Could Camilla be queen?

Could Camilla be queen? Does a new appointment show the Queen approves of this idea? Here the Duchess of Cornwall is seen in Copenhagen, Denmark, as part of a Diamond Jubilee tour. (Photo: Zak Hussein/WENN.com)

On Monday, the Queen appointed Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, to the role of Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order.

It’s an appointment given to those who have served the monarchy.

It’s a move some say shows the Queen approves of her son’s former mistress-turned-wife – and one that could also see Camilla be named queen when Prince Charles takes the throne.

The appointment was made on the anniversary of Camilla and Charles’ wedding – the two married in a small ceremony April 9, 2005. Before that, and even now, she was known as the “other woman” in the marriage of Prince Charles and Princess Diana.

Camilla is, perhaps, one of the hardest working royals. She is constantly attending events, smiling for cameras (while always knowing the editors are hoping for some kind of shot so they can compare her with a horse), and she’s heavily involved in charity work.

She’s also recently stepped out with the Queen and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, ahead of the Diamond Jubilee tours.

Camilla has said in the past she does not want to become queen. Instead, it’s been reported, she wants to become the princess consort if Prince Charles outlives his mother.

I’d like to hear your opinions. Would you want Camilla to be queen?

    That’s all we need to see is her ugly picture on our currency.

    Some people have very short memories. Marriage is a committment and nobody forces such an arrangement. People who cheat on their partner, married or not,
    should be given a “wide berth”. If you know a friend is a deceiver it will not be
    too long before that “friend does the same to you.

    Still it can never happen to you can it?

    Some people think they are soooo perfect. These comments such as” ugly” are just wrong. It says in the bible you who are so perfect cast the first stone and that means anyone, from the world over. you people seem to have SHORT memories of Diana running around too. And Charles’ dad becoming impatient with his not getting married early enough and producing offspring.
    And if you know your history you’d know Charles will be king when and only when his mother the queen dies. When she became queen, she promised for life. Carmilla will likely become queen. It would be up to the government.

    Camilla will actually be Queen Consort when Charles becomes King, just as she is now the Princess of Wales. She simply chooses not to use the latter title, because of lingering feelings about Diana. For those who are “offended” by the idea that Camilla was once Charles’s mistress, I’d urge you to let that go. Charles always loved Camilla and never should have married Diana, a woman he did not love. He was forced to do so because of the traditional notion that he should marry a virgin. Imagine if William were told he could not marry Catherine, but rather some unknown woman ten years his junior. Don’t you think he’d find a way to connect with the woman he loved? And so it was with Charles and Camilla, and I am delighted for them that they finally were able to be married to each other and find happiness and support in each other. She is the woman he chose as his wife, and she should be proud to be known as Queen Consort when the time comes.

    Here here Melissa! I concur with everything you’ve said. I am sick and tired of all the nasty dumping on Prince Charles and the Duchess Camilla. They are good people trying to do their best. It is almost 20 years since Charles and Diana legally separated in 1992, and these matters of marital infidelity go back 20 to 30 years! GET OVER IT! For my part, like the Princes William and Harry, I’ve moved on in life from the 1990s. It’s been 15 years since Princess Diana’s death, and intelligent people have moved on. All of you people harping on the past: get a life! My goodness gracious! Charles & Camilla will make an excellent King & Queen of Canada, and I for one am pleased to know that Camilla has Canadian roots in her ancestry!

    Heny VIII changed wives as often as he pleased and they pretty much all “counted”…so I say let them do whatever they like! Who cares, anyway? They don’t have any real power.

    We can only hope Canada, if not the whole monarchy turns their back on this fetid birthright discrimination and inbreeding that has become iconized for things we at the same time have made illegal in normal circumstances, before that ever happens.

    James – its just another reason I use debit or credit :)
