A royal expert has claimed that Camilla Parker-Bowles will become the Queen when her husband Prince Charles takes over the throne as King.
Previously, the 71-year-old Duchess of Cornwall was destined to take on the title of Princess Consort when Charles assumes the role of head of state, but one royal observer has dismissed the title as "nonsense", instead insisting that, "when Charles take to the throne, Camilla will become Queen Consort."
The editor-in-chief of Royal Central, Charles Proctor, told The Sun, "The official line is that when Charles becomes king, Camilla with become Princess Consort. I personally think that is nonsense."
"The monarchy is not a popularity contest, and you can't change titles in fear of certain people still having chips on their shoulders," he continued.
The general public is quite against the idea of having a Queen Camilla. In August 2017 during the 20th anniversary of Princess Diana's death in Paris, a poll revealed that 67 percent of people did not like the idea of Camilla becoming Queen.
After her wedding to Prince Charles in 2005, Camilla was entitled to take the title Princess of Wales but she is yet to use it due to its association with Princess Diana. Another reason she is yet to use is it is because she is a divorcee and was already previously known as the Duchess of Cornwall.
Clarence House stated in 2005 that Camilla would be known as Princess Consort when Charles took over the throne. Although, under the Treason Act 1351 and the Regency Act 1937, Camilla should become Queen Consort.
Mr Proctor has since thrown his full support behind Camilla saying that she would make an excellent Queen due to being "a hardworking, kind and dedicated member of The Royal Family," and that "the backlash against Camilla in unfair and unfounded."
