Camilla Parker Bowles is reportedly not as prominent as Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle.

Many noticed that Prince Charles’ second wife is not as popular or famous as Prince William's and Prince Harry’s respective wives. Camilla is the next queen consort, but more people are eager to talk about the Duchess of Cambridge becoming the next queen consort.

In this forum, one netizen asked why Camilla is behind Middleton and Markle in popularity. A number of online users responded, with some saying that it may have something to do with her affair with Prince Charles while he was still married to Princess Diana. Meanwhile, others are convinced that it’s due to her age.

“She does still have the stigma of being Prince Charles’ mistress during his marriage to Princess Diana. That has stayed with her all these years, and as long as people remember Diana, they won’t forget,” Kathleen Grace wrote.

Meanwhile, Chris Smith, a teacher, believed that this has something to do with her age and what she wears. According to him, Camilla is not young, doesn’t wear designer clothes and is not Princess Diana. So, the media are not interested in her.

“The media only want to cover the young wives who wear expensive designer labels and occasionally Charles,” he wrote before adding that the older royals only get coverage these days when there is some scandal about them.

According to Derek Cottrell, who lives in the UK, Camilla is actually seen in the country more than Middleton and Markle. The Duchess of Cornwall does the “boring” things that the royals have to do day in and day out, but these things don’t always make the news in the USA.

A number of users agree that Camilla does more engagement than the Duchess of Cambridge and Duchess of Sussex. Unfortunately, just like Princess Anne, the media is not interested to cover it because they are more into the Cambridges and Sussexes.

In related news, Prince Charles reportedly made a giant snub to Camilla in his divorce term with Princess Diana. The Prince of Wales announced that he had no intention of remarrying. Eventually, the future king failed it and married Camilla. However, she never tried to be a mommy to Prince William and Prince Harry.
