Royals embrace fancy dress at masquerade ball

Prince Charles and Camilla wore matching sparkly animal masks for a themed masquerade ball they hosted at Clarence House yesterday, Thursday 13 June.

The royal pair clearly enjoyed themselves as they hosted the Elephant Family Animal Ball at their London home, to help raise money for the continued conservation of some of the world’s most endangered species.

It’s the third year in a row that the Prince and Duchess have backed the charity, with last night’s ball requiring everyone to dress up for a masquerade ball, with all guests asked to wear animal inspired head-pieces. The royal couple themselves opted for matching black sequinned bear masks.

The official press pictures taken prior to and during the event showed that the Prince of Wales was particularly pleased to see the amusing and creative masks and costumes, which saw celebrity guests such as Vivienne Westwood, Tracey Emin, and actor Douglas Booth posing as peacocks, lobsters, monkeys and tigers, as well as butterflies, spiders and bees.
