"They have had this deep love since they were both very young. We're talking about a 50-year-plus romance," royal expert Darren Stanton dished.
"They've been in love a long time, and it's been an intense relationship where they've had to overcome a lot. Even looking at pictures of them when they were younger, whenever Camilla was photographed, it's so clear they had this deep intensity for one another, and it has continued to grow," he added.
Stanton continued: "They have the same passion for each other still to this day. During public events, Charles is often looking around and fidgeting when Camilla isn't by his side, which shows how dependent he is on her. But when they are together, we see this genuine laughter shared between them with engaged eye contact, and this shows how they are on the same page emotionally. When he was a young Prince, we rarely saw him display a relaxed nature. Camilla brings that side out of him where he can be himself, let go, and just enjoy his time as King."
Although both are said to have never stopped loving one another, Camilla insisted on marrying Andrew Parker-Bowles in 1973, and the Prince of Wales went on to wed Lady Diana Spencer in 1981. Both couples divorced in 1995 and 1996, respectively, which was followed by Diana's tragic death in a car crash on August 31, 1997. Charles and Camilla finally married on April 9, 2005, at a registry office near Windsor Castle.
"Yes, Camilla had played a pivotal role in the unraveling of our parents’ marriage, and yes, that meant she’d played a role in our mother’s disappearance, but we understood that she’d been trapped like everyone else in the riptide of events. We didn’t blame her, and in fact, we’d gladly forgive her if she could make Pa happy," Harry wrote.
As The Royal Observer previously reported, the Queen refuses to forgive her stepson for what he wrote about her in his autobiography. The Duke of Sussex also claimed that she was "dangerous" and was perfectly happy to sacrifice others and "leave bodies in the street" in her quest to win over the public's admiration. The Queen faced years and years of ridicule and toxic press coverage when Diana, Princess of Wales, called her out in the mid-1990s as the primary cause of her and the then-Prince Charles' split.
