Camilla was ever the beaming beauty on Wednesday as she was pictured departing Westminster Abbey following a rehearsal for the King's coronation on Saturday.

The Queen Consort was joined by her 13-year-old twin grandsons, Gus and Louis lopes, who arrived for the event this week and will serve as her Pages of Honour during the ceremony.

Pictured heading away in a car, Camilla grinned from ear to ear while waving out of the open window, with the teenagers sat next to their grandmother.

With just days to go before the real thing, the rehearsal was also attended by King Charles, the Prince and Princess of Wales, and their children.

The royal family were greeted by the Dean of Westminster and shown inside the gothic church, where Charles and Camilla will be anointed and crowned on Saturday in front of 2,300 guests and a global audience of millions.

Prince George attended alongside his younger siblings Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, with the eldest of William and Kate's children, who is second in the line of succession, expected to be tasked with holding the train of Charles’ regal robes.

During the ceremony, next in line William will kneel before his father and vow to be his “liege man of life and limb” in the only homage of royal blood of the ceremony.

Camilla's grandchildren, whose parents are her daughter Laura Lopes (nee Parker Bowles) and husband Harry Lopes, were seen arriving to Buckingham Palace on Tuesday ahead of the weekend celebrations, joined by her sister Annabel Elliot.

Freddy Parker Bowls, 13, another of Camilla’s grandsons, and her great-nephew, Arthur Elliot, 11, will complete her Pages Of Honour line-up.

Ahead of the big day, several changes to the proceedings have been announced, as King Charles and Queen Camilla move to modernise the monarchy and dispense with some of the pomp and pageantry previously associated with the ceremony.

One change for Camilla in particularly, is that she will be anointed in full public view in a break with tradition, and will be presented with a ring which “marries” her as consort to the King.

Camilla will be consecrated with holy oil without being hidden under a canopy, in contrast to the late Queen Mother’s coronation.

With preparation in full swing, Charles and Camilla were seen meeting Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer at a reception with MPs, peers and staff at Westminster Hall on Tuesday.
