CAMILLA, DUCHESS OF CORNWALL delighted fans with two important visits in South London on Wednesday. The Duchess has faced calls to “become Queen” when Prince Charles ascends the throne.
Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, 73, visited an inner-city stable and boxing club in Briston South London on Wednesday. The Clarence House Twitter account posted about the Duchess’s latest visits which received positive feedback from fans.
Clarence House tweeted: “The Duchess of Cornwall is visiting @EbonyHorseClub in Brixton, London, to meet young riders and horses and hear about how the club has supported the local community throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Although young people could not visit @EbonyHorseClub during lockdown, the charity continued to support the community by guiding families on where to get advice and arranging weekly video calls which allowed participants to virtually visit competition venues.
“They even became a hub for the National Schools Breakfast Club and distributed essential provisions for 80 local children per week, every Thursday.”
Clarence House shared clips of Camilla meeting horses and volunteers at the Ebony Horse Club to the delight of fans.

Camilla had rocky start in the Royal Family because of her affair with Prince Charles during his marriage to Princess Diana.
However, one fan claimed that in the years since their royal wedding Camilla has managed to turn public opinion around.
Commenting on a clip of Camilla at the stables they gushed: “As much as I admired the late Princess Diana, I’d say the Duchess of Cornwall has done a great job and is deserving to be Queen if God wills Charles to be king.”
Another wrote: “A lovely engagement by her RH the Duchess of Cornwall.”

Clarence House then tweeted about Camilla’s trip to the boxing club, which also received positive feedback.
The tweet read: “Next, The Duchess visits @EbonyHorseClub’s neighbours, @dwaynamics, located in another Brixton railway arch nearby.
“The Boxing Club gives young people in Brixton the opportunity to take part in free programmes.”
“The club also offers a support network and services across the community.”
“Following the tragic death of her son, Pastor Lorraine Jones founded
@Dwaynamics to steer at-risk youth away from gang-culture and violence, and encourage them to see that there is a future.”
One Twitter user wrote: “A lovely moment, my children will cherish this day”, while another put: “Love this.”
Will Camilla be Queen?
The question of whether Camilla will be Queen Consort when Charles takes the throne is cause for speculation.
While Clarence House maintains Camilla will be known as Princess Consort and not Queen when Charles is king, the title she takes will ultimately be decided by Charles.

In response to the question ‘Will Camilla become Queen Camilla?’, University College London’s Constitution Unit states: “Under common law the spouse of a King automatically becomes Queen. But there are two possible reasons why Camilla might not assume the title.
“The first is the argument that Camilla cannot become Queen because her 2005 civil marriage to Prince Charles was not valid.
“The argument runs as follows: because the Marriage Acts from 1753 have explicitly excepted royal marriages from their provisions, the only valid marriage which a member of the royal family could contract in England was a religious marriage in the Church of England.
“The Lord Chancellor in 2005 defended the validity of the Prince’s civil marriage, as did the Registrar General. But if Camilla became Queen, it might provoke further legal challenges.
“The second possible reason is public opinion. In deference to public opinion, Camilla has not assumed the title Princess of Wales.
“Prince Charles will no doubt have regard to public opinion at the time of his accession, in deciding whether Camilla should become Queen; and he may also want to seek the advice of the government of the day.
“The fallback position is that Camilla would become Princess Consort as announced at the time of their marriage.”
