Royal shock: Camilla forced to revolutionise whole life to ‘keep up’ with Prince Charles


THE Duchess of Cornwall has been praised for the way she adapted during her marriage to Prince Charles.

During the Channel 5 documentary ‘Charles and Camilla: King and Queen in waiting’, royal experts Kate Nicholl and Angela Levin discussed the Duchess of Cornwall’s growth as a member of the Royal Family. Ms Levin stated that Camilla had to learn to work very hard at the age of 60 in order to keep up with Prince Charles. 

Ms Nicholl said: “Once she had married into the Royal Family she became Charles consort.

“She was there with him on royal engagements, she accompanied him on royal tours and actually Camilla proved to be incredibly popular.

“She did her own PR, she didn’t need a spin doctor, she did what she does best.

“She engages with people, she has a good relationship with the press.

“She doesn’t upstage the Prince of Wales in any way, they are a great team.”

Ms Levin added: “We have to remember that she didn’t have a job.

“She left school with one O-level and she didn’t have a career.

“She wasn’t a career woman and at the age of 60, she had to learn to work very hard.

“Prince Charles does about 500 engagements a day, he keeps going and works every day of the year including Christmas and Easter.”

Last month Camilla was named as one of the members of the Royal Family who was “stepping up” in Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s absence, by royal commentator Angela Mollard.

During the ROYALS podcast, Angela Mollard and Zoe Burrell discussed Meghan and Harry hunkering down in America during the coronavirus pandemic.

Ms Mollard stated Camilla gets no attention compared to other members in the Royal Family.

Ms Mollard said regarding Harry and Meghan: “I think in terms of them getting back to work they are just hunkering down and enjoying time with their son.

“I imagine knowing the nature of them, they are ambitious people, they will be feeling somewhat constrained.”

Ms Mollard added: “I love that we are about to talk about a member of the Royal Family that basically gets no attention because she has been much criticised in the past, this is Camilla the Duchess of Cornwall.

“My thoughts around her have grown and grown over the last few weeks.”
