Examples of consort in a Sentence

  1. Luis Buñuel:

    If alcohol is queen, then tobacco is her consort. It's a fond companion for all occasions, a loyal friend through fair weather and foul. People smoke to celebrate a happy moment, or to hide a bitter regret. Whether you're alone or with friends, it's a joy for all the senses. What lovelier sight is there than that double row of white cigarettes, lined up like soldiers on parade and wrapped in silver paper? I love to touch the pack in my pocket, open it, savor the feel of the cigarette between my fingers, the paper on my lips, the taste of tobacco on my tongue. I love to watch the flame spurt up, love to watch it come closer and closer, filling me with its warmth.

  2. The Queen:

    I would like to express my thanks to you all for your support. I remain eternally grateful for, and humbled by, the loyalty and affection that you continue to give me, and when, in the fullness of time, Prince Charles becomes King, I know you will give Prince Charles and Prince Charles 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.

  3. Queen Elizabeth II:

    I am fortunate to have had the steadfast and loving support of my family, i was blessed that, in Prince Philip, I had a partner willing to carry out the role of consort and unselfishly make the sacrifices that go with it. It is a role I saw my own mother perform during my father’s reign.
