Major 'change of guard' expected as Duchess of Cornwall Camilla expected to 'step up'

Camilla Parker Bowles could very soon see a “big step up” as part of her role in the royal household.

The Queen has continued to recover in the past two weeks after receiving advice from doctors that led her to cancel appearances at events like COP26.

A statement from Buckingham Palace said: “Doctors have advised her that Her Majesty may continue to perform light desk-based duties during this time, including some virtual audiences, but not official visits.”

The current situation with the Queen has sparked speculation that the Duchess of Cornwall may begin to “rise”.

According to reports, she could soon take on a bigger role as “Councilor of State,” a group of high-ranking royals appointed to fill in when the Queen is unable to perform her official duties.

Speculation has increased because the other advisors besides Charles and William – Prince Andrew and Harry – no longer serve royals.

“The Queen could try to add the Duchess of Cornwall, who would become State Council anyway if Charles were King,” said Bangor University constitutional expert Craig Prescott.

Joe Little, editor-in-chief of Majesty magazine, told AFP that their visibility “will accelerate in the abundance of time.”

“But a lot of people know and are getting to know Camilla now,” he added.

Camilla, 74, also known as the Duchess of Cornwall, will be wife when Charles, 72, takes the throne. William, 39, succeeds the heir to the throne.

Just a few years ago, the “Fab Four” were considered the future of Britain’s most famous family: William and Kate along with his younger brother Harry and his wife Meghan.

But the plans changed dramatically last year when Harry and Meghan moved to the United States.

Like other royals, the coronavirus pandemic forced Camilla into a more public role as the world went online.

But she has confidently taken on the role and won fans, even if in the eyes of some she can never forgive her role in the failure of Charles and Diana’s marriage.

“There are a lot of Camilla supporters out there,” said Mr. Little.

“The feeling is that she’s coping with it very well. She has been a member of the royal family for 16 years, so she has a lot of experience with high-profile things …

“She became very competent there.”
