We are all familiar with the massive royal wedding from 1981 and the biggest scandal that hit the royal family. Princess Diana and Prince Charles got married in 1981, but their happiness didn’t last as Camilla Parker Bowles got into the mix.
In 1996 Prince Charles and Princess Diana got divorced, and in 1997 Princess Diana lost her life in the tragic car accident. Parker Bowles married Prince Charles some years later, and what many are wondering today is would the two Prince Charles’ lover be friends today?
Prior to the scandal, Camilla Parker Bowles and Princess Diana were actually good with each other. When Camilla married Andrew Parker Bowles, Prince Charles and Princess Diana were regular guests in the Parker Bowles residence. Diana helped Camilla with Tom and Laura, her children, and the two formed a bond.
However, things changed once Princess Diana learned about the affair. “I know what’s going on between you and Charles, and I just want you to know that,’” said Princess Diana to Camilla during one party. The two were battling left and right and had peculiar nicknames for each other – the Rottweiler was Camilla, according to Diana, and Camilla said how Diana is acting like ’mad cow.’
Nevertheless, many believe that the two would put their differences aside because of Prince William and Prince Harry. As time went by, the two became less bitter about the scandal, and Ingrid Seward, a royal expert, mentioned, “It was this crazy separation, but by the time the divorce was finalized, they were on much better terms.”
