On the eve of her accession day, Her Majesty The Queen has publically called for The Duchess of Cornwall to become Queen consort when Charles succeeds as King.

In a statement released by Buckingham Palace, The Queen wrote, “This anniversary also affords me a time to reflect on the goodwill shown to me by people of all nationalities, faiths and ages in this country and around the world over these years. I would like to express my thanks to you all for your support. I remain eternally grateful for, and humbled by, the loyalty and affection that you continue to give me. And when, 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 have given 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.”

At the time of Charles and Camilla’s marriage, it was announced that she would be known as “Princess consort”1, although the actual implementation of that seemed rather iffy, as a wife automatically takes the rank and status of her husband. As Charles would be a King, Camilla should automatically take on the feminine form of this title – Queen (consort) – as all the Queen consorts before her. This statement from The Queen should make it clear that this is how it should be and will be.
