Queen of the United Kingdom and 14 other Commonwealth realms Camilla has sparked Parkinson's speculations among fans after her appearance at King Charles III's coronation. Charles and Camilla were officially crowned the King and Queen of the UK, respectively, on Saturday, May 6, 2023. The crowning took place in a lavish ceremony that was attended by several active members of the Royal family.

However, the 75-year-old Queen sparked concerns from netizens about her ailing health when they saw her at the lavish ceremony, with one person saying that they hoped she was okay. The user pointed out that Camilla usually looked happy but seemed "out of character" during the ceremony.

Even though nothing is confirmed at this point, several fans suggested that her health has seemingly been deteriorating for some time. Some people even suggested that the Queen was showing signs of Parkinson's disease. However, it is worth noting that there has been no official news or confirmation that the Queen is suffering from Parkinson's disease and all concerns are based on speculation alone.

Queen Camilla's health has been in question for some time now


After videos of King Charles III's coronation videos were shared on social media, several netizens expressed concerns about the Queen's health. While some shared their concerns about her having Parkinson's disease, others said that she didn't look well to them, a thought that was echoed by many.

Apart from the concerns of Parkinson's disease, which were based on speculations, people also said that they saw the Queen walking differently. They said that she walked as if she was in pain and that during the coronation, she didn't look like her usual self. Others said that they felt bad for her as she had to carry the heavy crown on her head.

However, this is not the first time that Royal fans have raised concerns about the new Queen's health. A year ago, in March 2022, the Queen spoke to actress Emerald Fennel, who plays the role of a younger Camilla in Netflix's The Crown. She was seen having tremors as she spoke to Emerald on International Women's Day at Clarence House. She even joked:

β€œIt is reassuring to know that, if I should fall off my perch at any moment, my fictional alter ego is here to take over - so, Emerald, be prepared!”

This was just weeks after she tested positive for coronavirus.

As mentioned earlier, there has been no confirmation that the Queen has Parkinson's disease or if she is currently unwell. All the concerns that people have are based on speculations from what they saw during the coronation ceremony.

Brief background about Queen Camilla and King Charles' story

Born on July 17, 1947, Camilla is a native of London, United Kingdom. She was born into an aristocratic family and began dating Prince Charles in the 1970s. They moved in the same circles, and various reports imply they met at a party or a polo match, but the specifics of their first encounter have never been established.

However, both Camilla and Charles were married to different people when they reportedly began dating. While then-Prince Charles was married to Diana Spencer, Camilla was married to Andrew Parker Bowles and had two children with him.

According to the British newspaper Times, Andrew Parker Bowles was asked to attend the crowning, which also had their grandchildren in attendance.

People's feelings about the new Queen have changed since the scandal about Charles' affair came out. The now-King and Queen made their relationship public after they married in 2005. It was the first time a British prince ever got married in England without a religious service.

On the coronation day, the new Queen wore an altered version of the crown made for Queen Mary, who wore it in 1911 when her husband George V was crowned.

It is worth noting that while netizens were concerned about the new Queen's health, it is all based on speculation that hasn't been confirmed by any official royal source.
