Charles kept his feelings about Harry’s bombshell book deal hidden as he cracked a joke and laughed with members of the public on the second day of his three-day tour of the South West with Camilla.

He dressed for the hot weather in a cream suit as his wife, Camilla, looked elegant in a vibrant blue, summer frock with an exotic bird print.

The Duchess of Cornwall teamed her tropical print dress by Bombshell with tan-coloured kitten heels for the outing and completed her sophisticated ensemble with a simple gold jewelry and drop earrings.

Following their visit to the school, the royal couple headed to Porthcressa Quay where they spoke with key workers involved in community support during the pandemic. They also met local business owners who have been affected by lockdown. 

Following their visit to the quayside, the couple made their way to Porthcressa Beach where they strolled along the picturesque sands and spoke with a crowd of well-wishers.

This comes as the Duke of Sussex’s $20million Megxit memoir was today branded a ‘moneymaking exercise at the expense of his blood family’ by royal experts and insiders who predicted it would be ‘a book by Harry, as written by Meghan.’

Harry, 36, did not warn his grandmother, father or brother about the tell-all book until ‘moments before it became public’ in a sign that his relationship with the Royal Family did not improve during his visit to unveil Princess Diana’s statue in London earlier this month, it was claimed today.

The Queen, Prince Charles and Prince William are said to have been completely blindsided by Harry’s shock announcement that he has been secretly working on his as yet untitled memoirs with Pulitzer-winning ghostwriter J. R. Moehringer for a year, with a release date of late 2022, according to publisher Penguin Random House.

In a statement Harry said: ‘I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become’ – but one royal insider responded tartly: ‘A book by Harry, as written by Meghan.’
