As Charles and Camilla disembarked on the HMS Iron Duke after a reception attended by members of the Bordeaux community and French-British military representatives, photographers captured a very cute shot of the Queen's husband giving her his hand so she wouldn't trip on her heels.

This is one of the rare shots where the couple, who have been together for eighteen years, are depicted holding hands at a public event.

Also during the visit to Bordeaux, Camille had a slight embarrassment, as the wind again tried to spoil her styling as the queen descended the plane ramp.

The same situation happened a day earlier at Orly airport, when the couple had just flown from Great Britain to France.
