71% Of People Believe Camilla Shouldn’t Be Charles’s Queen

In our most recent polls, we have discovered some alarming statistics. The one we’re going to discuss in this article is the question ‘Do you think Camilla, Duchess Of Cornwall should become Prince Charles’s Queen?’.

In our poll, we received very alarming results. A few weeks ago, we did an article called “Could Prince Charles Be Skipped And Have William As King?“, it attracted some considerable readers and also sparked some interesting discussion regarding whether Camilla should be made Queen.

We then decided to go away and conduct a poll on the matter to get a broader idea of what people think about the idea of a Queen Camilla being consort to Prince Charles.

When the poll closed today, we reviewed the votes and were shocked at just how many people were point-blank against the idea of Camilla becoming Queen Consort.

Incredibly, 71% of people who voted (out of 127 people who cast a vote) believed that Camilla should not be Prince Charles’s consort. Only 29% were for the idea of Camilla becoming Queen.

A few years ago, Clarence House already said that Camilla would not become Queen upon Prince Charles’s accession to the throne, but assume the rather unusual title of Princess Consort which has never been used in the British Monarchy before. All wives of Kings have always been Queens.

Clarence House is believed to have said this to stave off negative public feeling towards Camilla. Recently Camilla was recorded to have said that it’s still possible she become Queen, which it is.

If she was to become Charles’s Princess Consort, it would mean nothing more than assuming a different title. Officially, unless a change in law was introduced, she’d still be Queen, however she’d assume the title of Princess. Much like now whereas she is officially Princess Of Wales but doesn’t use the title to avoid connotations the title had with the late Diana, Princess Of Wales.

We find it sad that Prince Charles may never see his wife become Queen. We see very little reason why Camilla shouldn’t be Queen.

If you have an opinion on the matter or would like to counter/support anything we’ve said, we’d love to hear it, just enter your comment in the comments box below.

    How very sad that 71% are. We all liked diana but shes gone. Time to move on, let charles have his queen. Where/when did this survey take place? I never knew about it!!

    I admire both Charles and Camilla, but it is appropriate that she should take the title of Princess Consort upon Charles’ accession because he will be head of the church of England, and they are not legally married in the church as long as her former husband still lives. Also, they publicly announced at the time of their civil marriage that she would be Princess Consort, not Queen. Credibility means something, and they should not go back on their word.

    I think it’s time heal wounds. Camilla has tried to bring class to her position.
    I think she has done a good job

    The fact of the matter is that, were she still alive, Diana, Princess of Wales would still never be Queen. HRH The Duchess of Cornwall has acquitted herself quite well as the spouse of HRH The Prince of Wales, and it would be insulting for her not to be acknowledged as Queen should her husband accede to the throne. In fact, I think it’s time to give this gracious woman her due and call her what she is, The Princess of Wales.

    Diana was a pig. Dying was the best thing that she ever did.

    I’m still saddened by the whole Charles/Diana/Camilla matter, but that doesn’t change the fact that the wife of the Prince of Wales is Princess of Wales and the wife of the King is Queen. When Her Majesty, whom God preserve, dies, I’ll be the fist to say, ‘God save King Charles and God bless Queen Camilla’!

    • Royal Central

      Completely agree with this! Diana’s death was a tragedy but it’s time to move on, you’re right Camilla is Prince Charles’s wife and she should be Queen!

      • Elisabeth Bitschnau

        Thank’s for this clear statment for Camilla, she is the women that has made Prince Charles happy and nothing else counts!

  • Elisabeth Bitschnau

    Of course Camilla should become Queen! There is not one reason why not!

  • SheBear Canada

    I think she has proven that she is worthy of the title. She has truly loved Charles for many years, and if he had the right to choose his wife like William did, i think he would have married Camilla in the first place. She has done the job that is expected of her with quiet grace and dignity. Yes Diana did wonderful things for charities, but she was no angel. I really think it is time to put the past in the past, and just let them get on with it.

  • Cynthia

    I don’t see any reason why Camilla needs to be Queen. She is a second wife and is not the mother of his children. When Diana died, nothing was ever going to be the same for the royal family again. I mean, EVER.

  • Laurie Leader

    It would be extremely damaging to the UK monarchy if Camilla became queen, she is unpopular and in the majority view totally unsuitable.
    Please, please, please let us, the people of the UK, bypass the hopeless generation of Charles and Camilla and move on to a breath of fresh air in the form of William and Kate.

  • Westminster

    Mrs. Parker Bowels is the whore who destroyed the marriage of Charles and Diana. They both should be tossed out of the country like rotten garbage.

  • C.C.

    Of course Camilla should be called Consort..she was after all consorting with Charles whilst he was married to Diana!

  • Rachel

    “IF” he becomes…. Don’t count your chickens before they’re hatched. I hope the Queen outlives the wretched petulant Charles. Can He escape the Charles (name) curse? Charles agreed that his mistress would never use the title of queen. It was one of the conditions of his marriage. UNLESS, Charles “the Liar” goes back on his word, something that he HAS done before and there is no reason to believe he wouldn’t do again. Stuart Higgins, a former editor of the Sun, once told that Camilla was the secret informant who provided details of the goings on within Charles and Diana’s marriage – at least once a week, during ten years since 1982. She destroyed William’s mother and any chance she had of a happy family life.
    PS: Stuart Higgins said in Forward, Camilla: Her True Story.

    Very well said, i’m with you on this one, she has more than done what is required of her she deserves the title! :-D
