Queen Camilla headed to Bath this morning to visit the newly-opened offices of the Royal Osteoporosis Society, of which she has been patron for years. King Charles’s wife appeared in high spirits as she spoke with her hosts who led her through the building. 

Last year, the Queen Consort warned of the dangers of osteoporosis as she urged older people to check their risk of developing the “devastating” bone disease.

Camilla made the appeal last October, and said in a statement: “Both my grandmother and my mother died as a result of osteoporosis.

“At the time, the disease was seldom discussed, rarely diagnosed and was usually acknowledged as an unavoidable part of growing older.

“Now, thankfully, we know far more about the causes, symptoms and available treatments.”
