    As Prince Philip’s biographer, and as the chairman of one of his favourite charities, I got to know the late Queen’s husband quite well over more than 40 years, and I thought the Duke of Edinburgh was irreplaceable. I was wrong. Observing King Charles III and his Queen Consort travelling to the four corners of the United Kingdom this week, watching them together every step of the way through the difficult, tense and crowded ten days since the Queen died, I see my old boss (and hero) reborn — in Camilla. If we regard the remarkable reign of Elizabeth II as a success — and most of us do — the joint author of that success was Prince Philip. And if Charles III’s reign proves to work out as sure-footedly as it has begun, the co-author of that success will be Camilla.

    This is the touching moment Prince William offers his stepmother Camilla, the Queen Consort, a guiding hand before she signed her husband's declaration. It marks a new era for the Prince of Wales and the Queen Consort after years of a difficult relationship while his mother Princess Diana split from Charles in 1992, and later divorce in 1996. The hugely public breakdown of Charles and Diana's marriage also displayed the frosty relationship between the now-Queen Consort and her stepson. While William and Camilla's relationship was not easy at first or for a number of years after her marriage to his father, he is closer with his stepmother and now especially so after the loss of Queen Elizabeth II.  Today Prince William and Queen Camilla attended the historic ceremony at St James's Palace where King Charles III met with the Accession Council. And as they walked into the hall where they were met with the Archbishop of Canterbury and several senior government officials, the Prince of Wales kindly put his arm out as he walked behind his stepmother, the Queen Consort.
    She wasn't born to be a queen, yet she will be one. She had no desire for a crown, yet she will now wear one. She felt no need for a life embroidered with titles yet, she is now Her Majesty, with all the pomp and pageantry that involves. The journey that has taken the former Mrs Camilla Parker Bowles from mistress to Queen Consort at the side of King Charles has been both remarkable and, at times, brutal. It has meant acquiring a resilience and a sense of purpose that few believed she could possess. Along the way, since her marriage to the Prince of Wales in 2005, she has managed to display a bold and imaginative jauntiness that has been warm, well-received and unthreatening. Now comes an even bigger test. As wife to the monarch where her words and deeds will receive even greater attention, these accomplishments will be ever more necessary. But to be a success in this role she will need more. So how will she approach this daunting new stage in her life, and is...

    Camilla has completed an extraordinary transformation from royal mistress to Her Majesty the Queen. Charles automatically became King on his mother's death and his dutiful second wife is now Queen Consort. There was a time when honouring Camilla with the ultimate royal title would have been controversial with some. Camilla was blamed in some quarters for the breakdown of Charles's marriage to Diana, Princess of Wales. And, when news of their affair first came to light, Camilla faced vitriolic criticism. It took time for the public to accept her following Diana's death in 1997 and when she married Charles in 2005 the subject of her future title was a cause of controversy. At the time, royal aides said Camilla did not want to be known as Queen Consort – even though she was entitled to be. She 'intended' instead, when the time came, to be known as Princess Consort – a title never before used in British history. But so stunning has her transformation been that she is now one of the most popular members of the Royal Family and...
