This Is Why Duchess Of Cornwall Will Have The Title Of Queen

The Duchess of Cornwall could become the Queen when Prince Charles is crowned King?.

The Duchess of Cornwall has previously said she would not take on the title.

When she married Charles in 2005, Clarence House, the couple’s official residence, announced that she would be known as the Princess Consort in the event of Charles’ ascension to the throne. Her official title will be HRH The Princess Consort, much like Prince Philip is the prince consort to Queen Elizabeth II rather than a king.

“Mrs Parker Bowles will use the title HRH The Duchess of Cornwall after marriage,” Clarence House said during Charles and Camilla’s wedding announcement in 2005. “It is intended that Mrs Parker Bowles should use the title HRH The Princess Consort when the Prince of Wales accedes to The Throne.”

The title of Queen is not an automatic right, but Charles will have the power to make her one. According to royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliam in December, the 69-year-old prince would be likely to give her the title because “every king has had a queen.”

“Although the official line still is that the Duchess of Cornwall will be Princess Consort when Prince Charles ascends the throne, the choice is Charles’ and he will make it within a day of the Queen’s passing,” he told “She is expected to be Queen as every king has had a queen.”

It was also reported last year that Charles had started campaigning for Camilla to become his queen. Patrick Jephson, the former private secretary of the late Diana, Princess of Wales, claimed that Charles’ advisers had crafted a campaign to boost Camilla’s reputation.

According to several polls, the majority of Britain would not accept Camilla as their queen. Apparently, Camilla still can’t shake her reputation as the villainess in the love story between Charles and Diana, his former wife. Camilla was still married to former British Army officer Andrew Parker Bowles when she and Charles started their affair. Charles himself was married to Diana as well.

As Diana’s popularity soared, Camilla’s suffered. Diana’s divorce with Charles in 1996 and her subsequent death in 1997 exacerbated Camilla’s reputation. Many people still think of her as the mistress who broke off Diana’s fairytale romance with Charles.

When Camilla married Charles in 2005, she technically acquired the courtesy title of Princess of Wales. However, she does not use it because of its obvious association with Diana.

    Prince Charles is now in a happy marriage.
    I think he has everything he wanted and now he should have the grace to call it a day and step down on Camilla becoming queen. The people of this country do not want her as their queen.
    If he insists on her becoming queen he will damage the monarchy beyond repair. She is after all an adulteress.

    Princess Diana is Still the people’s Princess and Charles and Camilla did wrong in the eyes of the Lord and the people of England. William should become King and not Charles William is respected more than his father who betrayed Diana our Princess.

    How can someone who has committed adultery become king and head of the church of England? William should be the next king.

    Forget that woman being queen. Charles should step aside and let William become the next king. The thought of her as queen is too much

    Charles has demonstrated through his adultery that he is not fit to ever become king or Head of the Church of England, she is an adulteress and for the same reasoning, not unfit. They should both now go off into the sunset, William should be the next rightful King and Head of the Church with his legitimate and rightful Queen. God save the King.

    Charles was married to a beautiful Queen, the “Queen” of Hearts, Princess Diana, who sadly lost her life so young and left a void that will never be filled. She would have been the perfect Queen. All the time Charles was married, he broke his wedding vows and had an affair with “that” horse face. If the Royal family is to maintain its popularity then when Her Majesty the Queen passes away it must be William that is King. Charles and “horsey” can retire to his estate. Very few in our United Kingdom, will have any time or respect for her and it will give rise to the republican movement. If the Royal family are to maintain their popularity William MUST be the new King.
