After having officiated the first gala banquet since the proclamation of Charles III and Camilla as kings after the death of Elizabeth II, the queen consort launches a decision in line with the idea of modernizing the monarchy.
As reported by the British media BBC, Camilla will put an end to the tradition of having bridesmaids, a practice that dates back to the Middle Ages. In her place, the queen consort will be helped by the “queen’s companions.”

Thus, in addition to seeking to modernize the position, the women who occupy the role will attend less regularly than the function previously required. Honorary positions involve assisting the Queen Consort at public events.
In addition, the role that the trusted environment of the Queen Consort will fulfill will be simplified: a more casual and informal position, which translates into support for Camilla in unofficial commitments and without day-to-day planning.
According to British media, the end of the role of bridesmaid ends with a characteristic linked to the monarchy that dates back to the Middle Ages.
The “queen’s companions” will not receive a salary, but their expenses will be covered
The symbolic shift towards modernizing the monarchy will be implemented next week, when Camilla hosts a reception for activists against domestic violence and violence against women.
According to the BBC, the list of companions includes a list of her longtime personal friends: the Marchioness of Lansdowne, Jane von Westenholz, lady Katharine Brooke; Sarah Troughton; lady Sarah Keswick and the baroness Chisholm.
The Queen Consort, 75, also appointed Major Ollie Plunket as his assistant, who acts as a personal assistant.
For their part, the former bridesmaids who served the late Queen Elizabeth II will now help King Charles host events at Buckingham Palace and will be known as “ladies of the house.”
