Duchess of Cornwall
Britain's Duchess of Cornwall has flown to India for a week-long pampering session.
Camilla arrived at the Soukya International Holistic Health Centre in Bangalore, southern India, with a party of 10 on Saturday (27.10.12) and she is understood to be staying at the facility's Â£3,500 a night presidential suite where she will take in some relaxation time ahead of her and Prince Charles' tour of Australia and New Zealand next month.
Camilla can enjoy 'spiritually healing' massages and customised yoga sessions at dawn at the three-bedroom presidential suite, where she and Charles enjoyed a four-night stay when they visited the country in 2010 for the Commonwealth Games.
During the duchess' last visit to the health centre she enjoyed yoga sessions and had an abhayanka massage, which features medicated oil, and shirodhara, where warm oil is poured on the forehead.
An insider told the Daily Mail newspaper: 'She could do the difficult asanas [poses] with ease. It seems she has done yoga before.'
Camilla is expected to meet Charles in Singapore ahead of their Southern Hemisphere tour next weekend.
A Clarence House spokesman said: 'The Duchess of Cornwall is on a private holiday. She will fly on to meet up with the Prince of Wales for the start of their Diamond Jubilee tour to Papua New Guinea, Australia and New Zealand next weekend.'
