He put an end to royal traditions! She lifted her bridesmaid position and hired 6 of her friends! Remarkable Princess Charlotte detail.
Consort Queen Camilla, wife of King Charles III of England, is breaking a tradition by removing the bridesmaid position at Buckingham Palace.
The bridesmaids, who played the roles of escort, counselor and secretary, played an important role in the royal family, accompanying Charles' mother, Queen Elizabeth II, and her sister, Princess Margaret, on official duties and on tours abroad. However, Camilla changed the definition of bridesmaids to "Queen's companions" and appointed 6 of her close friends to this role. It has been reported that the accompanying persons will be given a symbolic salary.

Camilla's escorts will reportedly be informal in their roles and, unlike bridesmaids, will not be involved in tasks such as responding to letters or scheduling programmes. A royal source said, “The Consort Queen certainly didn't want or need any bridesmaids. The Queen's escorts will have a different role. They are there to provide support and companionship to His Majesty,” she said. (Those who become queens because of their spouse are called consort queens).
