With plenty of eyes on The Crown—it does pose for an interesting question.
In an interview with UK's The Times, Tom Parker Bowles (son of Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, and her ex, Andrew Parker Bowles) sat down to discuss whether he believed his mom would eventually be called "Queen." At the same time, the food writer was coy when it came to other Royal family matters.
"I honestly don't know if Mum will be called queen," Tom shared. "That hasn't been decided. There are a lot of interesting Sky documentaries about that I'm sure but I honestly don't know if that's true."
Queen Elizabeth II, the UK's longest-reigning monarch, recently celebrated her 95th birthday, and even released a statement to commemorate the big day. Tragically, however, the milestone came just days after the funeral of her late husband, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
Since Prince Charles is the eldest out the four children the couple shared (including Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, and Prince Edward), he would be presumed next in line for the throne. Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla have been married since April 2005.

Royal Babies Over the Years

And although the 46-year-old is uncertain of what the future holds when it comes his mom's possible title, he has also made it clear he would not be looking for any connection to play out in the hit show The Crown either.


"The Crown is beautifully filmed and beautifully acted but complete bollocks mostly," he stated. "I saw a bit with my dad and thought, ‘God, you've got him wrong,' but I would say that, wouldn't I?"

According to Tom, real life royalty would be considered a bit less dramatic than what we've seen play out on television.
It looks like for this final answer, we'll just have to stay tuned.
