“But Harry would never really love her, his mother was supposed to be a queen, and Camilla will always be the woman who led to his parents’ divorce. It will be the first time Harry has not joined his family on the balcony at Buckingham Palace, and I’m sure it’s It will be a difficult moment.”

When Charles and Camilla married in 2005, the couple said she would not use the title Princess of Wales.

“If Charles and Diana had succeeded in this, we would not have been talking in this way,” the royal source said. “Because Charles and Camilla put their needs and their happiness first, we are in an ongoing constitutional stalemate which means that William and Kate are truly the last leaves of Windsor.”

Asked about Prince William and Harry’s thoughts on Camilla, former Vanity Fair editor Tina Brown recently said the telegraph: “William accepted Camilla in terms of what she means to his father. He’s grown up about it. “My father loves this woman, I can’t fight her, so I won’t.” Harry, on the other hand, can’t stand Camilla, he doesn’t want Camilla to become a queen, He’s so angry that this happened. He didn’t make up with her and probably never will.”

In her new book,Palace LeavesBrown quoted a courtier, who said of Harry: “When the younger boy finally prevailed to be in the presence of Mrs. Parker Bowles, he aroused her anger with long silences and smoldering and joyful glances.”

About Camilla and Charles’ love story, Brown said: “Camilla is the one who whispers the horse to him. She perfectly understands his temper. She has the intelligence of an incredible mistress. [emotional intelligence] About when he’s snappy in terms of his attraction if he’s cocky… There’s a little tough love, but it’s always couched with warmth and humour. It’s just like how the Queen Mother was with George VI. She was able to manage it without knowing it was being managed. This is true for Camila. I think it proves Charles in a very healthy way for him. He’s a much more relaxed guy when he’s around her and she makes him laugh. She is a funny woman. And she shares all the interests and friends that Diana never shared with him.”

Brown noted that the Queen is trying not to dwell on the past.

“Diana would have hated the idea of ​​Queen Camilla, there’s no doubt about it,” Brown said. “But it’s 25 years later. The Queen has always been pragmatic and she knows Charles wants Camilla to be Queen. So what the Queen wants to do now is arrange and do whatever she can to help Charles take on the role. It was a very smart part of estate planning to release this. Advertising “.
