Camilla’s throne for sale on eBay

London, Apr 18 (ANI): A pub landlady is all set to make a ‘Royal’ deal by auctioning Camilla’s throne - a toilet seat used by the Duchess of Cornwall - on eBay.

Landlady Chris Azerkane, who runs the pub with husband Rafai, hopes that the loo lid would get a good bidding from Royal fanatics.

Chris, 52, revealed that Camilla used the seat after she unexpectedly turned at her door and asked to use the toilet in her bar - Hare and Hounds in Framfield, East Sussex.

“I was in my white rags - I must have looked a real state. The first I knew about it was when a load of posh cars started turning up in our car park - big Audis and Land Rovers,” the Daily Star quoted Chris as saying.

“As soon as I saw her hair, I knew it was Camilla - so I rushed to the front door and unlatched it.

“I said: ‘Why didn’t you tell me you were coming?’ - thinking that was what you are supposed to do.

“She said: ‘Hello, we’ve just come down from Gloucester. Do you think I could use your loo?’” she added.

Chris, the mum-of-three, said that her “legs turned to jelly” before she ushered her VIP guest into the bar and showed her the way to the ladies.

Chris added: “I told her June, our cleaner, had been in and done a good job. I then asked what she was doing here and she explained she was attending a funeral at the village church for her friend, Lady Mary Askew.”

After using the loo, the Duchess returned to the bar and asked if Chris had any sloe gin.

“Unfortunately I didn’t - so she had a Stone’s ginger wine instead. She wasn’t with Charles but she looked beautiful in a really smart coat,” said Chris.

And now, Chris is auctioning the toilet seat to raise money for the Royal Brompton and Kings College Hospitals, in London, where her 16-month-old grandson Omar is being treated. (ANI)
