Camilla will have a new title created just for her when Prince Charles becomes King
When Camilla married the Prince of Wales, the British were assured that she would never be Queen.
Clarence House had stated on the occasion of their wedding in 2005 that Camilla would adopt the style of Princess Consort when Prince Charles became King.
The Queen, Elizabeth II, is now 92 years old, and though she displays an enviable health and vigor, her reign is coming to an end. Waiting in the wings is her oldest son, the Prince of Wales.
Charles Phillip Arthur George is 70, and he has known for most of his life that he would be Prince of Wales for decades before he could ascend to the throne of the United Kingdom, reported Vanity Fair, on November 1, 2018.
THE PRINCE'S SECOND WIFE IS NOT PRINCESS OF WALES
At his side when he is crowned will be his second wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, 71.
The former Camilla Parker Parker Bowles did not assume the title of Princess of Wales which was closely associated with Charles' first wife, the former Lady Diana Spencer.
A DUCHESS UNDER A CLOUD
Duchess Camilla had been known to have been in a clandestine relationship with Prince Charles during his ill-fated marriage to the popular Princess Diana, and the divorce cast her in the worse possible light.
AN UNPOPULAR MARRIAGE
The British saw her as a home-wrecker and her marriage to the Prince of Wales in 2005 was not popular. Even though Princess Diana had died in 1997, Duchess Camilla, who had been close to Prince Charles since 1971, was still seen as a usurper.
REHABILITATING THE CORNWALL'S IMAGE
Prince Charles appointed Mark Bolland -whom he had employed in 1995 to refurbish his own image - to enhance Camilla's public profile. He believed that as the people grew to know her, they would accept her.
TWENTY YEARS LATER, PUBLIC ACCEPTANCE
It has taken the couple 20 years to see their relationship accepted by the British people, and Prince William's approval of Duchess Camilla as his father's wife has gone a long way towards reconciling the public to the situation.
BUT WILL THE BRITS ACCEPT QUEEN CAMILLA?
It is believed that when Prince Charles becomes the King of England, Duchess Camilla will become the Princess Consort instead.
A marriage between divorcees like Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla is counter to the traditions of the Church of England. Queen Elizabeth II's uncle, King Edward VIII had to abdicate the throne in order to marry the American divorcee Wallis Simpson in 1936.
Queen Victoria married Prince Albert, but he was never crowned as king. He became Prince Consort; as had Queen Anne's husband Prince George of Denmark.
Queen Elizabeth's husband, Prince Phillip is the Duke of Edinburgh; and it is likely that Duchess Camilla will be titled Princess Consort rather than Queen.
