The 69-year-old royal viewed Elephant Family's "beautiful floral elephant" last week as part of the annual prestigious flower show, and the creation, which was sculpted out of a variety of flowers, was part of the organisation's bid to raise awareness about Asian elephant's becoming extinct.

Clarence House have taken to Twitter to share images from Duchess Camilla's visit.

Alongside a photograph of Camilla - who is the organisation's Royal President - standing beside the innovative masterpiece, it read: "The Duchess of Cornwall viewed @elephantfamily's beautiful floral elephant last week as part of the #ChelseainBloom festival. #TBT (sic)."

Whilst another post was captioned: "The festival supports @elephantfamily's work to help save the Asian elephant from extinction. The Duchess is the charity's Royal President. (sic)."

And the charity feel "so blessed" Camilla - who is married to Prince Charles - to have taken time out of her busy schedule to visit the site, observe their display and have thanked her for supporting the charity.

Elephant Family twitted: "We are so blessed to have The Duchess of Cornwall as Elephant Family's Joint Royal President #TheDuchessofCornwall #ChelseainBloom #Tbt (sic)."

Meanwhile, Camilla has often been subjected to harsh criticism over the years, but the Duchess has relied on her sense of humour to maintain her happiness and to laugh off any criticism.

Speaking previously, she said: "You've got to laugh through most things, and sometimes I do laugh a bit too much.

"There are situations where it's very difficult not to lose it completely, especially, you know, if something goes terribly wrong and everybody sits there for a split second [not sure how to react]. You do have to swallow and pinch yourself very hard to not laugh."
