Jubilee a chance for Brits to get used to idea of ‘Queen Camilla’, says expert

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, is expected to be seen more during the Jubilee as royal courtiers look to make the public “more comfortable” with her being a future Queen, according to a royal expert.

The nation will come together this bank holiday weekend to help celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

The events across the long-weekend are expected to see numerous royals in attendance, including returning former royals Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

However, one royal member is expected to play a bigger role than usual after the Queen gave her blessing for Camilla to be known as Queen Consort when Prince Charles takes the throne.

Speaking on her Ascension Day back in February, Her Majesty, 96, said it was her "sincere wish" that Camilla would have that title.

In a message to the nation, the Queen said: “And 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 that time comes, Camilla will be known as Queen Consort as she continues her own loyal service.”

Kinsey Schofield, founder of To Di For Daily and the To Di For Daily podcast, believes that the Duchess of Cornwall will be seen much more over the weekend following the Queen’s decision as they look for the public to be comfortable with Camilla’s future role.

She said: “I think the Duchess of Cornwall is confident in her relationship with Prince Charles which is ultimately what brings her peace. I don't know if she ever wanted to be Queen as much as she just wanted to be with Prince Charles.

“We will continue to see much more of the Duchess because courtiers want the public to become more comfortable with the idea of Queen Camilla. I don't think it's Camilla that lacks confidence in her role, I think it's the public.”

The Queen celebrates 70 years on the throne this year as she continues to be Britain's longest reigning Monarch.

All eyes will be on Buckingham Palace tomorrow (June 2) as the Royal Family gather on the famous balcony for Trooping the Colour.
