The Queen told Prince Charles to dump his mistress Camilla after his divorce from Princess Diana, a royal expert has claimed.
Royal author Penny Juror has claimed the Queen was not pleased that Charles was carrying on with Camilla after he separated from the so-called People’s Princess.
Juror claims it was “nothing personal” but the Queen told Charles she wanted her gone amid the scandal around his marriage.
Camilla and Charles had been seeing each other as his relationship publicly collapsed with Diana.
“There were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded,” Diana famously quipped.
Charles and Camilla met in the 1970s, and their romance continued even as they went on to marry different people.
Diana and Charles separated in 1992, before divorcing in 1996 – just one year before her death in a car crash in Paris.
Royal expert Juror claims The Queen had been “fond” of Camila but wasn’t happy with the role she had played in the failure of Charles’ and Diana’s marriage.
She is said to have told the prince to ditch his mistress.
Charles however told the Queen that Camilla was a “non-negotiable” part of his life.
“[The Queen] had been very fond of Camilla in all the years she had been married to Andrew Parker Bowles – but it was Camilla who had been responsible, wittingly or not, for all the disasters that had befallen Charles since his marriage,” Juror told the Mail.
“The Queen had wanted her gone before Diana’s death and felt no differently after it.
“Her private secretary, Sir Robert Fellowes – who was also Diana’s brother-in-law – strongly reinforced her view.”
