Rather than reach out with a personal update, the kind-hearted 47-year-old reshared a post from chef Angela Hartnett urgently seeking information about her missing dog.

Tom is Camilla's eldest child from her first marriage to Andrew Parker Bowles. The former couple were married from July 1973 until 1994, when they initiated divorce proceedings after years of separation. Together they share Tom – who is also Prince Charles's godson - and his younger sister, Laura.

"I remain eternally grateful for, and humbled by, the loyalty and affection that you continue to give me," she said at the time.

"And 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."
