Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall will be present with other royals in the limited balcony row for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Trooping the Color parade.
Some royal observers say today’s limited cast is consistent with a long-standing desire by Prince Charles to slim down the monarchy.
The Queen will be present alongside her 73-year-old heir Charles and his wife Camilla with Prince William, second in line to the throne, with his wife Kate Middleton and their three children; and Charles’ siblings, Princess Anne and Prince Edward, along with their spouses.
The tradition of a balcony appearance began with Queen Victoria, who transformed Buckingham Palace into the official residence of the monarch and home of the royal family in the 19th century.
For Camilla, however, the Queen Consort could be plagued by an ongoing health condition that day.
The condition caused Camilla to be so unwell on the day of her wedding to Prince Charles in 2005 that she couldn’t move, according to Vanity Fair.
Lucia Santa Cruz, the woman who introduced Charles and Camilla, said at the time: “She was really sick, stressed out.
“She literally couldn’t get out of bed.”
Poor Camilla was suffering from sinusitis and only got up when her sister Annabel threatened to wear her wedding outfit.
What is sinusitis?
Sinusitis is swelling of the sinuses, usually caused by an infection.
The condition is said to be common and usually clears up after two to three weeks.
“You can often treat mild sinusitis without seeing a GP,” says the NHS.
“If you have a high temperature or don’t feel well enough to go about your normal activities, try to stay home and avoid socializing until you feel better.”
While Camilla has never spoken out about her battle with sinusitis, she flew to India on a private trip in 2012 to undergo Ayurvedic treatment to eliminate her recurring symptoms.
The Duchess of Cornwall is no stranger to a fan of Eastern medicine and alternative medicine.
During her stay at the Soukhya Holistic Health Center, she was treated by Dr. Issac Mathai checked into Whitefield where she undertook several Ayurvedic and naturopathic treatments such as yoga, mud therapy and hydrotherapy.
She has also been placed on a South Indian vegetarian and organic diet, sources told local newspaper The Deccan Herald.
