A Royal Family Feud Might Keep Camilla From Becoming Queen

New Idea

Since the 2005 marriage between Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles, rumors have been swirling around of what would become of the pair following Queen Elizabeth II's death.

At 91-years-old, tabloids have been reporting the Queen may abdicate from the throne in favor of her first born son and heir, Charles, but it begs the question, what does it mean for Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall?

While royal experts denounce any claims of an abdication, no one is sure if she'll take the title of "Queen."

When the pair wed more than a decade ago, Camilla was given the title Princess Consort, which would not be upgraded to Queen Consort when Charles eventually inherits the throne.

The official wedding announcement said: “It is intended that Mrs Parker Bowles should use the title HRH the Princess Consort when the Prince of Wales accedes to the throne.”

While it has been reported Charles would like his wife to take the title of queen, he would need the official backing of his sons, which he may not have.

Sources have claimed Prince William and Harry aren't close to the Duchess of Cornwall, and Charles no longer has any influence over his sons.

“He has little influence over the boys these days beyond the fact that he controls their money,” a friend of Prince Charles told Daily Mail.  

"But he’s so absorbed with his own life, with Camilla and the extra work he is accumulating from the Queen and his father, he doesn’t have the time anyway," he added.

This comes on the heels of reports stating William's wife, Kate Middleton, is pushing for her husband to bypass Charles and become the next king of England when Queen Elizabeth dies, which left Camilla furious.

"Camilla has told Charles to 'man up and fight,'" a royal source told Woman's Day magazine. "She’s fuming and has told him it was his destiny to be on the throne."

"Camilla is livid that William could potentially take the throne - and she's pointing the finger of blame firmly on poor Kate," the source added.
