Prince Charles decided years ago that Camilla will be queen and not princess consort when he is king, claims new book
Robert Jobson's new book on Prince Charles is causing a huge stir as Palace secrets are being revealed to the outside world ahead of the book's release. According to his recent revelations, senior former members of the Queen's household believe that she will grant her eldest son, i.e. Prince Charles, the full power to reign while she still lives, simply out of the respect she holds for the institution of monarchy.
The Queen is reportedly already preparing her eldest son to become the monarch in the next three years. As per the Regency Act, once Her Majesty reaches the age of 95, she plans to make her heir Prince Regent, which means he will be king in every sense except in name. The Queen has also been meeting Prince Charles regularly in private for some time to discuss matters of state.
Jobson, who says that the Queen is "practical and unsentimental about her advancing years", writes in 'Charles At Seventy: Thoughts, Hopes And Dreams': "They both view these meetings as crucial for both the smooth running of the country and the eventual succession. In the event of her death or inability to continue through illness, the Queen has ensured that her heir is fully primed and ready to take over."
The Queen embracing the Regency Act, which hasn't been revoked once since 1810, would essentially mean that she is technically still fulfilling her oath to serve her people until her death, while making sure the country has a monarch who is still able to carry out duties. The book also suggests that Prince Charles, with the help of his mother as well as his father, Prince Philip, has already taken over a lot of the monarch's responsibilities.
Another shocking claim made in the book states that Camilla Parker Bowles, who will be HRH the Princess Consort when Charles takes the throne, as per official documents released at the time, would definitely be queen instead, and it was something pre-decided by Charles himself. The official wedding announcement stated: ‘It is intended that Mrs Parker Bowles should use the title HRH the Princess Consort when the Prince of Wales accedes to the throne.’
Jobson wrote, "The critical word in this statement, of course, was 'intended'. What Clarence House was doing was buying time — time for a hostile public to warm up to Camilla.
Prince Charles, however, has always intended her to become his queen consort. According to an inside source, he'd already decided that before their wedding."
Another report says that Prince Charles, in order to tackle a number of social and political issues, clashed with his mother, Queen Elizabeth II.
The new documentary on Netflix, titled, 'The Royal House of Windsor' hears the narrator say, “Prince Charles grew up in her shadow. He’s rebelled against his mother, insisting on a monarchy that is radically different to his mother's."
The narrator, continuing, said, "He is the most outspoken Prince of Wales in the history of the Windsors. As King, he could make or break the dynasty.”
