The reign of Carlos III will face some unusual challenges. The 73-year-old monarch lives in a very different United Kingdom from the one Elizabeth II knew when she became queen in 1952.
When Elizabeth II ascended the throne, the prime minister was the unmistakable leader Winston Churchill and the UN was not even ten years old. Instead, the United Kingdom of Carlos III has officially left the European Union and its prime minister, Liz Truss, comes to office after the controversial and criticized management of Boris Johnson.
Camila, a book-loving queen consort
Carlos III has become king in the company of his wife Camila, who has been appointed as queen consort. Camilla of Edinburgh was born in 1947 under the name Camilla Rosemary Shand.
She married the then Prince Charles in 2005, under the critical gaze of the English, who were not willing to forget the figure of Princess Diana. After her union, the second wife of the then heir to the throne acquired the name of Camilla of Cornwall, a title that she abandoned when she was named queen consort and Duchess of Edinburgh.
Camila began her education at Drumbells College, located in her native Sussex. She would later enter Queen’s Gate College, located in Kensington and founded in 1891. In this school took French classes with renowned novelist Penelope Fitzgeraldwho was famous for winning the prestigious Booker Prize.
During his adolescence, studied in Switzerland at a boarding school exclusive for upper class women, in the commune of Tolochenaz. After graduating, studied French Literature for six months at the University of London in Paris.
Throughout her life, Camilla from Edinburgh has been a great promoter of reading and literacy.
As a philanthropist, she has financed literary competitions, as well as initiatives focused on the promotion of reading, among which the Oxfam association bookstores and Reading Room stand out, a campaign to “free” books in telephone booths in the United Kingdom.
In addition, the queen consort continually recommends books from her website. Some of the books she has recently recommended include Atonement by Ian McEwan, The Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante, and Hamnet by Maggie O’Farrell.
