3 mins read


Camilla has shared her joyous experiences of being a grandmother, including how she loves to “spoil” her young grandchildren. The Queen Consort may be a grandmother to Prince William and Prince Harry’s children, as she married their grandfather King Charles in 2005 before any of them were born, but she also has biological grandchildren who live further out of the spotlight.

Now married to the King, Camilla was the wife of Andrew Parker-Bowles from 1973 to 1995 and the former couple had two children together.

Their son, food writer and critic Tom Parker-Bowles, was born in December 1974 and married magazine editor Sara Buys in 2005, although the pair divorced in 2018.

Before they separated Tom and Sara had a daughter Lola in 2007 and a son Frederick in 2010.

Tom’s younger sister Laura came along in April 1978 and became Laura Lopes in 2006 when she married chartered accountant Harry Lopes.

An art curator, Laura’s daughter Eliza was born in 2008, with twin boys Gus and Louis arriving the following year.

Eliza was a bridesmaid at the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton on April 29 2011, when she was just three years old.

Although the Parker-Bowles grandchildren are not seen much in public, Tom and Laura and their respective families attended the Queen’s funeral on September 19.

“You can give them a wonderful time, spoil them, give them all the things their parents won’t allow, then give them back again.”

Camilla has recently been on a luxury retreat in India, however, her plane reportedly got into difficulties while flying back to Heathrow.

The aircraft apparently hit a bird while in the air, which left a large indent on the nose.
