Camilla was afraid of going out shopping and ‘hid in her house’ when affair with Charles was made public, expert claims

Camilla Parker Bowles, a member of the British Royal Family, faced public backlash when her affair with Prince Charles was exposed. Author Angela Levin reveals that Camilla was once so fearful of leaving her home due to public mistreatment that she “had to send her friends to do her errands.” The affair began in 1986 while Charles was still married to Princess Diana, leading to their separation in 1992 and divorce in 1996. The infamous “Tampongate scandal” in 1989 revealed an intimate phone call between Charles and Camilla, damaging their reputations.

Despite initial resistance from the Queen and public, Camilla’s acceptance grew over the years. On the eve of her Platinum Jubilee, Queen Elizabeth expressed her wish for Camilla to be known as Queen Consort when Charles ascends to the throne. Camilla’s title may change before the coronation, with reports suggesting the dropping of “Consort.” Camilla has evolved into a popular member of the Royal Family, symbolizing strength and resilience.
