573: Camilla

HRH The Queen Consort

Born: 17 July 1947, London, United Kingdom

Previously Known As: Camilla Shand, Camilla Parker-Bowles, and Camilla HRH The Duchess of Cornwall

Camilla did not use the designation Princess of Wales even though she is married to Charles, the former Prince of Wales. Some say this was out of respect to the late Diana, Princess of Wales.

She is the longtime mistress and now wife of Charles III, King of Great Britain after the death of his mother Elizabeth II in September of 2022. Charles and Camilla married in a civil ceremony in 2005. According to the Queen’s official website, she is president or patron to over ninety charities.

Camilla has two children with her previous husband.

I’m sure most everyone is at least somewhat aware of the drama and relationship history between Charles, Camilla, and Diana, so there’s no need to recount it in full here. However, for those interested and don’t already know, Camilla was introduced as a character in season three of Netflix’s huge historical drama hit The Crown.

Camilla assumed the title of Queen Consort when her husband was named King.
