Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall GCVO (Camilla Rosemary; née Shand, previously Parker Bowles; born 17 July 1947) is the second wife of Charles, Prince of Wales, and thus, by her second marriage, shares her husband's titles as Duchess of Cornwall, Duchess of Rothesay, Countess of Chester and Baroness of Renfrew. Although Camilla is also entitled to be called the Princess of Wales because of her marriage to the Prince of Wales, she prefers to be known by the secondary titles of Duchess of Cornwall and Duchess of Rothesay out of respect for her husband's first wife, the late Diana,
Princess of Wales. Camilla could, if royal protocol is kept, assume the title of Queen consort of United Kingdom and sixteen Commonwealth realms in the event of the Prince of Wales succeeding to the throne.[2] Camilla is known as the Duchess of Rothesay in Scotland, and as the Duchess of Cornwall elsewhere.[3]
As the future Supreme Governor of the Church of England, the prospect of Charles marrying a divorcée was seen as controversial, but with the consent of The Church of England, The Parliament, and Queen Elizabeth II, the couple were able to wed.[4]
