King Charles III has issued a Royal Warrant stating that Camilla should be referred to as Queen Camilla in prayers said for or referring to the Royal Family.

Lambeth Palace published the notice, which stated that “with effect from 6 May 2023, in every prayer for the Royal Family contained in any form of service authorised for use in the Church of England, instead of the words ‘Camilla, the Queen Consort’, the words ‘Queen Camilla’ should be inserted.”

It has never been necessary to refer to Camilla as “Camilla, the Queen Consort” as none of her predecessors were referred to as such. You can read more about it here. She is rightfully “Her Majesty The Queen”, although Queen Camilla would also be acceptable.
