Camilla’s “old bat” joked to the Vogue photographer upon arriving at Clarence House
Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, spoke about Wordle, her fears for her grandchildren and the public scrutiny she faced when she joined the royal family in an interview with Vogue to mark her 75th birthday
Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall is known for her witty comments and funny remarks during public appearances and her Vogue photoshoot debut was no different.
The future Queen Consort sat down with the iconic fashion bible for a play ahead of her 75th birthday.
But when the magazine’s photo supervisor, Jamie Hawkesworth, arrived at Clarence House, she shook his hand and joked, “Sorry you have to photograph an old bat this morning.”
The stunning photos were taken close to Charles and Camilla’s home in London, with one showing them reading a book in the Garden Room, while another sees them in the garden, peeking out from behind a tree.

Vogue writer Giles Hattersley also notes that a snap of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry at their wedding reigns supreme in her photo collection.
During the chat, she also opened up about her marriage to Prince Charles and how they make sure they have quality time together amid their busy schedules, describing them as “ships that pass by in the night.”
She revealed that they always make sure they sit down with a cup of tea at least once a day to discuss what they’re up to. But she says the “nicest” thing they do is sit in different corners of the same room and read while they just “sit and be together.”
The interview comes during a historic year for Camilla, which began with the Queen expressing in her Accession Day message her desire for Camilla to become Queen Consort when Charles ascends the throne.
And last week the Queen made her a Royal Lady of the Garter, meaning she will join Prince William, Charles and Princess Anne in the annual procession at Windsor Castle.
