Shortly before the start of the state visit of Camilla and her husband King Charles III. On Wednesday, the Royal Family's Twitter account read: "Deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Paul O'Grady who has worked closely with Her Majesty in supporting (the shelter) Battersea (...)."
O'Grady provided a ton of laughs and many "tail-wagging memories," the statement said. There was also a photo of Camilla and O'Grady with a small dog.
O'Grady rose to fame in Britain in the 1980s as drag queen Lily Savage. He later worked as a TV and radio presenter.
