as she spoke to Silver Line user, 90-year-old Betty, and the organisation's founder, Dame Esther Rantzen. The Duchess sits in her cosy living room at her Scottish home, Birkhall, and the personal photograph from Laura's 2006 wedding can be seen on a table in the background behind her.

Mother-of-the-bride Camilla wore a dove grey pleated dress for the occasion with a cream floral hat, while Laura wore a v-neck style wedding dress with fluted sleeves, designed by Anna Valentine, who also created Camilla's ensemble for her nuptials to Prince Charles in 2005.

Art curator Laura married chartered accountant, Harry Lopes, at St Cyriac's Church in Wiltshire on 6 May 2006.
