The title “Queen” is more than an accolade by the Queen
It was a royal bang that Queen Elizabeth emphatically heard on the eve of her platinum anniversary on the throne: in her message to the British, she expressed her desire to have Duchess Camilla as queen at Prince Charles’ side after her death to know. An award that the second wife of the heir to the throne has worked hard for.
Duchess Camilla, 74, and Prince Charles, 73, reacted immediately to the public accolade that Queen Elizabeth, 95, bestowed on her daughter-in-law on the special occasion of her 70th jubilee. “The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall are touched and honored by Her Majesty’s words,” a spokesman for the couple said.
As “Queen Consort”, Duchess Camilla will be the most important support of the future king
The Queen had announced on the evening of February 5, 2022 that Camilla would take over the title of “Queen Consort” if her son one day ascended the throne. A “royal consort” is the wife of a reigning monarch. Camilla’s primary role will be to support Charles in loyal companionship. This gives her an influence in the royal structure that should not be underestimated. Most recently, Queen Mother Elizabeth, †101, shone in this role alongside King George, †56.
Message from Queen Elizabeth comes at the perfect time
A valuable sign for Camilla that gains even more quality given the timing of its release. The monarch used the evening before her own fateful day to emphatically convey her wish. On February 6, 1952, her life took a dramatic turn when she succeeded her father, King George, at the age of 25, on the day of his death.
“I would like to express my gratitude to all of you for your support. I remain eternally grateful and humbled for the loyalty and affection you continue to show me,” the monarch wrote to her people on the eve of her anniversary. “And when my son Charles becomes king in due course, I know that you will give him and his wife Camilla the same support that you have given me; and it is my sincere wish that when that time comes, Camilla will be known as the Queen Consort while she continues her own faithful ministry.”
“Following Diana wasn’t easy for Camilla”
In recent years, it has been said that Camilla “intends” to be called the “Princess Consort” one day. A title that could be translated as “king’s wife of the rank of princess”. An idea that was apparently discarded some time ago. Mention of “Princess Consort” was deleted from the Prince of Wales’s website back in 2018.
Camilla is now expected to receive the title that she worked hard to earn during her marriage with great commitment. Her start on the side of the heir to the throne was no picnic. “Following Diana wasn’t easy for Camilla – but she has earned the respect of the Queen,” emphasizes Royal correspondent Russel Myers from “Mirror”. The Queen’s decision, formulated as a wish, is a special appreciation of the services her daughter-in-law has provided so far done in the name of the Crown and at her husband’s side.
Highest mark of respect
“Since becoming part of the royal family, Camilla has proven to be a worthy addition, a rock to Charles and a very popular presence.” With the Queen’s historic message, she received the “ultimate award”. Her announcement is interpreted in Great Britain as the highest mark of respect. “It shows her confidence and admiration for a woman who she believes will continue the tradition of ministry she has worked hard for,” Myers said.
Married happiness at the second attempt
Camilla has also made herself popular with Brits since her marriage to Prince Charles. In the early years as a member of the royal family, the shadow of Princess Diana, † 36, probably almost threatened to overwhelm her at times. The late mother of Prince William, 39, and Prince Harry, 36, was revered around the world and almost stylized as something almost divine. “It hasn’t been easy for Camilla to follow Diana, who is loved by so many. Yet she has met the challenge with quiet dignity and has been a constant presence during the turbulent times that have engulfed the family,” said the royal -Expert.
The Queen’s request to the British people to support Camilla in her future task is like a clever move to permanently establish her designated successor to the King’s side. For Camilla, the greatest honor she can receive as a member of the royal family.
