Britain’s Queen Camilla plowed up the mountain of controversy
Britain’s longest-serving monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, breathed her last at Balmoral Palace surrounded by loved ones after 70 years on the throne. He was 96 years old. After the death of Queen Elizabeth II, her eldest son Charles III became King of England according to tradition.
Queen Elizabeth announced earlier this year that her current “queen consort” would be Charles’s wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall. But from ordinary woman to “queen consort”, Camilla had to go through the path of a friend. Especially after Charles’ divorce from the ever-popular Princess Diana, Camellia had to navigate a mountain of controversy to gain acceptance as Charles’ bride.
Over the years, Camilla has been criticized for ruining the royal fairytale romance Charles-Diana. Princess Diana also complained in a 1995 interview with the BBC that “there were three of us in this marriage” – her, Charles and her longtime lover Camilla.
Diana reportedly even referred to her love rival as a “Rottweiler.”
Camilla was born on June 17, 1947 into an aristocratic British family.
Prince Charles first met young Camilla at a polo match in the early 1970s with the confident and attractive Camilla. Later, they became close. However, three years after meeting Charles for the first time, Camilla married Andrew Parker Bowles, a British Army officer, in 1973. Among the royal guests at their wedding were the Queen’s sisters, Princess Margaret and the Princess Anne.
Bowles-Camilla also have two children. However, Camilla and Charles remain attracted to each other. Even after the royal wedding to Princess Diana in 1981, Charles couldn’t forget Camilla.
There were a lot of whispers about Camilla and Charles’ secret romance around this time. Andrew Parker Bowles and Camilla divorced in 1995. A year later, Princess Diana and Charles ended their relationship.
After Diana died in a car accident in Paris in 1997, Charles and Camilla kept their relationship a secret. After that, Charles and Camilla gradually started appearing together in public. It gradually becomes apparent that they are living together as husband and wife.
After months of careful planning, they made their first public appearance in 1999. After that, there is no doubt about their relationship.
At one time, everyone accepted them as a couple. They married in 2005. Queen Elizabeth II was also present at their wedding.
However, even after her marriage to Charles, controversy over Camilla’s title remained. Although traditionally the king’s wife is the queen. But what Camilla’s title would be if Charles became king has been a big question for years. His position in the monarchy has always been a sensitive issue. Camilla’s position in the monarchy as Charles’ second wife has always been a sensitive issue following the death of Princess Diana.
Palace officials have said for years that Camilla is likely to be given the title of “princess consort” rather than the traditional title of “queen consort” if Charles becomes king.
According to palace officials, the title “princess consort” has no precedent in the history of the British monarchy. A similar title “Prince Consort” has only been used once for Queen Victoria’s husband Albert. But when Queen Elizabeth II publicly announced that Camilla would receive the title of ‘Queen Consort’ if her son Prince Charles became king. After that, the debate ended. Camilla will even wear the crown of Kohinoor during Charles’s investiture as king. Source: AFP
