It might be King Charles III‘s coronation, but his wife, Camilla, Queen Consort, has decided to use the big day to put a massive spotlight on her side of the family.
The woman, who was once King Charles’s mistress, has decided to dramatically switch up the rules by removing the royals and Duchesses from performing the most sacred act of the crowning ceremony.
Instead, she has requested her five grandchildren take on that significant role.
Camilla, Queen Consort, has now decided that Andrew Parker Bowles, her ex-husband, will be front and center for the most critical day of King Charles’s life.
While King Charles has banned Sarah Ferguson from attending the coronation because she is divorced from his disgraced brother, Prince Andrew, that rule does not apply to Queen Camilla.
The Times noted: “Being divorced, I don’t think you can have it both ways.” So said the Duchess of York last week, explaining why she is not invited to the coronation on May 6. One man, however, can and will have it both ways.
Andrew Parker Bowles, Camilla’s former husband, will be front and center of the congregation at Westminster Abbey, watching his first wife crowned alongside King Charles while his grandchildren take center stage with official roles in the ceremony.”
A friend of Parker Bowles spoke to the Times to confirm that he has a more than close relationship with Queen Camilla — the exes are joined by the hips.
The pal shared more embarrassing details about Queen Camilla’s rogue and unfaithful ex-spouse by saying: “They are joined at the hip. He arranges so much for her. They have lunch together the whole time. He’s right in there. He was always, and still is, Camilla’s co-conspirator.”
According to the media outlet, “friends politely describe Parker Bowles, who was unfaithful to Camilla during their courtship and marriage, as a bit of a rogue and very naughty with women.”
Recently, the Duchess of York sat down with the Independent and spoke about being snubbed from the coronation ceremony.
Sarah Ferguson said that she is no longer married to Prince Andrew and, therefore, she does not expect to be invited to major royal events.
She confessed: “Well, you can’t have it both ways. You can’t sit on the fence and keep one foot in and one foot out. You’re either in or out. But then don’t cry about not being invited to weddings. You chose to leave, now go and live it – and be it. It was my decision. If I’m going to go, then go.”
Some royal watchers see King Charles and his wife as hypocrites who punish others for breaking the rules they do not abide by.
