After travelling around Europe with her husband Prince Charles, Camilla the Duchess of Cornwall looks to be continuing her holiday adventures solo.

Camilla has been soaking up the last of European summer as she sails around the coast of Sardinia on a luxury yacht with friends.

The 71-year-old, who attends over 200 official royal events each year, has reportedly been spotted in an array of colourful swimsuits lying on sunbeds and enjoying a little R ‘n R – but according to New Idea, the palace isn’t too pleased about it.

Prince Charles is believed to have returned to his royal duties and the report claims that the Queen isn’t impressed that the Duchess hasn’t done the same.

“The Queen is positively livid over Camilla’s holiday,” an unnamed palace source revealed to New Idea. 

“The royals have had their annual summer holiday and now it’s time for them to get back to work – but instead, Camilla is gallivanting around Europe in her swimsuit.”

“The whole thing has really set the Queen off… she couldn’t be more angry,” the source recalled.

It’s not the first time Camilla has been criticised for not doing any work – Prince Charles’ former deputy private secretary Mark Bolland has previously hinted that staff gave her a new nickname of ‘Duchess of Dolittle’.

It seems like a particularly unfair choice of moniker considering that in 2016 she attended more official royal events than Prince William, Kate Middleton and Prince Harry.

Meanwhile, Camilla is believed to be planning a lavish party for her husband on October 25th to celebrate Charles turning seventy. 

And by the sounds of it, she’ll be perfectly tanned for the occasion.
