Prince Charles' wife stepped out solo in London on Thursday, including a stop at community kitchen Nourish Hub. There, she was asked by a member of the public about Queen Elizabeth confirming her wish over the weekend for Camilla to be known as Queen Consort when her husband eventually becomes King.
"I feel very, very honored and very touched," Camilla answered.
Camilla's outing on Thursday came as the couple's office at Clarence House announced that Prince Charles, 73, tested positive for COVID-19 and was self-isolating. His visit to Winchester was canceled with hopes to reschedule for the near future.

The Queen said, "When, in the fullness of time, my son Charles becomes King, I know you will give him and his wife Camilla the same support that you have given me; and it is my sincere wish that, when that time comes, Camilla will be known as Queen Consort as she continues her own loyal service."

In her Accession Day message, Queen Elizabeth poignantly noted that her late husband, Prince Philip, was "a partner willing to carry out the role of consort and unselfishly make the sacrifices that go with it."
It's a role that Camilla, 74, knows well.
"She is a huge support" for Prince Charles, a royal insider tells PEOPLE in this week's issue, adding that the future King can be prone to "Eeyore moments" and Camilla "jollies him up."
