How do you know she wasn't?

No, she will be the Consort, not the Queen.

Prince Harry is in the midst of his Jubillee tour, and if you aren't already following The British Monarchy on Facebook, they've got some really nice pictures.

Actually by law she will officially be Queen Consort and therefore be entitled to be known as Queen Camilla - this has already been discussed in the papers over here in the UK in previous years. Charles knew this when he came up with the idea to refer to her as a Princess Consort - some feel he did it deliberately knowing it would take some sort of decree from Parliament to adjust the title of the Consort to the King. The question is by the time he becomes King will people still have the animosity towards Camilla as they did when he first married her? In recent years her profile has improved and many more people are accepting of her now than 5 years ago. If Queen Elizabeth II lives as long as her mother Charles will be in his late 70's before he becomes King and by that time I suspect that Camilla might well be popular enough to be referred to as Queen Camilla. Only time will tell.

He is having a blast and really representing the monarch fantastically!!! All the screaming kids/girls and the comments of some of the young women who are meeting him has truely propelled Harry into being the most eligible batchelor in the UK and commonwealth if not the world at the moment. Good for him :rollin:

Her title would under all normal circumstances be Queen Consort and she would be addressed as Queen. Just like Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother was, and Queen Mary--they were called that because they were married to kings (and the fact that no one really wanted to call a twice-divorced fascist sympathizer "Queen" was a part of why so many people violently opposed Edward VIII marrying Wallis.) So she WOULD be "Queen Camilla" unless they opted not to use the title to appease the Diana fanatics, whom one would hope would have gotten over themselves by that point, but as they're still whining about the Princess of Wales thing apparently not.
