The organization trains dogs

to recognize


in people, the Duchess wanted to learn more about it and paid the organization a visit.

At this public event, Camilla decided to wear a clear visor in front of her face instead of a mask to protect herself and others from the Corona virus.

This is because


with a clear visor is much easier as you can see other people talking and smiling.

But does such a visor also protect?

Critics warn that

mouth and nose protection is

much more effective than a clear visor.

Because this would be "useless" when it comes to preventing droplet spreading, say experts.

The wife of the British heir to the throne Prince Charles (71) received a lot of


for her choice of Covid-19 protection

, but the Duchess did not break one rule.

Camilla: Should the Duchess of Cornwall have worn a mask?

The 73-year-old was criticized for choosing the transparent visor, but Camilla cannot be accused of violating the rules.

The event was outside in the fresh air, so in theory she would not have had to wear a visor or a mask.

The Duchess is also not afraid to show herself with mouth and nose protection.

She recently wowed fans with a pretty peacock mask when she visited the 'National Gallery' in London.

Her husband, Prince Charles, has already had Covid 19.

The two had to go into isolation after the shocking news. Fortunately, Charles has completely recovered and is probably even immune to the virus.

Of course, that doesn't mean that royals like Prince Charles or Duchess Camilla can do without protective measures.

The Duchess of Cornwall did not choose mouth and nose protection this time, but as soon as the 73-year-old attends public events in closed rooms, Camilla is sure to be seen with a mask again.
