Royal expert and broadcaster Angela Levin has discussed the close bond between Elizabeth II and Camilla, Britain’s Queen Consort. Ms Levin described the pair as having “had a lot in common” with a similar sense of humour. Camilla, previously titled the Duchess of Cornwall, become Queen Consort on the death of the Queen on Thursday when the Crown passed to her husband, King Charles III.
Ms Levin told TalkRADIO: “They had such a lot in common, of course, Camilla and the Queen.
“They could talk horses all day long. They could talk dogs all day long.
“They both have a very similar sense of humour, very quick and self-deprecating.
“So they had all the conditions of a warm relationship.”
