The relationship between Prince Charles and his present wife, Camilla, was one of the largest scandals involving the British Royal Family, which at the time rocked the monarchy to its core.
When the world and the country learned of their romance, they were both married to other people.
The public disapproved of their connection because they believed Camilla was to blame for the breakup of the heir apparent’s marriage to Lady Di, the princess who captured the hearts of millions of people worldwide, not just Britons.
Diana told Martin Bashir during a televised interview the reasons behind her marriage’s issues, stating, “Well, there were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded.”
Charles and Camilla’s love is obviously genuine because it started before he even met Diana.
Charles is the King of Britain now, and Camilla is the Queen.
Over time, Camilla gained the affection of the British public, and her reputation has only grown. The couple is still happily married and Camilla is the head of state, despite the fact that she used to be afraid to leave her home for fear of the public’s reaction when her affair was revealed.
In an interview with OK Magazine, royal analyst and author of Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall: A Royal Survivor, Angela Levin, stated that once the affair became public, Camilla had to endure “torrents” of hatred from the public. She never even went shopping because her friends ran her errands for her.
It was tough for her because she was represented as the ugliest woman in the world. Levin asserted that because she was frequently called a “rottweiler,” it must have shocked her much that people had such terrible opinions about her.
It was revealed that Charles had been paying for Camilla’s safety for years, or until the couple married in 2005. It’s possible that Charles was unaware of how awful it was for her. Because she wasn’t a part of the Royal Family, Camilla didn’t have protection officers at the time, and he was always traveling for business while putting in a lot of effort for the country and Commonwealth. But until he finally realized, Charles did secure her protection—which he paid for himself,” Levine revealed.
