‘The royals have had their annual summer holiday and now it’s the time for them to buckle down and get back to work – but instead, Camilla is gallivanting around Europe in her swimsuit and partying on boats. The whole thing has really set the Queen off. She couldn’t be more angry.’
Camilla once famously pulled out of a Middle East tour because aides said she found it ‘too hot’.
According to a new Court Circular report, Camilla has undertaken a meagre 57 per cent of the official royal engagements Queen Elizabeth II has taken on this year. As of September, Camilla has worked just 69 engagements, coming in as the eighth hardest working royal out of 15 royal family members.
That means the future queen is in the bottom half of her family when it comes to her work ethic.
Britain's Telegraph newspaper quotes a source as saying, 'She is a lazy woman, she certainly doesn't want to work. Charles and Camilla argue about how little she really wants to get involved.'
Camilla’s alleged 'laziness' has been slammed before. Robert Higdon, the former head of Charles’ charities in the US, was quoted as saying on the Duchess: ‘For her to get up in the morning and survive until nightfall is a major effort.
‘It was even hard for her to get out of bed. She tries her best to do nothing during the day. It was horrible, a disaster.’
But whatever people are saying, it seems Camilla is determined to stay true to herself, and enjoy a spot of sun when she feels like it, no matter what.
