Queen Elizabeth of England has been one of the most stately personages in my lifetime. That being said, the rest of her family is an absolute mess. Word out of England is that Prince Charles’s adulterous mistress, and soon to be wife, will be the next Queen of England, when his mother passes.
LONDON (AP) – In the latest twist in a royal wedding saga that has been full of flip-flops, the British government revealed Monday that like it or not, Britons will have to get used to Queen Camilla.
That’s because Camilla Parker Bowles will, by law, automatically become queen when Charles is crowned.
While the public has come around to supporting the marriage, opinion polls still show strong opposition to Parker Bowles taking the title of queen.
But any attempt to change the rules to bow to popular sentiment would be exceedingly difficult: It would require not only a new law in Britain, but also legislative changes in 15 nations of the Commonwealth.
Announcing his wedding plans last month, Charles said his future wife would be known by the lesser title of Princess Consort when and if he becomes king.
Immediately after their April 8 wedding she will become Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cornwall, and will not be called Princess of Wales – the title used by the late Princess Diana.
This I feel will be the death of the Monarchy for the British Commonwealth.
