Queen Camilla reportedly enjoyed a festive night out with her grandchildren before Christmas, boogying the night away at the Abba Voyage concert.

Camilla Queen Consort is said to have been "bopping in the aisles" a virtual Abba gig when she took five of her grandchildren to see the musical show.

The wife of the reigning monarch King Charles III (opens in new tab) is understood to have taken some of her young family members out for the evening - to enjoy a virtual concert held at London's Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

There virtual avatars - known in this instance as Abbatars - depicted the legendary band as they would have looked in the 1970s.

According to the Daily Mail (opens in new tab), Camilla went practically unnoticed as she danced the night away to their many hits including the aptly named Dancing Queen.

Camilla has 10 grandchildren (opens in new tab) but given how recognisable the Wales children are and with Archie and Lilibet living in LA,  just the five remaining grandchildren Camilla has from her first marriage were in attendance - Lola and Freddy Parker Bowles, as well as Eliza, Louis and Gus Lopes.

Camilla is a well-known Abba fan and in 2004 she attended a royal gala fundraising performance of Mamma Mia! with Charles who was Prince at the time.

Camilla kept herself busy over the festive period, attending the Royal Family Christmas carol concert and the Christmas Day church service with other members of the royal family who gathered at Sandringham to celebrate - on what marked the first Christmas since the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

And it looks like we could see more of Camilla being the doting grandmother during King Charles III's reign. 

However, while none of her signature moves were caught on camera it suggests she's not afraid to let her hair down in public once in a while.
