Royals enjoy Masked Ball for Charity

By  | 

Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall are literal party animals!

The royal couple had a great time animal-themed face masks during a Clarence House reception for the Elephant Family Animal Ball Charles and Camilla held sparkling black masquerade masks resembling big cats against their faces, while they had a laugh at some of the other masks resembling elephants and birds.

The ball was held to raise money for the Elephant Family charity, for which Charles and Camilla are co-presidents. The organization, dedicated to protecting the Asian elephants from extinction in the wild, was co-founded by Camilla’s brother, Mark Shand.

Other members of the royal family are also involved in the charity, with Princess Eugenie and Sarah Ferguson serving as patrons.
