Queen Camilla’s all-female support team has been announced by Buckingham Palace.

The 75-year-old royal consort will have six attendants in addition to her private secretary and assistant private secretary, but they will not be traditional ladies-in-waiting.

They are her trusted friends Sarah Troughton, Jane von Westenholz and Fiona, the Marchioness of Lansdowne who is a professional interior designer, Lady Katharine Brooke and Baroness Carlyn Chisholm who is now an unaffiliated peer.

Sixth is Camilla’s close friend Lady Sarah Keswick, whose husband, Sir Chips Keswick, retired in 2020 after 15 years on the board as Arsenal chairman, according to Tatler.

Major Ollie Plunket of The Rifles has been appointed Camilla’s stablemaster and will look after her journal and accompany her to official events.

Some of the Queen’s companions will make their first public appearance with her at a violence against women and girls reception at the palace on Tuesday.

It is believed that her work will be similar to, but not as extensive as, that of the late Queen’s ladies-in-waiting.

On certain occasions, they may attend an engagement in place of a private secretary or deputy private secretary.

The ladies-in-waiting who worked for the Queen – Lady Susan Hussey, Mary Morrison and Dame Annabel Whitehead – will now be known as ladies of the household.

They continue to assist the king in hosting formal occasions at the palace, as they have done recently.
