Queen Elizabeth II Knew Camilla Parker Bowles Being Named Queen Consort Was Going to Be ‘Contentious’

Queen Elizabeth II made a bold move a few months before she died that concerned her daughter-in-law, Camilla Parker Bowles. With the intention of smoothing the transition of sovereign power upon her death, the late queen “put to bed” the friction surrounding the coronation of Camilla, Queen Consort. According to one royal expert, the queen made the move because she knew things were going to be “contentious.”

Camilla Parker Bowles has gone from the ‘other woman’ to queen consort

King Charles III and Camilla first met back in the early 1970s, and the pair briefly dated before they went on to marry different people. She wed Andrew Parker Bowles in 1973 and he married Lady Diana Spencer in 1981. But those who are familiar with royal history know that Charles and Diana’s marriage fell apart as he continued his affair with Camilla in the late 1980s and into the 1990s.
