Queen Elizabeth II, 95 years old, is Britain’s longest-serving monarch. She is a pillar of the country, but she does not always take the throne. Eventually, she will be taken over by her eldest son, Prince Charles.
But what does this mean for Charles? wifeCamilla, Duchess of Cornwall?
On Saturday, the Queen revealed her stance that she really wanted to make Camilla the Queen. She said this in a message commemorating her Majesty’s 70th anniversary.
“This anniversary also gives us time to reflect on the goodwill that people of all nationalities, beliefs and ages in this country and around the world have shown over the last few years,” she said. “Thank you very much for your support. Thank you for your patronage. And over time, my son Charles will become King. I am you and his wife Camilla. I know that you will give me the same support you gave me; and when that time comes, I sincerely hope that Camilla will continue her own faithful service and be known as the Queen. “
Camilla is Charles’ second wife. He is famous for marrying and divorcing Princess Diana from 1981 to 1996. Diana died in a car accident in 1997. Charles and Camilla knew each other before they got married (she was married at the time). Flirt for decades after he tied the knot..
However, she is not necessarily given the title of Queen just because Camilla is married to a future King of England.
“At this point, she is said to remain the Duchess, which is unprecedented in British history and has no position in British law,” said British historian Andrew Roberts today in 2021. Told.
In 2005, when Charles and Camilla got married, Prince of Wales website According to Susanna Lipscomb, an emeritus professor at the University of Roehampton, whom I spoke to today, Camilla would be a “queen” instead of a queen if Charles took the throne.
For example, she said Prince Albert was the Queen of Queen Victoria.But the title is no Awarded to Prince Phillip, the husband of Queen Elizabeth, the queen has never been. That’s because “by customary law, the king’s wife becomes the queen,” says Lip Scone.
Over the years, Camilla has earned the trust of Queen Elizabeth II. She was appointed to the Order of the Garter In late 2020, the highest honor of the monarchy is stated by Christine Contino, chief reporter at Royal Central and author of “House Full of Windsor.”
“Camira has certainly come a long way in terms of public support since Diana’s time,” Contino said today. “Charles is also said to want her to be known as his queen, which is understandable.”
The descendants of Charles and Diana are calm. Prince William of the Duke of Cambridge follows the succession to the throne, followed by William’s children. William’s younger brother, Harry, Duke of Sussex, 6th in line Succession to the throne.
Camilla and Charles have no children, but since their first marriage to Andrew Parker Bowles, they have two grown-up children, Tom Parker Bowles and Laura Lopez. Will you be promoted in any way by having a relationship with the queen / queen / queen?
It’s unlikely, Contino says. “Tom, a culinary critic and a prominent cookbook writer, is helping Camilla’s reading room project. Laura’s daughter Eliza was a wedding bridesmaid (of William and Catherine), but it. Other than that, the Parker Bowles family frequently goes to royal events, such as they change it or Charles gives them a title, except for attending crowning ceremonies and perhaps other big royal celebrations. I can’t see you doing. “
