Queen Camilla shows off ‘human side’ as she’s brought to tears during D-Day anniverary

Queen Camilla has been the shining star of the Royal Family in recent months. When King Charles started his cancer treatment, his wife was tasked with bearing the burden of responsibility, filling in for him at important events and even giving speeches, which she reportedly didn’t enjoy.

Thankfully, Charles has returned – at least in part – to royal engagements in recent months. This coming summer includes many special events, including this week’s Trooping the Colour, but which engagements the King will attend has yet to be determined. Meanwhile, Camilla continues to work hard to ensure that the monarchy remains fully functional, and in doing so has drawn praise.

Being a member of the Royal Family inevitably means keeping a facade and not expressing too many “extreme” emotions while out on duty. Yet Queen Camilla and her husband failed to adhere to that specific rule during the 80th anniversary of D-Day, where she was seen with tears in her eyes because of one very special happening.

It’s safe to assume Queen Camilla hasn’t had many moments of peace and quiet so this year. For her and Charles, 2024 was supposed to be the first full year as king and queen, but it only took weeks before everything changed.

Queen Camilla praised for royal work during King Charles’ absence

King Charles was diagnosed with cancer after undergoing treatment for an enlarged prostate. The monarch thereafter postponed all of his engagements as he began treatment. At the same time, Kate Middleton underwent her abdominal surgery, and was subsequently also diagnosed with cancer. As a result, there weren’t that many senior working royals left to assume daily duties.

In that regard, Queen Camilla stepped up massively. With her husband waylaid by his treatment, she accepted massive responsibility, becoming the temporary lynchpin of the Royal Family in the process.

Remember, it’s taken her many years to be accepted by the public, though she’s now being praised for the way she has handled the very challenging situation regarding Charles’ cancer, as well as all that comes with it.

Some months ago, royal expert Angela Levin claimed that Camilla is the one “holding the royal family” together.

“I mean, to wait till you’re 73 is a long time before you can take the crown. I think obviously, at his age, it’s very difficult, but he’s very determined, and he’s only really just started to be king,” Levin said while appearing on GB News.

“Supporting him very much, absolutely by his side, is Queen Camilla, who is going to all the engagements that they would have gone to together on her own.”

“And so that way he will feel it’s still moving, it’s still running, and they can discuss it and talk about it. And I think that’s marvelous. I mean, she is holding the Royal Family up and being strong. If you imagine 30 years ago, people were saying the whole Royal Family would absolutely disintegrate, and she would be of no use.”

“One of the best things to happen to the royal family”

Levin added that Camilla has revealed she doesn’t like the spotlight. However, she’s become very “accessible” and makes people laugh when meeting members of the public.

“To support her husband. She understands him very well because they’ve been together for over 50 years, before they even got married. it’s a long time and they make each other laugh,” Levin added.

In recent months, Levin hasn’t been the only royal expert to praise Queen Camilla. After Camilla appeared solo at the Easter service at Worcester Cathedral – usually a big event for the royals, and certainly for the monarch – royal expert and former correspondent Charles Rae praised the queen for supporting Charles and Kate Middleton during this troublesome time, labeling her a “remarkable asset.”

Rae explained that Queen Camilla has “proven herself” in recent years, not least because of how she was treated in the aftermath of Princess Diana’s death in 1997.

He added that Camilla is “one of the best things to happen to the Royal Family” in a “good number of years.”
