Camilla is the mother of two children, Tom Parker Bowles, 47, and Laura Lopes, 44, from a previous marriage. She shares with her ex-husband, Andrew Parker Bowles, to whom she was married from 1973 to 1995.
Camilla then married King Charles III in 2005 and her children were present at the ceremony.
Camilla became queen consort when Charles’s mother, Queen Elizabeth II has died at 96 on September 8.
Before she dies, Queen Elizabeth has announced her desire for Camilla to become queen consort during her platinum jubilee celebration earlier this year.
“When, in due time, my son Charles becomes king, I know that you will give him and his wife Camilla the same support you have given me; and I sincerely hope that, when the time comes, Camilla will be known as Queen Consort as she continues her loyal service,” the message continued.
Although Camilla is married into the royal family, her children are not in the line of succession and have no royal title. “We are commoners,” said Tom Parker Bowles during an interview with A topical matter in 2015.
Here are more details about Camilla’s two children.
Tom Parker Bowles, 47
In 1974, Camilla and her then-husband Andrew welcomed their first child, Tom Parker Bowles. Charles is both godfather and stepfather to Tom, for “The Palace Papers” by Tina Brown.”
Tom Parker Bowles is a award-winning food writer who is the author of several cookbooks, including “Let’s Eat: Recipes from My Kitchen Notebook” from 2012 and “Fortnum & Mason: Time for Tea” from 2021.
In a 2017 interview with The Daily Telegraphhe revealed how he became a food writer.
“I was pretty s—in most things,” he said. “I was naughty, I partied a little hard. When I was younger, I got kicked out all the time. But I loved to eat and I could pretty much string a sentence together, so I thought I could write about food.
The New York Times describes Parker Bowles’ food writing as follows: “His sense of humor is intact throughout and never sharper than when writing about himself, whom he portrays as an inexperienced Englishman with a crush on America and an eagerness to a tourist to fit in by speaking the jargon.”
He has a son, Freddy, and a daughter, Lola, by the flavours.
Laura Lopez, 44 years old
Laura Lopes is Camilla and Andrew’s second child, born in 1978.
In 2006, Lopes married her husband, Harry Lopes, a former model and accountant for Calvin Klein, by the flavours. Wedding guests included King Charles III and the former Kate Middleton.
