Scott Hall, of Cornish Chillies said: "Charles was wondering how hot our sauces were, and we said they are anything from mild to super hot.

"Camilla said she wanted to get some for her son (food critic) Tom Parker Bowles."

Camilla was also spotted visiting the dog show tent, where she closely admired terriers who were competing to be named top dog, before going to view the flower tent.

The Prince attended to a matter close to his heart as he met with the managing team of the Duchy of Cornwall, including young farmers.

Charles chatted to the aspiring farmers about their sustainability goals as the duchy has a "sustainable stewardship" initiative to help future farmers survive and reach environmental target.

Will Kitto, of Higher Coombe Farm Prince said the Prince had discussed their sustainability plans and the current cost-of-living crisis.

The 57-year-old visited the cattle tent and sheep tent, spoke to various traders in the exhibition centre, and also posed for selfies with members of the public.

Tweeting about the event, he penned: "I had a fantastic day out at the @RoyalCornwall show, meeting our incredible farmers and rural communities that produce the best food and drink in the world."
