The REAL reason Camilla doesn’t use Diana’s Princess of Wales title
CAMILLA legally holds the Princess of Wales title but she chooses not to use it – and there is a big reason behind it.
When Camilla Parker Bowles married Prince Charles in 2005, she officially gained the title of the Princess of Wales.
It is still held by her but she chooses to go by the Duchess of Cornwall title and it’s purely out of respect for its previous holder, Princess Diana.
Camilla was officially given a Her Royal Highness title (HRH) and earned the name Duchess of Cornwall on her wedding day.
When Charles and Diana officially divorced in 1996, Diana was stripped of her HRH distinction and became known as Diana, Princess of Wales.
The title is so strongly associated with her that Camilla chose to take the feminine form of her husband’s title as Duke of Cornwall instead – a title that also belonged to Diana during her marriage.
It comes as speculation whether Camilla will be the next Queen increases.
It is believed Prince Charles wants her to wear the crown when Queen Elizabeth II dies and he takes over the throne.
It was previously mentioned on the official website of the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall that she would take the Princess Consort title.
“er Majesty will hand over more power to Prince Charles and he could become Prince Regent”
However, all mention of this statement has now been stripped from their website.
The fact that Princess Consort is not mentioned anywhere on the website has fuelled speculation about whether Prince Charles is paving way for his wife to be crowned Queen.
A Royal source revealed to Daily Star Online that Camilla still doesn’t want to be Queen Consort – but Charles does.
The source said the Queen plans to take a step back when she turns 95 – bringing the Regency Act into force.
This would make Charles a Prince Regent – a King in all but name.
The source said: “Her Majesty will hand over more power to Prince Charles and he could become Prince Regent but she will still be Queen until her last day.”
