Camilla gave witty response to girl, 8, who asked if shed be Queen 11 years ago

Camilla once gave a quick response when asked by an eight-year-old girl whether she would ever be Queen.

The Queen announced on the eve of her Platinum Jubilee that she wants the Duchess of Cornwall to become Queen Consort when her son Prince Charles becomes King.

Camilla was unsure herself whether she would ever take on the role.

During a visit to a children’s centre, an eight-year-old girl turned to her and asked: "Will you ever be queen?"

In a heartfelt moment, Camilla responded: “You never know."

During her Platinum Jubilee message to the country, Her Majesty outlined her wishes for Camilla to be crowned Queen, as a consort at the Prince of Wales's side.

Charles and Camilla married 17-years-ago, at the time there was a fierce debate about whether she could become Queen.

But the King's wife automatically becomes a Queen Consort under current laws and only a change in legislation would alter that.

According to royal aides at the time, Camilla insisted that she had no intention of being Queen and originally "intended" to be known as Princess Consort.

Any mentions of 'Princess Consort' was removed from Charles's website during a revamp in 2018.

Camilla has gradually taken on a more prominent position within the Royal Family, from riding next to the Queen in her Diamond Jubilee carriage procession to attending the State Opening of Parliament.
