Prince Charles’s former press secretary is spilling the tea on the royal’s relationship with wife, Camilla Parker Bowles.
Charles Anson has revealed in a new interview with People, that the couple, who married in 2005, are the perfect balance for one another.
According to Charles, the 71-year-old Duchess of Cornwall “kind of jollies” her husband, and “doesn’t let him get too overburdened by the woes of the world.”
“She’s got a good philosophy about life: There are things you can change, other things you can’t change… Don’t get too hung up about it,” he revealed.
Charles worked for the now 69-year-old Prince of Wales from 1990 to 1996, a turbulent period for the prince who endured a very public and very messy divorce from Princess Diana.
As for the couple’s future, the former press secretary believes that Camilla will be “great” as Queen Consort, when Charles ascends the British throne, a sentiment echoed by Charles himself.
In The Real Camilla: HRH the Duchess of Cornwall a made-for television documentary, Prince Charles extolled his wife’s virtues.
“She has a wonderful way with people that is what is special about her,” she said. “She is remarkable really, she is the best listener in the world and can get anything out of anyone.”
