Last month Camilla jetted out to Jordan on Sunday with the Prince of Wales, the couple’s first overseas engagement since Covid clipped the royals’ wings in March 2020. 

During the four-day tour, Charles and Camilla took part in more than 30 engagements, with the Duchess carrying out solo engagements in some of the more deprived areas of Amman and Cairo. 

Camilla’s recent engagements come amid reports she will play a leading part in celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee next year, in a sign of her rising role within the Royal Family.

Camilla will preside over the ‘Big Lunch’, where thousands of groups of families and friends get together for street parties to mark 70 years of the Her Majesty’s reign.

Elizabeth II, the longest reigning monarch in British history, will pass the milestone on February 6, and the lunch will be part of a long bank holiday weekend of celebrations and events planned for June.

With the Queen, 95, undertaking fewer duties, Prince Charles and his wife are increasingly being called upon to take the lead in areas which would normally fall to the head of state. 

Last month a palace source said: ‘The Duchess is increasingly comfortable in the role and confident doing the job. She knows very well what it involves.’
