The Duchess of Cornwall has knighted a “farmer” at the South of England Show – with a leek.

Camilla, who is the president of the South of England Agricultural Society, is in Ardingly in East Sussex for the show’s 50th anniversary.

During her tour, an actor playing a grumpy farmer got down on one knee and begged her to “knight me please”.

He told the shocked but amused duchess: “I’m wearing thigh high rubber just for you Madam.”

Camilla tapped him gently on one shoulder but he complained: “Is that it, just the one shoulder?”

He added: “Oh you aren’t the Queen, you can’t do two?”

Camilla declined the request but told him his rubber was “very smart” before placing the leek back in its box.
