‘Not a holiday!’ Camilla responds to Royal Family critics in an extraordinary reaction.
CAMILLA, Duchess of Cornwall, has retaliated against criticism, claiming that recent travels were “not a vacation.”
Camilla and Prince Charles have traveled to Jordan and Egypt, respectively.
The royals, on the other hand, have claimed that, while they appear to be on vacation, they are in fact on business.
“Royal tours aren’t vacations,” Camilla explained.
She did, however, express relief that she still has “snap in her celery” at the age of 74.
Camilla was speaking at the end of a week spent in Jordan and Egypt with Prince Charles.
“We may be dressed up and posed against the pyramids like tourists, but we are not on vacation,” she explained.
She described her royal travels as “working for the country” and “trying to make a difference,” as requested by the government.
After landing at Brize Norton RAF base yesterday night, the Duchess has another engagement today.
This four-day trip to Jordan and Egypt was the first time she had traveled outside of the country since the pandemic began.
“Once you get started, you start to recall you’ve done it before,” Camilla added.
The royal couple was photographed, possibly indicating that a royal christening was in the cards.
Prince Charles was seen in Jordan, where he was seen lifting holy water from a river that is commonly used for baptisms.
Rustom Mkhjian, the director-general of the baptism site, spoke to the Telegraph about the significance of this water.
“It’s pure water blessed from the site where Jesus was baptized,” he explained.
The Director-General stated the water would be used for “future baptisms,” according to the Daily Mail.
And it appears that his prediction came true, as August Brooksbank and Lucas Philip Tindall, the children of Prince Eugenie and Zara Tindall, will be baptised this weekend, according to a royal source.
“Her Majesty is really keen to be there because she realizes how significant this is for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren,” a royal source said.
“It’s likely to be a heart-warming family occasion and a time of true celebration after what has been some trying times for certain royals, including the Queen herself,” the source told the Sun.
“After the huge personal disappointment of missing last Sunday’s Remembrance activities, she is eager to attend such a magnificent occasion.”
