Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, 73, visited an inner-city stable and boxing club in Briston South London on Wednesday. The Clarence House Twitter account posted about the Duchess’s latest visits which received positive feedback from fans.
Clarence House tweeted: “The Duchess of Cornwall is visiting @EbonyHorseClub in Brixton, London, to meet young riders and horses and hear about how the club has supported the local community throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Although young people could not visit @EbonyHorseClub during lockdown, the charity continued to support the community by guiding families on where to get advice and arranging weekly video calls which allowed participants to virtually visit competition venues.
“They even became a hub for the National Schools Breakfast Club and distributed essential provisions for 80 local children per week, every Thursday.”
Clarence House shared clips of Camilla meeting horses and volunteers at the Ebony Horse Club to the delight of fans.

Will Camilla be Queen?
The question of whether Camilla will be Queen Consort when Charles takes the throne is cause for speculation.
While Clarence House maintains Camilla will be known as Princess Consort and not Queen when Charles is king, the title she takes will ultimately be decided by Charles.
In response to the question ‘Will Camilla become Queen Camilla?’, University College London’s Constitution Unit states: “Under common law the spouse of a King automatically becomes Queen. But there are two possible reasons why Camilla might not assume the title.
“The first is the argument that Camilla cannot become Queen because her 2005 civil marriage to Prince Charles was not valid.
“The argument runs as follows: because the Marriage Acts from 1753 have explicitly excepted royal marriages from their provisions, the only valid marriage which a member of the royal family could contract in England was a religious marriage in the Church of England.
“The Lord Chancellor in 2005 defended the validity of the Prince’s civil marriage, as did the Registrar General. But if Camilla became Queen, it might provoke further legal challenges.
“The second possible reason is public opinion. In deference to public opinion, Camilla has not assumed the title Princess of Wales.
“Prince Charles will no doubt have regard to public opinion at the time of his accession, in deciding whether Camilla should become Queen; and he may also want to seek the advice of the government of the day.
“The fallback position is that Camilla would become Princess Consort as announced at the time of their marriage.”
