Camilla ‘ready to become Queen’ after ‘amazing’ public appearance, say fans

Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall is "ready to step into the role of Queen," royal fans have said following her latest public appearance.

Prince Charles and Camilla were in the parade ring at Royal Ascot on Wednesday, where they presented the winning prizes in the aptly named Prince of Wales’s Stakes, won by the thoroughbred Love.

The Duchess wore a champagne chiffon dress with matching face mask, both by Fiona Clare, and a hat by Philip Treacy.

Fans loved Camilla's outfit, with some commenting on social media that she looks "ready to be Queen".

One person wrote: "Doesn’t she look amazing? Absolutely ready to step into the role of Queen when the time comes."

Another added: "She has done her job really well with so much dignity and never complaining.

"Her loyalty to The Crown is unquestionable, that's why HM gave her the GCVO and made her a member of Privy Council.

"Great support for the future king, that's the important thing."

Members of the royal family had spent the day enjoying the thrills of the turf at the world-famous Berkshire meet, with the Earl and Countess of Wessex and the Princess Royal also spotted in the royal box.

Sophie was all smiles when she arrived at Royal Ascot in contrast to a recent BBC interview when her eyes filled with tears when she recounted a fond memory about the late Duke of Edinburgh.

Camilla has talked about how she has been bitten by the racing bug and experienced the thrills and disappointments of owning a thoroughbred.

She told ITV Racing she has two horses in training but said the hopes of a good runner can soon be dashed.

The duchess said: "We all know horses don’t we, we start off thinking this is the one – this is the one that’s going to go on, you know, if it’s the flat it’s going to go on and win the Derby if it’s jumping it’s definitely going to win the Gold Cup.

"So you all start with great hope, as it goes on hope is shattered bit by bit."

Camilla mentioned one of her previous horses Carntop, who showed initial promise: "I remember the excitement of getting him to Ascot and then I think he finished very nearly last and he went backwards and backwards.

"And then I think we sent him jumping and he started off with great aplomb and won his first two races.

"But if anything got near him, he panicked and didn’t want to know and dug in his toes and gave up."
