Royal Family left ‘bubbling’ over Camilla’s future title as Charles preps to become King | Royal | News

Prince Charles, 71, and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, 72, got married in 2005 following years of romance but her position in the Royal Family has caused “some bubbling” recently as the Queen gets older. Camilla will receive the title of Princess Consort when Charles becomes King and is said to have been told her title before becoming a royal, according to royal expert Angela Mollard.

Speaking on New Idea’s ROYALS podcast, Ms Mollard said: “I was living in London when Charles first stepped out with Camilla at the official opening of the Royal Albert Hall.

“The messaging around it in the newsroom was, how is this going to play out and how each newspaper was going to report on the fact they were there together.

“Many years have passed now, she is only going to be Princess Consort.

“She’s not going to be Queen as was discussed when she married Charles.

“There was always the directive that she would be Princess Consort.

“There must have been some bubbling over recently about the fact the Queen’s getting older and when Charles takes the throne, what will Camilla be called?

“Apparently she has no desire to be anything more than Princess Consort.

“She doesn’t need to be Queen and this is just confirmation from Clarence House that that will be her title.”

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has called on all people in the UK, particularly the over-70s, to avoid all non-essential contact and travel as part of unprecedented peacetime measures aimed at controlling the spread of Covid-19.

Elizabeth II, the nation’s longest-reigning monarch, is due to celebrate her 94th birthday next month, and the risk of more severe symptoms from the coronavirus is greater for the elderly and those with pre-existing health conditions.

Buckingham Palace said public royal events with large numbers of people in the coming months would be cancelled or postponed.

Investitures will be rearranged and the annual Maundy Service at St George’s Chapel has been cancelled, the palace said.
