camillaThe Duchess of Cornwall was left a little battered by the elements this week when she visited troops preparing to deploy to Afghanistan.

Camilla met soldiers from 4th Battalion, The Rifles and as their Royal Colonel, was given the honour of travelling in a Husky armoured vehicle as she watched them training on Salisbury Plain.

Her Royal Highness became Royal Colonel of 4 RIFLES when the battalion, formerly 2nd Battalion The Royal Green Jackets, was formed on 1 February 2007.

The battalion is likely to deploy in the next few months.
