King Charles allegedly blackmailed Queen Elizabeth into giving his wife, Camilla the title of Queen Consort.

A source told National Enquirer that King Charles just had to get it done because it takes a lot to make his wife happy. And he knew that being styled queen consort instead of princess consort is what the mom of two wants the most.

“It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to keep conniving Camilla happy – and Charles seized it. I’m told Charles knew Her Majesty was desperate to get Andrew off the hook at any cost and he named his price to do it,” the source said.

Royal author Christopher Andersen also made a similar claim in his book The King: The Life of Charles III. He said that King Charles needed the queen to endorse Camilla as a queen consort around the time of her Platinum Jubilee. So, he grabbed the opportunity knowing that it could one day be too late.

However, the source also claimed that some members of the royal family were surprised by how quickly the queen announced her wish for Camilla to be known as the queen consort. And no one saw it coming.

“They didn’t have a clue this was coming. Now we know the truth. Charles apparently realized the millions Her Majesty wanted to spend to bail out Andrew would effectively come out of his own inheritance – and he made his mother an offer too dangerous to ignore. If Her Majesty refused his proposal, Charles would reject Andrew’s settlement deal, plunging the royals into yet another scandal,” the source said.

The source added that King Charles’ back was against the wall when he spoke to the queen because Camilla demanded to get a favorable response. In fact, she allegedly threatened to leave King Charles if things wouldn’t be in her favor.

However, one should take the tabloid’s claims with a grain of salt. It’s not true that King Charles blackmailed the queen into giving Camilla the title of queen consort.

In her statement, the queen made it clear that the request came from her. And it had nothing to do with bailing Prince Andrew out, using King Charles’ inheritance, or because of Camilla’s alleged threats.

All these were just made up by the tabloid and they are baseless.
