Camilla set to be Charles's queen

Text size Aa Aa

The news has sent shockwaves through Britain. Camilla Parker Bowles will automatically become queen if Prince Charles succeeds to the throne. A change in the law would be needed to deprive her of that status. The revelation comes despite earlier royal assurances that Camilla – who will marry her long-time lover next month – would not become queen but would instead be Charles’s Princess Consort.

While newspaper polls suggest the British public now tolerates the couple’s relationship, the majority oppose the idea of a “Queen Camilla.” The bride-to-be is still widely seen as the woman responsible for destroying Charles’s first marriage to the late Princess Diana.
