Prince Charles and Camilla’s roles upgraded

As the duo prepare to become King and Queen Consort.

Prince Charles and wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, have taken a major step towards becoming King and Queen Consort, as their roles as Order of the Garter Service have been upgraded.

As the royal family honoured those who have been knighted in recognition of their public service in Windsor today, Charles and Camilla played a different role than usual.

The 700-year-old tradition is the oldest and most senior Order of Chivalry in Britain – and therefore a perfect opportunity for the couple to learn about their future as King and Queen Consort.

It was a huge upgrade from their previous role, in which they followed the Queen in their own carriage.

The couple filled retired Prince Philip’s spot as Prince Charles learnt about his future role as King of Britain.
