Queen Consort Camilla Parker-Bowles is reportedly dropping the "consort" in her title next year after her and King Charles' coronation. A royal correspondent weighed in on her future title after the coronation and was convinced that she would be "Wueen."
Queen Consort Camilla Parker-Bowles Will Be Queen After King Charles' Coronation
Camilla Parker-Bowles will be crowned alongside King Charles next year. Royal correspondent Peter Hunt shared his thoughts about her title, and he speculated that the queen consort title was only given to her for the British public to "prepare" for the idea of her becoming a queen one day.
"The other thing we shouldn't forget before finishing is, of course, one other person will also be crowned," he said on LBC (via Express). "I mean, quite an extraordinary moment will be the crowning of Camilla. Queen Camilla, after her husband she too will be anointed. Whether there is anything from a monkey's gland in her oil, we'll wait and see."
When Hunt was asked if the public would be addressing King Charles' wife as Queen Camilla or Queen Consort Camilla, the expert said, "I am absolutely convinced that she has always been Queen Camilla."
Hunt went on and explained the possible reason she was given the queen consort title.
"I've always been convinced that Queen Consort was a mechanism by which the Palace prepared us for this moment," Hunt said. "And I suspect that between now and May 6th, they will start calling her Queen Camilla."
