CAMILLA, Duchess of Cornwall, should not become Queen of the country when her husband Prince Charles takes to the throne because it would spark the “end of the monarchy”, Express.co.uk readers have said.
Up to 73 percent (3,201) of nearly 4,500 readers who said Camilla, 72, should not be handed the prestigious title when Charles becomes King. This was compared to just 25 percent (1,143) readers who said Charles’ second wife should be named Queen when the Prince of Wales succeeds his mother. Prince Charles is yet to decide whether to give his second wife Camilla Parker Bowles the title Queen Camilla after the pair married in 2005. Since then there has been ongoing uncertainty over Camilla’s potential title, which will not be officially confirmed until he eventually succeeds his mother, the Queen.
The Queen’s eldest son is understood to want to make Camilla Queen Consort when he ascends to the throne, but faces public backlash over the move.
Express.co.uk commenters reflected the results of the poll saying they would “never” accept Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, as Queen Consort.
One posted: “If Charlie makes her queen then that will be the end of the monarchy.”
Another posted: “Whilst I’ve come to accept Camilla as Charles’ wife, I will never accept her as Queen consort.”

“The announcement that she will be Queen Consort will take place within a day of Charles ascending the throne.
“However in the run up to the Coronation, her suitability for the role is likely to be much debated.
“Her role as Queen Consort would be to continue doing what she does now so well, to support Charles and carry out royal engagements as well as continue to help the major charities and institutions she supports.”
The Express.co.uk poll of 4,439 readers ran from 9.36am on Wednesday to 9.22am on Thursday.
