I wonder if Camilla Parker-Bowles started drinking so heavily because she is sick of the constant reminders that she is no Princess Diana - not even close to being like her! In case good ole Cami doesn’t understand this the royal family is always right there, ready to remind her. The most recent instance occurred during Camilla and Prince Charles’ extensive trip to India. Queen Elizabeth publicly claims that it’s the equivalent to a 9 day good will mission but behind the scenes this little jaunt is intended to force Cami to put down her flask and dry out.
If the Duchess of Cornwall wanted to see the Taj Mahal up close and personal she was simply out of luck. Any hope of that was dashed thanks to a legendary photo snapped of Diana sitting in front of it nearly two decades ago. Obviously Cami couldn’t be photographed in the same spot so instead she and Charles posed in front of Akshardam temple looking as uncomfortable as ever.
I have to wonder just how badly this trip is going for poor Charles. He’s trying to keep Camilla off the sauce while dredging up Diana references – no doubt his wife’s head has been spinning. Before they left for India there was a divorce war brewing and I really can’t imagine that sobering Camilla up will fix anything. In fact my bet is that her temper is even worse now because she needs that drink! Do you think that this trip will force her to get it together, or will Camilla return home and immediately continue her reign of terror? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
