THE Prince of Wales is to marry Camilla Parker Bowles, it was announced today.
The couple will marry on Friday, April 8, at Windsor Castle, Clarence House said
Mrs Parker Bowles will use the title HRH the Duchess of Cornwall after marriage.
When Charles becomes King, Camilla will not be known as Queen Camilla but as the Princess Consort.
The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh have given the Prince of Wales and Mrs Parker Bowles their "warmest good wishes for their future together".
The move will end years of speculation.
Mrs Parker Bowles's position meant her status was dogged with problems, including her seating at functions away from the heir to the throne.
Last June, Mrs Parker Bowles was mentioned in the Prince's accounts - moving into a new realm of acceptance.
This week, there was controversy over her lifestyle and how it was funded by the Prince.
