The Queen Consort’s response to claims made by Prince Harry in his memoir Spare have has been praised by a royal expert.
Since publication of his memoir, Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, have seen their popularity fall despite Spare being the fastest selling non-fiction work.
Asked what people in the US admire about the Queen Consort, Los Angeles-based royal commentator Kinsey Schofield told Express.co.uk: “Camilla’s dignified silence seems to be a quality Americans admire.
“Of course, how are you supposed to respond to a nearly 40-year-old man complaining about you turning one of their multiple bedrooms into a closet?”

Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle have given unprecedented insight into the Royal Family and in doing so, they have provoked a backlash from some of their critics, with Piers Morgan and Candace Owens slamming the couple for detailing their rift with the UK-based royals.
Now, however, a royal author has claimed the Sussexes risk losing some of their “staunch supporters”.
Newsweek this week revealed Harry and Meghan have both seen their popularity drop across the pond.
Harry was liked by 31 percent and disliked by 38 percent of those polled giving him a net approval rating of -7.

Asked whether Camilla’s popularity is rising in the US, Ms Schofield, who hosts the To Di For Daily podcast, said: “I would not suggest there is necessarily a strong increase in the Queen Consort’s popularity as much as there is a decline in the Duke and Duchess of Sussex brand.
“Newsweek recently commissioned a poll that suggested Harry and Meghan’s favorability had taken such a thrashing post Spare that Camilla was now more popular than Meghan Markle in America. Despite The Crown season 5’s most recent release.”
She added: “Likely due to an oversaturation of content from Netflix to books to interviews, Americans seem to be tiring of Harry and Meghan.”

Buckingham Palace has recently released further details of the historic event which will take place at Westminster Abbey on morning of Saturday, May 6, conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury.
According to the palace, it will be “a solemn religious service, as well as an occasion for celebration and pageantry”.
The service will “reflect the monarch’s role today and look towards the future, while being rooted in longstanding traditions and pageantry”.

It will also be a poignant occasion for some royal fans who would like to have seen Diana, Princess of Wales, take her place by the side of King Charles had events turned out differently.
Ms Schofield told Express.co.uk: “We all miss and love Princess Diana, but I think that we will be so overwhelmed by the beautiful display of elegance and tradition that we will appreciate the moment.
“The Queen Consort has earned her place and I don’t know of a couple more in love than Charles and Camilla.
“I think the Queen Consort will play a more prominent role [at the coronation] than Prince Philip did, however, to [what] extent I don’t know.”
After the service they will return to the palace in a larger ceremonial procession, known as “the coronation procession”, joined by other members of the Royal Family.
At the palace, Charles and Camilla will be joined by family members on the balcony to conclude the day’s ceremonial events.
The palace has not said exactly which family members will appear in the coronation procession or on the balcony.
