Earlier this month, Queen Elizabeth announced that she wishes for Duchess Camilla to have the title of Queen Consort when Prince Charles takes the throne. It was a declaration that Camilla is truly grateful for, and she touched on the honor during a recent engagement that aims to end domestic violence.

She also declared that she would continue supporting the cause even when Charles becomes King.

According to The Mirror, Woman's Hour and BBC Breakfast shared a video of Camilla chatting with Diana Parkes, a woman whose daughter, Joanna Simpson, was killed by her husband. The two have met before, and Camilla revealed that Parkes was one of the people who inspired her to work with domestic abuse victims.

"Of course it's a great honor (becoming Queen Consort), it couldn't be anything else," she told the crowd. "I'm going to keep up with these causes. You know if I start something like this, I'm not going to give up mid-channel, I'm just going to keep going to try and help the likes of people like Diana ... I hope I should be doing it for a lifetime."

During the event, Camilla discussed the changes that society has to employ to create a safer environment.

"We do need to help culture change. And I think we have to start at the beginning, I think children at school have got to be taught respect," she explained. "We have got to go back to the beginnings and just build up this idea that you have to have respect for human beings, it's lack of respect."

"It's treating women like chattels and people thinking they can get away with it. I'm sure a lot of people do it and think that there's nothing wrong. I don't think (the issue of abuse has) got any better," she noted. "I think the lockdown was terrible because people actually couldn't escape. And you see the numbers have gone up. But on the other hand, I think it's drawn a lot of people's attention to it. I think it's talked about much more now."
