The public will get a rare glimpse into the life of The Duchess of Cornwall as cameras have been allowed in for an eye-opening documentary. As Camilla prepares for her role as Queen Consort, ITV’s ‘The Real Camilla’ sees cameras follow the Duchess for a year allowing the public to see Camilla at work.
Celebrities including Joanna Lumley and Gillian Anderson were interviewed for the documentary as were some of Camilla’s closest friends.
According to reports, Prince Charles also makes an appearance and tells viewers of his “darling wife” and how Camilla is the “best listener in town.” Cameras were also allowed to follow Camilla and Charles on their various engagements throughout the year.
The documentary makers were allowed into all aspects of Camilla’s working life as they followed her on official engagements for twelve months as well as more informal moments. Cameras captured Camilla helping to decorate the Christmas tree at Clarence House as well as walking her dogs in Scotland.
The Duchess of Cornwall is just the latest member of The Royal Family to appear in a candid documentary. On Monday 16th April, The Queen’s Green Planet aired on ITV and saw Her Majesty The Queen in deep conversation with Sir David Attenborough. The programme saw Her Majesty discuss her commitment to the environment and even earned The Queen Twitter praise for her “sass.”
Recently there has been debate over whether Camilla should receive the title Queen Consort upon Prince Charles’s accession or an adapted title of Princess Consort.
The Duchess of Cornwall documentary will air on ITV on Monday 23rd April.
