It is a very nice gift for the end of the year for Camilla Parker Bowles. The wife of Prince Charles was appointed by Queen Elizabeth II on Friday, December 31, 2021, of the Order of the Garter. “Her Majesty The Queen was delighted to appoint Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall (…) as Lady Royal of the Most Noble Order of the Garter,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement, which People took on the echo. The queen took the decision of this appointment, without asking the opinion of the Prime Minister, since she does not have the obligation to do so. With this distinction, Camilla Parker Bowles is in the same rank as the children of the queen. At 74, it is an honor for her to finally obtain this rank after it took years to find her place in the British royal family.
She came after Lady Diana, who was very popular in the hearts of the British. Even though she and Prince Charles have always been in love, their relationship was not welcome. But over the years, the Duchess of Cornwall has managed to find her place and reach the hearts of sovereigns by increasing the commitments and positions taken in favor of the most disadvantaged. As Queen Elizabeth II, 95, has stepped back for health reasons, Camilla Parker Bowles is increasingly taking center stage.
Camilla Parker Bowles has been the wife of Prince Charles since 2005
Since 2005, she has been the wife of Prince Charles. The lovebirds were married in a very discreet ceremony where even the queen was absent. This re-marriage was not really well regarded within royalty. Moreover, the status of Camilla is the subject of many discussions to know if she will become queen consort or princess consort when her husband takes the throne.
