Prince Charles reportedly has a ‘joke nickname’ for his wife, Camilla, who will be given the title of Queen Consort when he becomes King. 

According to Royal biographer Sally Bedell Smith, the Prince of Wales exchanged a bracelet with his spouse – before his marriage to Princess Diana – and it was engraved with the letters ‘GF,’ meaning ‘Girl Friday’.

In the Royally Obsessed podcast, the Vanity Fair contributing editor and historian explained: “It was a very simple bracelet, a little gold bracelet, with a blue disk on it.

“It just said ‘GF’ and ‘GF’ meant ‘Girl Friday’. That’s what he jokingly called her. It just meant that she was sort of his companion, his helper.”

She continued: “It could have meant that she was his Friday girl too. But ‘Girl Friday’ usually refers to someone who’s a sort of Jill of all trades.

“She could help him out with things, and she was sort of reliable. Camilla would definitely fit that bill.”

It comes shortly after the future Queen Consort recently broke her silence about being given the title by the Queen.

According to Daily Mail Royal editor, Rebecca English, the Duchess of Cornwall commented on the announcement when visiting a Notting Hill community kitchen.

When she was asked by a member of the public how she felt about it, she reportedly replied: “I feel very honoured, very honoured and very touched.”

The news of Camilla’s title was revealed in a statement to mark The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

The 95-year-old said: “And when, in the fullness of time, my son Charles becomes King, I know you will give him and his wife Camilla the same support that you have given me; and it is my sincere wish that, when that time comes, Camilla will be known as Queen Consort as she continues her own loyal service.”
