Traditionally royal consorts are known by maiden name. However that is complicated where a consort is a divorceé. In those instances, eg, Wallis Simpson, it is standard to use pre-consort name rather than maiden name, because their maiden name ceased to be used many many years before their marriage to a royal, and they became known publicly by that previous marital name rather than a long forgotten maiden name. For that reason, most historians and genealogists regard it as more accurate to describe the Duchess of Cornwall as Camilla Parker Bowles rather than Camilla Shand, and the Duchess of Windsor as Wallis Simpson rather that Wallis Warfield. I've changed the template to reflect that. FearÉIREANN\(caint) 00:09, 15 February 2006 (UTC)
