‘Terrible shock for Queen Camilla’

Former BBC royal correspondent Jennie Bond has been talking to Sky News about the King’s cancer battle.

She said it would have come as ‘terrible shock’ to Queen Camilla.

A terrible shock for him and I think an even greater shock for Camilla. I do feel for Camilla because he is her rock and vice versa and all the time he spent in hospital when she was there poppingi nevery five minutes showed just how much they love each other and feel a bit lost without each other.

The Mail’s Sarah Vine has sent her best wishes to the King while saying ‘this comes as an unwelcome shock, not just for the nation, still very much in mourning after the death of his mother, but also for the Royal Family itself’.
