According to intriguing assertions in a new book, Camilla began to sympathise with some of Diana’s problems with royal life before she married Prince Charles.

According to novelist and former Vanity Fair editor Tina Brown, the Duchess of Cornwall, like the Princess of Wales before her, had qualms about Charles’ “regimented” lifestyle.

Ms Brown writes in her new book The Palace Papers: Inside the House of Windsor—The Truth and Turmoil that Camilla was taken aback by the’relentless’ nature of the Prince’s rigid routines.

Ms Brown says in an excerpt from her book, which was just published in The Telegraph, “The Prince’s schedule was unrelenting.” He never ate lunch and always ate the same birdseed and peeled fruit for breakfast.

“Camilla had never been a stickler for punctuality, but Charles wanted her to be ready for appointments at his own regulated pace. “Haven’t you read the brief?” he’d say when she questioned where they were heading. At the time, one of her acquaintances informed me that she had begun to feel empathy for Diana’s numerous grievances.”

Camilla, according to the author, once thought there was a “upside” to not being Charles’ wife since she “hated travelling, speaking in public, dressing up, and garnering press attention.”

“She has never had a calendar packed with things she didn’t want to accomplish,” she noted, “which essentially characterises the royal way of life.”

She subsequently changed her mind, and the couple married on April 9, 2005, two months after announcing their engagement.

Last Saturday marked their 17th wedding anniversary, as well as the first anniversary of his father, Prince Philip’s, death.

According to the BBC, Charles and Camilla first met at a polo match at Windsor Great Park in the 1970s.
