Congratulations! Maybe time to take a rest and let your son take the reigns?

Preferably the grandson. I frankly think she should abdicate in favor of William and not Prince Charles

She will never abdicate. Her sense of duty is way too strong. Dread the day Camilla becomes Queen cos most of the British public do not accept her.

The Archbishop of Canterbury will never crown Camilla. Of course, Charles might pull a Napoleon, who snatched the crown from the Pope and put it on Josephine's head himself.

She will still have the title of Queen. Unlike her popular nickname 'Horse Face.'

My understand was that the monarch is the head of the Church of England. Why would the king need the archbishop of Canterbury's permission? I would think that the archbishop must do as the king says. Or off to the Tower of London for the hapless archbishop. Or am I wrong?

I thought Elton John was the queen of England.

OK. But then who would be the Queen of Canada, Australia, Jamaica, and all those other places?

I was happier when we were obsessing over The Container Store.......... But a nice set of stackable containers might make a lovely gift for Queenie ? She can keep the crown jewels fresh in her Freezer...

The coronation is a religious ceremony, and it is well known that the church hierarchy object to crowning Camilla as Queen (they were actually married in a civil ceremony, followed later by a simple blessing from the Archbishop). In fact, at the time of her marriage to Charles, it was announced that she would be styled the "Princess Consort," in the same way that Queen Victoria's husband Albert was called the Prince Consort rather than King. Caroline of Brunswick was married to but separated from George IV at the time of his coronation, and though she showed up and demanded to be crowned Queen, she was refused entry to the ceremony, so she was never crowned Queen.

A Queen's husband is always a Prince Consort but a king's wife is always a queen. The so called title Princess Consort has been quietly dropped as the British Constitution does not include it.

By law, Camilla will automatically take the title of “Her Majesty The Queen” as soon as Prince Charles becomes King. The proposed title of Princess Consort has never been used in Britain before and has little precedent elsewhere in the world.

 

“An act of parliament would be required to reduce Camilla’s title from Queen to Princess Consort and many warn such a move could create a dangerous precedent for future use
