    Queen Consort Camilla has a secret system to keep King Charles on track at public events – tugging on his coat.

    She also gives His Majesty a nudge in his back if he is droning on too much at engagements.

    The tactics have been revealed by their best pal and telly star Gyles Brandreth.

    He revealed: “When he gets tetchy – because the pen doesn’t work, as it didn’t when he was signing a document at Hillsborough Castle in County Down – she soothes him, putting out a hand and kneading him gently in the small of his back.

    “When he is running late or talking too much, she tugs discreetly at the back of his jacket – sometimes quite vigorously.”

    Celebrity Gogglebox star Gyles, 74, said in his new book Elizabeth, about our late Queen, that Camilla knows how to keep King Charles in line.

    He added: “She is fundamental to the architecture of his life.

    “She is his good companion and best friend and, now that his children have left home, she is the only person in the entire world with whom he can be completely free and open.

    “Camilla is his strength and stay, the ally who knows him better than anyone and, now that he’s King, the only person who can still treat him as an equal.

    “I have watched them at close quarters – at Highgrove, before they were married and since, at Clarence House, at Buckingham Palace.

    “He adores her, clearly. In small-talk, he mentions ‘my darling wife’ in almost every sentence.

    “She looks at him with a kindly eye, amused and aware of his foibles."

    Gyles says that, like Prince Philip, Camilla has "accepted her destiny".

    "She did not seek it. She has never wanted a place centre stage," he continued.

    “Prince Philip always knew he was the support act not the star attraction.

    “In more than 70 years as the Queen’s consort, he never over-reached himself.

    “He always made sure he walked one step behind Her Majesty.

    “Watch closely and you will see Camilla does exactly the same.”
