Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, has two children from her first marriage. But the royal step-siblings admitted to feeling “not quite part of the Royal Family”, in a frank interview.
And Camilla’s biographer Penny Junor has claimed that the Duchess is very “protective” of the pair, who bring “normality” to her hectic life as a member of the Royal Family.
In her book ‘The Duchess: The Untold Story’, Ms Junor wrote: “Her [Camilla] two children, Tom and Laura, who are both married with small children of their own, are all very close and very protective of one another. ”
She added: “She utterly dotes on her five grandchildren and sets aside most weekends for them, as well as taking regular holidays in Devon and Scotland.
“She has kept the house in the country that she had before she married the prince and goes there as often as she can, and she is joined there by her family.
“She cooks, she gardens, she reads, she relaxes, preferring the normality of her old home.”
