It’s Official Charles’s Wife, Camilla, Is Now Queen Camilla

In preparation for King Charles III’s coronation on May 6, Buckingham Palace used the title “Queen Camilla” for the first time on invitations.

The elaborate invitations, designed in a medieval style, were revealed on Tuesday and will be sent to over 2,000 guests. Until now, Camilla has been referred to as the queen consort, but now she is given equal billing.

In light of her role in the breakup of Charles’ marriage to the late Princess Diana, the new title is yet another sign of the remarkable transformation of a woman once derided as a homewrecker.

Charles and Camilla knew each other for a long time before the future king married Diana in 1981, and they stayed close throughout the troubled marriage. This made Diana’s many fans laugh at Camilla, who stood by the princess as her marriage fell apart.

But since she married Charles in a civil ceremony in 2005, Camilla has won over a lot of people with her warmth and sense of humor. Early last year, before she died, Queen Elizabeth II said that she hoped Camilla would be called “queen consort” when Charles became king.

On May 6, she and her husband will both be crowned at Westminster Abbey.

On Tuesday, the palace revealed some additional information about the coronation, including the fact that Prince George, the king’s eldest grandson and the heir apparent, would be one of four pages of honor to attend the monarch during the service. In addition, Camilla will receive four pages.

The eight young pages are either close friends or family members of Charles and Camilla. During the day, they will carry the robes of important people.

The Green Man, an old symbol, is used on the coronation invitations as a nod to the monarch’s history of supporting conservation and protecting the environment.
