Queen Camilla has decided that she will not have traditional ladies-in-waiting, but will instead be aided by “companions.”

The six so-called “Queen’s Companions” will fulfil an honorary function and assist the Queen at events. The women will not receive a salary but will receive an expense allowance.

The position will also be more casual and informal than the lady-in-waiting position. They will no longer be involved in answering letters or in day-to-day planning.

The six women are Jane von Westenholz, the Marchioness of Lansdowne, Lady Katharine Brooke, Sarah Troughton, Lady Sarah Keswick and Baroness Chisholm.

The ladies-in-waiting who served Queen Elizabeth II will now assist King Charles and will be known as “ladies of the household.”
