King Charles and Queen Camilla have finally been crowned, to the delight of thousands of Londoners. It was a day no one will ever forget, especially Prince George, who served as Page of Honour at the wedding, along with some of Camilla’s offspring, including twins Gus and Louis.
However, Camilla’s grandson Gus was apparently engaged in a serious accident while on vacation, which could have affected some aspects of the event.
This weekend, King Charles and Queen Camilla were crowned at Westminster Abbey.
They arrived at Westminster from Buckingham Palace on Saturday, in what is known as “The King’s Procession.”
Gus was unable to use his right arm after breaking it while on vacation, according to multiple media sites.
As a result, he had to perform his job with only one arm.
“‘Gus fractured his arm in a bike accident while on vacation,’ says a family acquaintance. ‘The cast has been removed, but he needs it in a sling for the big day,’ Eden wrote for the Daily Mail.
“Although this is far from ideal, Gus has the consoling benefit of being completely at ease with his step-grandfather.” Gus and Louis formed a friendship when they were very little.”
“Should Gus seek inspiration for remaining steady on parade on Saturday, he need only think of his great-grandfather, Camilla’s father, Bruce Shand, who was awarded two Military Crosses as well as wounded during his wartime service,” Richard Eden wrote. Brigadier Andrew Parker Bowles, who commanded the Blues and Royals, will be present at the Abbey to encourage Gus.”
Camilla’s family has had longstanding ties with the Royal Family. However, it appears that the two families have just recently spent time together, at least in terms of Charles and Camilla’s respective grandkids.
Queen Elizabeth had a huge family (four children, eight grandchildren, and twelve great-grandchildren), but Camilla’s family is also large, although not receiving as much attention.
