Duchess of Cornwall praised for her bowling skills

By Super Admin

London, May 12 (ANI): Duchess of Cornwall was showered with praises for bowling "a good length" despite trying her hand at the sport for the first time.

The wife of Prince of Wales was at the Box Bowls Club in Wiltshire for the opening of their new 400,000-pound clubhouse when she was encouraged to take up the challenge.

"I've never bowled before but I'll have a go," the Telegraph quoted the Duchess as saying.

While her debut attempt fell short of nearly two metres, her second go, a "jack high", won her praises.

Club secretary Jean Collier, 63, said: "I thought she was great. In bowling terms, she bowled a good length. If you forget her first ball, the second one was jack-high (level with the jack) and that is very important."We say the three 'Ls' in bowling are line, length and luck. She was very relaxed and the ladies and gentlemen of the club will be delighted she bowled on our green." (ANI)
