Camilla Parker Bowles initially rooted for Kate and William to breakup.


We have been seeing William and Kate in love for over decade now. Be it before or after the marriage, they have always been relationship goals for us.

 Winning over the in-laws is never easy but when they’re royal, it’s a different ball game altogether.

Not only does your banter have to be on top form but also appropriate when you meet your other half’s parents. But, if you’re marrying into the royal family you have to get on top of a whole new way of life. 

The Duchess of Cambridge, has been widely admired for how easily she assimilated into the House of Windsor both when she and William first started going out and after the pair got married.

Although, every relationship has its own hardships. 

The Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla initially rooted for Kate and William to break up, claims a royal biographer.

Her warmth and charm meant she also quickly became a favourite with the public. And, it was something that reportedly put Camilla Parker Bowles’ nose out of joint.

A royal biographer has claimed that the Duchess of Cornwall wasn’t keen on her step-son William’s girlfriend in the beginning. And it was simply because she was so well-liked.

Camilla’s association with the royals didn’t exactly start out well. 

She was widely believed to be having an affair with Prince Charles while he was still married to Princess Diana. This meant she wasn’t as immediately popular as Kate Middleton.

In his book, Game of Crowns: Elizabeth, Camilla, Kate, and the Throne, Christopher Anderson wrote that Camilla had wanted Kate and William to break up when they first started going out.

He even goes as far as to say that she asked Prince Charles to convince William to split with her. Whatever past beef they may have had, the pair certainly seem to be on very good terms now.
