To say that the British Royal family has issues would be to say nothing. Camilla has always had a bit of a rough relationship with the British people. She and Charles started way back, even before Diana was all the rage, and you can imagine the people were none too happy that Charles was cheating on everyone’s favorite princess. When she tragically passed in Paris, Charles wasted almost no time tying the knot with Camilla, but that doesn’t mean the people got over Diana as fast as he did.
And while Camilla has been trying her darndest to make people forget about Diana ever since that horrible night, it’s never really going to work out for her. Sure, she’s an accepted member of the British Royal Family now and essentially the current Queen, but deep down, she’ll always be the “not Diana” chick.
Now, to delve a bit deeper into why this may be, let’s look back at their Royal history. Prince Charles and Camilla met in 1971. And even though Camilla was not a 10/10, Charles liked her immediately. She laughed at his unfunny jokes and did not try to slither her way into the family like the other girls. And Charles seems to have fallen seriously in love. Camilla did not plan for this fling to be more than a simple affair, as she already had a boyfriend, but not everything goes according to what we want.
The prince’s mother, Queen Elizabeth II, found out about this affair and was not happy about it. So instead of trying to understand what Charles liked about Camilla, the Queen did what every mother would do — find his perfect son a perfect lady. Even though the “perfect son” had already hit 30, he was in no hurry to get married.
Eventually, Queen Elizabeth II chose Diana Spencer as her daughter-in-law. The prince cried during the wedding. Some say those were not tears of joy but tears of sorrow, for he would never see his beloved Camilla ever again. Well, that marriage didn’t last long, as in 1978, the prince started seeing Camilla on the side again. Perhaps they would have continued to meet in secrecy if the Royal family had not discovered their affair.
The young prince publicly announced that he was dating Camilla in 1994, and on August 28, 1996, Diana and Charles officially separated. After thirty years of waiting, Prince Charles and Camilla finally got married.
As you can see, their path to the stars was not easy, but Charles’s sons love Camilla. Despite the public opinion about the new Queen Consort, she has been through a lot, and what’s worse, there are rumors that she’s leaving Charles soon.
What could this all be about?
