King Charles and Queen Consort attend funeral of Camilla's brother-in-law of over 50 years

King Charles and the Queen Consort were among guests who flocked to the streets of Dorset today to pay their respects to Camilla’s brother-in-law Simon Elliot.

The businessman was married to the royal’s younger sister Annabel for over 50 years and passed away at the age of 82 earlier this month.

Police sealed off all roads to the church during the service to allow Simon’s coffin to be driven through the small village.

Following the service, guests were seen making their way to the local pub The White Horse Inn.

Although King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla were not pictured arriving at the funeral, they are understood to have attended the service in a show of support to his widow Annabel.

The church in Stourpaine is where funerals of the Queen Consort’s brother, Mark Shand, and her father Major Bruce Shand, had previously been held. 

The Queen Consort was so close to her brother-in-law that she invited him and her sister, Annabel, to join her and Charles on their honeymoon in Scotland.

Leading the mourners were Elliot’s three children, former Conservative Party co-chairman Ben Elliot and his sisters, Alice and Catherine.
