Queen Camilla, Prince Charles’s wife, will add to the royal family’s legacy and alter British history.
When Prince Charles ascends to the throne, Camilla will be the world’s oldest Queen Consort or Princess Consort.
Tomorrow is the 74th birthday of the Duchess of Cornwall. She will be the oldest Queen Consort or Princess Consort in history when Charles, 72, becomes King.
Alexandra of Denmark, who was 56 when her husband Edward VII rose to the throne, now holds the record.
Charles is the successor to the throne with the longest reign.
When he was three years old, he was named heir apparent.
Over the years, there has been much speculation about whether Camilla will be acknowledged as Queen Consort when Charles becomes King.
Following widespread outcry over the late Princess Diana, Clarence House has always stated that she will be Princess Consort when the time comes.
However, royal biographer Penny Junor believes Charles would want the full title for his wife.
“My guess is yes,” the royal novelist previously told This website when asked if Charles would like Camilla to be Queen Consort.
“I’m aware that Clarence House has repeatedly stated that there are no intentions for that at all.
“I believe he is quite proud of her, he is thankful to her, and she has performed admirably as his wife.
“And I believe calling her Princess Consort would be incongruent with everything.
“A Princess Consort has never existed before. She’s his Queen Consort if she’s his wife.”
Ms Junor went on to say that Camilla is a “really positive thing” for Charles, the heir to the throne.
“I think she has given him confidence that he has never really had before,” she said.
“And she’s someone who cares about him and loves him in a manner that I don’t believe he’s ever felt loved by anyone else, with the possible exception of his grandma.
“As a result, it’s a very sincere relationship.”
After dating in the early 1970s, Charles and Camilla have been together for decades.
In 1973, Camilla married Andrew Parker Bowles, and in 1981, Charles married Diana.
Both marriages, however, ended in divorce.
Camilla and Charles married in 2005, and they just celebrated their 16th wedding anniversary earlier this year.
