1. No one like Camila managed to “survive” the scandal and achieve what she set out to do. Camilla Parker went from the prince’s lover to the title of the queen consort, and with all possible honors. Charles automatically became king after his mother’s death, and his second wife is now the queen’s consort. Camilla Parker is known in royal circles as “the mistress” because she somehow influenced the breakup of Charles’ marriage to Diana.
2. When news of their affair first came to light, Camila faced fierce criticism. It took time for the public to accept after Diana’s death in 1997, and when she married Charles in 2005, the topic of her future title was a source of controversy. At the time, royal aides said Camilla did not want to be known as Queen Consort, although she had every right to be known. Instead, she “intended” in due course to be known as “Princess Consort” – a title never before used in British history.
3. In February, Queen Elizabeth II publicly announced her support for her daughter-in-law to assume the title of Queen Consort when the time is right. The Daily Mail revealed that Queen Elizabeth gave her blessing to crown Camilla as Queen Consort years ago and that Charles was close to announcing it in 2019. The Queen chose the 70th anniversary of her accession to the throne to make a very significant announcement and expressed her wish that Camilla would be fully recognized when Charles became king.
“When, in full time, my son Charles becomes King, I know you will give him and his wife Camilla the same support you have given me, and it is my sincere wish that when the time comes Camilla will be known as Queen Consort as she continues her loyal service .” – Elizabeth II said
