The Duchess of Rothesay was said to be "very nice"
The Duchess of Rothesay backed meals on wheels for the elderly as she delivered lunch to a pensioner.
The Duchess was in Ballater, Aberdeenshire, to mark the beginning of Community Meals On Wheels Week and see the service in operation for herself.
Camilla helped carry boxes of 93-year-old Alexander Irvine's meals into his house and talked to him while his roast dinner was prepared.
He said she was "very nice" after they shared a glass of whisky.
Camilla met representatives of the National Association of Care Catering (NACC), which provides support for the meals on wheels service.
She was shown how the food is stored, and asked various questions, including where it is sourced from and its nutritional value.
The NACC said the service had previously been offered royal support when, in 1997, the late Queen Mother lunched on roast beef and apple pie delivered to Clarence House.
NACC chair Sue Ullmann said: "We have been researching why there has been this decline in meals on wheels, and one of the things to come out is that people's perception of it is quite outdated.
"The technology has changed a lot, and a lot of work has gone into the variety and nutritional content on offer.
"This visit is the best thing that could have happened to us. The Duchess is very interested in the nutrition of the elderly and it certainly showed."
