"The Queen Consort is to have two personal items valued by Antiques Roadshow experts when she guest stars in a special episode of the BBC show.
Filmed in Cornwall at the Eden Project last September, the programme - which will air on Sunday at 8pm on BBC One - will see Camilla meet the team and join host Fiona Bruce in a Guess The Mystery Object game.
For the occasion, Camilla brought along a rare snuffbox from the Royal Collection made from Cornish silver and a copy of Elegy In A Country Churchyard by poet Thomas Gray to be examined."
".....Later in the episode, the Queen Consort and Bruce attempt to guess the true purpose of three unusual items offered up by jewellery specialist Geoffrey Munn.
Among the items is a piece of rock crystal, a silver plaque decorated with a pair of eyes and two jewelled arrows.
Bruce, who has presented Antiques Roadshow since 2008, said: 'The Queen Consort was just terrific fun. She put everyone at ease and was keen to take part in the programme and chat to everyone.
'The members of the public that came along with their items that day got a bit more than they bargained for as they had no idea The Queen Consort was coming!
'Her Majesty got stuck into our Antiques Roadshow games, though Guess The Mystery Object had us both stumped.'"
