'Camilla has won the British public': Sharon Osbourne praises Queen Consort for 'winning the nation's heart'
LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM: British-American television personality Sharon Osbourne praised Queen Consort Camilla for stepping up to her new role, following late Queen Elizabeth II's death and "winning the nation's heart over" as she discussed her relationship with specific members of the royal family.
The 69-year-old star continued to praise King Charles's wife. She told English television personality and journalist Vanessa Jane Feltz, "Camilla has won the British public over with her dignity and the work that she has been doing."
Feltz said, "Sharon let's talk to you about this, I know that you had a close relationship with members of the royal family. I know the King himself sent you a letter when Ozzy wasn't well." She continued, "And you know, you really do feel an empathy and it seems to me a great affection for them, you're very, very fond of Camilla as well, the Queen Consort. So how did you feel watching the funeral today?"
To which Osbourne replied, "I really respect her, I think that she's a very brave woman." She continued, "And I think that she has done incredibly well in the last few years, incredibly well! She has won the public over with her dignity and the work that she does, and I just really respect her"
Even before the Queen passed away, the senior members of the royal family started taking their duties a step ahead. For example, the now-King Charles began stepping in for the Queen at events such as the opening of Parliament and Garter Day while the late Queen announced in a public statement which said that the former Duchess of Cornwell, Camilla would become Queen Consort when King Charles succeeded her.
As per a Daily Mirror, the Queen's decision to give Camilla the title of Queen Consort came during her Platinum Jubilee. She said, "When, in the fullness of time, my son Charles becomes King, I know you will give him and his wife Camilla the same support that you have given me. And it is my sincere wish that, when that time comes, Camilla will be known as Queen Consort as she continues her own loyal service.”
