When Charles, Prince of Wales, ascends to the throne of the United Kingdom, he will become King Charles III. He’s not the only royal to get a new title, though—Camilla Parker Bowles, King Charles’s wife of 17 years, will also have a new title: queen consort.
Queen consort is the title given to the wife of a reigning king. The title has been used in the British monarchy since the 16th century, and it is the highest title that a woman can hold in the monarchy. Queen consort is a lifetime title, and it will be Camilla’s official title until her death or the death of her husband, King Charles.
Camilla will officially be crowned queen consort during King Charles’s coronation at Westminster Abbey on May 6, 05-Jan-2023. This will be a historic moment for the British monarchy, as Camilla will be the first woman to be crowned queen consort since Queen Alexandra in 1902.
Camilla will also have a number of other titles and roles. She will be known as Her Majesty the Queen, and she will be the Supreme Governor of the Church of England. She will also be the Patron of numerous charities and organizations, and she will be the head of the royal family.
Camilla will be a popular figure in the United Kingdom, and her new title will be a source of pride for many. As queen consort, she will be a symbol of the monarchy and a role model for many women. She will also be a source of support for her husband, King Charles, as he takes on the responsibilities of the British monarchy.
