The speculations over Camilla Parker-Bowles' future royal title have come to a conclusion. She will become Queen Consort when Prince Charles becomes the King of the United Kingdom.
With her future new honor, Express UK recently discussed what this means for her two children. This is in consideration of them being the senior royals' kids to her first marriage to Andrew Parker-Bowles.
The publication said that Tom Parker-Bowles and Laura Popes could see "several changes" when their mother officially becomes Queen Consort. But, this does not mean they will take on working roles within the Royal Firm as they are not "strictly" members of the British Royal Family.
The two children of Camilla Parker-Bowles reportedly agree to this, with her eldest saying they were "not quite part of the British Royal Family." Tom Parker-Bowles even previously joked about it, noting that they are the "common children" who are "just on the side."
Accordingly, the most possible biggest change would be the public seeing more of them, alongside their respective children, at royal functions and engagements.
The publication pointed out, though, that the two personalities may receive royal titles when Prince Charles decides to do so as a reigning monarch. He may bestow them with peerages, making them an Earl or a Countess.
Nevertheless, it is emphasized there is, also, the unlikelihood of it due to the Prince of Wales' "slimmed-down" approach to the British Monarchy. Hence, he may become reluctant, as well, to issue royal titles.
The talks about the matter come after Queen Elizabeth II expressed her wish for Camilla Parker-Bowles to be known as Queen Consort when Prince Charles ascends to the British Throne. She included the subject in her official message, which became public hours before her official 70th year as a reigning British Monarch.
"It is my sincere wish that, when that time comes, Camilla will be known as Queen Consort as she continues her own loyal service."
In response to the message, the Duke of Cornwall released a statement through social media. He shared that he and his wife are "deeply conscious of the honor" that comes with the monarch's wish.
However, the general public does not seemingly agree with the Queen's wish of Camilla Parker-Bowles becoming Queen Consort in the future. In a YouGov poll from November, only 14 percent of the respondents said that the Duchess of Cornwall should become queen.
Meanwhile, 42 percent believe that she should be Princess Consort, instead. About 26 percent asserted that she should not have any title at all when the Prince of Wales becomes King.
