Camilla Parker-Bowles turns 67 years old, but that doesn’t mean that she’s lost her spunk. Being with Prince Charles probably requires a lot of energy, but you can’t help but admire Camilla for getting drunk before her 67th birthday. Most 67-year-olds would be lying down on their beds, reading a book and spending time with their family.
Am I stereotyping? Eeeks. But Camilla still doesn’t fit the stereotype of the normal 67-year-old granny, for obvious reasons. For one, she and Charles toured the Camel Valley vineyard in Cornwall, and surprise, surprise, she got wasted. Okay, maybe not ‘wasted’, but she definitely drank more than her fair share of wine during the tour.
She started off with cider, and then moved on to drinking the wine. Someone from The Express was present during her tour of the winery, and they noted that she was slurring her words and couldn’t stand straight. Then, she started a huge controversy by telling the winemakers, “I still don’t think it should be called British sparkling wine. I think we should come up with a name for British sparkling wine – because it is champagne and it’s very good champagne. It should have a special name. I’m always waiting for people to come up with good ideas.”
Yeah, the locals might be happy about that but the French Champagne wineries aren’t going to be pleased. But that’s Camilla – she and Prince Charles just can’t help themselves from starting controversies and putting their foot in their mouth every time they make a public appearance. It should be hilarious to see them attempt to maneuver diplomatically when Charles takes over the throne.
What do you guys think? Is it appropriate for a woman at Camilla’s age to drink that much? Or is it completely fine, so long as she doesn’t cause a mess? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
