Camilla will give a TV address speaking of how the Queen carved out her own role for many years in the “difficult position” of being a “solitary woman” in a male-dominated world.

Yesterday the Queen Consort joined her husband the King, along with the Prince and Princess of Wales, at a reception and lunch for the Governors-General of Antigua and Barbuda, Australia, the Bahamas, Belize, Canada, Grenada, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea.

The King later welcomed Justin Trudeau of Canada, Anthony Albanese of Australia, Bahamian PM Philip Davis, Jamaican PM Andrew Holness, and New Zealand’s Jacinda Ardern to Buckingham Palace.

In her pre-recorded tribute to be aired on BBC today shortly before the 8 pm minute’s silence, Camilla will say: “She’s been part of our lives forever. I’m 75 now and I can’t remember anyone except the Queen being there.”

“It must have been so difficult for her being a solitary woman. There weren’t women prime ministers or presidents. She was the only one, so I think she carved her own role.”

Remembering the late monarch, Camilla will add: “She’s got those wonderful blue eyes, that when she smiles they light up her whole face. I will always remember her smile. That smile is unforgettable.”
