LONDON – Just a few months ago, new Queen Consort Camilla celebrated her 75th birthday with a special TV documentary, a magazine deal and the roar of approval from the general British public. Yet today, as she made her way to the crowds at Buckingham Palace, here is a grief-soaked woman who only recently received terrible news about her own family. And now his life has changed forever.
The loving support she gave to our new King Charles III was evident to all, but the royal show must go on. And, as we stand united in grief as a nation, behind the scenes, the wheels are turning fast.
Princess Anne is ready for a new, bigger role as Charles turns to slimming down and eliminating, hopefully, other members of the extended and unachievable royal family.
The mood is one of somber sadness, of course, but many people are angry that huge sporting events, concerts and large gatherings have been canceled. The queen, you see, wouldn’t have wanted that to happen. She believed in the show going on.
WHY THE QUEEN’S DEATH WON’T FIX THE SHATTERED RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN WILLIAM AND HARRY: ROYAL EXPERT
Meghan Markle is locked up in Frogmore Cottage, where she claimed there was no room to stand. Still, she has a tough choice: face the music of the British public who really don’t like what she did to the royal family or quickly disappear in Los Angeles.
Whatever she decides, it won’t be easy. She, along with Harry, have been lobbying all the senior members of the Royal Family lately, hence why Harry jumped ship for London even before his father, King Charles.
KING CHARLES III SAYS QUEEN ELIZABETH II’S DEATH WAS A ‘MOMENT I DREADED’ DURING MEETING PM TRUSS
Royal watchers have taken note of the first-ever event where King Charles III held his first audience with Liz Truss at Buckingham Palace, after the Prime Minister hailed the Queen as ‘one of the greatest leaders the world has ever had never seen”.
Truss was greeted straight out of her car by Major Johnny Thompson, the man the Queen had specifically asked to sit behind Harry and Meghan at the now infamous St. Paul Thanksgiving Service to keep an eye on them. Given his new status as a sex symbol, it’s no surprise he was asked to do the job, as his devotion to the queen was clearly evident at previous events.
The biggest scale of the event is that shops, tourist attractions and royal palaces closed today following news of the Queen’s death as the country enters its period of mourning.
As plans were drawn up to mark 10 days after the monarch’s death, many stores and attractions made the decision to close shop.
Selfridges, Liberty and Mulberry were among the first stores to announce they will keep their stores closed until Saturday as a mark of respect for the Queen, whose death was announced yesterday.
Meanwhile, performances will continue in theaters across the country, but many will dim the lights and observe a moment of silence before opening. Some also plan to play the national anthem and open condolence books for the public to sign.

The rest of the clan are awaiting their fate as many hope the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will not be welcome back into royal life. One can only hope that William, to whom Charles will defer on many serious matters of the crown, will now have the final say. After all, his next term is one that will truly shape the monarchy for the future.
Finally, the photos of an ashen-faced Catherine driving around Windsor today really said it all – wife, mother and queen for a day. For many, she is the pure definition of a queen-in-waiting.
I also hear that Tom Cruise has been in contact with members of the Royal Family following his spectacular appearance on the world stage during the Platinum Jubilee celebrations and, of course, the royal premiere of his Box Office Rocket,” Top Gun: Maverick”.
