What an interesting history.

Especially the part about Edward VII and Alice Keppel.

I wonder if any of charles' & Camilla's future decendents have the same love story.....say in a hundred years. ;)

maybe if we have some stories regarding alice keppel and Edward VII and see if their love stories would be much the same as the love story of camilla and prince of wales. does anyone know? does having mistress in british royalty is common, that not having a mistress is considered weak?

Camilla's family
a thread about news and pictures about camilla's children and family...

to start, good news!! camilla's daughter will get married soon!

hello magazine


While Prince Charles and his wife Camilla are currently enjoying the hospitality of American VIPs across the pond in the United States, they will likely want to raise a toast to a special someone back home in Blighty. The Duchess of Cornwall's daughter Laura Parker Bowles, 26, has decided to follow the example of both her mother and her older brother Tom by taking a trip down the aisle.

The lucky man who has won her heart is old Etonian Harry Lopes. The handsome 29-year-old, who is in line to inherit the Roborough family seat of Gnaton Hall near Plymouth, modelled for Calvin Klein and Vogue before turning his back on the fashion industry to become an accountant.

Speculation that the pair might be planning to get engaged first surfaced earlier this year when they were spotted house-hunting together in London's fashionable neighbourhood of Notting Hill. Charles and Camilla also visited with Harry's parents, George and Sarah, at their Skelpick Estate in the Scottish Highlands over the summer.

Their romance goes back quite a way further, though, as they started going out with each other eight years ago in 1997. Sources close to the couple say they kept their wedding plans under wraps until now because they didn't want to upstage the nuptials of her older brother Tom in September. No date has yet been set for the big day, but friends say it will be sometime next year.

While this thread usually discusses Laura and Tom. I thought the article was interesting and the Parker Bowles' were part of Camilla's family for 20 years. And they are always going to be in her life somewhat....

The article is on Derek Paravicini. I read about him a few months ago when the book on him came out. He is the ex- nephew of Camilla. His mother MaryAnne is Andrew's sister.

His mother Mary-Ann made the comment that he has never played for Charles and Camilla although he has played for other royals. I thought that was interesting as to why he never has. Charles likes that type of music. Camilla still speaks to Nic (Derek's father) although possibly less to Mary Anne.

Perhaps Charles and Camilla don't want to appear to be promoting him out of nepotism or something.

Camilla is pretty careful about not being criticised for making cash or fame out of Prince Charles and the royal family. Even Tom himself has stressed from time to time that he has not received some fund from Prince Charles because Camilla married him. Camilla is a very discrete and low key woman. She knows how to behave as a royal and she is very sensible to keep her out of the trouble. I like her for that,

As you may have noticed, the posts about the children of the Duchess of Cornwall are gone from this thread.
Both Tom Parker Bowles and Laura Lopes have their own threads now.
Laura & Harry Lopes and Family
Tom Parker Bowles, Sara Buys & Family

This thread is left for information, pictures and news about the other relatives and ancestors of the Duchess of Cornwall.

I was reading a book about Caroline and John kennedy, American Legacy by C. David Heyman. When Caroline was 18 she went to London to take a 9-month art course at Sotheby's auction house. She dated Mark Shand, 9 years her senior for several months.

Andy Warhol is quoted as saying, "Mark Shand was Caroline's first love. He swept her off her feet, then dropped her without a second thought."
