Camilla, future queen consort, photographed by British “Vogue”

The fashion magazine met the wife of Prince Charles, who spoke at length about her career and her day-to-day life.

Beyonce is not the only one Queen to wear the latest number fashion British. In the pages of the July edition of the magazine, whose cover is the American star, a crowned royal head is portrayed for the first time: Camilla Shand, ex-Camilla Parker-Bowles, wife of Prince Charles and future queen consort.

On the occasion of her 75th birthday, on July 17, the Duchess of Cornwall confided in the journalist Giles Hattersley her family life, the couple she formed with the future king of England, the years in which the pink press targeted her and her charitable commitments. All this illustrated with photographs taken by Jamie Hawkesworth at Clarence House, in which she appears dressed in pieces from her wardrobe.

Camilla Shand mentions in particular her role as godmother of the SafeLives association, which helps victims of domestic violence: “I think we all know someone to whom it happened,” says the one who claims to be a feminist.

“I’ve heard about this too often, from friends who know friends, and thought maybe I should look into it and see if I could help.”

“I’ve been examined for so long”

She also falls back into disgrace in public opinion, very strong during the 1990s, when she was perceived as Diana’s rival. “It’s not easy,” she says. “I’ve been under scrutiny for so long that you just have to find a way to live with it. Nobody likes to be looked at all the time, criticized and… But I think in the end, I’m up to it. on top of that and I get used to it. You have to keep living.”

Especially since at the time of the formalization of her relationship with Prince Charles, Camilla Shand was a divorced woman, already the mother of two children. A profile far removed from the refined personalities that prevail in Buckingham. So many controversies that are already part of the past, as the Duchess seems to indicate when referring to her relationship as a couple, which she and her husband combine with two very tight agendas:

“Sometimes it’s not easy, but we always try to have a moment in the day that we spend together… We always sit together and have a cup of tea and talk about our day.”
