4 mins read


Queen Consort Camilla’s hands were spotted shaking on live television as she signed the visitor’s book at the Scottish Parliament. She could be seen firmly gripping the pen as she marked her signature in the book. Both King Charles III and his wife signed the book, described as “important for the archives of the Parliament”.

A portrait of the Queen was seen behind the couple, looking down on them.

The portrait of the late monarch was commissioned by the Scottish Parliament to mark its 10th anniversary.

It is not the first time that Camilla’s shaking hands has prompted concern.

Back in March, royal fans were left concerned after noticing the Queen Consort’s shaky hand at an event for International Women’s Day (IWD).

The signing followed an emotional ceremony in Holyrood, where the Scottish Parliament issued a motion of condolence.

Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon started the motion by telling MSPs and the King: “In an ever-changing and often turbulent world, Her Majesty has been our constant, she has been the anchor of our nation.”

Douglas Ross, the leader of the Scottish Conservative Party, was next to pay tribute.

He said: “We don’t just commemorate the reign of our Queen but also celebrate the life of a woman who many in Scotland knew and loved, who dedicated her life to her country, to duty, and to serving others.”

Less than a year ago, King Charles was at Holyrood for the royal opening of a new term of parliament alongside his late mother.

Charles followed the Holyrood ceremony by returning to St Giles’ Cathedral to hold a vigil for the late monarch.

He was joined by his siblings Princess Anne and Princes Andrew and Edward, as the four of them positioned themselves at each side of the coffin to briefly stand guard.

He previously stood carried out a similar vigil at the funeral of the Queen Mother in 2002.

Following the vigil, the crowd outside loudly applauded Charles, Anne, Andrew, Edward, Camilla and Sophie, Countess of Wessex, as they left St Giles.
