After months of going by the title of Queen Consort, Camilla's status has officially been update by the Royal Family.

King Charles III, who has been acting King ever since Queen Elizabeth II passed away in September 2022, will officially be crowned monarch today (6 May) at Westminster Abbey - but he's not the only one getting a name change.

Ahead of the coronation ceremony, the Royal Family has officially updated Camilla's title to Her Majesty The Queen, or Queen Camilla.

When Queen Elizabeth II passed away, it was announced that Camilla would go by the title of Queen Consort.

At first, it was thought that she would go by the title of 'princess consort', though that was later changed to Queen Consort.

The decision was made in order to distinguish Camilla from the late Queen Elizabeth in the months following her passing, but now that Charles' coronation has come, it's the perfect time for Camilla to start going by her new title.

The news of Camilla's title change first broke when Buckingham Palace unveiled their official coronation day invitation, which invited guests to the 'Coronation of Their Majesties King Charles III and Queen Camilla.'

Since then, the official Royal Family website has updated Camilla's page with her new title.

On the page, a description of Queen Camilla reads: "Her Majesty The Queen (formerly HRH The Duchess of Cornwall) supports her husband, formerly The Prince of Wales, now His Majesty The King, in carrying out his work and duties.

"She also undertakes public engagements on behalf of the charities that she supports."

Camilla has been married to Charles since 2005, following which, she became Patron or President of more than 90 charities, with causes ranging from the arts to animal welfare to health and well-being to survivors of rape and sexual assault.

Before her marriage to Charles, Camilla was previously married to Brigadier Andrew Parker Bowles, with whom she shares two children, Thomas Henry and Laura Rose.

Meanwhile, Charles was previously married to the late Princess Diana, with whom he welcomed Prince William and Prince Harry - both of whom will be present at today's coronation service.

Today, Camilla will be crowned Queen at Westminster Abbey in front of a congregation of over 2,000 invited guests.

She and King Charles III will then return to Buckingham Palace in a procession known as The Coronation Procession, accompanied by other members of the Royal Family.
