Queen Camilla and Prince William: Good-humored stand-in for King Charles

There is no trace of the worries that the British royal family is currently facing: Queen Camilla (76) and Prince William (41) spoke on Monday (March 11th) on behalf of King Charles III. (75) attended the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey in good spirits. The heir to the British throne and his stepmother were seen exchanging amused smiles. They were also accompanied in the church by Princess Anne (73) as well as Prince Edward (60) and his wife Sophie (59).

According to the Daily Mail, Prince William was previously photographed leaving Windsor Castle in the car with Princess Kate (42). However, his wife did not attend the service as she is still recovering from abdominal surgery in January and is currently not attending any public royal engagements. Instead, she was on her way to a private appointment, according to the Daily Mail.

King Charles, who has also currently withdrawn from public engagements after a cancer diagnosis, sent a video message to the population on Commonwealth Day: In it, he promised to continue to serve "to the best of his ability." According to Sky News, the monarch's video speech, which is said to have been made at Windsor Castle in February, was part of the service in Westminster Abbey. The King is said to emphasize his determination to carry on despite his illness: "Over the last few weeks I have been deeply touched by your extremely kind and thoughtful wishes for my health, and in return I can only continue to serve you to the best of my ability throughout the Commonwealth."

Princess Kate, on the other hand, only made headlines at the weekend with an Instagram photo. With her photo post on Instagram on Sunday (March 10th), she actually wanted to return publicly for the first time after her abdominal operation in January and at the same time warmly congratulate all mothers on British Mother's Day. But just a few hours later, the distribution of the idyllic group photo of the Princess of Wales with her children Prince Louis (5), Prince George (10) and Princess Charlotte (8) was stopped by several photo agencies.

The reason: As the "Guardian" reported, among others, employees of various photo agencies such as Getty, Associated Press, Shutterstock and Reuters noticed several places in the snapshot that were clearly subject to subsequent editing. After this photo fake had the media rumor mill churning for a few hours, Prince William's wife (41) took a personal stand on X and admitted that she had manipulated the picture herself.
