Camilla begins to tackle social issues as Queen

This was the Queen Consort's first speech aimed at raising awareness of the issue since the death of Queen Elizabeth II in September. 

Palace sources have assured that it is an issue Camilla is "passionate" about. She also believes it's important to remember the women who have lost their lives to domestic violence.

Camilla noted that, during their lives, at least one in three women are victims of domestic violence. 

This is likely to be the first of many efforts by the Queen Consort to combat gender-based violence.
