What is the difference between a queen and a queen?
A person is given the title of queen when he is the ruling monarch. for example, Queen Elizabeth II She was crowned on February 6, 1952, when her father, King George VI, died at the age of 56, giving her the title of Queen Elizabeth.
The next person after Queen Elizabeth II in the line of succession who can inherit the title of Queen is the daughter of Prince William and Kate Middleton – Princess Charlotte. But her older brother, Prince George, ascended the throne before her, and their father, Prince William, accepted him.
The person who is the Queen’s consort is not in line to the throne and will not take the throne if the king dies before him, as this role must be hereditary and cannot be taken over by marriage. Charles, the son of Queen Elizabeth II, became king on September 8, 2022, after the death of his mother. If King Charles passes before his wife Camilla, she will not ascend the throne. His eldest son, Prince William, will ascend the throne as he is next in line of succession, and his wife, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, will be Queen Consort.

The consort has no political power and her main function is to “provide companionship and moral and practical support” to the king, According to the royal website.
The Queen still marries the King in a similar ceremony.
“Unless otherwise decided, the queen is crowned with the king in a similar but simpler ceremony. If the new queen is queen, her mate is not crowned or anointed at the coronation ceremony,” according to the websites.
Is Camilla a queen consort?
After the scandal that arose with Camilla, Princess Diana and Prince Charles, it was determined that once Queen Elizabeth II died, Camilla would not take the title of Queen Consort and instead would be given the title of Princess when her husband became king.
In February 2022, that all changed when Queen Elizabeth announced that when her son Charles became king, Camila will take the title of title queen.
“When my son Charles becomes king at the height of time, I know you will give him and his wife Camilla the same support you have given me; and I sincerely hope, when that time comes, that Camilla will be known as Queen and will continue her faithful service,” said Queen Elizabeth II in a statement.
On September 8, 2022, Queen Elizabeth II passed away, Prince Charles became King Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, became Queen Consort.
