A new book follows the life of Camilla Parker Bowles and her journey to becoming Queen Consort. One part of the Queen’s life that will be explored is her relationship with her stepchildren, Prince William and Prince Harry. The author says an insider told her Camilla was “cautious” about Prince Harry.
Queen Camilla was “cautious” about Prince Harry, an insider says
In the book Camilla: From outcast to queen consort, author Andrea Levin talks about Camilla’s life and how she coped with royal life. Levin says an insider believed Camilla didn’t have an easy time being a stepmom at first.
According to the insider, Camilla was “cautious” about Prince Harry. Levin’s source says Camilla would sometimes catch him “looking at her long and coldly.” She reportedly found this unsettling. It’s likely that Prince Harry and Prince William took some time to adjust after their father married another woman. However, according to the book, Camilla and Harry got along well.
Queen Camilla’s approach to parenting
Levin’s source says Camilla has made an effort to support Prince Harry rather than trying to become his “surrogate mother”. The source says despite Camilla’s efforts to offer support, Prince Harry seemed “a lost soul in so many ways”.
The book goes on to say that Camilla is not trying to force a relationship as a step-grandmother. According to Levin, she understands that Prince William’s children and Prince Harry’s children already have grandparents.
Camilla’s relationship with Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle
Levin says Camilla and Kate Middleton have become closer over the years. Camilla was reportedly keen to help Kate settle into the royal family as they both lived what the author describes as “normal lives” prior to their marriage. She identified with Kate. According to Levin, Camilla helped Kate familiarize herself with the customs and practices expected of royals.
Levin says Camilla also welcomed Meghan Markle with open arms. According to a senior royal, Camilla thought Meghan would represent modern day royals well. Camilla reportedly took her out to lunch and gave her advice on how to adjust to her new life. At first everyone seemed to hit it off, Levin says. However, according to Levin’s source, Meghan “didn’t seem to be responding to Camilla’s guidance” and reportedly wanted to “carve out her own path”.
A source says Prince Harry has been “negative” about Camilla
According to Levin’s source, Prince Harry was “negative” towards Camilla. The source believes Harry’s alleged behavior could be part of some sort of “therapy process” where he’s “re-living” parts of his life and “blaming someone else for mistakes” he’s made. Levin says another source told her Meghan was also said to have been “terrible” about Camilla.
It is not surprising that there was an adjustment period for Prince Harry and Prince William after King Charles III. married Camilla. They’re probably still processing the death of their mother, Princess Diana. We can’t say for sure if Levin’s source was right about “negative” or “terrible” things said about Camilla. Hopefully any alleged animosity between Camilla and Meghan and Harry has been resolved.
