Queen Camilla Question

Queen Camilla Question was created by MelA
Can someone tell me why Camilla is "Queen" and Philip wasn't called "King" but Prince??
Is Camilla called Queen or Queen Consort.  I, being an American don't know all this.  I just find it hard to call her "Queen".
Thanks for any insight!

Mel
Princes never became kings because they would then out rank their wives who were queens. 

Before Queen Elizabeth  died she decreed that Camilla would be Queen consort.  However invitations to the coronation referred to her as Queen. Presumably the King wished for her to be called that.

Thank you mrsb!  Ok, so a King is higher than a Queen.  Is a Queen Consort less than a Queen?
Like I said, I'm having trouble calling her Queen.
I appreciate your help mrsb!

Queens are either regnant  or consort. A regnant Queen is first in line to the throne  when the previous monarch dies.
A consort queen is married to or marries a king and has less power than a regnant queen as she cannot appoint a Prime Minister, dissolve parliament or create peerages. 
Our late queen's mother was a consort but was referred to as Queen Elizabeth, note the lack of a regnal number. 
Prince Philip was a consort too.

I'm with Mel, can't call her Queen.  Does her Consort title also have something to do with the fact that she is King (gotta get used to that!) Charles' second wife?
Did you get up to watch the Coronation, mrsb?

No it doesn't  Cindy the spouse of a monarch is always a consort. 
Yes I did watch it.
