A visit to the Chailey Heritage Foundation proved a poignant occasion for the Duchess of Cornwall on Wednesday.
It was here that her late mother worked with disabled youngsters as a volunteer for 17 years.
Camilla, who grew up in nearby Plumpton, attended a service to mark the centenary of St Martin’s Chapel.
Radiant in an ivory two-piece and a single string of pearls, she then toured the new ‘Life Skills Centre’ in Grace Kimmins House which she officially opened.
The facility helps young people with complex physical disabilities and health needs to prepare for adulthood.
