Lights and shadows within the British royal family, where relationships between relatives, natural or acquired, often travel at two or more speeds. Leaving Carlo and Harry aside for once (reconciled or, if possible, perhaps even more divided than before), it is a good opportunity to focus on Camilla and her privileged relationship with Katerelationship that instead with William it is still struggling to take off. In fact, it seems that the relationship between the current and future queen is even idyllic, with the former embodying a real point of reference for the latter. The reason is that the king’s consort was only a future queen until a year ago, a role that the Princess of Wales now holds.
Honors and burdens, therefore, for Catherine Elizabeth Middleton, married to the future king and who has to deal with all the pressures already required by the role she will have when she ascends to the throne together with William. No one understands the Princess of Wales like Queen Camilla and the same is true in reverse, royal expert Jennie Bond tells Ok Magazine, according to which, the two women share a “unique relationship” due to their similar “destiny”. With Kate she is a careful observer of Camilla’s metamorphosis, who went from being the wife of the heir to the throne to the current wife of the king.
A woman considered “intelligent and determined” by royal insiders, Kate shows that she knows that experience is important and does not miss the opportunity to learn from Camilla’s ‘direct’ experience as well. However, it is a counterbalance to it William, who, 18 years after his father Charles’s marriage to the Duchess of Cornwall, is still struggling to establish a good relationship with the Queen. Angela Levin, author of the book ‘Camilla: From Outcast to Queen Consort’, declared that “for William, Camilla is his father’s wife, but not the ‘step-grandmother’ of his children”, adding that little George, Charlotte and Louis, according to the Prince of Wales, have “two grandfathers but only one grandmother”.
