Do you think Camilla should be crowned queen?

As the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary today, has Camilla won us all over with her style, substance and support?


Ten years ago 7% of the British public thought Camilla should be queen. In a similar poll 10 years later 50% of those polled said they now think Camilla should be queen when Prince Charles comes to the throne.


The past decade has seen perceptions of the former Camilla Parker Bowles transformed to a valued member of the royal “firm” whom half the nation would accept as queen.


It would appear that Prince Charles would like her to be crowned with him by his side and also that Prince William and Prince Harry have accepted her role.


What are your views? Has Camilla won over your heart?

If these two people had been given to freedom to marry the person of their choice many years ago we could have avoided so much drama and tragedy I for one am happy they finally got the partners they were clearly destined for., God bless you both.

Royalty will uphold tradition and Charles will be king but my opinion the role should go to Prince William who is far more in touch with current issues and would have the ability to bring attention to areas that are more relevant to the public .

Agree that if Camilla has any sensitive feelings toward Diana’s sons, she would simply accept Princess Consort, and never Queen consort. She conspired with Charles to deceive his young, innocent wife by committing adultery with her husband, and she tried to stay hidden until Diana stood up for herself and exposed Camilla (and Charles) to the public for the immoral, cruel person that Camilla is. Camilla stole Diana’s husband, Diana’s home, Diana’s titles, Diana’s children, and Diana’s throne. The Queen correctly called Camilla “that Wicked Woman” so NO she does NOT deserve the honor of representing the U.K. and Commonwealth as Queen!

I do not think she should be queen as that causes problems with her children, they should not be princes. I think she should be a consort. like the Duke of Edinburgh .

Why would her children be princes, their father would not be king?

Charles will be crowned King whether we like it or not.

The succession is not governed by moral rectitude, nor by public opinion. It is not an election or a debate about the fittest person to serve the nation and Commonwealth as Head of State.

I can see only two reasons why he may not be crowned king.

First, he signed an abdication document at Christmas 2003 in exchange for being allowed to marry Camilla. Having repeatedly seen footage of his hasty, and very angry departure, from Christmas lunch at Sandringham that year it could be possible.

The other reason is if the Queen lives to 102 years old, like her mother, he may be regarded by the powers that be as too old. He appears not to be in great health and it may be thought by people much grander than us he be prevailed upon to give place to William.

But does William want the throne? Seems not!

No I don't think she should ever be Queen of England. That said, Camilla made a mistake in marrying her first husband, and Charles never should have married poor Diana. I was not her greatest fan, but I do think she was ill used and far too young.
Response from Margaret Hart made on 16th Jul 2018 18:06:18
No I don’t think for one minute she should be crowned Queen. when Charles was divorced the next in line should have passed to William and then this question would not have arisen.

Sorry no.
Response from Mousie made on 29th Jun 2018 23:45:03
Maybe they should have been allowed to marry all those years ago, it didn't happen though.
They both married others, it turned out Camilla married a serial adulterer, Charles and Diana were a disaster from the beginning, he just needed a baby factory who would shut up and live her own life, leaving him to live his life, as so many Princesses and Queens have had to do. Charles' behaviour in expecting a submissive wife and an accommodating mistress is not what people expect in this day and age. Charles and Camilla get on well because she indulges him like a child, she knows well how to keep him happy.
I would say good luck to them if they make each other happy, which they definately seem to, she seems to be a quite nice person, if a bit manipulatve but as to being King and Queen Consort, no I don't think that wil be acceptable. Make them duke and duchess of somewhere and let them enjoy their remaining years but not as reigning monarchs,.
As for Diana I think she was too young, vulnerable and naive and in love with an idea but I think she eventually learned to get what she wanted, even if it wasn't the love and admiration of Charles.

I wouldn't have a problem with her being Queen, if he had enjoyed the same freedom of choice that his sons had when choosing their wives she would have probably been Queen anyway, which in no way denigrates the contribution that Princess Diana made to the modernising of the Royal family but the facts are what they are.

Just how on earth can one accept a whore to be allowed to sit on the throne of England? As for the clown charlie same again if he ever became king that again i would never accept him as my king!
For me he is a utterly a bigger hypocrite than his fancy bit.Can you imagine a young bride to be marrying a prince who turns out to be a philandering nincompoop.
ALL i ask people is to put yourself in Dianna's shoes on her honeymoon with you man ,yet at the other end of the ship is a woman waiting for her share, I mean come on get real it just would not happen would it! So ok if people want to bow and scrape,and fawn at their feet then obviously they cannot be saved there is nothing left for them is there?
I know this opinion will not suit a lot of people will it ,but hey we are in a DEMOCRACY aren't WE!
Response from jeanmark made on 25th Jan 2017 11:11:05
You are right winky, we are entitled to our own opinion and mine is, why does everyone assume Princess Diane was lily white?

I think Camilla has taken to her role with dignity, no tantrums, no demands and just getting on with the job. I certainly do not think she deserves being called a 'whore'.

As for Prince Charles, unfortunately he is human and thus can not be a perfect being. I like them both and think they will do a good job regardless of title.
Response from CaroleAH made on 25th Feb 2017 00:44:29
I agree with you Jeanmark. Apparently, from what we saw and heard in the media, neither of them (Charles or Diana) were blameless in the failure of their relationship. But who are we to judge - nobody knows for certain what went on behind closed doors. Most of it is speculation. In my opinion, Prince Charles will make a good King and Camilla should be crowned as his Consort.

No she shouldn't He will be head of the Church of England which isn't happy with divorce and remarrying
Response from jeanmark made on 8th Jul 2017 12:58:42
Although the Church of England teaches that marriage is for life. It now also recognizes that some marriages sadly do fail and, thus, it seeks to be available for all involved. The Church accepts that, in exceptional circumstances, a divorced person may marry again in church during the lifetime of a former spouse. This is surely the way forward. If you have been abused by a husband (or wife) and seek divorce should you then be punished further by being prevented from remarrying in the sight of God?
Response from AllyW made on 31st Dec 2017 03:55:36
what does the church say about adultery

In my humble opinion Camilla should NEVER be crowned Queen, Charles should be bypassed in favour of Prince William.
Response from jeanmark made on 6th Jul 2017 19:33:59
Why should he be bypassed, he is next in line?
Response from Marie63 made on 8th Jul 2017 04:57:26
everyone is entitled to their own opinion Jeanmark and that just happens to be mine, no offence meant.
Response from jeanmark made on 8th Jul 2017 13:01:54
None taken Marie63 but I am a staunch supporter of Prince Charles and I'm glad he has been able to reconnect and marry his soul mate. I believe she would make a good Queen, she has taken to her role with dignity.
Response from AllyW made on 31st Dec 2017 03:54:34
he should be bypassed because of the drama he caused and I have no problem with him being married to Camilla and don't care they are divorcees but Charles admitted committing adultery with Camilla so that is why. The royal family are supposed to be people we can look up too and to have morals that is immoral

When Charles becomes King I dought Camilla wants the title Queen. This for many people is a emotive subject and no one knows what really went on in the marriage of Charles and Diana. I do not thing either of them behaved in the right way. Sadly Diana is dead, life goes on . Sometimes I think people believe far too much off the stories so called friends of Diana put out.
Response from jeanmark made on 25th Aug 2017 14:55:45
Well put 1BA, my thoughts exactly and people often forget Camilla was his first love. Diana came later and after her sister!

To the Silversurfer's Editor,

Dear sir /madam, are yooo going completely out of your mind ? what medication are yooo on????
To ask some one as my good self " has she won over my heart" There is a saying a Leopard cannot change its spots, Well that apply's still to that Strumpet! I have seen recently that Diana's boy's are talking about the loss they had to endure and one revelation William supposedly revealed was that OUR DIANA had to address that chimpanzee of a husband AS """ SIR """ if it is true how revolting is that? Can you imagine this scenario ((( excuse me SIR is it ok to have some nuptuals tonight ,that is not all then later saying "" thank you SIR """ I feel like vomiting at the very thought.

You mention 10 years ago 7% should be queer/n sorry! now it is running at almost 50 % my reply is there is no accounting for people's stupidity , Whilst i'm on about these royals can some one out there explain to me " Why does the P.M. of the have to go and ask a doddery owd woman can she form a government ,? did we not lop a king's head off for interfering with our politics. Then all that malarkey of getting "dolled" up ,blokes with womens garter's getting the poor horse's pulling them hither and thither not on .

No no and no again, she behaved abominably, the question should be, is Charles fit to be King, he did not behave in any way honourably towards his wife Diana or to his mistress. No strength of character or backbone.I have no respect for them and will become an anti -royalist if he does become king and she be made queen.

Response from Yodama made on 24th Feb 2017 15:49:13
Thanks for your concerns Winky, Doris went through here like a.... well whirlwind, sent garden furniture and dustbins off on a journey again. It happened not so long ago. I ended up in the outer Hebrides and my sandwich I was holding was blown to Hong Kong. Otherwise all is well in this part of the country now. Sun is shining, still a bit windy.
What was it like in your neck of the woods? Hope nothing too bad.
You have a nice day too.

Camilla is married to our next possible King. Give the woman a title of sorts but I'm not sure she deserves to be called our Queen. (Although I feel she carries out more royal duties than Beatrice and Eugene! )

Diana was undoubtedly used by the Royal family, which lost the Royals a lot of public respect and left a bad taste. But Diana was hardly a saint, she did seem to court controversy. Sad, unnecessary ending to a young woman's life though.

There are always two sides to every story and we can only quote what we have read in the the papers at that time, but that doesn't make it fact.

So agree with what you have said Polly-Rae.
