Charles and Camilla show no weakness as they put on opulent France display

King Charles and Queen Camilla are "not showing weakness" on their state visit to France this week.

The couple were seen greeting President Emmanuel Macron and the pair were even guests of honour at a swanky black tie dinner in the Palace of Versailles' Hall of Mirrors. Royal expert Kinsey Schofield reckons the duo are putting on a united front as they act as each other's "support systems".

Speaking to the Daily Star, Schofield said: "I believe that the King and Queen Consort are each other's support systems and there is not weakness in such a display. I think it should give us confidence that there is stability behind palace walls.

"It does strengthen their image… associating with other world leaders, the elegance of a banquet at Versailles, seeing Camilla dripping in couture. This was a fantastic display of elegance and opulence."

Charles and Camilla are visiting Paris this week six months after they were forced to reschedule an earlier trip because of rioting across the Channel. The trip is due to last three days and will also see them make a trip to the southwest city of Bordeaux.

The display of strength comes following a tough few weeks for the royal duo, who recently marked the anniversary of the death of Charles' mother, Queen Elizabeth II.

The nation remembered Her Majesty on September 8, one year after she passed away at Balmoral with the now-King by her side, and on September 19, which was the anniversary of her state funeral.

The visit also risked being overshadowed by recent goings-on in the Sussex household, with Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle having made a highly-anticipated appearance at the Invictus Games' closing ceremony on Saturday (September 16).

Harry recently released his second Netflix docuseries, Heart of Invictus, which followed a group of wounded veterans from a number of different countries as they made their way to last year's games.

And while the latest offering on the streaming platform mostly saw Harry shy away from discussing relations with his estranged royal relatives, the Duke of Sussex did subtly slam his family for not supporting him following the death of his mother, Princess Diana.

"The biggest struggle for me was that no one around me could really help," he said of his traumatic past. "I didn't have that support structure, that network or that expert advice to identify what was actually going on with me."

Tensions between Harry and the Firm are at an all-time high, with the Prince and his ex-Suits star wife having been evicted from Frogmore Cottage earlier this year, the Daily Star previously reported.
