Camilla Parker Bowles reportedly has a higher position in the monarchy than Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle.

Initially, the Duchess of Cornwall and the Queen reportedly had a frosty relationship. Queen Elizabeth II reportedly even branded Camilla a "wicked woman" and said that she would "have nothing to do with" her. However, their relationship seems to have changed dramatically as it appears that Camilla has overtaken the Duchess of Cambridge and Duchess of Sussex in the Queen's pecking order.

According to Carly Read, a journalist for Express, Camilla has been working hard in the background to prove her commitment to the royal family and it worked. She was given the honor of standing with the Queen and Prince Charles during the Royal British Legion's Festival of Remembrance.

Prince William and Middleton were also in the front row. However, Prince Harry and Markle were pushed to the very back next to the pillar. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex sat behind Prime Minister Theresa May and her husband, Philip, which shocked some royal fans.

In addition, Camilla stood beside Queen Elizabeth II and Middleton in the same balcony on Sunday's Remembrance Day. On the other hand, Markle was photographed in a different veranda with German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier's wife Elke Budenbender.

Many were wondering why the Duchess of Sussex was standing in a different balcony. Others thought that it was due to the size because the balcony look tiny and it couldn't accommodate Queen Elizabeth II, Camilla, Middleton and Markle altogether. However, it was later learned that they were positioned according to a pecking order. Both Middleton and Camilla are wives of future kings, so they stood beside the Queen.

Camilla's position in the royal family has apparently changed. In fact, Queen Elizabeth II recognized her in Her Majesty's speech while giving a toast for Prince Charles' 70th birthday.

"Over his 70 years, Philip and I have seen Charles become a champion of conservation and the arts, a great charitable leader - a dedicated and respected heir to the throne to stand comparison with any in history – and a wonderful father," the Queen said.

"Most of all, sustained by his wife Camilla, he is his own man, passionate and creative. So this toast is to wish a happy birthday to my son, in every respect a duchy original. To you Charles. To the Prince of Wales."

Camilla has finally received the royal family's seal of approval. This is also visible in Prince Charles' official birthday photos.
