Queen Consort Camilla reportedly has been in “quite a bit of pain” from breaking her toe earlier this month before Queen Elizabeth II died.
A source told The Telegraph on Thursday that although she’s been in pain, she’s “just getting on with it.”
“It is unfortunate timing to say the least but she’s been an absolute trooper,” the source added.
She’s been standing in all the official ceremonies as well as made the rounds to meet with people who have gathered outside the palace while dealing with the ongoing injury. Although she did get a reprieve when she rode in a car during the procession to Westminster Hall on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, the king, it appears, may be dealing with some health problems of his own as his hands seemed raw and redder at the knuckles and joints of his fingers while greeting mourners.
Fans of the royal family voiced their concerns for the king’s health on social media, especially after his late mother was seen with discolored hands before her death.
The former Duchess of Cornwall was also able to take a load off her injured foot when the pair sat on their thrones at Westminster Hall in London for the first time on Monday.
Afterwards, the former Prince of Wales, 73, addressed the 900 members of Parliament and the House of the Lords for the first time as King.
“As I stand before you here today I cannot help but feel the weight of history, which surrounds us and which reminds us of the vital parliamentary traditions,” he began his address before vowing to carry on Queen Elizabeth II’s legacy of “devotion” and “duty.”
Following a series of public appearances, the two retreated back to their respective homes, the king at Highgrove in Gloucestershire while Camilla went to her Wiltshire abode, before getting ready for the late Queen’s funeral on Monday.
While Camilla and Charles have quickly stepped into their roles, the new Queen’s family will not be granted any royal titles and many members of the royal family will have to wait until the mourning period is over to be given their new titles.
Queen Elizabeth II died at the age of 96 on Sept. 8 hours after royal officials announced she was put under “medical supervision.”
