After months of being known as Queen Consort, Camilla will officially be recognized as The Queen.

The official website for the UK Royal Family, Royal.uk, has updated its website today (May 6) and is now recognizing King Charles III's spouse as The Queen.

The bio for the 75-year-old reads: "Her Majesty The Queen (formerly HRH The Duchess of Cornwall) supports her husband, formerly The Prince of Wales, now His Majesty The King, in carrying out his work and duties. She also undertakes public engagements on behalf of the charities that she supports."

The page continues to refer to Camilla as "The Queen" throughout.

BBC News has also reported that on the front cover of today's order of service, it reads: "The Coronation of Their Majesties King Charles III and Queen Camilla."

"From now on she’ll be officially known as Queen Camilla," the BBC adds. "And we’ll see her crowned beside her husband the King."

Prior to her passing, Queen Elizabeth II expressed her "sincere wish" to have Camilla known as Queen Consort when eldest son Charles became king.

In her Platinum Jubilee message, the Queen wrote: "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."

Per BBC News, "Queen Consort" refers to the spouse of a ruling king.

Today's events mark the first royal coronation since Queen Elizabeth II's in 1953.

During the official crowning at Westminster Abbey, King Charles III will go through a six-part coronation ceremony.

Camilla will then have her own crowning, with the Royal Family website stating: "A Queen Consort is crowned with the King, in a similar, but simpler ceremony."

The last Queen Consort to be crowned alongside a king was the Queen Mother back in 1937 during the coronation of King George VI.
