It’s been nearly 20 years since Princess Diana died and for the first time, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, talked about what it was like when her highly publicized affair with Prince Charles was revealed in a candid interview with The Mail on Sunday's You Magazine. At the time their affair started with the Prince of Wales, he was still married to Diana and she to first husband Andrew Parker-Bowles. It wasn’t easy for Camilla. “I couldn’t really go anywhere. But the children came and went as normal — they just got on with it, and so did great friends,” the 69-year-old said, adding: “It was horrid. It was a deeply unpleasant time and I wouldn’t want to put my worst enemy through it. I couldn’t have survived it without my family.” The Duchess of Cornwall was able to get through the o

Prince Charles will dramatically and unilaterally declare Camilla Parker Bowles to be ‘Queen Camilla’ in the first 24 hours after the death of his mother, an informed source tells the Daily Beast. “They have it all worked out,” the source, who is close to a number of senior royals, told the Daily Beast. “When Charles goes before the Accession Council he will tell them his choice of regal name, and then he will authoritatively make it clear that his wife is to be known as Queen Camilla.” The source says that while the name of the King--almost certainly Charles III although George VII remains a possibility--will be widely announced on the airwaves and in a sequence of traditional proclamations at key locations around the country that day, the fact that Camilla—whose official title is the D

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall may be a member of the British royal family, but she’s more like the French when it comes to her appreciation of wine. Camilla, who is the president of the U.K.’s Vineyard Association, shed some light on the reason behind her interest in the industry during a reception for British winegrowers at Clarence House on Wednesday. “People always ask me how I became involved in it all, well first of all I love wine, but secondly, my father was in the wine business, so I was brought up as a child drinking wine and water rather like the French,” she said. “My grandfather also wrote about wine as did my great-grandfather, so I think it’s very much in my blood and it’s so exciting to see British wine taking off,” she added.

It’s Christmastime at Clarence House! Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, got in the holiday spirit on Wednesday when she welcomed a group of children from Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity, an organization working to improve the lives of seriously ill kids in the U.K. The royal wore a Christmas-ready green dress for the occasion, coordinating perfectly with the tree’s red-and-white decorations and garland. The guests of honor had the chance to hang ornaments and string garland on the tree at Clarence House and have lunch with Camilla at her London home. The afternoon was also hosted in part by Helen & Douglas House, a children’s hospice for which Camilla serves as patron. Working with the charity, 2016 is the eighth year that Camilla has opened up Clarence House’s doors to
