After the awards ceremony, Plumpton College, a wine industry training institution which has a long association with Camilla, who grew up near her in Sussex, affectionately dubbed the Queen a “local girl”.

Her father, Major Bruce Shand, was a wine merchant and passed on his love of the grape to his daughter, who was known to prefer a glass of red.

They lived in the village of Plumpton and Camilla went to school in nearby Ditchling.

Jeremy Kerswell, principal and chief executive of Plumpton College, received the Queen’s Anniversary Award on behalf of his institution, which has trained many of the country’s wine industry experts over decades.

He said: “It means a lot, our award was a recognition of all the work the university has done over a number of years which has impacted the growth and success of the wine industry.”

“When I went on stage she said, ‘I’m really glad to see Plumpton here,’ and she talked about wanting to come visit and see the university and pointed out, ‘your wine is really good too, isn’t it?’
