Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

The Queen Consort was raised on a country estate in Plumpton, East Sussex, where she was born in 1946 as Camilla Rosemary Shand.

Before getting married to Andrew Parker Bowles for the first time in 1973, she studied in France and Switzerland. They split up in 1994.

Before they got married in 2005, she knew Charles well and belonged to the same social group. The heir to the kingdom married a divorcee for the first time in history!

When she wed the then-Prince of Wales, she became formally known as the Princess of Wales.

She frequently used the title Duchess of Cornwall, although that was because Princess Diana, the King’s first wife, was more frequently referred to by that title.

Charles succeeded Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as King Charles III, and Camilla assumed the title of Queen Consort.

Are Diana and Camilla related?

Yes, Diana and King Charles are both related to Camilla. The King and Camilla have ancestors in common that date all the way back to the 17th century.

Oddly, they both share a genealogy with the late Princess Diana, going all the way back to King Charles II.

Keep in mind that King Edward VII, King Charles’ great-great-grandfather, had Camilla’s great-grandmother as a mistress.
