Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, tipped for new role to take over after Philip’s death


CAMILLA, the Duchess of Cornwall, could be poised for a new role to take over after Prince Philip’s death.

The Royal Windsor Horse Show, of which Philip was the active President for 30 years, is set to return in July and could need a new royal in charge.

Royal expert Dickie Arbiter wrote on Twitter: “So pleased to see the #RoyalWindsorHorseShow is back again, this year from 1-4 July.

“Sadly its President, The Duke of Edinburgh – who did so much for the show – is no longer with us.

“Perhaps the #RWHS should consider approaching The Duchess of Cornwall to be its new President.”

The show will display entries to a Book of Condolence on a wall for Philip in a touching tribute to him this year.

The entries will also be bound into a book for presentation to The Queen.

He was a big part of the annual event before retiring from public duties in August 2017.

However, in 2019 he joined the Queen at the show to cheer on his granddaughter, Lady Louise Windsor, as she competed in carriage riding.

The Royal Windsor Horse Show Twitter account also made a special effort to mark the Queen’s 95th birthday last week, in what was her first birthday without her husband of 73 years.

The account posted a photo of Her Majesty beaming between two horses, while holding their reins and standing in a field of yellow daffodils.

The photo was captioned with: “On the occasion of Her Majesty The Queen’s 95th Birthday, the Committee and show office would like to send Her Majesty their best wishes.”

Royal fans shared their joy at seeing the Queen looking so relaxed alongside the horses.

One person wrote: “What a beautiful photograph. Simplicity at its best. Happy 95th Birthday to our Queen Elizabeth.”

Another added: “Wow what a beautiful and joyful picture. Great.”

Meanwhile, Camilla returned to royal duties following the Royal Family’s period of mourning as she started the second season of her online book club called The Reading Room.

The Duchess was pictured wearing a navy and white pleated dress by Fiona Clare for the occasion, as well as a new bracelet that was thought to be an anniversary present from Prince Charles.

In a video, she also explained how she has received many letters from Russia and also Indonesia, Australia and Europe over her club, with readers starting to interact with each other.

She said: “They’re so sort of warm and friendly and you know then they recommend their books, which is quite nice to sort of jot down when you are thinking of books.

“I mean, we have a slight lack of communication lately with all of us locked in, we haven’t had our family and friends around us so it’s quite nice to sort of talk to people through books online.

“And I’ve noticed through the comments, there are a lot of people beginning to sort of chat to each other and that’s, you know, that was the idea in the first place, just to get people chatting and communicating – swapping ideas.”
