Yesterday, while hill walking in slippery conditions in Scotland, The Duchess of Cornwall took a tumble and hurt her leg.

Today, following doctor's advice, Her Royal Highness had an X-ray which showed a twisted fracture of the fibula.  Consequently The Duchess is wearing a plaster cast and will be for six weeks. She has been advised not to put any weight on her leg.

Her Royal Highness has every intention of carrying out all planned engagements.
