On Tuesday, the Duchess of Cornwall marked International Women’s Day (IWD) by hosting a reception at Clarence House. Camilla, 74, invited along 90 outstanding women for her first in-person celebration of the occasion in two years.
The guest list included former Spice Girl turned Women’s Aid ambassador, Mel B, and Labour deputy leader Angela Rayner.
Also, Inna Prystaiko, the wife of Ukrainian ambassador Vadym Prystaiko, received a personal invitation after moving the Duchess to tears last week during a visit to the Ukrainian Catholic Cathedral in London.
Camilla also came face to face with her alter ego – the actress who plays her in the acclaimed Netflix series The Crown.
Emerald Fennell who plays Camilla when she is younger in the show has earned an Emmy nomination for her portrayal of the Duchess.
During a speech to her predominantly female audience, Camilla quipped: “It is reassuring to know that, if I should fall off my perch at any moment, my fictional alter ego is here to take over—so, Emerald, be prepared!”
While the joke was clearly meant in jest, it appeared to draw royal fans’ attention to Camilla’s notably less-than-sturdy stature.
Royal fans were left concerned for the Duchess of Cornwall’s health, after noticing the future Queen Consort’s shaky hand.
Footage shared on social media from the event showed the Duchess was shaking as she delivered her speech, prompting widespread theories over the cause of the tremor.
