Camilla set for major ‘difficulty’ at Charles’ coronation
A constitutional expert has told the Express that Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall is set for a major “difficulty” at Prince Charles’ coronation.
Professor Vernon Bogdanor at King’s College London claimed to Express.co.uk that Camilla may face a difficulty at the coronation.
He said last year: “One difficulty I think is that, at the coronation, the wife of the King is crowned with the King. That is not statutory.
“There was a case when it wasn’t as long ago as 1821 when George IV, in order to separate from his wife, Queen Caroline, sort of locked the door of Westminster Abbey so she couldn’t get in.
“It is not required, but it has been the custom. If Camilla is not crowned Queen with the King, it may look to some as if she is not quite up to the first class.
“Therefore, I think this is a difficulty. I think the Church’s rules on divorce are much more liberal now and she would be crowned Queen [with Charles].
“My own personal view is she should be, but it depends on public opinion really.”
