Queen Consort Camilla has reportedly been in “considerable pain” from breaking her toe before the death of Queen Elizabeth II earlier this month.
A source told The Telegraph on Thursday that although she is in pain, she is “just getting on with it.”
“It is an unfortunate time to say the least but she has been an absolute soldier,” the source added.
Despite the pain, the 75-year-old is busy traveling across the country with her husband, King Charles III, as they meet with officials and mourn the loss of the long-reigning monarch.
She has stood at all official functions as well as made rounds to meet those who have gathered outside the palace while dealing with the ongoing injury. However, he was relieved when he got into the car during the procession at Westminster Hall on Wednesday.

The former Duchess of Cornwall was also able to take the weight off her injured leg when the pair sat on her throne for the first time on Monday at Westminster Hall in London.
Later, the 73-year-old former Prince of Wales addressed 900 members of Parliament and the House of Lords for the first time as King.
“As I stand here before you today, I cannot feel the weight of the history that surrounds us and that reminds us of important parliamentary traditions,” he said in furtherance of Queen Elizabeth II’s legacy of “devotion.” He began his speech before taking the oath. “Duty.”
After a series of public appearances, the two went back to their respective homes, the King in Highgrove, Gloucestershire, while Camilla went to her Wiltshire residence on Monday before getting ready for the late Queen’s funeral.
While Camilla and Charles have stepped up their roles, no royal titles will be given to the new queen’s family and many members of the royal family will have to wait until the mourning period is over to be given their new titles.
Queen Elizabeth II died on 8 September at the age of 96, after royal officials announced that she had been placed under “medical supervision”.
