Charles, the Prince of Wales has indicated for the first time that his second wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, nee Camilla Parker Bowles, could become “Queen Camilla” when he ascends to the throne.
Until now, the Prince has always stuck to the line that his wife will be known as Princess Consort when he is king.
But in an interview on the US television channel NBC, he suggested the Duchess “could be” given the title of Queen.
The proposed title of Princess Consort was concocted under the previous Labour government to minimize controversy when the Prince married his unpopular second wife in 2005. Camilla was Charles’s mistress during his marriage to the late Princess Diana, and is blamed for the break-up of their marriage.
