Duchess Camilla Gets a Big Cabbage for Her Birthday
To mark her 61st birthday, Camilla received an organic carrot cake, but the more interesting garden vegetable involved at her birthday: a giant, flowery Durham Early green cabbage.
As fervent green thumbs, the Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Charles of Wales spent the day touring the Dig For Victory allotment, a project between the Royal Parks and Cabinet War Rooms promoting gardens on public land, first inspired by Lord Woolton, the Minister of Food during World War II.
Probably not accustomed to receiving birthday cabbages, Camilla responded to the gift: "Oh my goodness me, look at that. It's a big one."
