King Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles also encountered a marital crisis like any other couple. According to an outlet, it came to a point when the queen consort almost divorced her husband.
King Charles And Camilla Almost Get Divorced? Queen Consort Reportedly Considered Ending Marriage
Queen Consort Camilla has been known to be King Charles' top supporter. However, things weren't smooth sailing between the two, according to a report from Radar Online.
The pair tied the knot on April 9, 2005, years after Princess Diana passed away. However, two years after they wed, things reportedly got so bad.
"Things have gotten so bad that they can't even hide it anymore," a palace source told Radar Online.
Insiders claimed that Camilla was "threatening to spill dirty secrets" out of frustration. She was also allegedly asking for a multimillion-dollar divorce settlement.
When the tensions were too high for the royal couple, Queen Elizabeth reportedly stepped in to help them work on their marital issues.
"The queen has been told Camilla is preparing a divorce action and she's called her to a private audience at Buckingham Place," the source added.
Apparently, they were able to sort out that issue as the pair remained married to each other. The senior royal couple just celebrated their 17th wedding anniversary.
King Charles also acknowledged Camilla when he became king.
"I count on the loving help of my darling wife, Camilla. In recognition of her own loyal public service since our marriage 17 years ago, she becomes my Queen Consort," King Charles said. "I know she will bring to the demands of her new role the steadfast devotion to duty on which I have come to rely so much."
How's King Charles And Camilla's Relationship At Present
King Charles and Camilla have kept separate homes even if their official residence has long been Clarence House. The couple is so bonded that they could spend time apart without any drama.
For instance, the king decided to spend a day of private reflection at his nine-bedroom country manor, Highgrove. Camilla did not join him as she spent the day at her Ray Mill House, which she purchased in 1996 after her split from her ex-husband Andrew Parker Bowles, Page Six reported.
"They are a very close couple so this is nothing to do with any tensions between them," an anonymous insider said about King Charles and his wife.
"Camilla does have her own room at Highgrove, but she very rarely stays there. When they are in the countryside, she prefers to be at Ray Mill House where she not only is close to her family but also maintains her stables. That is just the way things have always been with them."
Royal expert and commentator Richard Fitzwilliams echoed the same sentiment. According to him, being apart from each other only showed how in tune the king and queen consort were with each other.
"This is a couple who are ideal for each other. They are a similar age and have the same sense of humor, same attitudes, same friends, same interests ... and they both know that sometimes you need a bit of space," he explained.
