The relationship between Charles and Camilla became official after Charles and his wife Diana divorced in 1996. A year earlier, Camilla separated from her husband Andrew Parker Bowles.
“It wasn’t easy,” says Camila. Vogue magazine† “I’ve been on probation for a long time. And you have to find a way to live with that. Nobody likes to be looked at all the time, you know, criticized. But I think I’ll get there eventually. I got up above. You have to go on living.”
Diana died a year after her divorce from Charles as a result of a car accident. The mother of Prince William and Prince Harry was very popular with the British people. This and the relationship between Charles and Camilla caused Camilla to receive a lot of criticism.
Camilla says in the interview that the relationship with Charles is sometimes difficult, because they both have a whole agenda. “Sometimes it’s hard, but we always try to see each other,” she says. “Sometimes it’s short, but we love having a cup of tea together to discuss the day. It’s good to catch up.”
“Although I think it’s better to sit together in the same room and read a book. We don’t have to say anything. We’re just together.”
