Queen Consort Camilla praised for reaction after slipping while exiting cathedral


The Queen Consort Camillahas been praised by royal fans for her reaction after slipping while exiting the Llandaff Cathedral.

According toThe Daily TelegraphCamila has been nursing a broken toe which occurred before thedeath of Queen Elizabeth II last ThursdaySeptember 8.

A source told the newspaper she has just been "getting on” with the job of supporting the King during an emotionally and physically gruelling week.

"It is unfortunate timing to say the least but she’s been an absolute trouper,” the source continued

Yet despite her painful injury she has still managed to carry out duties at the King’s side. However, while leaving the cathedral on Friday, she appeared to have slipped while walking in the procession.

ITV Royal Editor Chris Ship tweeted on Friday: “Total class the way the Queen Consort manages this minor slip on her way out of @LlandaffCath.

“Given Camilla is managing to do this whole week while nursing a broken toe – she handled it with her usual humour….”

In agreement with Chris, a royal fan said: “Oh goodness, and she has been so graceful, agreed, you wouldn’t even know. In the video she deals with the stuck heel very well. Wonderful work Queen Consort xx”

While another user wrote: “Pain is exhausting without all the emotional turmoil of this past week. I admire her.”

“She's done very well and looked very elegant in the process,” gushed a third royal fan.

Others felt she simply caught her shoe heel in between the floor tile but handled it like a professional.

"Must be nerve racking when everything is being filmed live and watched by millions/billion!

"Think her heel of her shoe got stuck in a gap of the stone , lucky she never fell," quipped a forth.”

“I’ve grown to respect Camilla,” a fifth tweeted.

“Her devotion to duty, never complaining, no dramas, no impossible demands no matter how difficult and gruelling the schedules are on their positions,” they continued.

It comes as the royal couple visited Wales – King Charles III's first tour as the new monarch. They attended a service of prayer and reflection for the life of the Queen at Llandaff Cathedral in Cardiff.

Charles arrived by helicopter with the Queen Consort and travelled by state limousine. The service was also attended by Prime Minister Liz Truss and leading figures from Wales.

A booming gun salute fired from Cardiff Castle was heard across the Welsh capital when the King and Queen Consort first arrived.

Cheering schoolchildren and members of the public lined the royal couple’s route to the cathedral.
