Camilla Parker-Bowles wants to be the Queen of England (I mean who doesn’t?) and she has done everything in her power to achieve her goal, until now. When 32-year-old Prince Charles was forced by Queen Elizabeth to marry 20-year-old Diana Frances Spencer, Princess Diana immediately faced a reality that included a married Camilla Parker-Bowles as her husband’s mistress. Charles and Camilla had hooked up while Diana was still a child and she remained his first love throughout their sad marriage. But the heir to the throne had to marry, have children, and ‘settle down,’ said Elizabeth, and Charles obeyed. At least the getting married and having children part…
Time passed for Diana in an extremely unhappy marriage and she did the unthinkable at the time – she took her own extra-marital lovers! Don’t forget that Diana might have been a princess but she also read Ms., Madame Bovary, and maybe even Simone de Beauvoir. In times past the royal men had their mistresses, their wives had a stable boy or three, and everything was pretty much kept on the down-low. Importantly, in the ‘old days’ the media was much respectful and dishonest in their reporting of royal affairs. The monarchy barely survived the resulting scandals as Di and Charles divorced under the ugliest possible conditions.
So here Camilla sits – ready for Queen Elizabeth to move on and leave her Charles as King – but all of sudden Prince William marries commoner Kate Middleton and everyone loves them! Even worse, everyone hates her and thinks Charles a spoiled self-indulgent dolt still bearing guilt for Diana’s tragic life, and death. Not good.
So Camilla ramped up her already excessive boozing and initiated all sorts of plots to undermine Kate whom the nasty old adulteress sees as her rival. But this didn’t go unnoticed by senior royals including the Queen herself. Charles was discreetly informed that his wife’s drinking and hostile behavior towards Kate had to change or else there would be consequences. Camilla’s and Charles’s anxiety reached an unbearable level when Elizabeth let it be known that if Kate could bear a child for her favorite grandson, an heir who would one day ascend the throne, that she would consider bypassing Charles and instead make William King. As GLOBE explains, this prompted Charles to pack Camilla off to an alcohol detox buried away in India masquerading as a holistic health center. But the news that Kate was receiving IVF treatment combined with revelations that her pregnancy could be announced any day sent the panicked dipsomaniac over the edge.
GLOBE explains the ugly situation in the story ‘Camilla Falls Off The Wagon’ available in the current December 10 print edition:
Just three days after finishing the secret detox regime, Camilla fell off the wagon and began boozing with a vengeance after learning the baby dream of her royal rival, Kate, is coming true! I “Charles spent a fortune getting her into a $5000 a night detox clinic and she rewarded him with display after display of binge boozing,” declared one source who traveled with the Royals. “Now she’s gone from bad to worse.”
A friend called from London to break the news that Kate was undergoing IVF treatment to have a baby next year. Says GLOBE source, “Camilla had been convinced Kate wasn’t able to bear children and the longer Prince William’s wife went without a baby, the greater chance that Charles would retain his claim to the throne.”
“Drying out had been hell for Camilla but jealousy over Kate preparing to have a child drove straight her back to the bottle. The Queen is dying and has promised to bypass Charles gave the crown to William if Kate has a baby soon.”
Camilla was locked away to detox, royal sources reveal. It was Charles’s last-ditch attempt to get her to sober up as he tries to keep the Throne from going to his son. “Camilla’s good behavior on the trip became vital if they were to have any chance of winning over the Queen and making her reverse the decision,” says the insider.
But his hopes were soon dashed after Camilla learned Kate was undergoing fertility treatments. “Her immediate reaction was to reach for the bottle in a fit of blind rage,” says the source. “Charles has done everything in his power to rescue the Crown and keep Camilla off the sauce, but she’s out of control and it all seems hopeless. She desperately needs much more help than a secret week-long detox. It seems Kate and William finally have the upper hand.”
There you have it folks. When will Kate and William reveal the baby news? You can be certain that Charles and Camilla won’t be popping any champagne corks over the announcement – although she might just open another bottle of Scotch.
