The Queen’s latest wish for Camilla caused her popularity to soar in recent days and among the recent commotion, searches for “Camilla Parker-Bowles style” exploded, according to Google search data. Searches for the Duchess of Cornwall’s style reportedly surged by 1,500 percent after the Platinum Jubilee ceremony last Sunday, when the 95-year-old monarch proclaimed at the Camillal will become Queen Consort when Prince Charles accedes to the throne.

The Queen chose her Jubilee weekend – the 70th anniversary of her accession to the throne – to make the highly significant announcement and express her desire for her daughter-in-law to be fully acknowledged when Charles succeeds her.

She said: “When, in the fullness of time, my son Charles becomes king, I know you will give him and his wife Camilla the same support that you have given me, and it is my sincere wish that, when the time comes, Camilla will be known as Queen Consort as she continues her own loyal service.”

The Prince of Wales responded by saying he is “deeply conscious of the honour represented by my mother’s wish” for his “darling” wife.

According to the analysis of Google search by creative resource Design Bundles, the searches for “Camilla Parker-Bowles style” exploded to 16 times the average volume, the very day the Queen made the announcement.

A spokesperson for Design Bundles said: “Camilla, the future Queen Consort of England, has carved out a unique place in royal history when it comes to her style and fashion sense.

“Previously eclipsed by her daughters-in-law Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle when it comes to coverage on her choice of clothes, Camilla nevertheless holds her own with a combination of strong, block colours and elegant pastels in the tailored coat dresses and skirt suits she frequently dons.

“The Duchess of Cornwall always makes a fantastic fashion statement with her hats, whose feathers and fascinators offset her smart and demure clothing perfectly.

“The fascination with Camilla Parker Bowles – elicited by Queen Elizabeth’s promise that she will be Queen Consort of England when Charles ascends the throne – suggests that she is a fashion queen in the making, with people newly desperate to copy her style”

On Tuesday, Camilla made her first public appearance since the Queen announced the Duchess would be known as the Queen Consort.

Camilla was raised in East Sussex and South Kensington in England, and was educated in England, Switzerland, and France.

In 1973, she married British Army officer Andrew Parker Bowles, with whom she has two children. They divorced in 1995.

Camilla became romantically involved with Charles both before and during each of their first marriages.

Their relationship became highly publicised in the media and attracted worldwide scrutiny.

As the Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla carries out public engagements, often alongside her husband.
