Duchess of Cornwall joins female stars for festival celebrating women
A three-day celebration of women kicks off at the Southbank Centre today with the official backing of the Duchess of Cornwall.

The Duchess showed her sisterly solidarity by welcoming festival stars including singer Annie Lennox, campaigner Bianca Jagger and author Kate Mosse to Clarence House to show support for the WOW - Women of the World event.

PR executive Lynne Franks, lawyer Helena Kennedy, psychoanalyst Susie Orbach, Band of Gold screenwriter Kay Mellor and writers Kathy Lette and Joanna Trollope were also among who met the Duchess yesterday before joining the programme of mentoring workshops, comedy, music, readings and debates on everything from prostitution to fashion. The festival runs until Sunday.

Organiser Jude Kelly, the Southbank Centre's artistic director, admitted she was "thrilled" the Duchess had thrown her weight behind what is now intended to be an annual event. It was strange no such festival already existed even though it is now a century since the first International Women's Day. But Ms Kelly said: "The zeitgeist called. It's time."

It is about time the royal women step into the 21st century. And I hope Camilla discreetly enlisted the psychoanalyst to provide services for Kate. ...

Good of Camilla to be part of this. Her charities are spot on.
