On May 6, 2021, Camilla Parker Bowles will officially become Queen Consort when her husband, King Charles, is crowned at Westminster Abbey. After 17 years of marriage, Camilla will finally be given the title of Queen Consort, making her the first woman to hold the title since Queen Elizabeth I in 1558.
The title of Queen Consort is traditionally given to the wife of a reigning monarch. As Queen Consort, Camilla will be the highest-ranking female in the British monarchy, and will be given the same privileges and honors as the Queen. She will be expected to attend state functions, make public appearances, and represent the monarchy in a positive light.
Camilla’s new title is not without controversy, however. Many people feel that she should not be given the title of Queen Consort due to her past relationship with Prince Charles. Camilla and Charles were in a relationship before he married Princess Diana, and many people feel that Camilla should not be given the same title as Diana.
Despite the controversy, Camilla will be officially crowned Queen Consort on May 6, 2021. This will be a historic moment for the British monarchy, and a sign of progress for women in the United Kingdom. Camilla will be the first woman to hold the title of Queen Consort since Queen Elizabeth I in 1558, and will be a symbol of strength and progress for women everywhere.
