A lot is known Camilla parker’s stepsons Prince William and Prince Harry very well. We also know her husband’s ex-wife, Princess Diana, very well. A lot is known, said and written about Camilla and Charles’ love story. However, very little is known about the Duchess of Cornwall Camilla Parker’s first marriage and her children from that marriage. Like Charles, Camilla also has two children (one daughter and one son) from her former marriage with Andrew Parker Bowles. Her son Thomas Parker Bowles is a food writer while her daughter Laura chooses to remain low profile. Her stepbrothers William and Harry attended her wedding as well.
Thomas who is more famously known as Tom had behavioral issues in the past. He was also involved in drug use and abuse. Although Thomas and Laura have to make public appearances (not as much as their stepbrothers) but they are not considered the part of the Royal Family as such. They live very normal lives and receive no coaching from the Royal family how to conduct themselves. Not many people know that Thomas is also the godson of Prince Charles. Even when Camilla and Charles were not in touch he would occasionally call to check on his godson. Thomas is very fond of his godfather Charles and believes he will make a ‘fantastic’ king.
Now coming to the most important yet not much-discussed person in this story Andrew Parker Bowles, Camilla’s ex-husband who has also dated Princess Anne in the past. Perhaps this was the reason that Princess Anne was not too fond of Camilla. Even before the affair started, Andrew and Charles knew each other well. There is no way one can tell what Mr. Parker Bowles thought of his wife and Prince Charles story post their marriage but it can be safely concluded that it was not that easy for him to cope with. The couple divorced in 1995 as a joint decision which was almost the same time when Diana and Charles got divorced.
