A royal expert has slammed an Italian magazine for publishing intrusive photos of Camilla relaxing on holiday wearing a swimsuit.
The Duchess of Cornwall was on board a luxury yacht in Sardinia when the snaps were taken.
The photos were later published in Italian gossip magazine Chi, a decision that has outraged many royal fans and expert Richard Fitzwilliams.
He told the Express: “The paparazzi, since their culpability in Diana’s tragic death, have far fewer outlets. But they remain a clear and present danger.”
“Chi, a disgustingly lurid magazine, which published a highly intrusive photograph of Diana receiving oxygen in the back of the Mercedes after the terrible crash, is part of the publishing empire of former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi.”
The photos were reportedly taken earlier this month before Camilla and Charles headed to Balmoral to spend time with the Queen.
During their trip to Scotland, Camilla joined her mother-in-law at the Highland Games, an event the Monarch loves and attends every year.
The couple later carried out a number of engagements around the country, including whiskey tasting and a game of bowls.
Charles and Camilla, known as the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay when north of the border, travelled to Garlieston in Wigtownshire, Dumfries and Galloway, on Wednesday afternoon.
The royal couple met bowlers on the local club’s green, with the prince not needing asked twice on taking part in a game himself.
Club president and greenkeeper Allan MacDonald said Charles asked him: “How do you do it?”
He said: “(He) wondered how big a biased ball was. He did OK. Surprised to see him but he was definitely better than Camilla. We’ll be sending her the bill.
“I think it’s the first time a royal has ever been in Garlieston.
“In 1953 the Queen came to Whithorn but she never came in the village – she turned up at the crosses.”
Before their game of bowls the couple stopped at The Harbour Inn to meet staff and customers of the village pub.
Charles was treated to a pint of Guinness, which he sipped away on while speaking to the kitchen staff, asking what was for supper – although the head chef had not decided on the menu yet.
