Queen Camilla is reportedly set to take an overseas holiday from Monday after a busy period performing duties on behalf of the King

A royal biographer believes King Charles "insisted" that Queen Camilla went on holiday as she "needs a break" from her royal duties.

Queen Camilla has stepped up and taken on more royal roles following the King's cancer diagnosis but according to Angela Levin, the monarch is burnt out and Charles is keen for her to take a break.

Camilla will be back in action on March 11 to represent King Charles at the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey. Camilla is said to be buoyed by the public's reaction to her leading the Royal Family over the last few weeks.

Angela Levin told GB News: "My view is that King Charles insisted that she has a break.

"She is working non-stop, she has done so much in this last week. She has also been there for him all the time. I think that it is a sign that he has improved quite well.

"He will say, 'why don't you take a break?' Some people say that she might be spending it with her children and with Charles.

"Others think that she might be going to India, even though she hates flying, because there is a marvellous spa there and the can give her the one over in two days and she will come back a new woman.

"It is very good, she has been there before and she absolutely loves it."

A royal source told The Times: "Although she was not expecting to find herself in the position of leading the family, the Queen is absolutely prepared to do whatever needs to be done for the institution.

"She has found reserves of energy that even she didn't think she had, and the estimation of her by those inside the palace has soared as she has put her shoulder to the wheel."


Last month, Buckingham Palace made the announcement that the King had been diagnosed with a form of cancer and Charles has since been undergoing treatment.

Queen Camilla has taken over a lot of his duties while "taking care" of her husband.

Prince William is expected to step up while the Queen is away, having taken a short break himself to take care of his wife and children.

The Princess of Wales is recovering from a planned abdominal procedure and is not expected to return to royal duties until after Easter.

The Princess of Wales had the operation in January and spent two weeks in the London Clinic following the procedure.

Kate has now returned to her Windsor home where she is continuing her recovery.
