Prince Charles reportedly wants wife Camilla to be known as Queen Camilla




 

Prince Charles just made a telling move as reports claim he intends on calling wife Camilla Parker Bowles "queen" when he becomes king.

According to The Daily Beast, the Prince of Wales' website has deleted a portion of its FAQ page that had proclaimed that, when Charles' mother Queen Elizabeth II dies and he ascends to the throne, his wife would be "known as HRH The Princess Consort" -- instead of Queen Camilla.

In a statement to the outlet, the palace denied that the move indicates that Charles intends to allow Camilla to be called queen.

"Our Frequently Asked Questions are updated regularly," the statement read. "This is one question that Clarence House has not been asked by the public for some time, which is why it no longer features."

When Charles and Camilla married back in 2005, it was announced that she would go by the unprecedented title. Reports indicated that Charles made the agreement in order to receive his mother's blessing for the union, as she's long been considered opposed to calling Camilla "queen."

Camilla's reputation has long been contentious due to her affair with Charles during his marriage to the late Princess Diana.

Despite the agreement and the British public's oftentimes-unsavory opinion of Camilla, Prince Charles reportedly plans on using his power as king to proclaim that she shall be known as Queen Camilla once he ascends to the throne. In fact, the Daily Beast reports that he's spend the better part of the last decade "attempting to backpedal on the promise."

"He will tell [the Accession Council] his choice of regal name, and then he will authoritatively make it clear that his wife is to be known as Queen Camilla," the source said.

Royal biographer Penny Junor told the outlet that she expects Charles to do as such.

"It is odd that they would have taken it down if there was any possibility that she was not ever going to be called anything other than Princess Consort," Junor said. "My feeling is that he has always wanted he to be Queen."

As the outlet explains, the public's reaction may not be as sour as the palace may expect -- but if he tries to make the move in secret, then perhaps it could be.
