  • This is what happened to King Charles' wife

It was one of the most explosive affairs ever to take place in the British royal family: the relationship between Camilla Parker-Bowles (75) and King Charles (74) - both married at the time of the relationship.

Accordingly, there was great excitement in the international media landscape when the relationship between the then-still British heir to the throne and the wife of the Military man Andrew Parker-Bowles (83) became public. In an interview with 'The Mail on Sunday', the current Queen explained how terrible she felt at that time.

Queen Camilla: "I couldn’t have survived it without my family"

Especially the siege of the press was a nightmare after the affair of Camilla Parker-Bowles and Prince Charles, who was then still married to Princess Diana (†36), became known: "I couldn’t really go anywhere. But the children came and went as normal – they just got on with it – and so did great friends. It was horrid. It was a deeply unpleasant time and I wouldn’t want to put my worst enemy through it," revealed the 75-year-old to 'The Mail on Sunday'.

Her family was a great support to the current wife of King Charles in this crisis, Camilla even revealed that she "couldn’t have survived it without my family," according to the interview.

In 2005, more than ten years after the affair between the two became known and nine years after the official divorce between Charles and Diana, Charles and Camilla found their happiness.
