Camilla’s grief stems from the fact that “no one wanted her on the scene”: ‘Had a tough time with it.’
According to a royal specialist, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, was not wanted “on the scene” and had a “hard time” being recognized as a member of the Royal Family.
Camilla was included in the BBC documentary ‘Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers’, which aired last month to honor the Duke of Edinburgh, who died in April at the age of 99.
Through interviews with the Queen’s four children as well as her adult grandchildren, the program provided insight into the life of the Firm. The only royal in-laws included in the hour-long presentation were Prince Edward’s wife Sophie, Countess of Wessex, and Prince Charles’ wife Camilla.
Camilla, who married Charles in 2005, was met with skepticism by some because of her prior involvement with the heir apparent, and many saw her as the cause of his divorce from Princess Diana.
Over the last 15 years, she has worked carefully in the background to rehabilitate her reputation, working diligently in the background with her humanitarian endeavors.
Camilla stated she was inspired by Philip’s ability to carry out his work without drawing attention to himself and recognizing that his purpose is to help his wife in a recent documentary about her father-in-law.

Mr Myers claims Camilla was given a “rough time” at the start of her royal career, but has now become one of “The Firm’s darlings.”
“If you remember, nobody wanted Camilla on the scene, and she had a really hard time ingratiating herself within the fold,” he stated on the podcast last month.
“She’s become one of the Firm’s darlings, both inside and out, and she’s extremely well respected for the work she does and the way she conducts herself.”
“It’s fascinating that she’s adopted the Duke of Edinburgh’s level of support and knowledge of her duty.”
“And there was undoubtedly a great deal of love and respect there, which you could see.”
Camilla and Charles are said to have met for the first time in 1970 and have since survived difficulty and wrath.
