Don't go in, darling - Charles warns Camilla against dip on the Gold Coast

The Duchess of Cornwall dipped her toes into the sea at the Gold Coast as she and Charles strolled along the beach.

Camilla took off her shoes, showing off her rose pink painted toe nails, and walked towards the sea front at Broadbeach.

"Don't go in, darling", the Prince of Wales warned, as the waves lapped onto the sand.

One of Camilla's aides held her cream wedged shoes as she went barefoot, the sun beaming down on the beach after a brief downpour earlier in the day.

The couple, on a tour of Australia after Charles opened the Commonwealth Games on Wednesday evening, were then given a demonstration of a rescue drill by the Nippers young lifesavers.
