Royal treatment for Imelda in London

Rockabilly star Imelda May showed off her country colours when she met the Duchess of Cornwall at Clarence House in London.

The mum-of-one was across the water to attend a reception to mark International Credit Union Day and sported a stylish green dress to mark the occasion.

Imelda is the face of credit unions in Ireland and has appeared in a number of television adverts.


The Duchess - Camilla Parker Bowles - who opened a credit union account last year spoke to her guests this week about the role credit unions play in local communities and how they help people get loans.

"Credit unions serve people, not profit," she said.

"They provide a friendly financial community where members mutually benefit from advice, as well as savings accounts and loans.

"I do believe credit unions could be a real force for change in the financial landscape and are truly a cause worth championing," Ms Parker Bowles concluded.
