By Harry Mottram: Bath had the visit of a VIP on Wednesday, January 25th, when Her Majesty The Queen Consort (formerly HRH The Duchess of Cornwall) called in to visit the new offices of the The Royal Osteoporosis Society (ROS) at St James House.

Camilla (as she is usually referred to) is a long time supporter of the charity following her late mother’s and late grandmother’s experiences of osteoporosis. 

The Royal visitor also met members of the Council and other officials as well as the MP at the Guildhall.

Half of women and one fifth of men over 50 will break a bone due to osteoporosis. The condition causes bones to weaken and fracture following simple injuries – including a cough, a fall from standing height, or even a hug from grandchildren. Fractures caused by osteoporosis are one of the most urgent threats to people living well in later life, and to the independence and freedom people deserve.
