Now things get trickier Queen blesses CamillaPrince Charles, 74, will be named “Queen” when Prince Charles, 73, becomes king.

While Harry’s older brother Prince William has grown accustomed to his father’s former mistress Camilla, Harry will never fully accept her, a key royal source said. Nor would he forget that it was his late mother, Princess Diana, who was once destined to be queen — or Diana’s famous quote about Charles and Camilla’s affair: “The three of us are married, so it’s a bit crowded.”

“The dogged corruption of Charles’ courtiers over the years has made Camilla a delicacy for the British public and the world at large. Camilla has been tirelessly courting herself – she has been married by Charles’ side for 16 years,” the source said. .

“But Harry will never really love her, his mother was destined to be queen and Camilla will always be the woman who caused his parents to divorce. This will be the first time Harry is not reunited with his family on the balcony of Buckingham Palace, I Believe it will be a difficult time.”

When Charles and Camilla married in 2005, the couple said she would not use the Princess Diana title.

However, in February this year, the 96-year-old monarch announced she wanted Camilla to be called “Queen” when Charles came to the throne.

“When my son Charles becomes king, I know you will give him and his wife Camilla the same support you gave me; it is my sincere hope that Camilla will be called Queen by then, continuing Her own loyal service,” she said in a message commemorating her Platinum Jubilee.

There has been speculation that Camilla will be called “Princess” when Charles becomes king, but the monarch’s note makes it clear that she wants Camilla to be called queen eventually.

Part of Harry's lingering problem with Camilla is that he doesn't see her taking the place of his late mother Diana.

“If Charles and Diana were successful, we wouldn’t be talking like that,” the royal source said. “Because Charles and Camilla put their own needs and well-being first, we are in constant constitutional constraints, which means William and Kate are really the last card of the Windsor family.”

When asked what Prince William and Harry thought of Camilla, former Vanity Fair editor Tina Brown recently tell the telegraph: “William has come to terms with what Camilla meant to his dad. He’s grown up. “My dad loves this woman and I can’t beat it, so I won’t.” “Harry, on the other hand, can’t stand Camilla, he doesn’t want Camilla to be queen, and he’s very angry that this is happening. He hasn’t made peace with it yet, and he probably never will.”

In her new book, “court documents,” Brown quoted a courtier who said of Harry: “When the little boy was finally persuaded to appear before Mrs. Parker Bowles, he disturbed her with long silences and smoldering, resentful glances. . “

Speaking of Camilla and Charles’ love story, Brown said: “Camilla was his horse whisperer. She knew his temperament very well. She had the emotional intelligence of that incredible mistress. [emotional intelligence] If he’s egotistical, when should he be pulled up…with a little stern love, but always with warmth and humor. It’s a lot like the Queen Mother and King George VI together. She was able to manage him without him knowing he was being managed. So did Camilla; I think she stabilized Charles in a way that was very healthy for Charles. He’s a more relaxed man when he’s around her, and she does make him laugh. She is an interesting woman. She shared all his interests and friends that Diana never shared. “

Brown pointed out that the Queen is trying not to dwell on the past.

“Diana would hate the idea of ​​Queen Camilla, there’s no doubt about it,” Brown said. “But we’ve been 25 years. The Queen has always been a pragmatist and she knows that Charles wants Camilla to be Queen. So what the Queen wants to do now is to clean up and do everything she can to help Charles take on that role. The statement is a very shrewd estate planning.”
