Duchess Camilla addresses Queen Consort news publicly for the first time ever and discusses the one thing she won't quit, despite the role calling for many lifestyle changes.


It's been weeks since the Queen said Duchess Camilla will be Queen when Prince Charles is crowned King. Showing his love for the future Queen, Prince Charles' adorable tribute to Duchess Camilla warmed hearts across the globe.

One person who's remained notably mute is Camilla and Royal fans have waited with bated breath to hear what the future Queen Consort has to say on the matter.

The wait is now over as she addressed the exciting news while appearing on the famous Radio 4 show Woman's Hour. The Royal was there to speak to presenter Emma Barnett about her work with victims of domestic abuse.

During their conversation, recorded at Clarence House, the Duchess was reunited with one Diana Parkes, whose daughter Joanna Simpson was murdered by her husband in 2010.

Briefly addressing her future title Camilla said, "Of course, it's a great honor, it couldn't be anything else."

Showing that she's sticking to what matters most to her she added, "But it does help it. I'm going to keep up with these causes."

"You know if I start something like this, I'm not going to give up mid-channel," she added, showing her determination. "I'm just going to keep going to try and help the likes of people like Diana ... I hope I should be doing it for a lifetime."

This isn't the first time the Duchess of Cornwall spoke out in support of domestic abuse victims and has made helping those affected by the issue one of her main causes.

As well as discussing the vital cause, HRH also discussed the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations. “It's always lovely to have something happy to look forward to isn't it? she said."

"I mean, we've all been through hard times," she added. "We've all been locked away from our family and friends. And now we could all get together again and celebrate."
