In honor of Valentine's Day this Friday, we will be discussing another famous couple: Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall. Their enduring relationship has seen it share of extreme ups and downs but they finally ended up together later in life.
Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles first met around 1972. They dated but then separated. It was expected that Prince Charles marry someone of royal heritage. Camilla married Andrew Parker-Bowles and later on Prince Charles married Princess Diana.
As Charles and Diana's marriage fell apart (she blamed Camilla for this) it become a tabloid sensation. Camilla and Charles were having an affair which was exposed and called 'Camillagate' in the press in 1989.
Prince Charles and Diana ultimately divorced as did Camilla from her husband in 1995. Almost a decade after Princess Diana's death in 1997, Charles and Camilla married each other on April 9, 2005. At 12:30 PM BST, Camilla and Charles entered Windsor’s Guildhall to exchange their vows in a civil ceremony, emerging at 12:55 BST as husband and wife.
