4084

CAMILLA, Duchess of Cornwall, had a hectic Christmas day that was full of “swearing” and racing between the Royal Family and her own, royal commentator Angela Mollard revealed.

As per tradition, the Royal Family spent their Christmas Day at the Sandringham Estate in Norfolk. Most senior members of the family turned up for the day as part of a “regimented” celebration, in which they attended church and exchanged gifts. However, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, had a bit of a mad day as she raced between two families.

Royal commentator Angela Mollard joined Zoe Burrell on her ‘Royals’ podcast to reveal what Prince Charles’ wife got up to.

She said: “This is interesting, isn’t it?

“It’s just so many people at home. Normal people going about their business.

“They have a situation where they might be from a blended family or may have divorced and they have another family.”

The royal expert continued: “So if you think about it, Camilla actually has her son and her daughter and her grandchildren who are completely separate to the rest of the Royal Family.

“She’s Charles’ second wife.

“So what she’s doing this year is she’s going to the church. She wasn’t there last year because she had a really heavy cold.

“This year she’s going to the church and then she’ll have lunch, and then after the Queen’s Speech, which I think is around 3pm, she’ll make her way down to London.”

Ms Mollard added: “We know this because her son, Tom Parker-Bowles, who’s a chef and writes cookbooks, has talked about the fact that they’ll come down to London and then she’ll spend the evening with her son, her daughter and her grandchildren.

“Tom has written a book about Christmas food and he revealed this very funny thing about how when he was a little boy, his mum and his aunt used to get up early to put the turkey into the AGA, which are this cold ovens that you have in British country kitchens.

“They’d be up at 6am, swearing while trying to, as he put it, kick the turkey into the oven.”

She said: “You can totally believe that with Camilla, she’d have a fag going and the other hand would be pushing the turkey into the oven.

“I love the way that he’s sort of given that viewpoint of his mum.”

Breakfast on Christmas day plays a big part of the royal celebrations, with a “special name” being used to describe it.

When asked about the “special name for breakfast”, Ms Mollard told listeners: “They call it ‘mucking in’.

“It’s all laid out in a buffet-style. There’s no formal breakfast, you can go help yourself when you want to.”
