The Royal family is supporting the visibility of women in male dominated positions in a major way.
While the U.S. is trying to get over a week that feels like the country was set back 50 years, Camilla, The Duchess of Cornwall was accompanied by an all female security team when she recently visited the Middle East.
Prince Charles, The Duchess of Cornwall’s husband is set to be king after his mother Queen Elizabeth, which makes Camellia’s next title, Princess of Consort.
