KEY POINTS

  • Prince Charles could be an awkward king
  • Camilla will be a fabulous queen consort
  • Camilla will support Prince Charles and soften him 

Prince Charles has been patiently waiting for the time that he would ascend the throne. And even his coronation day comes, there are already some predictions as to the kind of king that he will be.

On the “Royals” podcast, royal commentator Angela Mollard said that since Prince Charles is an awkward man, he will also be an awkward king. Luckily for the heir to the throne, he has the support of his wife, Camilla Parker Bowles, who will soften him.

According to Mollard, Camilla will be a fabulous queen consort to Prince Charles. However, royal fans won’t see that amusing side that they see often.

“But I think they’ll hold onto the reins for a short while, of course, Prince Charles is well into his 70s now. We don’t know how long he’ll live, but I think he needs to be given a chance. There’s a lot of talk about William and Kate leapfrogging, that’s never going to happen. With the law of succession, it just doesn’t happen. Charles will be king, I think he’ll be fabulous,” she said.

Mollard also talked about the Duchess of Cornwall and described her as someone with a naughty wit. The royal commentator said that Camilla and Kate Middleton will most likely not be called a queen. But in casual fashion, they will both receive the title of Queen Camilla and Queen Kate.

“Camilla has done an extraordinary job with how she combines that magnificent sort of naughty wit of hers with the very upright job of being a representative of the Royal Family. She’s really embraced it, she clearly absolutely loves Charles, otherwise, you wouldn’t put yourself up for that kind of life, would you? She, of course, will be his partner and his consort when he becomes king,” Mollard said.

Prince Charles and Camilla have been married for 15 years. There are claims that Camilla won’t accept her queen title as a sign of respect for Princess Diana. However, royal experts said that Prince Charles would insist on her being called Queen Camilla.
