(Bloomberg) — The death of Queen Elizabeth II triggered a 10-day mourning period during which many events take place to give the late monarch her final sendoff.

If King Charles dies will Camilla be Queen?
No. King Charles has two sons and five grandchildren. Currently, Prince William is the first in line to be the next King. William’s eldest son, Prince George, is second in line, followed by his sister, Princess Charlotte, and his younger brother, Prince Louis.
What will Camilla be called?
Camilla will be known as Queen Consort, a title that came with Queen Elizabeth II’s blessing after years of contention given sensitivity about her status as Charles’s second wife.

The reigning King’s wife is traditionally crowned queen. Different from Queen Elizabeth II who was the monarch and head of state, Queen Consort doesn’t have sovereign powers. As the UK’s royal family website puts it, Queen Consort is “primarily to provide companionship and moral and practical support to the Monarch”.
