Queen Camilla Jokingly Calls Herself ‘Slightly Creaky’ in Rare Personal Message
At least she’s honest
The royal family shared a photo on Instagram featuring the Queen Consort posing with the ballerinas. In the caption, Bowles penned a heartfelt message to the Silver Swans and jokingly referred to herself as “slightly creaky.”
“Today, to mark the International Day of Older Persons, I know that a veritable flock of dancers has swanned into the Royal Academy of Dance for a series of workshops, talks and presentations, joined online by friends from across the world,” she wrote. “As a devoted, if slightly creaky, Silver Swan myself, I very much wanted to send you my warmest wishes for a wonderful day of fellowship and fun, celebrating the huge benefits that ballet has brought to our lives.”
Bowles concluded the note: “To borrow a quote…. Keep Dancing!”
In addition to Bowles’s note, the royal family also provided more details about the Silver Swans. “Royal Academy of Dance developed Silver Swans in 2017 in response to a growing demand for ballet classes for older learners,” the caption continued. “There are many identified benefits of dance, including perceived improvements in quality of life, as well as physiological advantages, such as improved balance.”
We love that Queen Camilla can still poke fun at herself.
