A report said the title of King Charles III’s wife, Queen Consort Camilla, may be altered in order to "put her in line with centuries of wives of kings before her."
London: A report said the title of King Charles III’s wife, Queen Consort Camilla, may be altered in order to “put her in line with centuries of wives of kings before her.”
As reported by the Telegraph, the royal family wants to remove the word “Consort” from Queen Camilla’s title. Ahead of King Charles’ official coronation next year, the title of “Consort” will be replaced with a more straightforward address of “Queen Camilla.”
King Charles III and Camilla tied the knot in 2005. Buckingham Palace declared that Camilla would be eligible to use the title “Princess Consort” after her husband was crowned. The late monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, bestowed the title of “Queen Consort” on Camilla in February this year.
In a statement, the Queen said, “In the fullness of time, my son Charles becomes King. I know you will give him and his wife Camilla the same support that you gave me; and it is my sincere wish that, when that time comes, Camilla will be known as Queen Consort as she continues her own loyal service. ”
