Because of the fact that everyone loves Kate Middleton, and since she can do no wrong in the public eye, everyone is excited to see her become Queen Consort as soon as possible.

However, not only will it be at least 30 more years before she and Prince William take the throne since Queen Elizabeth is 93 and still going strong, and not to mention that the Queen could live longer since the Royal Family comes from excellent genes, everyone seems to forget the fact that Camilla Parker Bowles is next in line for Queen before Katecan be named this major title.

This doesn't mean they won't get a chance to one day both be Queen Consort though. The title of Queen Consort is given to the Queen when she is married to the King. Camilla and Kate will both receive this title one day because Prince Charles is next in line to be the king and is married to Camilla. Kate Middleton is married to Prince William who will be crowned king after his father Charles is done.

Although this is the case, Camilla is not well-liked in the public eye.

For one thing, before Prince Charles married Princess Diana, he met and fell in love with Camilla. Camilla was the one he always truly loved more. However, when he went off to the Navy, she married someone else. Once he came home, because of his age at the time, he was forced to settle down and marry someone fast.

This meant that Charles married Diana because he had to, out of convenience and not love. However, he still loved Camilla and even had a love affair with her while staying married to Diana.

For this very reason, the public didn't take a liking to Camilla at all. They have mostly shunned her from the public eye.

However, there was a messy divorce between Prince Charles and Princess Diana once the scandal came out about his affair with Camilla. Then, Diana tragically died in a car accident because of the paparazzi chasing her car in 1997.

About eight years after this tragedy for the Royal Family, Camilla and Prince Charles got married. They have been married since 2005.

Because of the public shunning her for everything that happened in the past between her and Charles, she is going to have to work harder, once she is Queen, to prove to the public that she is worthy of the title.

Though Camilla will have to work harder, it won't take too much work for Kate to ease into her role as Queen. Even before she married Prince William, when the public first met her while she was dating him for about nine years, everyone loved her immediately.

Then, once she and Prince William got married in 2011, everyone grew to love her even more. For this reason, she will be able to pull right into the role of Queen easily.

Camilla will have to work harder to gain a better reputation. Although it has gotten better over the years, she will have to do a lot of work to improve her reputation before she becomes Queen and during her new role as Queen when it is her turn.
