“Settles the Argument”
After Camilla and Charles were married at a civil wedding in 2005, it was revealed that Camilla would be referred to as Princess Consort, instead of Queen Consort due to the public’s concern.
However, royal experts believe that the Queen’s endorsement could convince the masses to support Camilla as the Queen.
“For Camilla, the journey from being the third person in a marriage to queen-in-waiting is complete,” says former royal reporter Peter Hunt.
Emily Nash from Hello! magazine is in agreement: “By her giving her own royal approval to Queen Camilla, the Queen Consort, it settles an argument that’s been raging for many years – and I think that that’s what’s going to happen now.”
“This is the Queen’s wish,” says Junor. “This is not about Charles being headstrong and wanting this for the woman he loves. It is a proper endorsement from the top and it’s right and well-deserved, and just as it should be.”
For the historian Robert Lacey, the timing of the Queen’s speech – just one year after the death of Prince Philip – is touching.
“She has been clearly been thinking about the importance of a partner and a consort to her. She has just lost her own consort, and I think that’s a big factor in why we’re hearing it now,” says the BBC.
“They call it the Firm – and this really brings Camilla into the Firm properly.”
