Camilla Parker Bowles Is Getting A Lot Of Praise For Her First Week On The Job As Queen

British Royal News says that she’s certainly had a whole lot of time to prepare for this new role, right? Camilla has taken on the role of Queen Consort to her husband, King Charles III, with minimum fuss after gradually overcoming public opposition. In fact, she’s even getting a lot of praise for it. Here’s what you need to know.

In his first speech to the nation last week, King Charles III thanked his “darling wife” Camilla for her support. The couple finally married in 2005 after a long-running love affair that was at times adulterous.

“I know she (Camilla) will bring to the demands of her new role the steadfast devotion to duty on which I have come to rely so much,” Charles said in a televised tribute the day after his mother’s death.

Camilla, 75, was at Charles’s side on 8 September when he rushed to the queen’s Scottish residence of Balmoral, where she died that day. Since then, she has been traveling around the UK with the new king, showing herself to be a rock of stability in the royal family: taking part in a brief walkabout outside Buckingham Palace, the proclamation of the new king and trips to Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.

While Camilla is not topping polls on the most popular royals, her approval rating has hugely improved. Last year, fewer than half of the people in Britain wanted her to become queen.

A poll published by YouGov on Tuesday found that 53% now think Camilla will do a good job as consort, while 18% thought she would not. On Friday, those queueing in London to see the queen’s coffin told AFP that they respected Camilla’s support for Charles and had come to appreciate her role.

Camilla has nevertheless faced long-standing dislike from many British people, who see her as morally culpable for being Charles’ mistress during his failed marriage to Diana. She has slowly earned her stripes and won round the queen, who personally recommended that she become known as Queen Consort to Charles.
