Buckingham Palace has released a message from her majesty the queen on the occasion of her Platinum Jubilee that it is her desire that the Duchess of Cornwall be known as Queen Camilla when it is her time for the Prince of Wales and Camilla to ascend the throne.

In 2005 when the Prince of Wales married Camilla it was announced she would be known as “Princess Consort” upon Charles’s accession to the throne.

Legally The Duchess of Cornwall will be Queen Consort upon the accession of the Prince of Wales because it would take an Act of Parliament to remove the title of Queen. In the announcement by Her Majesty the Queen it makes the rightful transition much smoother for The Duchess of Cornwall to become Queen Consort.
