A new report claims that Queen Elizabeth wanted Camilla “gone” from the royal family.
The love triangle between Prince Charles, Camilla Parker Bowles and Princess Diana caused shockwaves through Britain and royal fans around the world.
WATCH: Prince Charles captivated by Camilla Parker Bowles
Camilla wed Andrew Parker Bowles in 1973 and Charles married Princess Diana in 1981. But, both marriages ended and Charles and Camilla were coupled up in 1996.
While there were probably many reasons that contributed to the breakdown of Diana and Charles' marriage, it was undeniably Charles' love affair with Camilla Parker Bowles that was the final nail in the coffin.
Now a royal expert says that Her Majesty wanted Camilla one before Diana’s tragic death in 1997.
Penny Junor wrote in the Daily Mail in 2017: “The Queen had wanted her gone before Diana’s death and felt no differently after it.
“Her private secretary, Sir Robert Fellowes – who was also Diana’s brother-in-law – strongly reinforced her view.”
Junor says that it “was nothing personal”.
“It was nothing personal. She had been very fond of Camilla in all the years she had been married to Andrew Parker Bowles – but it was Camilla who had been responsible, wittingly or not, for all the disasters that had befallen Charles since his marriage."
Express.co.uk maintains that the Queen “refused to even acknowledge Charles and Camilla’s relationship” until they formally met in 2000.
