On Thursday’s This Morning, ITV hosts Vernon Kay and Rochelle Humes were back to present the ITV show while Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby take a break for Christmas. Throughout the show, the hosts spoke with a number of guests including royal expert Camilla Tominey and former Channel 5 host Matthew Wright.
However, Camilla left Vernon and Rochelle lost for words as they discussed whether the Queen’s Christmas lunch would go ahead this year.
During the chat, the royal expert revealed what Prince Harry had got his grandmother for Christmas in a previous year.
“They celebrate Christmas more on Christmas Eve following the German tradition,” Camilla began.
“And they give each other all joke presents.”
She continued: “So, one year Princess Anne gave Prince Charles a leather toilet seat cover.
“And then on another year, Prince Harry gave the Queen a shower cap with, “Ain’t life a b***h” on it.”
The hosts and Matthew all burst out laughing at Camilla’s admission.
“I love that,” Rochelle commented in disbelief as Camilla continued: “They all had a bit of a giggle.”
“And on the day of Christmas itself,” she explained. “They obviously go to church.
“We see them, and they change their outfits about 15 times and then they have full turkey and the trimmings.
“And apparently, when they socialise, everyone can only go to bed when the Queen has decided she is going to bed.
“Which I think that is the way it should be. The 95-year-old of the family who dictates when bedtime is.”
Camilla’s Prince Harry revelation comes after it was reported that his wife, Meghan Markle bought the Queen a singing hamster before the duo got married.
The 95-year-old monarch is reported to have said: “It can keep my dogs’ company.”
Her Majesty may appear in public for the first time since early autumn this Christmas, after receiving the go-ahead from her doctors.
The 95-year-old monarch has either been resting or undertaking only “light” desk duties following a health scare earlier this year.
It has also since been reported that the Queen has cancelled her traditional family Christmas lunch next week due to the surge of COVID-19 cases.
The event is usually held at Buckingham Palace, and royals are often pictured driving to the event with their families in tow.
But this year the Queen has reportedly cancelled the annual family get together.
A source told Reuters: “The pre-Christmas family lunch will not be going ahead.
“The decision is a precautionary one as it is felt to put too many people’s Christmas arrangements at risk if it went ahead.”
This Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV.
