The Prince of Wales, 70, and Camilla, 72 – known in Scotland as the Duke of Rothesay – visited the Scottish port, which played an important role in preparations for D-Day in 1944, when testing the Mulberry ports.

The son of the queen paid tribute to his hosts in a smart red and green kilt, which he combined with a smoran and smart knee socks.

Meanwhile, Camilla chose tartan in the same way as a white checkered dress – and added a gray blazer to complete her look.

The Duchess of Rothesay chose minimal jewelry for the occasion and added just a simple silver necklace.

She wore her hair down, finished her outfit with a pair of monochrome heels, and wore a grin while talking to benefactors.

She was gifted with a bouquet of colorful flowers while being greeted by local children standing along the streets.

Temporary portable structures known as Mulberry Harbors were secretly planned, tested and developed in the run-up to the events in 1944.

While in Dumfries and Galloway the couple also officially opens a new visitor center in the Bladnoch distillery, which was founded in 1817.

It closed at the beginning of World War II and reopened in 1957 before being taken over by Australian businessman David Prior four years ago.

Camilla will also visit Moat Brae House and Gardens in Dumfries, which served as inspiration for JM Barrie's Peter Pan.

The site was also opened in June this year as a visitor attraction and the National Center for Children & # 39; s Literature and Storytelling of Scotland.
