Queen Camilla has humorously revealed King Charles's struggles to take a break during his cancer treatment. At a garden party at Lamb House in Rye on Thursday, she told guests that the King is "getting better."

However, with a touch of humour, she quipped: "Well, he would be if he behaved himself."

The Queen mentioned that Charles was particularly disappointed not to attend because of his admiration for EF Benson, a former resident of the house. During her visit, Camilla enjoyed performances by actors Timothy West and Hayley Mills.

Despite the rainy weather, which she good-naturedly apologised for to those present, Camilla engaged with volunteers in East Sussex. Although King Charles couldn't accompany her, his schedule remains packed with public engagements as he continues his recovery, reports the Express.

Large crowds cheered Camilla and spirits weren't dampened despite the great British weather. As she made her way up a cobbled street into a nearby church, she said: "Sorry it's a bit damp". The Queen was then met by rector of the Church Paul White, who said: "When Queen Elizabeth I visited Rye in 1573, she dubbed this town ‘Royal Rye’. So if you felt that was in your gift today, we will alter the signs before you go." Camilla replied: "Why not?".

The Royal Voluntary Service, which Camilla is patron of - the Mothers’ Union, the Royal National Lifeboat Institution and the Royal British Legion were all represented by volunteers.

One her visit the royal met almost 94-year-old Inga Davie, who was sporting a long-service medal which marks her 45 years of dedication.

The Queen said: "You must be one of our longest standing members. You do such a wonderful job. You literally are the skeleton of the country."

As she made her way down a cobbled lane to Lamb House, an onlooker shouted: "Long live the Queen", to which she replied: "I'm afraid I haven't brought the weather."
