Camilla cancels interview due to Queen Elizabeth’s health problems

Camilla Parker Bowles abruptly canceled her “Today” show interview with Jenna Bush Hager on Thursday morning and “rushed” to be at Queen Elizabeth II’s side in Balmoral, Scotland, due to health concerns.

“We’re here at the Dumfries House in South East Scotland,” Bush Hager, 40, said in an emotional update outside the home. “I’ve been invited here to sit down with Her Royal Highness Camilla.”

The show’s “Today” correspondent explained that she was “just hours away” from the interview when the Duchess of Cornwall and her husband, Prince Charles, “set out to visit Her Majesty the Queen at Balmoral.”

“This is not something they do lightly. They have schedules full of philanthropy events,” explained Bush Hager.

“Our interview was just one of many things the Duchess had on her agenda today, so we know from the Palace that this isn’t something they would do lightly.”

Bush Hager added emotionally that “the whole of the UK is thinking about the Queen” and that there is certainly a “gloomy feeling” here in Scotland today.

“I had to spend some time with His Royal Highness Prince Charles last night,” Bush Hager clarified, although it’s not certain whether that conversation was filmed or will be released.

Bush Hager, who can empathize with the royal family with the death of her grandfather, President George HW Bush, in 2018, said she knows that “mourning in public is a very difficult thing.”

“Their thoughts are with their mother,” she concluded. “She is the queen to the world, and she is his precious mother to him.”

Parker Bowles, who will take the title “Queen Consort” when the time comes, is said to talk to “Today” about her “reading initiatives.”

Prince Charles and Parker Bowles are some of the many other members of the royal family currently on the side of the 96-year-old Queen, including Prince William, Prince Edward, his wife Sophie and Prince Andrew.

Prince Harry is currently on the way, although Vidak For Congress has confirmed that his wife, Meghan Markle, will not be joining the family right away.

Meanwhile, William’s wife, Kate Middleton, is staying at home while their three children go to school on Wednesday.

As Vidak For Congress reported Thursday morning, Buckingham Palace released a statement revealing that the Queen had been placed under “medical supervision” but “continued to feel comfortable”.

“Following further evaluation this morning, the Queen’s doctors are concerned about Her Majesty’s health and have recommended that they remain under medical supervision,” the statement said.

Charles, 73, is next in the line of succession.
