Why Do King Charles And His Wife Camilla Sleep Separately?

King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla spend time apart, even though they share the same throne. According to sources close to the royal couple, the two do not sleep together. Here's the real why!

After the death of Queen Elizabeth II, King Charles III reportedly decided to take a break, mainly because all the excitement of the last few days had taken its toll on him physically and mentally, according to the British press.

The King has now retired to his Highgrove mansion, but without his wife, Camilla, who has preferred to spend her time in the home she has owned since her divorce from her first husband, Andrew Parker Bowles.

Why Do King Charles And Camilla Sleep Separately?

According to a source close to the royal couple, Queen Consort Camilla is said to have her own room in the Highgrove mansion but does not usually spend time there, but at Ray Mill, where she has all her family close by.

Royal expert Joshua Rom claimed that King Charles and his wife Camilla have hectic schedules, especially for their age, so they prefer to relax separately. What's more, the Queen Consort feels safe at Ray Mill, where she can go to the supermarket without causing any particular interest from the locals.

Another source close to the two explained to The Post that they do not share the same bed because of royal tradition. In many cases, this would have led to separation, but Charles and Camilla have proven that their relationship works equally well even in such situations.

Queen Camilla caused a big sensation when she wore the iconic Coronation Necklace, as she and King Charles III made their way to Westminster Abbey on Saturday for their historic coronation.

The Coronation Necklace - History

The Coronation Necklace, originally created by Garrard for Queen Victoria, has subsequently been worn by every queen for every coronation, most recently for the late Queen Elizabeth II in 1953.

The magnificent Coronation Necklace is composed of a staggering 22.48-carat pendant known as the Lahore Diamond and 25 graduated dazzling diamonds gathered from ceremonial sword hilts and antique garter badges.

The Lahore diamond was obtained from the Kings of Punjab in 1849 when Punjab was incorporated into the Indian Raj and was given to Queen Victoria in 1851, according to somethingaboutrock.com.

Prior to 1849, when British colonists took control of the Punjab region of what is now Pakistan, the stone was a part of the Lahore Treasure and was "presented to Queen Victoria in 1851," according to the Royal Collection.

When Queen Victoria's Uncle Ernst Augustus was elected Elector of Hannover in 1837 and the crowns of Great Britain and Hannover disagreed over Queen Charlotte's jewelry, Queen Victoria ordered the Coronation Necklace and a set of earrings.

The Coronation Earrings, which Garrard created in the same period, is a pair of diamond pendant earrings. The cushion studs used to create the earrings are suspended from which two pear-shaped diamonds are set.

A favorite of Queen Victoria's, the Coronation Necklace can be seen on her in photographs taken in celebration of her Diamond Jubilee.

The first person to wear the Coronation Necklace at a coronation ceremony was Queen Alexandra, the consort of King Edward VII, in 1902, followed by Queen Mary in 1911.

In 1937, the Coronation Necklace was also worn by Queen Mother Elizabeth.

The New King Charles III
In a ceremony that dates back 1,000 years, King Charles III was crowned on Saturday at Westminster Abbey in London.

It is the biggest ceremonial event in Britain for seven decades, with heads of state and dignitaries from around the world turning out to attend, while tens of thousands of people lined the streets to witness the historic moment.

After the death of Queen Elizabeth last September, Prince Charles succeeded his mother to the English throne. He is the oldest British monarch to have the 360-year-old St Edward's crown placed on his head.

King Charles arrived at Westminster Abbey with his second wife Camilla, who was crowned queen during the two-hour ceremony. The pair arrived at the ceremony in a carriage accompanied by knights wearing glittering breastplates and plumed helmets.

The King received the Coronation Ring, also known as the Sovereign's Ring, during the service. The jewel, which is made of rubies and diamonds, is meant to represent his love and dedication for the Commonwealth and the people he is pledging, by God's will, to serve for the rest of his life. The King also wore his distinctive pinky ring for the event.

Bruce Oldfield, whose work Camilla has sported on numerous occasions, created the coronation gown for the monarch. Eliot Zed, a British designer, created her shoes for her using the same silk fabric as the outfit worn by Queen Camilla.
