Camilla Parker-Bowles is taking credit for saving Prince Charles after all the devastation and heartbreak that he endured after his divorce from Princess Diana. Camilla has been the only person to stick by Charles’ side throughout the years.
Apparently, Charles cried the night before his wedding to Princess Diana and begged Camilla not to wed her own husband Andrew Parker-Bowles in 1973. According to royal author Penny Junor, she spent more than a year following Camilla to get her take on the royal scandal that rocked the British monarchy. Even though she never interviewed Camilla herself, she often spoke to her inner circle of friends about her relationship and marriage with Charles.
Prince Charles reportedly saw Princess Diana’s “dark side” after their engagement and the only person who allegedly knew about it was Camilla. That’s because Charles often confided in Camilla about his troubles. If there was anyone that he could trust at the time, it was Camilla, especially since he considered her to be one of his closest friends.
Of course, everyone knows that Princess Diana always referred to Camilla Parker-Bowles as the third person in her marriage to Prince Charles. She was even appalled when she found out that Charles gave Camilla a special gift the night before their wedding. Throughout the years Charles and Camilla would spend hours on the phone and he would even sometimes send her expansive letters.
It took decades before Prince Charles could marry his one true love Camilla Parker-Bowles. Charles and Camilla married in 2005 and ever since then, he’s been at peace. That’s why Camilla is taking the claim for saving Prince Charles after his devastating divorce from Princess Diana.
Plus, a lot of royal observers would agree that Prince Charles’ marriage with Camilla Parker-Bowles is much different than what he had with Princess Diana. For one, there’s no drama. They’ve managed to stay married for well over a decade now and for the most part still feel comfortable in each other’s company. They often travel and attend royal engagements and public appearances together.
Camilla has managed to stay by Charles’ side. While nobody knows what their marriage really looks like behind closed doors, many royal fans would agree that Charles and Camilla are happy with one another.
