Camilla buys Zulu hat in South Africa
The Duchess of Cornwall has purchased a Zulu headdress in the South African township of Soweto.

Camilla bought the traditional hat for around £20 from a local businesswoman named Nthabiseng Dibakoane, who specialises in making hand-made shoes, bags, hats and dresses.

The headdress was made from woven fabrics in a black and brown pattern and worked surprisingly well with the Duchess' cream dress and butterfly print scarf.

Camilla is visiting South Africa with her husband, the Prince of Wales, as part of their eight-day tour of the Commonwealth.

Throughout their time in Johannesburg's south-west township, the royal couple met many local entrepreneurs, as well as charities and vulnerable individuals.

After their meeting the pair were then given a tour of the Freedom Charter Monument by chief curator Kwezi Gule, who explained the significance of Freedom Square.
