Two seven-year-old girls caught the royal eye on Tuesday, giving the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall a reminder of their wedding day.

Twins Grace and Helena Jordan were born on 9 April 2005, the day of Charles and Camilla's nuptials, and met the royal couple during their Diamond Jubilee tour of Canada.

A poster made by the girls to highlight their special birthday caught Camilla's attention when she joined Prince Charles at a Diamond Jubilee medal presentation in Toronto.

Their mother Jacqueline Jordan, an estate agent who is flying her family to England next month for the Diamond Jubilee celebrations, said: "I wrote to the Prince and Duchess on their first wedding anniversary and they sent me a lovely note back and a copy of their official wedding photograph.

"My daughters have been following the Royal Family since they were born. We're coming over for the Diamond Jubilee, we're doing the whole weekend and we're going to buy a hamper from Fortnum and Mason and sit and watch the pageant on the river."
