Camilla, Queen Consort of the United Kingdom

 


Camilla, Duchess of CornwallCamilla, Queen Consort of the United Kingdom, is the second wife of King Charles III. Camilla became Queen Consort upon the death of her mother-in-law Queen Elizabeth II on 8 September 2022 as her husband Charles succeeded his mother as sovereign.

When Camilla married Charles, she was entitled to be called "Princess of Wales" but chose instead to be known as Duchess of Cornwall out of respect for his first wife, Diana.

In her 2022 Accession Day message, Queen Elizabeth II announced that it was her “most sincere wish that, when the time comes, Camilla will be known as Queen Consort as she continues her own loyal service.” The title Queen Consort means Camilla is the wife of the reigning monarch rather than a Queen who ascends to the throne through succession. The last Queen consort was Queen Elizabeth II’s mother, who became known as the Queen Mother when her daughter became Queen.

Camilla was crowned alongside her husband King Charles III at Westminster Abbey on 6 May 2023. She wore a crown set with 2,200 diamonds,previously worn by Charles' great-grandmother Queen Mary when she was crowned alongside her husband King George V. 

 

The Queen Consort is a busy lady! She travels widely with King Charles III and is also involved with 70 charities. She is particularly keen to encourage children to eat well and healthily and to promote local food production.
