The Duchess of Cornwall admires author Kathy Lettes outfit at Clarence House.

The Duchess of Cornwall was charmed by a corgi-emblazoned suit during a celebration yesterday to mark the 25th anniversary of the National Osteoporosis Society.

Author Kathy Lette donned the unusual jacket and mini skirt especially for the event in the gardens of Clarence House.

The royal-themed outfit, which featured pictures of the Queen’s favourite dogs wearing diamante encrusted crowns and sitting next to piles of money, left Camilla chuckling as she greeted Lette.

Lette, who teamed the creation with a pair of shocking pink stilettos and a set of pearls, said afterwards: “My girlfriend made it for me. If you’re coming to the palace you’ve got to make a sartorial effort or maybe I’ll end up in the Tower?”

She added: “Camilla loved it. I asked her if she wanted my friend to run her up a similar ensemble. She’s got a really great sense of humour.”

A host of celebrities including Dame Shirley Bassey, Felicity Kendall, Twiggy, Jeremy Paxman, Craig Revel-Horwood, Richard E Grant, Jerry Hall and Cilla Black joined the Duchess for the anniversary reception.

Twiggy, who put her arm around Camilla’s shoulder for a photo, said later: “It’s a very important charity. It can affect everybody.”

She added: “I talked to (the Duchess) about the garden. I keep sinking in my heels.”

Camilla’s mother and grandmother both died from osteoporosis, also known as brittle bone disease. She is now president of the society.

Black, whose mother also suffered from the condition, said: “Because my mother died I’m prone so I do have checks and I keep an eye on it and exercise helps. The latest tests said I had the bones of a 35-year-old and I’m not giving them back.”

The Duchess and the Dame: Shirley sparkles at Camilla's do

SHE will be 75 years old next year but Shirley Bassey showed no signs of taking it easy yesterday during a celebration to mark the 25th anniversary of the National Osteoporosis Society.

The Cardiff-born Dame wore a leopard-skin top as she joined the Duchess of Cornwall at Clarence House.

A host of celebrities including Felicity Kendall, Twiggy, Jeremy Paxman, Craig Revel- Horwood, Richard E Grant, Jerry Hall and Cilla Black joined the Duchess for the anniversary reception.

Black, whose mother also suffered from the condition, said: “Because my mother died I’m prone so I do have checks and I keep an eye on it and exercise helps.

“The latest tests said I had the bones of a 35-year-old and I’m not giving them back.”

She added: “It’s such a very debilitating disease. My mother’s heart was strong and her eyes bright but she had to be fed intravenously.”

The Duchess spoke of her own desire to find out more about osteoporosis when her mother Rosalind fell ill.“My family and I like many others were totally ignorant of the facts that lay behind the agony that my mother bore so bravely.“Why did her bones break so easily and why did she shrink so fast?“I needed to know the answers and this quest led me to a small but perfectly formed charity called the National Osteoporosis Society.”She said she hoped the organisation’s tireless work would help find a cure for the disease over the next 25 years.

Camilla also presented the Duchess of Cornwall Award for outstanding contribution to the field of osteoporosis to actress and osteoporosis campaigner Susan Hampshire, telling her: “You’re a real star.”

Author Kathy Lette donned a corgi-emblazoned suit, which featured pictures of the Queen’s favourite dogs wearing diamante-encrusted crowns and sitting next to piles of money.
