The couple emerged about an hour later, with Charles wearing a happy face before shaking hands and exchanging a few words with members of the public who had gathered by the dozens. Camilla, for her part, received a bouquet of flowers from the hands of a boy as she left the church. The couple left as soon as they arrived in a Royal Bentley with large glass surfaces so they could be easily seen.

Many liabilities were cancelled

The public outing comes a week after Prince William's wife, Princess Kate, the heir to the throne, announced she too had cancer. Unlike other members of the royal family, the couple and their children were not there, taking a break from the media spotlight.
