The Duchess of Cornwall has posed up in front of the Liverpool Liver Bird wings in the Baltic Triangle.

Camilla, 71, was in the city as part of a joint visit with Prince Charles, and while he stopped at the Albert Dock and the Marie Curie Hospice , she took a look around one of the trendiest parts of town.

The wings are known as one of the most “Instagramable” spots in the city and has become a social media sensation.

While the Duchess was there, she spoke to its creator Paul Curtis before posing for a few snaps.

After her flying visit, Paul told the ECHO: “It’s all a bit bizarre, it still hasn’t sunk in a little.

“It’s great that she has come to Liverpool, that’s the main thing. It’s great that she has paid an interest in what happening in the Baltic area.

“For me it’s an honour to have someone like that notice the wings.”

Located on Jamaica Street, the mural has seen a wide variety of people posing for the perfect selfie, in what has been described as “the best place to take your new profile picture.”

Creator Paul was formerly a geologist who after being made redundant decided to become an artist.

“I was going to do a really big one but the wall owners said it might only be up for the next six months so I did a smaller one.

“When I started designing it, I thought how could I make it unique and settled on the colour and wings of the Liver Bird.

“I wanted to do something people could interact with and make it a bit of fun.”
