King Charles III & Queen Consort Camilla: How They Got Their Happy Endings
In 1995, Camilla and Andrew Parker Bowles officially announced their divorce. The following year, the royal family also announced that Charles and Diana were dissolving their marriage. But that will be years before that Camilla finally officially accepted by the royal family is happening
In 2005, Charles and Camilla finally got it her happy ending. On 9 April they celebrate their wedding and Camilla is officially crowned Duchess of Cornwall. Explosive: At the time, the royal family were still announcing that Camilla would hold the title of ‘Princess Consort’ when Charles one day became king.
But as we know today, that has changed has changed in the meantime: On the occasion of her Platinum Jubilee in February 2022, Queen Elizabeth II personally announced that it was her “I sincerely wish that when the time comes, Camilla will be referred to as Queen Consort while she goes about her own business.“That is why Camilla has held that title since Charles became King and continues to carry out her duties as the Queen has requested.
Meanwhile, Camilla is also used by most Brits accepted as queen – probably because they know how important she is to Charles. “It’s always great to have someone who understands and wants to encourage you. But of course he also makes fun of me when I’m too serious“, the then-heir to the throne said in a 2015 CNN interview about his wife. The quote shows: Charles and Camilla just know what they have in them and are – despite all the turmoil they’ve had to go through together, now perfectly happy together. AND a dreamy ending to a royal love story.
