Queen gave Charles permission to change Camilla’s title in coronation vows 5 years ago | royal | News

Prince Charles, 73, planned to change his coronation vows to include ‘Queen Camila’ five years ago, the Daily Mail has revealed. The Queen, 95, is said to have given her blessing to the move and it was almost officially announced in 2019.

The change would ensure Camilla Parker-Bowles, 74, would become queen consort rather than princess consort when Charles ascends the throne.

A royal source told the Daily Mail: “It’s been something that the Prince of Wales has been concerned about for some time, but the timing had to be right.

“There was a nervousness, they wanted to get it right.

“It’s been a done deal for a while, but the question has been how best to execute it.
