Prince George will be gearing up for a big day as his official role in King's Coronation has been confirmed.
The 75-year-old could formally be crowned Queen alongside the new King.
A royal source said: “It made sense to refer to Her Majesty as the Queen Consort in the early months of His Majesty’s reign, to distinguish from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
“‘Queen Camilla’ is the appropriate title to set against ‘King Charles’ on the invitation.
“The coronation is an appropriate time to start using ‘Queen Camilla’ in an official capacity.
“All former Queen Consorts have been known as ‘Queen’ plus their first name.”
Future king, Prince George is set to play an important role in the coronation of his grandfather alongside seven schoolboys.
They will all be named as all named as Pages of Honour who will 'attend their majesties during the coronation service'.
"His parents are very excited and delighted that he is a page," a spokesperson for the Prince and Princess of Wales told People.
"It's something that his parents have thought long and hard about and are very much looking forward to.
"And I'm sure George is, too."
The King’s pages will also include Master Nicholas Barclay, 13, grandson of Sarah Troughton one of the Queen’s Companions, Lord Oliver Cholmondeley, 13, son of the Marquess of Cholmondeley also known as film-maker David Rocksavage and a friend of the Prince of Wales, and Master Ralph Tollemache, 12.
The Queen’s Pages of Honour will be her three grandsons, twin boys Master Gus and Master Louis, aged 13, by her daughter Laura Lopes, and 13-year-old Master Freddy, by son Tom Parker Bowles, and her great-nephew, Master Arthur Elliot, 10.
Peregrine Cavendish, the 12th Duke of Devonshire, when aged nine, served as a page during the late Queen’s 1953 coronation.
In an interview with Sotheby’s, he explained what he had to wear: “My uniform, it’s still at Chatsworth, consisted of a pale yellow frock coat with blue cuffs, lace jabot at my throat, cream breeches, white silk stockings - held up by a suspender belt (garter) which I was terrified my school friends would find out about - black pumps with red heels and silver buckles and a sword on its belt.”
The Coronation of His Majesty The King will take place at Westminster Abbey on 6 May.
