Cornwall says happy birthday Camilla.

The Duchess and Duke are spending the day in Lostwithiel.

They will tour the old Duchy Palace and meet charity workers from Helston's Shelterbox and Cornwall Air Ambulance.

Then the town band will play Happy Birthday - and school children will present her with a card.

Among them will be five year old Harry who said: "We did a big flower in the middle - and two hearts at the side."

He will be accompanied by eleven year old Emily, who told Pirate FM her friends are excited for her: "They think it's quite special and cool and stuff. They're quite excited about it as well."

Headteacher Carolyn Huxley added: "It's really important the children are involved. It's part of their national heritage, their national culture. I'm delighted that we have the opportunity to talk about the future king and his wife. It gives the children that sense of history and the wider responsibilities of being within the community."

When the royal couple visited St Austell on Monday Camilla let slip that they are expecting Wills and Kate's baby by the end of the week.

With the clock ticking it is possible that the baby could wind up sharing her birthday.

The royal couple will meet those involved in restoring the seven hundred year old Duchy Palace after it was saved in 2009. It was originally the building used as the administrative centre by the first Duke of Cornwall.

Later Camilla will meet charity representatives at Lostwithiel drill hall. They include members of the Cornwall Community Foundation, which has given more than £5m to 2,000 organisation, Cornwall Air Ambulance and Helston's Shelterbox.

Before they leave Charles and Camilla will go on a walkabout in parade square - where the town band will play "Happy Birthday" for the Duchess.
