Queen never forgave Camilla for refusing to let Charles and Diana re-kindle their love

The Queen refused to forgive Prince Charles for his affair and was equally angry with Camilla for not allowing him a chance to salvage his marriage to Princess Diana, it has been claimed.

During the summer of 1988, when the family were holidaying at Balmoral Castle, the monarch could no longer contain her disapproval for her son’s extra-marital affair and confronted him about it.

The explosive claims were revealed in ‘Rebel Prince: The Power, Passion and Defiance of Prince Charles’, the latest book by self-styled royal author Tom Bower.

Mr Bower said: “She would not condone his adultery, nor forgive Camilla for not leaving Charles alone to allow his marriage to recover.”

The British journalist alleges that the Prince had approached his mother about the possibility of welcoming Camilla into the royal family – despite being married to Princess Diana.

The monarch was said to react angrily to the request from the first-in-line to the throne and the conversation ended with Charles calling his lover Camilla and, through tears, telling her of the news.

The book focuses on the relationship between the Queen and her daughter-in-law, the Duchess of Cornwall, and claims that after two decades, it has never blossomed.

After Prince Charles married Diana Spencer in 1981 he went on to have an affair with Camilla Parker-Bowles, whom he had known since his single days.

In a TV interview in 1995, when speaking about her troubled relationship with Prince Charles, the Princess famously declared: “Well, there were three of us in the marriage, so it was a bit crowded.”

In 1996 the couple were officially divorced, a year before Diana tragically died in a car crash in Paris.

In 2005 Prince Charles married his long-term partner Camilla in a civil ceremony.

The claims come after the Netflix documentary “The Royal House of Windsor” suggested the Queen Mother had no issue with Charles having an affair.
