THE Duchess of Cornwall today confessed: “I need to slow down.”

On a visit to the sumptuous £1billion palace of the Sultan of Brunei, Camilla, 70, revealed that she found royal life tiring.

Sitting down for a chat during an audience with the Sultan’s wife, Queen Saleha, Camilla discussed her 11-day tour of south-east Asia and India with Charles, which included a flying visit to oil-rich Brunei for a few hours in between visiting Singapore and Malaysia.

When Queen Saleha, who is the same age as the Duchess, asked if it was tiring, Camilla replied cheerfully: “Very tiring. Every day, we’re non-stop. It’s more tiring as you get older. I keep trying to tell everybody that I’m not as young as I used to be, and have to slow down.”

Earlier, weighed down by a huge garland on a visit to a Gurkha battalion stationed in Brunei, Camilla had looked to be struggling in the 84F (29C) heat. In a room at his 1,788-room palace, the 71-year-old Sultan, who is worth £15billion, hosted a tea party for Charles and Camilla and 60 members of his family.
