Duchess Camilla

Duchess Camilla

Britain's Duchess of Cornwall is having trouble removing a henna tattoo she was given in Tanzania.

I just can't get it off. I have tried scrubbing and everything - nailbrushes, you name it. I just don't know what to do.

Camilla had a design inked with the plant extract during an official state visit to the African country last week, and was assured it would rub off after a couple of days, but she is still sporting marks on her left hand.

She told the Daily Mail newspaper: "The less said about that the better! I didn't feel that I could refuse and it was rather beautiful but then, after I had it done, this lady put her hand on mine and splodged it everywhere.

"I just can't get it off. I have tried scrubbing and everything - nailbrushes, you name it. I just don't know what to do."

Camilla had the inking done at the Old Fort in Stone Town while on the island of Zanzibar with her husband Prince Charles.

It was not the only unusual item on the itinerary for the couple - Charles was also spotted dancing while locals played an instrument known as a zumari.

Camilla also got involved, and was spotted swaying her hips during the performance.
