The post came hours after the palace shared a video of Camilla engaging in a video call with renowned ballerina Dame Darcey Bussell and former newsreader Angela Rippon to discuss the Silver Swans programme, which designs ballet tutorials aimed at over 55-year-olds.

While Rippon is an ambassador for the Silver Swans programme, Dame is the president of the Royal Academy of Dance, which manages the programme. The caption of the video call revealed that Camilla is to become the patron of the Royal Academy of Dance, a role in which she will join her mother-in-law Queen Elizabeth II who has been the royal patron of the organisation since 1953.

In the video call, Camilla revealed that she has been taking ballet lessons for over 18 months, and starts her day "with a bit of Silver Swans and a bit of pilates and a lot walking." The 72-year-old also shared that her husband, the heir apparent, is a workaholic who spends most of his time working from home even though he battled with COVID-19 illness just a few weeks ago.
