There could very well be multiple reasons why the higher ups in the royal family and those that run them have accepted Camilla. To be sure, Charles had decided that he was never going to let her go. But a part from that Camilla seems to have a lot of qualities that are admired in a royal mistress, one of them being discretion and not having a need to be in the spotlight, which apparently is something that Kanga did not have.

yeah, Camilla's discretion is a big plus. luckily, Kanga was not involved with Charles after he got married so she did not have too much to talk about (she talked about Charles years after their affair, though). maybe I am naive, but I honestly think Camilla is the only woman Charles has ever truly loved

So is there a thread that organizes in one place the known consorts and mistresses of Prince Charles?

He's quite lucky, isn't he, to have had the playboy lifestyle (British Crown Prince style) and then settled down in time to leave many people with the impression that he's quite a well-behaved, diplomatic sort of chap who mostly just looks on at things from the sidelines.

I had totally forgotten about Kanga until I saw this thread. It's a strange feeling, remembering (for example) how many girlfriends the papers alleged the Prince to have had before he settled upon Diana and whether he was going to give up his more "adult" lifestyle to live with the young Lady Diana. It was riveting and then, from all appearances, Prince Charles gave up Kanga and Camilla and all the other exotic-sounding ladies and become quite the family man.

Wish I'd seen the documentary, as all the details are so very vague in my mind.

The Kanga documentary is somewhere on youtube. I believe you can find it by typing in her name, or it might have been called "Prince Charles' Mistress" I can't recall if that is the exact name.
I guess it is a good thing that Charles essentially was a "sowing his wild oats" type a guy and not like Bill Clinton and JFK who can't seem to keep their pants on.

An interesting photo gallery back-catalog of Charles's female friends, most more recognisable by their maiden names.

In pictures: Prince Charles's relationships - Telegraph


A notable omission is Lucia Santa Cruz, daughter of the then Chilean ambassador to the Court of St James, who was Charles's girlfriend 1968-70.
She was invited to the Royal Wedding in 1981 and Charles and Camilla dropped in for tea while visiting Chile in 2009.

Lucia Santa Cruz was never Prince Charles' lover.

In November of 1994 she sued Jonathan Dimbleby.

Dimbleby publicly apologized and stated he would remove from future editions of the book the paragraph that had been misinterpreted as Charles and Lucia having an intimate relationship.

When the media had her dating Charles she was actually engaged to another man. I believe it is the same man she is now married to. She has known her husband since 1959.

The Kanga documentary was interesting, id heard a blip about her on a Diana doc about her dying soon after she did, so looked her up, such a rough end to her life.

I did enjoy the part her and Camilla dueling over Charles, and their alternate pregnancies had them in fits that the other would get one up on them while with child.

Had some good tidbits on how the upper crust looks at marriages, gives some insights and makes you ask questions about how things all played out with C&D&C&K ^^. Diana wore a few Kanga dresses as a snub to Camilla LOL.

Also depending on how you look at it late 96/1997 was a tough year for women in PoW's life, First Kanga was "pushed/fell" out of a high window at rehab, then Camillas crash in which she ran from the scene claiming that she was scared it was staged an as assassination attempt, before august 31st that year it sounded like crazy talk, then Diana's made her look not so crazy, then Kanga dies of blood poisoning claimed from her bedsores from being confined to a wheelchair a few months later. Sadly by then the nation was all grieved out, her funeral was a sad, poorly attended affair.

That beats the heck out of most actuarial tables I know of, im not going to use the CT word, but makes you think......

The book claims C had affairs with at least a dozen women during this period. I do not know how accurate that claim is. But Andersen is a pretty reliable writer. I recommend you read the book.
3- As far as the world knows, Charles has been faithful to Camilla since the time of her marriage.
At least a dozen, eh, and up to 1996....sounds like good reading :) Camilla better watch out, like the saying goes, when you marry your mistress a job opens up^^

Dale distanced herself from everyone, it wasn't a case of they fell out with her, she ignored them. Very tragic scenario but as we have no idea when Charles and Camilla finally got back together, unlikely. We only have Dale's belief that she and Diana were 'close', after all Diana accused the Highgrove set, Charles' friends of being against her from the start. Two alligned broken hearts, I don't think so!
Ah the royal train story, always love to see the Camilla fans fall over themselves trying to explain that one away.....Diana was being too much of a cautious cat in the courtship I feel to risk the what she felt was the "big prize" by such a foolish endeavor with all the press on her, especially with all the houses of friends they spent weekends at, it would have given her ample chance if she fancied a pre marriage roll in the hay.

But given that many of those weekend visits were at the Parker Bowles place & Charles need for mothering and his once every three week schedule with Camilla, it seems totally something hed ask Camilla to do, plus maybe in Camillas mind if it tanked Diana's chances to boot well bonus marks, only Charles and the actual woman know and they're not talking.

As for Diana wearing the Kanga dress at live aid and maybe others, I agree with the documentary that it was a snub to C&C, in Dianas mind it seemed the enemy of my enemy is my friend, not besties, but someone who might be useful, type of friend.

You do realize that special on Kanga was nothing but fantasy conjecture and filling in gaps with salacious interpretations? They made it sound like there was anything going on between Kanga and Charles past the early 70s and from other sources there wasn't. Its also funny how the special just ignores the other women Charles associated with between 1973 and the emergence of Diana; Amanda, Davina, Jane, Sarah etc. According to this show it was just Camilla vs Kanga until Diana showed up.

well it could be that she's just naturally sensible and discreet or it could be that she's not an idiot. She knows that discretion is prized by the RF and now that a few of C's exes have talked (most haven't) her being ultra discreet even when she was hated and attacked in the papers etc, would definitely make the RF think better of her.
Kanga seems to have been disturbed in her later years, physically and mentally unwell.. I suppose it is kinder to pity her, than to criticise her but her folly in talking would be the very way to get the RF and Charles to ignore her...I have read that during her affair with Charles she did chatter a bit to friends about it...

Did she really?

"Apparently" says it all!

I'm sure if true, someone would have got a pic to the ever-ready-to-pay-press of the day; that kind of thing was indeed mega! ..... Crumbling aristo piles etc to upkeep .....

IIRC it was a private party for a wedding so I doubt if there would be press there. Diana was getting flirty with men in the late 80s, perhaps because she was discovering her sexuality and realising how attractive she was, as she got over her bulimia. Might have been a cover for her real affair with James Hewitt.. also. I doubt if Philip Dunne was her lover, there was problaby only Hewitt, but she liked to flirt...
Charles however was by then well and truly out of love with her, and I think if she had been flrititng to try and attract his attention or make him jealous it just was not going to work. He had given up on the marriage, and was back with Camilla as confidante and mistress.

Only my opinion but I doubt Charles was ever "in love" with Diana, so nothing to fall out of!

He was heading to mid thirties, she was still a teenager and absolutely ready to give her heart - and who better than the Prince of Wales - when they had that meeting on a bale of hay!

Camilla didn't just come and go! She was always the lost one for Charles. If Diana had been older and more pragmatic (and made of ice!), who knows?!

One thing both Kanga and Camilla had with Charles that Diana never had was a close, intimate friendship. It comes from having things in common, an understanding of each other to the point that they can be totally themselves with their friend and the freedom to have a life outside of that friendship.

Even though Kanga and Camilla married other people, they still remained close, personal friends of Charles. Their relationship with Charles was not solely based on physical attraction and lust but something deeper. I just wish that Charles had realized that is what he really needed to have a successful marriage and held out until he found the right woman.

I dont think it was all that great a friendship with Kanga. She remained friendly witht Charles because she was still part of that royal circle, and until she started acting oddly, he was loyal to his friends.. but I think once she became a bit unbalanced, he cooled it rapidly. I dont believe she was on ANYTHING like the same level of friendship iwht him as he had with Camilla.

Yes, I agree. I think the whole romantic period was a lot briefer than with Camilla (before Charles's marriage.) Charles was friendly with Lord Tryon too and went fishing occasionally at his Icelandic fishing lodge. He and Kanga did remain quite good friends and Charles was fond of her, but I think the romance bit had cooled long before his marriage. Poor old Kanga had quite a sad life, all things considered.

Agree, I think that the fact that Diana befriended Kanga at first and bought a dress from her, shows she didn't think of her as a threat. But I read something by K's daughter a while ago, in a newspaper and SHE didn't seem overly sympathetic to her mother...

I read the article too. She was estranged from her mother for months before her death, but I guess that at 17 your mother having mental issues and behaving erratically was rather a lot to cope with, especially when combined with the paraplegia which probably left Kanga feeling very frustrated. Also parents breaking up and remembering rows etc. taints memories. I'd say she was probably closer to her father, who certainly appears to be a very nice person.

Kanga's daughter was being as honest as she could be, I think, and I believe she certainly would have coped and been more understanding had it all happened say five years later.

Its some time since I read the article, well briefly skimmed it, and my memory's bad these days so maybe it is actually a few years ago. But I thought it was very badly bred behaviour on her part. If she was estranged from her mother, it is not something to blab to the papers about. I'm sure it was awful for her, and Kanga was clearly silly at best of times and had become unbalanced.. but it is a private issue. Still the fact that she, K's own daughter, didn't seem to remember her mother fondly, seem to make it likely that Charles probably ended the friendship when she became difficult.
