Queen Camilla was not the “villain” in Princess Diana’s marriage with King Charles, an expert has said.
The King and Queen have known one another since the 1970s and their close bond has always been a talking point – even during the monarch’s marriage to Diana.
They met at a polo match in Windsor but Camilla was already with Andrew Parker-Bowles.

She went on to marry Parker-Bowles three years later in 1973 and another four years after that, in 1977, Charles would meet a 16-year-old Diana.
The then-prince and his future wife met while Charles was seeing Diana’s older sister, Lady Sarah, but the presence of Camilla would be painted as a spectre throughout.
Diana once said in a 1995 BBC Panorama interview: “There were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded.”
According to Deputy Editor of Royal Central Britani Barger, however, Charles and Camilla would have been together from the start had the royal family let them.

Writing for Royal Central, Ms Barger said: “For decades, many have painted the Duchess of Cornwall as a villain cast opposite of Diana’s hero. It is past time for that narrative to stop.
“We see her as the other woman, running around with the Prince of Wales while he was married to Diana.
“It is important to remember that these two loved each other from the beginning, and it was the Royal Family who would not allow them to be together.
“If they had had it their way, they would have been married to each other from the beginning.
“Now, I’m not condoning an extramarital affair, but there is more to this story than gets reported.”
