Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, stunned onlookers at a Welsh holiday resort by going for an impromptu paddle in the sea.

The royal - who is married to Britain's Prince Charles - rolled up her trousers and took the plunge at Llangranog after taking a break from official engagements to go out walking in the sunshine with a female companion and two detective bodyguards.

The outing was captured on camera by retired teacher and keen watercolour artist Rhoda Murphy, who was with her husband Paul.

She said: "I went down the beach and started taking pictures of the cove. Then who should walk into my frame but Camilla. I couldn't believe it."

After her paddle, the duchess went for a walk up the headland, ending her hour-long visit with another British holiday tradition - sitting on a wall with an ice cream cone.

Camilla has been holidaying with Charles in their new Welsh retreat in Carmarthenshire, which has undergone a two-year renovation.
