  • Duchess Camilla is a "massive fan" of the show and is said to "vote every week" for her favourite contestant
  • She is said to have "leapt at the chance" to film a cameo for the Strictly Come Dancing final
  • It comes after Prince Harry made a surprise appearance on Strictly just a few weeks ago

The Duchess of Cornwall is set to make an appearance on tonight's Strictly Come Dancing final.

Duchess Camilla - wife of Future King, Prince Charles - is said to be a "massive fan" of the show and wants to spread a bit of "much-needed cheer" following a turbulent year for everybody.

According to The Sun, a source said, "Camilla's team rang long before filming began and said she was a massive fan — and wanted to be on the show.

"They said she would be happy to do anything, so when they asked her to film a cameo for the final, she leapt at the chance."

With The Prince of Wales having experienced first-hand the grim effects of covid-19, Duchess Camilla agreed that this year has been "hell". And her Strictly cameo will no doubt raise viewers' spirits.

The insider added, "She thanked Strictly for helping her get through the hell of 2020 and adding a bit of much-needed cheer."

She won't be the first member of the royal family to star on Strictly this year, after Prince Harry made an appearance to surprise former colleague and friend, JJ Chalmers, just a few weeks ago.

With Christmas just a few days away, it's set to be a festive season like never before as Duchess Camilla and Prince Charles will break tradition by spending Christmas Day at Highgrove House in Gloucestershire.

They would usually celebrate with the Queen and Prince Philip at Sandringham, but it was recently announced that the couple would be spending Christmas "quietly" at Windsor Castle, amid the global pandemic.

It is the first time in 33 years the couple will be away from Sandringham for the festive period.
