I do find that theory amusing however, Anne married her 'lover' so she must like Camilla who did the same.
My complex sentence referred to both the fact that Anne and Camilla enjoy many of the same country sports and that Anne would not, or should not, be judgmental of Camilla and Charles as she also had an affair and divorced her husband to marry a long-time lover.

Its the Daily Mail, so I would take any information with a grain of salt. True Charles (and likewise Camilla) doesn't socialize that much with his siblings but I don't that makes it frosty...just that they don't share same interests (at least with Andrew and Edward). And really they are at different stages of their life: Anne has her work, her horses and family, Andrew is searching for something (at least to me) but he has his work and girls (Beatrice and Eugenie who are testing independence) and Edward has his family (and young kids at that) as well as his work.

Different interests in my mind doesn't indicate a frosty relationship. And the DM likes to stir things up.

Well one doesn't look to the DM for consistency. They will write whatever they want depending on their mood and what ever will sell papers.

As for Anne divorcing her husband in 1992 to marry her lover, that sort of overlooks her 1st husband having fathered a child born in 1985 with another woman which was confirmed by a DNA test in 1991.

My guess is that members of the BRF see each other when they can in private but still pursue their separate interests with their own work and their own families and friends......just like the rest of us.

Anne and Camilla have known each other for decades. During the early 70s when Camilla first met and dated Charles with her eye also on Andrew Parker-Bowles, APB was also dating Anne at the time. Being that this is ancient history, I don't think it has any bearing though on the relationship between Anne and Camilla now.

As for Camilla getting along well with Beatrice and Eugenie; well, I should imagine that she has no reason not to.

And although Camilla shares her husband's designation and styles, his nieces are Princesses of the blood let us not forget. A certain degree of courtesy and respect should be extended by any persons who marry into the family.

At one time, wasn't there some kind of a relationship between Anne and Andrew Parker Bowles?

Yes, Anne and APB and Charles and Camilla Shand dated at about the same time. Both Anne and camilla remain on good terms with APB. Camilla even invited APB and his second wife to her wedding to Charles. Everyone seems to have remained on quite good terms.

The feeling I get is that they probably get on reasonably well, but they just don't see one another all that much, apart from big family events - Christmas, Trooping the Colour, Remembrance Sunday etc.

On any given day the RF are scattered all across the UK and even further afield. In comparison, my father's siblings all live within about 20 miles of us but we still don't see much of one another. Every family has its own dynamics and the RF is no different.

Here are the links, Nico.
Finding something on Getty is pretty hard; it has immense photo library, but search parameters can be tricky sometimes.

- Camilla and Anne
- Camilla and Andrew
- Royal Ladies

Thank you to Nico and Artemisia for the pictures. I love the smiles on everyone's faces. Obviously, all parties involved are enjoying themselves as well as their company .

Hear hear.

The media are going to see what they want to see and hear what they want to hear. I found it amusing that there was an article in yesterday's telegraph that was the inevitable anti-Prince Charles article following so many positive ones over the jubilee weekend. The writer accused Clarence House of having selective hearing about any increase in the Prince's popularity.

Clearly selective hearing and vision isn't just restricted to that evil and machiavellian Kremlin-like propaganda machine that is Clarence House (lol).

I think the royal family have accepted the reality of Camilla's relationship and marriage to Charles, they've been given a chance to know her personally and realize she's a great support to Charles.

If some of them have different feelings, they will keep it to themselves and get on with things.

Please note that off topic posts (i.e. William succeeding the Queen, Charles being a terrible husband/father, Diana cheated too, etc) have been deleted as off topic and will continue to be deleted.

This thread is about Camilla's relationships with other members of the Royal Family.

Let's stay on topic.

I have my thoughts and the freedom to express them. I've already realized that there are many cold hearts on this forum. I've worked in politics for many years. I had the privilege to meet Princess Diana when she was in our City.
It must have been very exciting for you to meet Diana when she was in your city.

I assume that you posted in this thread because you wanted to discuss William and Harry's relationship with Camilla.

As you no doubt know, both of them choose to meet Camilla within one year of Diana's death. Keep in mind that they did so even though they were aware of Diana's side of the story. They actually knew her, unlike the fans that may have meet her once and read about her in the tabloids. Since that time, almost everything I have read, including articles written by big Diana fans such as Andrew Morton, indicate that William and Harry have a good relationship with Camilla. All three of them enjoy country sports and Camilla is apparently very witty and fun loving.

I don't know that they are "close" to Camilla. There may be some arguments here and there, but that is only natural in any family relationship, particularly one involving a stepparent. But it has been very obvious for some time that they don't blame Camilla (or Charles) for all of Diana's unhappiness. Unlike some cold-hearted Diana fans, they want their father--and, I think, Camilla--to be happy. They have moved on with their lives over the last 16 years. I like to think that Diana would have done so if she were still alive.

Personally I think William and Harry are realtively close to Camilla. She has attended significant events in their military careers (William's passing out parade at Sandhurst and him getting his wings) which if they didn't want her to be there they could have said and I don't think it would have been a massive issue. Likewise with Camilla being with Charles to visit the new baby cambridge in hospital. If William and Harry didn't want her at their own significant events then she wouldn't be there.

I think The Queen has made a great effort to accept reality and have shown a great of appreciation for the work the Duchess of Cornwall has done as a senior member of the royal family and the happiness she has provided to Charles.

It's pretty much well known that she wasn't fond of Camilla back in the day and even refused to be in the same room with her. A lot has changed since then. I think The Queen is one smart cookie. She is trying to make sure that before she pass on, the "Firm" is more stable than it was in the 90's. Leave the drama behind and get on with things.
