The Rifles Awards Dinner took place at the City of London Guildhall

Queen Camilla has been pictured for the first time since the sensational royal book Endgame was released.

Omid Scobie released his highly-anticipated royal book Endgame on Tuesday, which included several negative statements about the Royal Family.

Regarding Queen Camilla, Scobie claimed she "caused further damage to the family during her long-running campaign to rehabilitate her own image".

The author also suggested she is "tolerated by the public but is still not universally accepted".

Despite these new bombshell claims, Camilla appeared to brush off any negativity on Thursday as she stepped out wearing a blue dress at the London Guildhall.

The Queen attended the Rifles Awards Dinner, along with the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester.

One fan posted on X: "They look beautiful! Love Queen Camilla’s dress."

Another social media user added: "The dress is so perfect, she looks so pretty."

The Queen praised The Rifles during the event, one of the British Army’s key infantry regiments, for showcasing their skills “magnificently”.

Camilla, also Colonel-in-Chief of The Rifles, was guest of honour at the regiment’s biennial awards dinner.

In a speech, the Queen said: “The last two years have showcased The Rifles magnificently.

“From the familiar challenges we, as a regiment, so readily succeed at, through to the rare duty of gliding down the marching gears at the Coronation with such panache.”

Camilla added: “Much has happened since we last gathered here at the Guildhall – from a full-scale invasion, the largest seen in Europe since the Second World War, through to the first Coronation in 70 years.

“I note with pride that Riflemen have boldly remained in the vanguard, doubling towards each of these challenges.”

The Queen has personal links to The Rifles through her late father Major Bruce Shand.

Camilla noted that her late father would have wanted her to “commend your loved ones, who make your work possible and keep the home fires burning”.
