With all due respect NextStar...I don't think it matters what you think.

The fact is with all that is going on in the world and in Britain...changing the law that would recognize Camilla as Princess Consort and not Queen is not a priority. And Camilla's reputation has nothing to do with anything. The fact is she is the wife of the Prince of Wales and when he becomes King she will become Queen whether she uses the title or not.

As an addition to QueenEna's reply, regardless what people from other countries want, British people (most of) actually want Camilla to be their Queen, as Sam's reply demostrated. And I must say I join in that sentiment, though I am Armenian.
The Duchess of Cornwall showed she's a wonderful asset to the British Royal Family and an able Princess of Wales, so there's no problem for her not to be Queen.
Plus, as various member stated, depriving Camilla of her rightful title would require law change not only in the UK but also in the Countries of Commonwealth. And I don't see that possible or probable.

It seems that Camilla is more accepted now than she was years ago. No matter what people think, she will be Queen & as QueenEna said she will be Queen even if she uses the title. I think she & Charles work well together & I think people see that. Just my two cents on the matter.

Britain has more important things to worry about than whether Camilla is Queen or Princess Consort. A King is married to a Queen. Charles will be King and Camilla will be Queen. The Princess Consort yarn was to soften the blow to the Diana loons but it soon became evident that once a loon always a loon. To change 1000 years of tradition because Camilla isn't young and leggy really is too ghastly for words and if ever a bill was introduced to change Camilla's title, I imagine it'd be laughed out of Parliament as a total waste of time.

I disagree with Queen Ena about Camilla being Queen and that not will change. And I agree with Beatrix Fan that there is more important things that they will have to worry about when it comes to government.Forget I feel but that really matters is that the british will have to accept her as their Queen .

It isn't really about the British accepting her as our Queen at all. We don't get consulted on it. We just get what we're given.

That's the way of the monarchy - you get what you're given. Some times you're lucky, and other times you aren't.

The British Monarchy has survived a heck of a lot worse than Camilla. She does her job, makes Charles happy and that's all we can ask for.

If Parliament really wants to spend its time productively on laws dealing with the royal family, I think that altering the succession so that females can inherit if they happen to be older than their brothers and so that royals can marry Catholics without giving up their places in the line of succession would have a far higher priority than some nonsense about making a law to allow Camilla to avoid her responsibility to be Queen Consort.

As they said when the notion of morganatic marriage was suggested for Edward VIII, it would be a pretty bloody stupid-looking law. "Whereas the wife of the king is Queen, and whereas the wife of the current king is unfit to be Queen...." I mean, honestly. Such raving idiocy. Being married to the King is all it takes to make a person fit to be Queen, especially considering some of the Queens we've had to put up with in the past.

Well said Elspeth. If the Royal Family allow Parliament to change it's ways now just to please people living in the past, what's to say Parliament won't change the Monarchy in the future without being asked to by the RF? It's a slippery slope when you start bending to the press.

Rather the british like or not Camilla will be queen someday. That will be the out turn.She married their heir-apparent and there is nothing they can do about some people have accepted her as a member of the british royal family while wish she never married Prince Charles.

But you see it isn't for us to decide who Charles married. Your post suggests that the British should be consulted before the Royal Family make any move and that just won't and can't happen. Camilla does the job she's paid to do and she does it well. She looks good on the magazines and she makes Charles more acceptable because he's happier with her than without her. When the time comes, she'll let the coronation etc be Charles's day and it'll be very much about King Charles not about Queen Camilla.

Next Star you are going back and forth with what your saying. First you say they should have a law to make Camilla the Princess Consort and not the Queen. Now your saying that the British people will have to deal with it that she will be Queen. Your not making any sense.

First Of all I know the british people can not tell Prince Charles who he can marry or not mary that is his choice and not mine or anyone elses. And second I cant do anything about her begining named Princess Consort tho I would like to the law is that when a heir-apparent inherits the throne he will be crowned King so that means Camilla will be Queen rather I like or not.

I, like many people want Camilla to be Queen when Charles becomes King. Who are these 'many people' you talk about?

I am also very happy that Charles has finally married the woman he loves and who loves him!

Me too. I am happy that Prince Charles married for love this time and he seemed to have found his peace and contentment in Camilla. I want King Charles because he can contribute more to the monarchy and the society and I would like to have a Queen Camilla to stand beside her husband to support him and encourage him.

Charles married Camilla with the approval of The Queen and The Prime Minister, not to mention the support of Princes William and Harry. It would be ridiculous if she did not become Queen when Charles ascends the throne.

If she's good enough to be a Royal Highness and Princess of Wales, then she's good enough to be Queen Consort.
