She has been by Queen Elizabeth’s side at two major appearances in recent days, which has renewed speculation about what title Camilla Parker Bowles will take on when her husband eventually ascends the throne and becomes the King of England.

Bowles, who opted out of taking the Princess of Wales title upon her marriage in 2005 out of respect for the late Princess Diana, has long been the subject of speculation when it comes to whether or not she will take the title of Queen Consort when Prince Charles eventually becomes King. While it had been stated in the past that she would not, there have been hints suggesting that may change throughout the years. Now, after accompanying the Queen both at Parliament’s chambers and for the anniversary of the consecration of Westminster Abbey, royal experts are taking it as a sign that she will not only accept the title when the day comes but that she has Her Majesty’s full support in doing so.

“Since all coronations have taken place at Westminster Abbey, this will be interpreted by many as a sign of support for Camilla one day becoming Queen Consort,” Richard Fitzwilliams told Express UK. “In her Diamond Jubilee Year she made Camilla a Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian order, which is in her gift and highly prized and in 2016 she was appointed to the Privy Council which is rare for a member of the Royal Family.”

“Though the idea of Camilla becoming Queen Consort when Charles ascends the thrones still remains unpopular with the public in polls, there is an enormous amount of appreciation for the remarkable and often less publicized work she undertakes as a senior member of the Royal Family,” he added. “It is a fact that she and Charles are indeed, as the Queen said in her speech on their wedding day, using an equine metaphor, in the ‘winners enclosure’ as a couple.”

Despite the fact that she is still not overly popular with members of the public who still blame her for the dissolution of Prince Charles’ marriage to Princess Diana, Parker Bowles has proven in the past to be a valuable part of her husband’s life, and was even supportive in a critical way following Princess Diana’s death, accepting criticism she would also face in an effort to show the man she loved she was there for him during a difficult time.

“That must have been an appalling period for her, and I thought she was courageous and humble and decent,” former staffer Julia Cleverdon said. “He was in agony about it—he really, really was. And the fact that she was prepared to go through all this for him I think, illustrates what an incredibly strong relationship and partnership they’ve had. Knowing a bit about it at that time, when we ever talked about it, he was in genuine agony about what she was putting up with.”
