Prince Charles stirs speculation that his wife Camilla may take the title of queen of England when Charles becomes king. When Prince William, who is third in line to the thrown, Â announced this week that he will marry Kate Middleton who is a commoner, Prince Charles made comments alluding to the fact that Camilla may be called queen as well.Â
Some royal watchers are concerned that a commoner like Kate Middleton who has no royal blood will become queen, so what about Camilla?
"Camilla legally will be queen if Charles takes the throne, but when the couple married in 2005 officials said she planned to adopt the title Princess Consort rather than the more traditional Queen Consort." Now, Prince Charles has indicated that Camilla may take the role of queen. After all, who could stop them?
The difference between Camilla and Kate Middleton is many people hate Camilla for what they see as Camilla stealing Prince Charles from Princess Diana. Camilla even did not take the title of former Duchess of Wales because it belonged to Diana, but now, for her to be queen would add salt to the wound.Â
Americans may view the whole debate as frivolous, but isn't the queen supposed to be royal, or what's the point? Is this watering down royalty, so to speak?
