While Prince Charles and Diana divorced in 1996, the Princess of Wales’s tragic death in a car crash in 1997 made his marriage to Camilla impossible at first.
The couple had to wait for another 12 years to tie the knot and finally married on April 9, 2005.
When Camilla first became a member of the Royal Family, the tide of public opinion was firmly against her due to the lasting scandal around her and Prince Charles’s affair.
However, ahead of her 73rd birthday, one royal commentator has looked out how Camilla has won Britons over and touched on the last remaining bit of controversy she faces to this day.

He said: “The public like her. Yet one barrier remains.
“The official line is still that she will become Princess Consort when Charles ascends the throne which is in line with the views of the public in opinion polls through the years.
“If so, he would be the only King not have a queen consort.
“The memory of Diana still affects this pivotal issue.
“It may well be that the recent official clarification of her future status has been linked to the difficulties that the monarchy has faced in recent months.
“The final decision will be Charles’s when he ascends the throne.
“What is certain is that she will bring dedication and commitment to any role which she undertakes.
“She is in good health and fine form, and the nation will wish this remarkable and resilient woman a very happy 73rd birthday on Friday.”
