Camilla Parker Bowles became the wife of Prince Charles when his marriage with Princess Diana ended in a Divorce and when the Princess suffered a tragic death. Since they got married, the Prince changed his public image to improve the public perception of her new wife.

Their relationship was beneficial for them both. It changed the public perception of the Duchess of Cornwall, and it made the future king a better man. Many believed that the king became more relaxed because of her new wife.
A source close to the royal family said that the Duchess of Cornwall made a massive difference in him. The source also said that the Prince is always laughing and chatting, mentioning that the two have great affection and humor between them.
The relationship of the couple started roughly since their love started while the Prince was still married to Princess Diana. They were criticized by the public because of their affair. Many disapproved with the relationship of the couple up until now.
However, rumors said that Princess Diana also had an affair while they were still married.
Lauren Thompson, a journalist, said that the marriage of the Prince to Diana was over long before she died. She also said that all of this rivalry between Diana and Camilla is so far in the past, and that is where it should stay.

The Prince and the Duchess of Cornwall were married in a civil ceremony in 2005, nine years after his divorce with Princess Diana. After the celebration, the two headed to Windsor Castle to be blessed by the Archbishop of Canterbury. Around 800 guests joined the couple to show support. The couple vowed to remain faithful with each other for the rest of their lives. The Queen, however, failed to attend the marriage of the couple because of her role as Supreme Governor of the Church but she attended the blessing at the Windsor Castle.
