Prince Charles is allegedly hoping Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall to be crowned by his side as Queen Consort regardless of official plans, the expert suggested. Following Charles’ marriage to Camilla Parker Bowles in 2005, Clarence House released a statement that the Duchess would become Princess Consort rather than Queen Consort when he is king. Christopher Andersen claimed that Prince Charles “always hoped” for Camilla to be the Queen Consort and had counted on using Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to help him sell the plan.

Mr Andersen told podcast To Di For said: “Queen, of course, she’s going to be Queen, she’ll automatically become Queen when he’s King.

“Do you think he’s going to have a coronation and then say Oh! You’ll be the first Queen Consort in modern history to just be ignored? Of course not.

“He’s going to crown her and he’s always intended to. And he really needed Harry up there and Meghan to help sell the public not only on this.

“He’s not the most popular guy, never was, not only on his monarchy…but also to sell Camilla as Queen and now he’s got lost really a major component.

“I think in that equation wow that’s fascinating to think about that.”

Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles started dating after meeting at a polo match.

After both divorced their partners, and years of PR work, the Prince of Wales married his partner on April 9, 2005 at Windsor Guildhall.

As speculation arose about the title Camilla will hold once Charles is king, Clarence House issued another statement, reiterating: “The intention is for the Duchess to be known as Princess Consort when the Prince accedes to the throne.

“This was announced at the time of the marriage and there has been absolutely no change at all.”

According to the constitutional advisors, however, Camilla will become Queen Consort once Prince Charles replaces the Monarch as King regardless of Clarence House’s plans.

A constitutional spokesperson told The Times, he said: “Prince Charles will no doubt have regard to public opinion at the time of his accession, in deciding whether Camilla should become queen; and he may also want to seek the advice of the government of the day.”

Historian Robert Lacey claimed the royal has been campaigning for years for Camilla to be given the title: “Privately I discovered both brothers are absolutely sick to the back teeth of Charles trying to negotiate full Queen status for Camilla.”

Penny Junor, the author of Camilla’s biography, suggested the issue of Camilla should be Queen Consort or not will deeply impact other royal brides in her position in the future.

She wrote: “I think she should be Queen. There’s no reason on earth why she shouldn’t be. They were both divorcees and the past was unfortunate.

“It happened. All over the world people divorce, they make mistakes and they divorce.

“She’s been married to him 16 years. She has been a superb Duchess. She has slowly, slowly worked her way into the role.

“There’s no sense that she’s in competition with him. She’s put her name to some very brave causes.”
