Royal Family News: Camilla Tapped To Host A Street Party For Platinum Jubilee
British Royal family news shows that the role of Camilla the Duchess of Cornwall has grown strong and steady since her marriage to Prince Charles. In the beginning she was treated harshly by the media and fans, in no small part because Charles’ first wife outed her as a home wrecker.
To be fair, Prince Charles admitted to his indiscretion and his first wife Diana admitted to her own adultery.
That was then, as in last century, and this century things have changed a lot. Coverage of Camilla has greatly softened and many of her detractors have come on board to accept her role as future queen consort.
As such Camilla can be expected to be given a key role in celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022. This is another sign that she come a long way both with the public and within the monarchy.
Royal Family News – Queen Elizabeth Will Have A Platinum Jubilee
It’s being reported that Camilla will preside over the ‘Big Lunch.’ This is where thousands of people gather in the street to celebrate the queen’s 70 years of service.
Elizabeth is the longest reigning monarch in British history. Her exact milestone occurs on February 6. The casual lunch will take place amidst a four day bank holiday weekend of parades, celebrations and events in June.
The 95-year old queen is slowly allowing her family members to take on her own duties and this means that her next successors, Prince Charles and his wife, are being seen more often. This is especially true following her October hospitalization and subsequent missing of several high profile events.
A palace insider told the Daily Mail, “This is part of a range of events taking place but it means Camilla will have a central role in leading the nation in the celebrations in a sign of her growing responsibilities.”
