The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Charles put safety first as they visited the Headquarters of the Bank of England today.   

Camilla, 73, cut a stylish figure in a pale blue suit and floral face mask, and completed her outfit with a pair of black suede boots and coordinating bag.

Meanwhile, the Prince of Wales, 71, looked dapper in a navy-striped suit, zig zag patterned tie and adhered to government guidelines by donning a paisley-print face mask. 

During the visit, the royal couple will meet with bank Governor Andrew Bailey to highlight the bank's role in supporting the national economy through the Covid-19 pandemic.

Camilla, who wore her blonde hair coiffured away from her face and kept her makeup minimal, accessorised her outfit with a dainty gold pendant necklace and added light blue, and silver dragonfly brooches to the left-hand side of her blazer.

They met those involved in the production of bank notes and spoke to the Bank's regional agents.

The United Kingdom's $3 trillion economy has been battered by restrictions imposed to halt the spread of the virus.

The Duchess of Cornwall's engagement comes a day after she was joined by health secretary Matt Hancock to see the work of Covid-sniffing dogs from her charity, Medical Detection Dogs, in action. 

Camilla was at bustling Paddington Station in London to see two labradors trained to pick out positive samples using their remarkable sense of smell being tested in a ‘real life’ environment.    

Bob and Basil passed the scientifically-monitored tests - which used five human volunteers, one wearing an item of clothing which has the odour of Covid-19 on it - with flying colours on six separate occasions, much to the delight of the Duchess and Mr Hancock. 

Camilla, who has backed the charity’s work since 2014, described the dogs as ‘simply remarkable, so impressive’.
