The law professor said: “She cannot be forced to be called ‘Queen Consort’, but her role as the wife of the King is, by definition, that of Queen.
“This is, however, a very limited role, which need not involve the use of the title ‘Queen’.
“It is clear that Camilla is the wife of Prince Charles, the future sovereign. The civil ceremony was valid.
“Permission for the marriage was given by the Privy Council in March 2005, under the Royal Marriages Act 1772. This cannot be any longer in dispute. So when he accedes to the throne, she will be the wife of the King.
“The wife of a head of state is not a joint head of state, however. The Sovereign reigns on his or her own. In that sense Camilla will be a ‘Queen’ in the limited legal sense of being the wife of the sovereign.”
When Charles and Camilla wed, Clarence House issued a statement saying she intended to use the title “HRH The Princess Consort”.
A former Buckingham Palace spokesman Dickie Arbiter has said that Prince Charles may assume a different royal title when he becomes the king.
Mr Arbiter said: “He might choose one of his other names Philip, Arthur or George.”
Whether Camilla becomes ‘Queen’ or not is likely to be an issue that comes under scrutiny from the public eye.
However, the Queen shows no sign of slowing down and this weekend has been spotted attending church in Balmoral, where she is enjoying her summer break
