Camilla to Be Called 'Queen' not 'Queen Consort,' Reports Say

Camilla, the spouse of King Charles III, is reportedly getting a title change. It may come after the coronation of King Charles III next May, reports indicated on Sunday.

Camilla will be called a "Queen", not a "Queen Consort" which is against the wishes of the late Queen Elizabeth II. 

Queen Elizabeth wrote a few months before her death: “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 the time comes, Camilla will be known as Queen Consort as she continues her own loyal service."

Camilla Parker-Bowles got married to King Charles III in 2005, and she became known as the Duchess of Cornwall. 

After King Charles III ascended Queen Elizabeth II, Camilla became a Queen Consort.  

The forthcoming change was teased last week when Camilla’s charity was rebranded as the “Queen’s Reading Room” rather than the “Duchess of Cornwall’s Reading Room.”
