"There were lots of debutantes working for us, even Camilla," designer Imogen Taylor said. "She worked for us for a moment but got the sack."

Taylor recalled that Camilla didn't have the best experience when she was trying to make it in the business world — especially since Camilla's boss was a tough cookie.

"He would shout and bellow so the whole building heard every word. The Duchess of Cornwall was one assistant who fell victim to one of tantrums. I think she came in late having been to a dance," Taylor wrote in a book called On the Fringe — A Life in Decorating.

Camilla was spotted at many parties in the '60s, and she later met her first husband, Andrew Parker-Bowles.

The two later split in 1995, and she went on to marry Prince Charles in 2005.

Now that Queen Elizabeth has been having health issues, Camilla may step in more going forward, which may be an adjustment.

"She is a normal woman who, because of her relationship with Charles, has found herself in an abnormal situation," expert Penny Junor claimed. "I don't think titles do it for her, and the prospect of being Queen or Princess Consort, the fuss there will be at the time, the comparisons to Diana, it will be a very difficult time for her."

If the matriarch, 95, can't perform her duties "due to illness or absence abroad," one of the Counsellors of State will fill in for her. Prince Charles, Prince Andrew, Prince William and Prince Harry are the Counsellors of State, as they are the first four people in the line of succession. However since Harry, 37, is located in the U.S. and Andrew is dealing with his sexual assault case, the Queen could bring in other people to help.

"A Counsellor not domiciled in the U.K. cannot act, so that excludes Harry," royal author Vernon Bogdanor told the Daily Mail. "The next in line and over the required age of 21 would be Princess Beatrice."

"The Queen may look to add the Duchess of Cornwall, who would become a Counsellor of State when Charles is King anyway," he said. "Or they could go down the line to Princesses Beatrice or Eugenie, or add more members of the family, like Princess Anne or Prince Edward to the list."
