Camilla gets stuck in in the kitchen in lunch club visit

The Duchess of Corrnwall has revealed a secret skill as she helped serve up lunch for pensioners at a club in Hertfordshire.

Camilla, 73, has previously talked down her cooking talents, but appeared to be pretty comfortable when it came to desserts.

As she got stuck in in the kitchen alongside volunteers from the Royal Voluntary Service, she proved a dab hand at piping cream on top of the individual trifles.

She was at the club in Rickmansworth at the invitation of her pen pal Doris Winfield, who she has been writing to throughout the pandemic.

The duchess and Winfield met in person for the first time, having struck up a friendship when the royal helped with the ‘check in and chat’ programme started by the RVS.

On Monday, the Reserve Bank of India postponed its three-day, rate-setting meeting without giving a reason. It was probably canceled because the panel didn’t have enough people to convene; the six-person committee requires four officials to proceed. The terms of three members have expired, and requests that the government extend their tenure were met with the formation of a group to select new ones instead. (By law, they can’t be appointed to second terms.) 

No matter how you read this, the signals are discouraging. If it’s purely a scheduling snafu, then the timing is particularly poor. Gross domestic product dived 23.9% in the second quarter from a year earlier, easily the worst performance in Asia. India is crumbling beneath the toll of the coronavirus, with more
