Camille Parker Bowles, formally known as Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, is now a major member of the British royal family, though rumors suggest she wasn’t always welcome.

Prince Charles and Camilla first met in the early 1970s through a mutual friend. Though they dated, they went on to marry other people after Charles joined the Royal Navy. Camilla wed her first husband Andrew Parker Bowles and Charles famously went on to marry Princess Diana in 1981. After welcoming sons Prince William and Prince Harry, Charles, who had an ongoing affair with Camilla, divorced Diana in 1996.

Charles and Camilla continued to date post both of their divorces, but their relationship wasn’t immediately respected by the royal family. In Tom Bower’s book "Rebel Prince: The Power, Passion and Defiance of Prince Charles," it is revealed that Queen Elizabeth II did not want to meet Camilla or see her at functions. Due to this, Charles did not feel right about going public with the relationship, upsetting Camilla in the summer of 1998. When Charles finally did ask his mother for her blessing to date Camilla publicly, it did not go well.

"I want nothing to do with her," the Queen reportedly told her eldest son after he asked her to be more welcoming of his girlfriend. The slam came after the monarch had enjoyed a few martinis, according to Bower.

Though Charles went on to marry Camilla in 2005, it was reported that the Queen was not thrilled at her son’s wedding. In May, body language expert Dr. Peter Collette said the Queen showed "unconscious gesture of rejection" at the nuptials. Due to the Queen exposing her tongue at the event, Collette said it meant, “the Queen is displeased – either about the arrangement or about the wedding itself."

More recently, it was rumored that Queen Elizabeth II, 92, and Camilla, 71, butted heads over how to celebrate the 70th birthday of Prince Charles. The Daily Star reported that the women would host two separate parties with the Queen planning to rival and upstage Camilla's party plans. Despite these rumors, the Queen praised Camilla during her son's momentous birthday party last month.

It’s not just her relationship with the Queen that has healed in recent years. Last month, it was reported by Life & Style that Camilla had ended her feud with William and Harry. An insider told the magazine that she felt “terribly” about “stealing Charles” away and recently asked for Harry and William’s forgiveness.

“They have finally managed to clear the air and hug it out,” shared a source.
