Queen Elizabeth arrived at the Windsor Castle for her 90th Birthday in a horse-drawn carriage, accompanied by Prince Philip. As soon as she stepped out of the carriage she was met by her son Prince Charles who bowed as she walked towards him. In the background, behind Charles waited Charle’s wife Camilla.
Charles approached the Queen and grabbed her hand and then kissed it. The Queen looked very happy to see her son as you can see by her genuine smile with raised cheeks, squinted eyes and display of teeth showing.
Then Charles kissed his mother on the Cheek and as he did this she appeared as though she too were reciprocating in terms of giving a kiss as her lips looked pursed. Then Camilla walked up to the Queen and the Queen’s facial expression changed abruptly.
The Queen looks down and completely ignores Camilla.
It is as though the Queen couldn’t wait to get away from Camilla as Camilla tries to approach her. She appeared cold and completely ignored Camilla as she walked past her.
The Queen appears to have a rather tense look around Camilla. In fact it looks as though she was gritting her teeth at having to be in Camilla’s presence. Camilla stared at the Queen and smiled in hopes of some recognition or acknowledgement, but the Queen continued to ignore Camilla.
