Following Princess Diana’s tragic death, fans of the royal family were not pleased to learn about Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles’ serious relationship. However, the Prince of Wales’ staff members were even more displeased with the romance and shunned Camilla out of loyalty to his late ex-wife.

In the 2017 book, “The Duchess: The Untold Story,” author Penny Junor claimed Charles’ staff made no attempts to make Camilla feel welcomed following Princess Diana’s death.

“Just like any marital dispute, people took sides, and she was the other woman. They thought that if it wasn’t for her everything would have been fine, and the beautiful Diana would not have been so miserable and got herself into awkward situations,” a royal press insider told the author.

“I could see there was real divided loyalty,” the source added.

The royal insider went to reveal Camilla kept her distance from Prince Charles’ office, but that didn’t affect how the employees felt about her. “Camilla wasn’t around much, so she was unpopular as a name rather than as a person.”

Due to Diana’s history with Charles’ office, some of the staff members were still grieving the couple’s divorce and the Princess of Wales’ death.

“Camilla wasn’t popular in the prince’s office in those early days. Many of the prince’s staff had known and liked the princess, and had been greatly distressed by the break-up and everything that followed,” Junor wrote.

Princess Diana and Prince Charles finalized their divorce in 1996. A year later, Diana along with her lover, Dodi Fayed passed away following a car crash in Paris.
