The event marked 100 years since the signing of the treaty which ended the battle on the Western Front of the great war. It was on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918.
That time was a horrific pool death.
Between July 28, 1914 and November 11, 1918 over 800,000 UK troops lost their lives. It was estimated that 20 million soldiers and civilians were also killed around the world.
Camilla was given the honour to be beside the Queen as Prince Charles took on additional royal duties. Once Charles takes the throne, it is expected that Camilla will take on the title of Queen Consort.
However, many believe she will be granted the title of Queen.
Royal author, Penny Junor writing in ‘The Duchess: The Untold Story’ said:-
“I have little doubt that Charles is so proud of Camilla, and is so grateful for everything she has done for him, that he will insist she gets the full title”.
When Charles and Camilla’s engagement was announced in February of 2005, a royal statement said:-
