Camilla may be called "queen" despite Elizabeth II's will: what does this mean?
The late Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain willed shortly before her death that her daughter-in-law Camilla would receive the title of Queen Consort, but King Charles III and his wife seem to be trying to circumvent the monarch's will. They started talking about this a few months ago, and recently foreign media have noticed specific steps taken by Buckingham Palace that point to this.
It seems that until the official coronation of Charles III, the British will hear "Queen" everywhere, not "Queen Consort". This is the opinion of Daily Mail journalists (to see the photo, scroll to the bottom of the page).
The first signs of the "renaming" appeared last week when Camilla announced the relaunch of a private reading club called The Queen's Reading Room. She did not use her full title of "Queen Consort" in the name.
It is believed that the official royal engagement register may also soon reflect this change and refer to Camilla as simply the Queen.
An insider close to the royal family told reporters: "There is a feeling in the palace that Queen Consort sounds too long, and perhaps it would be easier for Camilla to just call her Queen when the time is right."
In addition, some well-known British media outlets have begun to shorten the title of the wife of King Charles III. All these decisions encourage the country's citizens to call Camilla the Queen.
It should be noted that such changes are not new for the UK. As a non-ruling queen, the wife of the late King George VI was Queen Consort, but the public knew her simply as Queen Elizabeth. There have been many such cases in the history of the monarchy.
