Camilla WILL become Queen Consort if Charles is King – ‘There is NO question’
There is “no question” that Camilla will become Queen Consort if Prince Charles takes to the throne, a royal expert has claimed.
The Duchess of Cornwall will take the title of Queen Consort if Charles becomes King unless there is a change in the law, according to royal author Robert Jobson. Mr Jobson – who broke the story that the couple were getting married in 2005 – explained that the law would have to be changed for Camilla not to be Queen Consort. The royal biographer said: “There will have to be a change in the law for her not to be the Queen Consort.
“She will be Queen Consort if he becomes the King, there is no question about that.
“When I wrote the story that they were getting married I said she that would be Duchess of Cornwall but she could be Princess of Wales, but she chose not to.
“But she will be Queen Consort unless there is a change in the law.”
Mr Jobson, who recently released a biography of Charles, added that Camilla is “very popular”
The royal author said: “I think she is a popular lady. She does her job, she supports him, she is not in competition with the Prince of Wales in any way. She has her own causes.
“I think that people will be accepting of her as the future Queen Consort.”
It comes as speculation is high over Camilla’s future title following Charles’s 70th birthday on November 14.
When Camilla and Charles wed in 2005, the royals insisted that Camilla would be known as Princess Consort.
Tensions were running high at the time over the events surrounding the breakdown of Charles’s marriage to Princess Diana.
But Charles and Camilla have now been married for 13 years and the public have warmed to the Duchess as she has supported Charles in his royal work and established her place in the Royal Family.
And all references to Camilla being Princess Consort have been removed from Clarence House’s website.
In November, Camilla stood alongside Her Majesty on the balcony of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office as Charles laid a wreath on the Queen’s behalf in a sign of his growing responsibility.
And the Queen praised Camilla’s support of Charles as she wished her son a happy birthday at a private party the monarch hosted at Buckingham Palace.
The 92-year-old said: “Over his 70 years, Philip and I have seen Charles become a champion of conservation and the arts, a great charitable leader – a dedicated and respected heir to the throne to stand comparison with any in history – and a wonderful father.
“Most of all, sustained by his wife Camilla, he is his own man, passionate and creative.”
Camilla took centre stage in official family pictures released to mark Charles’s milestone birthday, posing alongside his children, their wives and his beloved grandchildren.
