Camilla, The Duchess of Cornwall, has broken her silence on news that she will be known as Queen once Prince Charles becomes King.
The news was announced last week by Her Majesty the Queen, on the 70th anniversary of her accession to the throne.
In a letter, the Queen thanked the public and her family for their support during her 70-year reign. She also expressed her wishes for Camilla to be known as Queen Consort, once Prince Charles becomes King.
She wrote: "When, in the fullness of time, my son Charles becomes King, I know you will give him and his wife Camilla the same support that you have given me; and it is my sincere wish that, when the time comes, Camilla will be known as Queen Consort as she continues her own loyal service."
Following the news, Camilla has spoken about her feelings on the title, explaining at an engagement today that she is “very, very honoured and very touched” at the title.
In other royal news, it was revealed on Thursday that Prince Charles, 73, has tested positive for covid-19 for a second time, and is now isolating.
Clarence House announced the news on Twitter, explaining the Prince of Wales had postponed a visit to Winchester to unveil a statue.
"This morning The Prince of Wales has tested positive for COVID-19 and is now self-isolating," the post read.
"HRH is deeply disappointed not to be able to attend today's events in Winchester and will look to reschedule his visit as soon as possible."
The evening before Charles tested positive, he and Camilla had been at an engagement at the British Museum.
It's the second time Prince Charles has tested positive for coronavirus, after contracting the illness in March 2020.
