Prince Charles could insist on Camilla inheriting the royal title that should’ve been bestowed on Princess Diana if she were still alive and hadn’t divorced the future king.

Since Princess Diana was Prince Charles’ first legal and official wife, she was supposed to be called queen when Prince Charles takes over the throne. But since Prince Charles is now married to Camilla, she may be the one to inherit the important title.

Initial reports claimed that Camilla would be referred to as princess consort upon Prince Charles’ ascension to the throne. The decision may have been put in place due to a point of sensitivity concerning the late Princess of Wales.

But according to royal commentator Vickie Arbiter, Prince Charles would insist on giving the Duchess of Cornwall a more rightful title. And the reason behind this move is quite surprising.

“Out of sensitivity to Diana, it was announced Camilla would use the Duchess of Cornwall as her official title. Then, comes Charles’ ascension, she would be known as Princess Consort and opposed to Queen Consort,” she told 9Honey.

“Princess Consort remains the official palace line but when the day finally dawns, I suspect Charles will insist his wife adopt her rightful title. To accept anything less would be to admit fault and, this many years on, it strikes me as unnecessarily cautious for Camilla to be Queen Consort in all but name,” she added.

Prince Charles and Camilla tied the knot in a civil ceremony in 2005, which was already several years after Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s divorce, as well as the latter’s divorce. Throughout the year, she has become loved by royal fans because of all of the work she’s done for the royal family.

Arbiter said that in fact, Camilla has instantly become one of the most popular members of the royal family today. However, this doesn’t mean that Princess Diana has already been forgotten by everyone else.
