While King Charles awaits treatment for an enlarged prostate, Queen Camilla carried out her regal duties on Thursday.
The Queen reportedly inaugurated a new “Safe Space” at the Aberdeen Art Gallery, where highly trained personnel will offer assistance and support to anyone who are experiencing domestic abuse themselves or who have reason to believe that someone they know may be a victim.
Employees at the Gallery’s new Safe Space will be specially trained to address domestic abuse and mental health issues.
It will be a place where people may go to ask for assistance or just to think back and recollect things.
The Queen met the crew who have been trained to gain the venue’s accreditation as a “Safe Space” while she was in the “Art of Empowerment” Gallery.
As the Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla was appointed Patron of SafeLives, a UK organization, following the country’s first lockdown in 2020. She was in favour of the Reach In initiative, which encouraged communities to’reach in’ to abuse victims during that trying period. It’s still one of SafeLives’ most popular ads.
Camilla met with SafeLives Scotland representatives during the tour, and they talked about their personal experiences.
