In the years leading up to King Charles’ succession, there was speculation about what his wife Camilla’s title would be when he became monarch.

Camilla technically became the Princess of Wales when she married the king, but she never used the title because it was so closely tied to Princess Diana, as Insider previously reported.

But before she died, the Queen announced she wanted Camilla to be known as Camilla, Queen Consort, and the King confirmed he would follow her wishes by calling Camilla the Queen Consort in the first statement he released after his mother’s death.¬†

Consort is added to Camilla’s title because “Queen” is reserved for female monarchs, like Queen Elizabeth.
