King Charles and Camilla, Queen Consort, have a long history together, one that’s both beautiful as much as it is scandalous. People all over the world know the love they bear for one another, though they know equally well about the affair they engaged in during the time Charles was still married to Princess Diana.

The royal couple now take over from Queen Elizabeth in ruling Britain and the Commonwealth. As the years have gone by, Charles has been blessed with children and grandchildren, and by all accounts he’s done his best to have a great relationship with all of them.Of course, now-King Charles cannot just crawl around on the floor, having fun with Prince George, Princess Charlotte, or Prince Louis, like a usual grandfather might be expected to.

But, if reports are to be believed, he has an extraordinary and unusual talent, one which Camilla finally has revealed.

King Charles is becoming increasingly popular among the people of Britain. In September, a YouGov poll showed that more and more people are backing the new monarch. In May, 32 percent thought he would make a good king – the latest poll showed that figure had risen to 63 percent.

Of course, Charles has not always been popular. No, his on-off likability with the public all started when he was married to Diana and engaged in an infamous affair with Camilla.

Camilla & Charles – love story & affair
According to reports, Charles and Camilla’s love story can be traced back to 1972, when they met at a polo match. In the book “Charles and Camilla Portrait of a Love Affair,” author Gyles Brandreth claims that Charles and Camilla were introduced by their mutual friend Lucia Santa Cruz, the daughter of the Chilean ambassador.

The couple dated for a while, but stopped when Charles left to serve in the Royal Navy. By the time he returned, Camilla was involved and engaged to Andrew Parker Bowles.

Bowles and Camilla married in 1973, but Camilla maintained a close and friendly relationship with Charles. Back then, the Prince had begun dating 16-year-old Diana Spencer.

When Diana was introduced to the Bowles couple, Camilla thought the young lady was “sweet and cute” and approved of her. At first, Diana and Camilla got along well. Yet things soon grew uncomfortable.

“I met [Camilla] very early on. I was introduced to the circle, but I was a threat, I was a very young girl, but I was a threat,” Diana explained in the book” Diana: In Her Own Words.

According to Prince Charles’ authorized biography, as quoted by Town & Country, Charles and Camilla’s affair started in 1986. Charles was still married to Princess Diana then. She found out about it – and confronted Camilla.

Things continued as usual, at least from the public’s perspective. But it wasn’t long before Charles and Diana’s fairytale life was over. In 1992, the couple announced their separation, though both continued with their official royal duties. Four years later, in August of 1996, they reached a final agreement for the divorce.

By that stage, things had already reached the ears of the public regarding Charles’s relationship with Camilla.

The public had a hard time accepting that Charles and Diana had divorced. Another who reportedly felt the same way was Queen Elizabeth herself. In 2018, investigative author and journalist Tom Bower claimed that, at first, the Queen didn’t want to have any interaction with Camilla at all.

Prior to Diana’s passing, there was an ongoing campaign to “introduce” Charles and Camilla’s relationship to the public. However, that was promptly abandoned in the wake of Diana’s death.
