Camilla, the Queen Consort, is understandably working harder than ever. With the passing of Queen Elizabeth she’s taken on new duties, as well as been forced to make big adjustments alongside her husband, King Charles.Yet while members of the Royal Family are continuing with their duties post-Elizabeth, there remains a huge event on the horizon. On May 6, King Charles and Camilla’s coronation will take place, and the preparations are well underway.As per the latest reports, however, Camilla has been forced to take a step back and rest. Buckingham Palace have announced that the Queen Consort is pulling out of a number of events as she has “contracted illness.” It was later confirmed that she has tested positive for Covid-19.
King Charles’ coronation is to be held on May 6, and on that day Camilla will officially be named Queen Consort. Interestingly, reports suggest that she might drop the “Consort” in her title before the coronation.“Some papers refer to her as the Queen. I think they will drop the Consort at some point. Every queen consort has just been known as The Queen,” Palmer said on the Express podcast Royal Round-Up.Camilla has been accepted by the public and is today recognized as one of the most popular members of the Royal Family. Following the Queen’s passing, she was a symbol of strength and courage and has continued to serve the Crown in a significant way.
“A case of putting some distance between her death and how Camilla is described,” Palmer added.“By the Coronation they will just be calling her the Queen.Ever since the Queen’s death, speculation surrounding what Charles’ coronation might look like has been rampant. Just weeks ago, Buckingham Palace finally revealed the details of the first royal coronation in over 70 years – and it looks set to be a big one“Across the Coronation Weekend, there will be further opportunities for people to come together in celebration of the historic occasion. On Sunday, May 7 2023, a special Coronation Concert will be staged and broadcast live at Windsor Castle by the BBC and BBC Studios, with several thousand pairs of tickets to be made available via public ballot,” Buckingham Palace wrote in a statement.
“The Coronation Big Lunch, at which neighbors and communities are invited to share food and fun together, will take place across the country on the same date.” The coronation itself will take place at Westminister Abbey, conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby.It will be “a solemn religious service, as well as an occasion for celebration and pageantry.” As the Palace describes, it will “reflect the Monarch’s role today and look towards the future, while being rooted in longstanding traditions and pageantry.”Camilla’s physical activities – ‘big fan of Yoga and Pilates’
At age 75, the Queen Consort is still very much active. She is known to have a very healthy diet and participates in physical activities.Speaking to Express, training and nutrition expert David Wiener gave more insight into Camilla’s physical activities and fitness routine.“Camilla actually admitted how much of a big fan she is of Yoga and Pilates, which is what I would recommend people of that age to do,” he said.“As you get older, it comes to no surprise you should be doing less strenuous exercise as it could cause muscular pain and your bones become much more fragile.”He added: “Furthermore, Camilla and Charles are known to love to spend their time walking the dogs or walking in the countryside Walking is one of the best exercises you can do, not only does it get your body moving, but it also is gentle on your body.”
Sure, walking and doing yoga are very good for you. But three years ago, Camilla revealed that she was doing something that probably surprised many.As part of her keep-fit mission, the Queen Consort has taken ballet classes for Silver Swans, a group providing tutorials for people over 55.Starting her own ballet career
In 2020, Camilla said she had taken lessons for about 18 months with a “group of ancient friends.”“At first, I thought it was going to be very funny, and I was going to laugh at everybody toppling over next door to me. But we concentrate so hard that we don’t even know what our friend next door is doing. I think to myself drop your shoulders, breathe deeply, don’t hunch,” Camilla said.
“You might groan a bit afterwards, huff, grunt and everything else. But you do feel so much better. It’s fun,” she continued, adding that she was a beginner but felt she had improved over the first year.But I certainly am not going to be taking to the stage,” Camilla concluded.
