Camilla to be given Queen mothers crown to wear at Charles coronation

Camilla Parker Bowles is set to receive the Queen Mother's famous, diamond-studded crown when husband Prince Charles takes to the throne.

The new crown comes after The Queen declared it was her "sincere wish" for Camilla to be Queen when Charles is made King.

The Prince made his gratitude to his mum clear, and that he and "darling wife" Camilla "were deeply conscious of the honour represented" by his mother's wish.

The Queen announced recently that the Duchess of Cornwall will become Queen Consort when her husband accedes to the throne.

An historic Accession Day anniversary on Sunday (February 6) began with Prince Charles heralding in the start of the Platinum Jubilee, saying The Queen's "devotion to the welfare of all her people inspires still greater admiration with each passing year".

Her Majesty used the timing of the announcement to say she hoped her daughter-in-law would be fully acknowledged as Queen Consort when Prince Charles succeeds the long-reigning monarch.

Reports have revealed that the decision to announce Camilla as Queen Consort have been in the works since 2019.

A royal source said: "This is something that has been on the Prince of Wales' mind for some time, but the timing had to be right."

They continued: "There was a nervousness, they wanted to get it right. It's been a done deal for some time, but the question has been how best to execute it. You are not going to please everyone."

The changes for Camilla's role as Queen Consort were made clear when palace officials and Clarence House began drafting plans for Charles' coronation.

The Queen Mother's crown, which features 2,800 diamonds, was given to Queen Victoria in 1856 by the Sultan of Turkey, and Camilla is set to receive it too, with the Queen's blessing.

With the crown holding the famous 105-carat Koh-i-Noor diamond in a detachable platinum mount, Prince Charles has been keen to give thanks to Her Majesty, which he did during the opening days of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
