Why Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla, will be a great Queen Consort?


When Prince Charles becomes King, he’ll have his wife, Camilla by his side. Since tying the knot in 2005, this royal couple has tackled their royal duties as a team.

 After Charles’ succession on the throne, the Duchess of Cornwall will be titled as the Queen Consort.

Charles Anson, former press secretary of Queen, praises the Duchess of Cornwall as someone who ‘kind of jollies’ her husband. A wife, that doesn’t let her husband get too overburdened by the woes of the world.

He explains: “She’s got a good philosophy about life. According to her, there are things you can change, other things you can’t change. So, don’t get too hung up about it”.

“And honestly, I think she will be a great Consort as Queen”. 

Prince Charles first met Camilla at a polo match in 1970, and their connection was instant.

Penny Junor, a royal expert says:-

“He loved the fact that she smiled with her eyes as well as her mouth. And she even laughed at the same silly things as he did. Charles also liked that she was so natural and easy”. 

“In short, he was very much taken with her, and after that first meeting he began ringing her up”. 

There was a time when they part their ways.

In 1971, Charles joined the Royal Navy, putting an end to his relationship with Camilla. They eventually parted ways, and Camilla reconnected with Andrew Parker Bowles. They tied the knot on July 4, 1973, devastating Charles. 

Camilla and Charles started up an affair in the late 1970’s, but he called things off upon his engagement to Princess Diana. Despite them both being married with children, the pair began seeing each other again in 1986.

At this point, Diana knew about the affair, and even claims to have approached Camilla herself.

Charles and Diana separated in 1992. Camilla and Andrew Bowles followed suit in 1995. That same year, Diana gave an explosive interview to BBC in which she is candid about the affair. 

She said: “Well, there were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded”.

The former lovers got back together, slowly stepping out together and meeting Harry and William. In 2005, Charles and Camilla announced their engagement and married in a civil ceremony at Windsor Guildhall on April 9.
