CAMILLA could become Queen Consort when Prince Charles takes the throne, with one royal expert claiming the Duchess of Cornwall will be “hugely supportive” to her husband.

Charles and Camilla wed in 2005, with the royal couple insisting at the time that the duchess would be known as Princess Consort when Charles becomes King.

But more than a decade later speculation is high that Camilla will take on the traditional title of Queen Consort after public opinion has softened towards the duchess following hostility over the breakdown of Charles’s first marriage to Princess Diana.

And royal author Penny Junor has claimed that Camilla, Charles’s long-term love, will give the heir to the throne “strength and confidence” to carry out his duty.

Speaking to Good Housekeeping, Ms Junor said: “Camilla will be a hugely supportive consort.

“She will give him the strength and the confidence to do the job he was born to do. He will be a better king for having her by his side.”

Ms Junor explained the couple will see a big change in their royal responsibilities when Charles takes to the throne.

The royal expert said: “There is a big difference between being heir and duchess and being king and queen.

“Their duties and responsibilities will be different, the public attitude towards them will be different, and I suspect that this will inevitably change them.”

Camilla and Charles are both heavily involved with charity work, with Camilla supporting her husband in his duties as heir to the throne.

Ms Junor said that the couple would share their new workload when Charles becomes King.

She said: “I am sure that they will keep up most of those charities and areas of interest, although Charles will inevitably not have time to be so hands-on.

“But overall, the workload will be shared equally between the two of them, William and Kate, and Harry and Meghan.”

Ms Junor added that Charles will continue to show public affection to his wife when he is the monarch.

Ms Junor said: “I think they are a different generation and times have changed.

“Besides, Charles is still so besotted with Camilla, even after all these years, that it would be hard for him not to show his natural affection.”

It comes after Charles and Camilla put on a very public display of affection earlier this week, with the duchess resting a loving hand on the Prince’s thigh as the pair posed for a picture for Vanity Fair magazine.

The couple first dated in the early 1970s, with Camilla going on to marry Andrew Parker Bowles in 1973 while Charles married Diana in 1981.

But both marriages broke down and Charles and Camilla went on to marry in a civil ceremony in 2005.
