Camilla Parker Bowles, from scandal the queen consort: who is Charles’ wife

With Charles, the new king also changes the title of his wife, Camilla, who, from now on, will be Her Majesty the Queen Consort (formerly Her Majesty the Duchess of Cornwall). As announced by the Royal Family, the Queen Consort “supports her husband, the former Prince of Wales, now His Majesty the King, in carrying out his work and duties, as well as carrying out public engagements on behalf of charities. .

That of Queen Consort is the last, in chronological order, of the roles that Camilla, born Camilla Rosemary Shand on July 17, 1947, played in the many years she spent at King Charles’ side. A relationship that began in the early 70s that is very unconventional, at least by the standards of the royal family. Carlo and Camilla met during a polo match in 1970 and began dating, only to end the relationship shortly after when Carlo joined the Royal Navy.

Camilla married Andrew Parker Bowles in 1973, while in 1981 Charles married Princess Diana. Camilla, as royal biographers recount, attended the wedding causing one of the numerous quarrels between Charles and Diana, in particular when Lady D discovered a necklace intended for Camilla among the wedding gifts. Carlo and Camilla, as the tabloids chronicle tell, even after their respective marriages they continued to maintain very close relationships until, in 1993, the relationship came out on account of a private conversation between the two lovers published by the Mirror, resulting in a judicial scandal. . Their divorces are almost inevitable.

Officially, Carlo and Camilla made their relationship public just a year after Diana’s death in 1997, only to get married in 2005. It was only in 2017 that Camilla confessed, in an interview with the Mail on Sunday, the difficulties passed after the scandal of the clandestine relationship with Carlo and the resulting media treatment: “It was a deeply unpleasant period that I wouldn’t want to let even my worst enemy go through,” Camilla explained. All forgotten, or almost, thanks to the true consecration of the ex-Mrs. Bowles by Queen Elizabeth who, last February, on the occasion of her 70th anniversary of reign, expressed the wish that Camilla would adopt the title of queen consort when Charles was crowned king. That time has come. Charles is the new king and Camilla is her queen.
