So, it’s no wonder that when the fact of their affair became public, Camilla had to withstand a considerable wave of hatred. It took the public a long time to come to terms with the fact that in 2005 the future king of the United Kingdom married her. The question of a woman’s title has turned into a real headache for most.
At the time, royal family sources said that Camilla herself did not want to be known as Queen Consort, even though that is exactly what she is now – the spouse of the reigning king.
The woman wanted to be given the title of Princess Consort (a title that had never existed before in the history of the United Kingdom) when the day inevitably came when her husband would become King of the United Kingdom.
Not only is her courage to not be afraid to express her wishes surprising, but she will also become one of the most popular members of the royal family.
In February, Queen Elizabeth II publicly announced her approval for her daughter-in-law to become Queen Consort.
In her platinum jubilee speech, the monarch spoke of her “heartfelt desire” for Camilla to accept the honorary title. The Daily Mail revealed that Queen Elizabeth II gave her approval to crown Camilla Queen Consort years ago, and Charles barely announced it in 2019.
The Queen decided to break the news on the 70th anniversary of her reign and publicly declare her wish for Charles to become Queen Consort when he becomes King.
“When the time comes, my son Charles becomes King, I know you will give him and his wife Camilla the same huge support that you give me.” “It is my sincere wish that, in due course, Camilla will be known as Queen Consort in her royal duties,” the monarch said.
Camilla later admitted she felt “honored and touched” by the confirmation of such public approval.
The gradual progress in the hierarchy of the royal family is also illustrated by the fact that Camilla attended the opening of the parliamentary session. In 2016, she was appointed a member of the country’s State Council, which meant that she would be by her husband’s side when he was officially declared monarch at the Throne Council.
Camilla builds her image as a member of the royal family by actively contributing to the promotion of literacy, the fight against domestic violence and sexual harassment. Her great sense of humor and dedication to her husband and service to society help her to win media attention.
Camilla will be crowned alongside her husband – just like the last Queen Consort Queen Mother. It is speculated that the Queen Mother’s 1937 coronation crown will be placed on her.
