The Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla, reveals she loves to ‘spoil’ her grandchildren


When her stepdaughter-in-law, Kate Middleton welcomed her third baby number, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall was filled with joy.

She spoke about the joys of grandparenthood in a British documentary, The Real Camilla: HRH The Duchess of Cornwall.

She said that being a grandmother ” is a wonderful feeling” in the biography. “Yes, I’d recommend it to everybody,” she enthuses. “It’s very nice because you haven’t got the full responsibility. You can give them a wonderful time, spoil them, give them all the things their parents won’t allow them to have and then give them back again.”

Prince Charles and Camilla have ten grandchildren and step-grandchildren between them: Camilla’s daughter Laura Lopes is mom to Eliza and twins Gus and Louis, and her son Tom has two children, Lola and Freddy.

The doc also delves into the question of whether Camilla will be Queen. A friend of the Duchess’, Gyles Brandreth, reveals: “If you had asked Camilla years ago, whether she would be interested in becoming queen, she’d have laughed at the idea. She would have said, hey, how horrific.”
