King Charles III sets the record straight about who is in charge with his comment about his wife, Queen Camilla, during a walk on Easter Sunday.

While greeting the public outside Windsor Castle for Easter Service on Sunday, the King, who had made his first public appearance since being diagnosed with cancer last month, chatted with the public. One well-wisher told Charles, “Happy Easter, Your Majesty. Never give in; keep going strong.” The King jokingly replied, “I just obey my instructions,” while glancing over at his wife.

The comment seems to be in reply to Camilla’s trip to Northern Ireland last month. During her surprise two-day solo trip, Camilla visited a few family-run shops, meeting the business owners and staff who provided her with food and produce to take home to the King. At one of the shops, Camilla responded to a well-wisher, Brenda Robb’s, concern for Charles’s health, saying: ‘He’s doing very well. He was very disappointed he couldn’t come.” Camilla said she tries “to keep [Charles] in order,” responding to a quip about men “not being the best patients.”

The Easter celebration seemed to confirm for the public that Charles is on the right path to recovery as he undergoes treatment for his cancer. However, this didn’t stop members of the public from sending the best wishes to the king, asking him to, “Please hurry up and get well soon.”

According to Hello!, Anne Daley, a royal fan who was waving her Welsh national flag during Charles’s and Camilla’s walk, told the King to get better soon and to pass on a similar message to the Princess of Wales, who did not attend Easter Service this year. The Prince and Princess of Wales spent their Easter at Sandringham with their three children as Kate Middleton undergoes chemotherapy.

However, Daley confused the King when she told him that “Camilla is 17 [years old] now.” Daley explained that Camilla is her dog, a King Charles Cavalier, that she named after Charles’s wife. Charles jokes that Daley will “need a new one.”

Another woman wrapped in a Union flag gave the King a homemade get-well-soon card. Charles responded: “Thank you very much, that’s very kind. Did you make it?” referencing the card.

The Easter gathering saw fewer members of the royal family compared to the previous year. Charles and Camilla led the party by attending the Easter Matins Service at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle. The Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh, along with their 16-year-old son James, Earl of Wessex; Princess Anne and her husband Timothy Laurence; and Prince Andrew and his ex-wife Sarah, Duchess of York, joined the couple.

The three women in the monarch’s life wore green this Easter, a color traditionally associated with nature, spring, and new life. The royal women also opted to wear green for a couple of years when they paid tribute to the late Prince Philip at a thanksgiving service in his honor. The color is also meaningful to the Princess of Wales, who often wears green for symbolic reasons.
