It’s Queen Camilla now.

New information about the coronation has been revealed including the new title for the Queen Consort and a first look at the invitation.

The news comes as Buckingham Palace shared a new photo of King Charles and Camilla as they start the countdown to the coronation that’s just one month away from now on May 6th.

It was taken in the Blue Drawing Room at the Palace and fittingly, Camilla and Charles wore almost matching royal blue outfits.

Camilla wore a stunning blue dress and Charles wore a navy suit with a blue patterned tie.

We know that there’s been a development on Camilla’s title from the coronation invitation that was shared on the Royal’s Twitter account.

The ‘Consort’ has been dropped, making way for her to be known as, Queen Camilla from now on.

According to Hello, a royal source said it “made sense” to call Camilla Queen Consort in the months after Queen Elizabeth death but now it’s just Queen Camilla.

They said: “The coronation is an appropriate time to start using ‘Queen Camilla’ in an official capacity.”

We got a sneak peek of the coronation invite and it’s pretty impressive.

It was designed by Andrew Jamieson and according to the Royal Twitter, the invitation features the “Green Man, an ancient figure from British folklore, symbolic of spring and rebirth”.

It’s all to celebrate the new reign.

Prince George and Camilla’s grandson’s will have major roles to play in the coronation.

Buckingham Palace has revealed that Prince George is one of four Pages of Honour to the King.

Other children taking on the role includes Lord Oliver Cholmondeley (13), Nicholas Barclay (13) and Ralph Tollemache (12) will play key roles in the ceremony.

They are the children of Charles and Camilla’s close family friends.

The Queen’s Pages of Honour’s will be her grandson’s Gus and Louis Lopes and Freddy Parker Bowles (13) and her great-nephew Arthur Elliot (10).
