Did Queen Elizabeth demote Camilla Parker BowlesFrom future queen to future Princess Consort? A tabloid claimed that Bowles was humiliated when the queen made her decision at this time last years. Let’s take another look at the rumor.
Queen Elizabeth Demotes ‘Conniving’ Camilla Parker Bowles?
Twelve months ago, Globe According to reports, Queen Elizabeth was modifying the royal titles and infuriating Camilla Park Bowles in doing so. Apparently, Bowles expected to one day become “Queen Camilla,” but the queen is making sure that never happens. Instead of “queen,” Bowles will assume the title of “princess consort” when Prince Charles takes the throne.
According to the tabloid, the title is a “totally invented name” and it has “never been used in royal history.” And to take even more power away from Bowles, “Her Majesty declared Camilla… has no senior standing in her own right.” But Bowles isn’t taking the change at face value and fully intends to contest the decision. She “would do anything to become Queen Camilla,” an insider dished.
What Will Camilla Parker Bowles’ Title Be?
The tabloid misunderstood almost every aspect of this story. First of all, Queen Elizabeth isn’t making any changes to anyone’s royal titles. Despite this popular narrative in the tabloids, the queen doesn’t have any authority over other people’s titles. That is Parliament’s jurisdiction — not the royals’.
Furthermore, the princess consort title certainly isn’t new. The title has been used by the Monaco royal family for two generations. And even England’s Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha assumed the title prince consort while married to Queen Victoria. Queen Elizabeth certainly didn’t invent the title to demote Bowles.
And Bowles was always going to be a princess-consort. In her and Prince Charles’ wedding announcement, they wrote, “It is intended that Mrs. Parker Bowles should use the title HRH The Princess Consort when The Prince of Wales accedes to The Throne”. And this isn’t the first time Bowles has opted for a lower title. After marrying Charles, she could have assumed the title “Princess of Wales,” but chose not to out of respect for Princess Diana, Charles’ first wife.
Experts believe she could decide to remain queen consort as she will be the Queen for all intents. It remains to be seen. What we do know is that this report about Queen Elizabeth “demoting” Bowles is total nonsense.
The Tabloid On Queen Elizabeth
It’s hard to trust anything the Globe Says about the queen. The magazine claimed that Queen Elizabeth declared bankruptcy last year. The tabloid then claimed that Her Majesty had removed Prince Harry from the succession line. The outlet also reported that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were being sued by Her Majesty for millions. Evidently, the Globe It is not trustworthy when it concerns the Queen of England.
