Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall's popularity may be skyrocketing after Queen Elizabeth announced she would be called Queen Consort when Prince Charles is King, but it seems like some members of the royal family are less than pleased, including Princess Anne.
"Rumors that Charles may walk back on his promise that Camilla would not be queen has riled Anne to no end, and she’s told both Charles and Camilla as much," a palace insider claimed. “Anne has made it plain that Camilla will never be a true queen in the eyes of the British subjects. Anne wields a lot of power and has a lot of respect in that family, so you will find that the Wessexes, and maybe even the Cambridges, will back her on this. Charles and Camilla will face a lot of pushback."
In early February, the Queen made a lovely announcement about Camilla. “I remain eternally grateful for, and humbled by, the loyalty and affection that you continue to give me," the 95-year-old said in a statement. “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.”
For his part, the 73-year-old was overjoyed about the switch-up.
“On this historic day, my wife and I join you all in congratulating Her Majesty The Queen on the remarkable achievement of serving this nation, the realms and Commonwealth for seventy years," he began. “The Queen’s devotion to the welfare of all her people inspires still greater admiration with each passing year."
“We are deeply conscious of the honour represented by my mother’s wish," he continued. “As we have sought together to serve and support Her Majesty and the people of our communities, my darling wife has been my own steadfast support throughout. The year of this unprecedented Platinum Jubilee brings an opportunity for us all to come together in celebrating the service of The Queen, by whose example we will continue to be led in the years to come.”
