A lot of those videos are terrifying. I am sure they trigger a response in some of the young people. I can never understand how they can get away with making those things.

Britain's Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, has slammed Beyonce Knowles for her explicit videos.

Camilla - who is married to Prince Charles - spoke out against the pop singer's latest music promo for single, 'Video Phone', in which she provocatively dances in a series of skimpy outfits and holds a toy gun to the head of a bare-chested man who is hooded.

The royal - who was taking part in a discussion with victims of sexual violence during a visit to a rape crisis centre in London - told the audience of women: "A lot of those videos are terrifying. I am sure they trigger a response in some of the young people. I can never understand how they can get away with making those things."

The duchess says videos like that make young children become immune to images of sex and violence.

She added: "It has happened too quickly, values have changed so much. I suppose it's peer pressure, that's the problem. You don't want to look the odd one out."

The Rape and Sexual Abuse Support Centre Camilla was speaking at offers a range of services including counselling and advocacy for women and girls who have been raped or experienced another form of sexual violence including abuse, incest, forced marriage and so-called honour based crime.
