STUDENTS at the Brit School welcomed a VIP guest this morning - the Duchess of Cornwall.
Camilla gave the world-renowned performing arts school the Royal seal of approval during her tour of its facilities on Wednesday.
The Duchess chatted to students and teachers and enjoyed a dress rehearsal of the school's new production of the musical Pippin.
She was also given a guided tour of the school, including its make-up room, theatre, and film and technology suite.
Leah Harding-Scott, 16, a media student, was among those to rub shoulders with royalty.
She said: "I'm really excited. It's really cool. I can't believe the future queen is in my building, at my school.
"I can't believe it. I'm a massive fan of the Royal family, so this is great."
Make-up student Amber Sansom-English, 18, added: "I'm going to the London Fashion College in September and I've loved learning at the Brit School, so meeting Camilla has topped it off.
"It's great to meet someone as high up as her, who doesn't have an association with art but still appreciates it."
The Duchess also spoke with teachers during her visit - her third trip to Croydon in as many years.
Olivia Chew, a make-up and costume teacher, said; "It's lovely, it's really nice fotr the students to be able to showcase their work. All the students are very dedicated.
"It was absolutely lovely. The students have worked so hard, so it's nice for her to be able to see it."
The Brit, which has spawned chart stars including Adele, Jessie J, Leona Lewis and Amy Winehouse over the years, is used to celebrity visits, having welcomed Take That star Gary Barlow through its doors last year.
The Duchess is no stranger to Croydon, having come here with Prince Charles in the aftermath of the 2011 riots and again last September, where the Royal couple staged a walkabout in Surrey Street and met students from Croydon College.
