In a letter marking her “Platinum Jubilee,” which is the 70th anniversary of the Queen’s accession to the throne, the matriarch of the royal family shared her hope for Camilla’s future within the royal family. Camilla wed the Queen’s son, Prince Charles, in 2005.

It is a role I saw my own mother perform during my father’s reign.”

Upon the passing of Prince Charles, Prince William will become king, and his wife Kate Middleton queen regent.

In a 1995 BBC interview, Diana — who had a challenging relationship with the royal family — stated that she , explaining, “I’d like to be a queen of people’s hearts, but I don’t see myself being queen of this country.”
