Queen Consort Camilla has hosted Queen Rania of Jordan and Crown Princess Mary of Denmark at Clarence House on Monday ahead of a reception at Buckingham Palace this evening.

Camilla, 75, looked effortlessly elegant in a blue dress when appearing in a photograph alongside the two other royal ladies.

Appearing equally sophisticated, Rania, 52, opted for a teal frock with gem encrusted cuffs and matching heels, while Australian-born Mary, 50, looked picture perfect in a monochrome check skirt, paired with a black blouse.

The Queen Consort is hosting a major reception at Buckingham Palace to raise awareness of violence against women and girls; Queen Mathilde of Belgium, Rania and Mary are all due to be present.

The photograph of Rania, Camilla and Mary, who is married to the heir to the Danish throne Crown Prince of Denmark Frederik, was shared to Instagram by the Queen of Jordan.

‘A lovely afternoon with Her Majesty Queen Consort Camilla and Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Mary of Denmark,’ Rania’s caption read.

At Tuesday’s reception, Camilla will make what is expected to be a powerful and personal speech at the event, attended by survivors and their families.

It is being held as part of the United Nations’ 16 days of activism against gender-based violence.

The Countess of Wessex will also be among around 300 attendees, as well as politicians and charity representatives from SafeLives, Women’s Aid and Refuge.

Former Spice Girl Melanie Brown, who was made an MBE for her work with domestic violence charity Women’s Aid, and reality TV star Zara McDermott – who has spoken previously of her efforts to end the scourge of ‘revenge porn’ – are also due to be there.

A source said Camilla will speak about what she has learned from her work in the area of domestic abuse – that survivors want to be heard and believed.

Camilla is expected to speak about prevention and a determination to achieve the goal of ending domestic violence for good.

Last month, in what could be seen as an indication of how important the issue is to Camilla, she used her first solo engagement in her new royal title to meet domestic abuse workers at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.

Some of Camilla’s Queen’s companions – who were announced at the weekend – will appear publicly with her for the first time at the reception.

Buckingham Palace has said the 75-year-old will have six Queen’s companions, not traditional ladies-in-waiting, who are all trusted friends and will support her as she carries out her key official and state duties.
