King Charles and Lady Camilla tied the knot around their children in 2005.
Queen Elizabeth II herself didn’t attend the event, but Her Majesty’s second son, Prince Harry, admitted he was happy for his father.
In his memoir Spare, Harry notes how he and Prince William sympathized with the couple.
“As a married couple, I empathized with Pa and Camila. They took Starcross to a new level. After years of longing setbacks, they were now only a few steps away from happiness. ..and new obstacles kept appearing. First, there was controversy about the nature of the ritual.
He adds: Perplexed, I asked Willie: What does the Pope have to do with Pa? Lord, it turns out. Pa and Camilla didn’t want to get married on the same day the Pope was buried. Bad karma. less press. More importantly, her grandma wanted Pa to represent her at her funeral.wedding plans changed
Harry recalls thinking that a universal force was preventing his father from getting married.
“On and on—if you listened carefully, you could hear screams and moans of despair wafting through the palace grounds. I don’t know if it was the wedding planner’s or Camilla’s (or Pa’s). Other than feeling sorry for them, I couldn’t help but think that some force in the universe (the mummy?) was hindering their union rather than blessing it. Delay?, he asked himself.
This happens as King Charles and Lady Camilla prepare for their coronation in May 2023.
