I enjoyed your photos of The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall on their wedding day. Thank you for posting them, Daisys and Diamonds. The Duchess has supported Prince Charles for many years now and performed her royal tasks discreetly and gracefully. I am glad that she and Prince Charles have been granted a chance to be happy.15 years since Prince Charles and Camilia announces their engagement
She sure did look beautiful on her wedding day - as every bride does
A princess doesn't have to be young to be beautiful and i think she looked every bit the princess bride here, finally marrying her handsome prince
This is the first time i ever heard about a bride wearing two dresses
And top marks for Camilia because she has worn this once since
I hope if Prince Charles chooses to make her his Queen then the people will support her as suchI enjoyed your photos of The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall on their wedding day.

Here is a discussion on how she has been viewed historically and why it is now likely that she will one day be able to use her legal title of Queen, rather than "Princess Consort" as was originally proposed, when Prince Charles becomes King. (Legally she would always have been Queen Consort if Charles became King, but the palace did not want to upset the public by using the title of Queen for her while she still inspired great animosity.)
"Before the couple wed in a civil ceremony at Windsor Guildhall, Clarence House announced, 'It is intended that Mrs Parker Bowles should use the title HRH The Princess Consort when The Prince of Wales accedes to The Throne.' At the time, Slate described 'princess consort' as 'a new title created just for Camilla, because crowning her as queen would create PR problems for the royals.'
"Public opinion of Camilla has improved immeasurably in recent years."
"After news of Charles and Camilla's affair broke, many members of the public had an unfavorable opinion of the Duchess of Cornwall. However, in recent years, Camilla has proven herself to be an important (and well-liked) member of the royal family, and as such, the title that she will eventually receive has changed as a result.
'Her image has been transformed, a carefully managed makeover, and they have done a fantastic job rehabilitating her [reputation],' Roddi Vaughan-Thomas, PR executive at OBS Communications, told NBC News in 2017.
Added Melanie Bromley, chief news correspondent at at E!, 'She was not shoved down the public's throat. The palace took baby steps when it came to their public life together.'https://www.today.com/video/new-book-sheds-light-on-prince-charles-relationships-with-diana-and-camilla-912706115938
Vanity Fair wrote in a lengthy profile on the royal couple in 2018, 'According to recent reports, she will eventually become queen consort, the customary title for the wife of a reigning king.' This is also the title that Kate Middleton will receive when Prince William eventually becomes king.
That year, the press noticed that the palace's original 2005 announcement about Camilla's princess consort title was removed from Clarence House's official website. (Granted, a number of other details were also removed at the time.) A spokesperson explained to The Telegraph, 'Our Frequently Asked Questions are updated regularly. This is one question that Clarence House has not been asked by the public for some time, which is why it no longer features.'
While it could be some time before we see Prince Charles on the throne, it's likely that, by his side, Camilla might soon be known as queen consort, instead of duchess or princess."
