Being in lockdown because of the global health crisis has drastically changed people, including the royal family. Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, is the one who has made the most changes.
Gone are the fancy dresses and extraordinary hats, since the coronavirus pandemic rattled the world, Prince Charles‘s wife has appeared in virtual events in jeans, shirts, and blazers.
Camilla Parker Bowles has decided to tone down her fashion, and according to royal experts, she has also transformed the way she conducts herself.
Many are applauding Camilla for being kinder and more accessible in her exchanges with British citizens, hospital staff members, and heads of charitable organizations. And she appears genuinely happier in her latest videos filmed for social media.
Royal expert Katie Nicholl told Vanity Fair this about the new Camilla: “Dressed down in her favorite jeans and comfy flat pumps, in her appearances from quarantine, the duchess has come across as accessible and relatable. From her down-to-earth video messages to her efforts to shine the spotlight on causes close to her heart to leading the national tributes on V-E Day, Camilla has been center stage, and she never looked happier.”
The royal watcher went on to say: “We have seen her in a much more informal setting, and that has given people a chance to get to know her a little better. Both she and the prince have shown themselves to be very comfortable operating this way — they have allowed the public into their home in a way that has never happened before.”
She also added: “The prince and duchess were in lockdown like everyone else and couldn’t be seen in person, so they wanted to find another way to connect with people. They hadn’t done many social media messages before, but they quickly realized this was the way forward and a means of being visible and immediately connecting with people, which is what they always wanted to do.”
Many royal fans are rejoicing to see a different Camilla — one who has a great sense of humor and appears more dedicated and relatable than ever. In contrast, others slam her and bring up Princess Diana‘s name.
Camilla was praised by this royal fan: “She’s so open and genuine. The real thing, lovely to hear from her.”
This person opted to criticize Camila: “I can not think the English people have to call the Duchess of Cornwall, Queen of England!!!!! It will be a betrayal of the Royal Family, especially to the sons of Princess Diana and little Princesses, George, Charlotte, and Louis.😭😭😭😥😥”
Camilla has become one of the more popular figures of the monarchy.
