Camilla to join Queen and Royal Family at Remembrance service tonight after illness

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, will join the Queen and other senior members of the Royal Family at tonight’s Festival of Remembrance, royal insiders have confirmed. The Times’ royal correspondent Roya Nikkah wrote on Twitter: “The Duchess of Cornwall will join the Queen and members of the Royal Family at this evening’s @PoppyLegion Festival of Remembrance at @RoyalAlbertHall, royal sources have confirmed. 

“Earlier this week the Duchess had to cancel a Remembrance engagement due to a chest infection.”   

Camilla was “ordered by her doctor” to cancel two of her scheduled engagements earlier this week, Clarence House said.  

A spokeswoman confirmed to on Thursday that the Duchess of Cornwall was suffering from a chest infection, which had worsened earlier this week. 

She said: “The Duchess of Cornwall has been told by her doctor to cancel her engagements owing to a chest infection which has got progressively worse over the last few days.”     

Because of her poor health, Camilla was forced to miss a gala dinner on Wednesday night, where she would have taken part in celebrations for the 200th birthday of Prince Albert, patron of the London Library. 

On the following day, Camilla also missed an event very important for her, a visit to the Field of Remembrance.
