Kate may not become Queen Consort with Prince William if Camilla is made Princess Consort, royal historian Marlene Koenig has claimed. On the topic of whether the Duchess of Cornwall would receive the Queen title when Prince Charles becomes King, Ms Koenig said it would be a “terrible precedent” if she was only a princess. Speaking to Express.co.uk, the royal expert said: “There’s no law, it is a tradition that the wife of the King is the Queen.
“I find it personally ridiculous. I think it would sort a terrible precedent for example if Camilla is Princess Consort then why should Catherine be Queen consort?
“I find it very telling that Queen Elizabeth II made an announcement a couple of years naming Camilla and William to The Privy Council.
“There’s a very good reason for that in the case of Camilla that makes it possible that she will be present at The Accession Council when Charles is proclaimed King.
“Why shouldn’t she be Queen?

“There’s no legislation needed, it’s just tradition.
“As time goes by, I think we should just accept that she is his wife.
“She has done an amazing job taking on different charities and patronages.
“Why should she just be treated as his equal?
Royal researcher Bob Morris explained that she will be Queen but may not be crowned at the same time as Charles.
Speaking to Express.co.uk, Mr Morris said: “She will be Queen, how she is described is another matter.
“I think Kensington Palace reasonably denied that she will be known as Queen but in law she is Queen.
“Whether or not she is crowned with Prince Charles when he becomes King is not the necessary thing.
“The law was decided in 1820 and the Queen had no right to a coronation.
“Charles may or may not prefer for her to keep a more low-key title like, Queen consort.”
