The Royal family have given a rare insight into the life of Queen Consort Camilla as she takes on the responsibilities of her new role alongside her husband King Charles.

In a detailed and in-depth series of posts on Instagram, the Royal Family’s official account shared a series of photographs of Camilla highlighting her relationship with Charles and interests and causes she feels passionate about.

Compiled just one month after the Queen’s death and Charles’ accession to the throne, a slideshow of 17 images shared via Stories has offered an intimate and informative glimpse behind the curtain at the woman who now stands beside the reigning monarch.

Opening with a photo of the royal overlaid with the words “The Queen Consort”, a second slide follows immediately after featuring Camilla and Charles together alongside the words: “The Queen Consort supports her husband, the King, in carrying out his works and duties as Sovereign.

“Her Majesty also undertakes public engagements on behalf of the charities that she supports.”

Following this, the slideshow goes on to share a few biographical details about Camilla’s life, such as her birth in 1947 in London, her 2005 wedding to King Charles and the couple’s 15th wedding anniversary in 2020.

The stories then progress to direct attention towards some of the many charities Camilla supports, as it reveals she is the patron of more than 100 different charities, including those that support animal welfare and survivors of domestic violence.

It was also revealed that the first patronage The Queen Consort held was for the Royal Osteoporosis Society (ROS), a cause that held a particular personal significance for her.

A slide reads: “The Queen Consort's involvement in this charity began in 1994 after seeing her own mother and grandmother suffering with the disease.”

The slideshow also goes on to highlight Camilla’s love of books and reading, before sharing a quote from World Book Day 2020 in which she previously said: “If I can give one piece of advice, it is to put down your phones and pick up a book, especially before bed time.”

“Books never lose their signal or run out of battery and they will always take you to a thousand different worlds with every turn of a page.”

After discussing her love of reading, the slideshow then went on to discuss Camilla’s passion for tackling domestic violence and sexual abuse.

Sharing a clip of a speech in which she publicly discussed the importance of talking the issue, she could be seen saying: “We do not in any way hold all men responsible for sexual violence. But we do need them all aboard to tackle it."

She then adds: “After all, rapists are not born, they're constructed.

“And it takes an entire community, male and female, to dismantle the lies, words and actions that foster a culture in which sexual assault is seen as normal and in which it shames the victim.”

A number of other notable causes are also highlighted included her continued patronage of charities such as Battersea Dogs and Cats home in London – the rescue centre she had originally adopted her two Jack Russell terriers from.

A small section highlighting Camilla’s 13 military appointments then followed, which including Colonel Chief of the Rifles, a position she inherited from the late Prince Philip, her father-in-law.

Rounding off the video, the slideshow closes with an image of Camilla alongside the late Queen Elizabeth, accompanied by a quote from the former monarch.

It reads: “It is my sincere wish that, when the time comes, Camilla will be known as Queen Consort as she continues her own loyal service.”
