the divorced mother of two will be the queen

According to British Government, when HRH Prince Charles succeeds to the throne, the divorced mother of two (referred to as "the Rottweiler" by the Late Princess Diana) will be the Queen automatically.

They will be King and Queen of Australia.

Camilla Parker Bowles will automatically become queen of the United Kingdom and Australia if Prince Charles succeeds to the throne, the British Government says.

Aware of public misgivings over his partner, Charles had previously ruled out the possibility that the divorced mother of two could become queen when he replaces his mother, Queen Elizabeth II.

But the British Government has revealed it would require a change in the law for Parker Bowles not to assume the title of queen.

"She does automatically become queen," a Department for Constitutional Affairs spokeswoman said. "If you wanted to prevent her from becoming queen you would need legislation."

HRH Prince Charles is divorced and is a father of two as well.

It is also reported that Prince Charles privately has always hoped that public opinion would change the opinion in Camilla and possibly a Queen Camilla.

The admission by the Department for Constitutional Affairs contradicts repeated assertions by Clarence House that she will be known only as Princess Consort on her husband’s succession, and not Queen.

Any change to her status may also have to be approved by the 17 parliaments in countries where the new King will be head of state. However, that runs the risk that some countries, such as Australia, Canada and New Zealand, may vote instead to become republics because they could not accept a “Queen Camilla”.

[...]

... any government Bill would not be enacted before the Prince had succeeded to the throne. He privately has always hoped that public opinion would shift in favour of a Queen Camilla.

[...]

Officials privately admitted that they had deliberately used the phrase “intended that” to leave the option open for a Queen Camilla if public opinion shifted in her favour.
