Duchess to visit city projects

THE Duchess of Cornwall of Cornwall has a string of engagements on a visit to Sheffield on Wednesday.

She will also meet student volunteers from Sheffield University’s linguistics society who run an after-school literacy and language project.

Camilla Parker-Bowles will move on to a centre for homeless men and women in Cadman Street in Attercliffe, which is run by Emmaus UK, of which she is a patron. Then she will open a centre for biomedical research at the Northern General Hospital, meeting experts in treating osteoporosis and cardiac conditions.
