The Duchess of Cornwall always looks her best for royal engagements alongside her husband, Prince Charles, 71. But the 72-year-old has plenty of beauty secrets that she uses to keep her skin looking radiant for the cameras. Camilla has long been known to go to A-list facialist Deborah Mitchell for her treatments.

However, with the lockdown in place and beauty salons and spas closed up and down the country, even the royals may be missing out on their usual treatments and skincare appointments.
Camilla reportedly visits Deborah Mitchell for her facials as well as going to Marina Sandoval in London for her manicures.
Even Prince Charles is reported to have visited the expert ahead of his 70th birthday, with a source previously telling the Daily Star: “Rumors are rife that he turned to Deborah because everyone noticed the difference in his complexion straight away. Charles has been prone to redness on the face and spider veins. He didn’t want them in that now famous picture with Camilla, his children, and grandchildren. He is very much a modern man, as well as being the future king.”
But with the lockdown relaxing for non-essential retailers that can maintain social distancing, it’s not yet known when customers – royal or otherwise – can get back into the salon chair.
However, luckily for Camilla, her go-to facialist also has her own product range – a brand that the Duchess is already known for using in her skincare routine.
Most famously, Camilla is said to have recommended Deborah’s bee venom products and facials to Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge.
The clever anti-ageing products uses bee venom, Manuka honey and a naturally-occurring form of botulinum (the neurotoxin used in Botox) to trick the skin into thinking it’s been stung.
This triggers the production of collagen and elastin for the skin to “repair” itself – leaving skin glowing.

The celebrity facialist has previously revealed that she tested the samples of the product out on Camilla before anyone even knew it existed, saying she loved the results.
Now that the country is in lockdown, the expert has launched a new product designed to harness the power of technology to boost the power of her anti-ageing creams – another treatment she’s debuted on her VIP clients.
Talking exclusively to Express.co.uk, Deborah commented: “When I visit my favourite clients, naturally I want them to try my products as soon as I can. Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cornwall is one of my favourite clients, and not because of the royal connection but because Her Highness and Prince Charles are wonderful people, I love treating them.”

Deborah has created a new product range called Prism, which aims to use the potentially damaging blue light to create an anti-ageing effect.
“After inventing my new product, Prism Age Defiance, I wanted my clients to try it first by having a treatment. The Prism facial is a combination of facial massage movements, with the new product and light. When the spectrum of light touches the cream it’s incredible – an instant improvement,” Deborah explained.
The range is said to use blue light – usually said to be damaging to skin – to activate peptides in the skin in order to protect it.
Though she would usually be applying it in the treatment room, the products can now be used with an app that enhances the results.
“After treating my VIP clients I realised they were using their mobile phones all the time so I developed my Prism app to enhance the anti-ageing effects when my facial was not used. You do not need to use the app for Prism to work, but it does work faster.”
It means that while treatment rooms remain closed, the royals might be doing their own facial treatments using the cream and their smartphone.
Deborah is also known for working with Kylie and Dannii Minogue, Gwyneth Paltrow and Victoria Beckham in her A-list salon.
