World anectode. Despite the fact that nearly thirty years have passed, Charles of Wales still embarrassed by the scandalous phone conversation with Camila from Cornwall which was leaked in January 1993. This is stated by a royal expert quoted by the British newspaper Daily Star.
“I can’t start the week without you”Camila told Prince Charles during the conversation that it is actually from 1989, but that became public a month after the separation of Diana from Wales, in 1992. The event had such an impact that the British media called it the “CamilaGate”.
The call between Carlos and Camila
The recorded phone call between the queen’s eldest son Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom and the Duchess of Cornwall exposed the intimate relationship of the couple. In the transcript of the controversial conversation you can even read a quite graphic phrase from Prince Charles that says: “I want to fill your tank.”
During the conversation they both joke about how “desperately” they want to get back together, amid some rather risqué comments and sayings as they agree when and where to meet again. And it is there that Prince Charles even tells Camila: “Your great achievement is loving me”. To which she responds: “I would suffer anything for you. That’s love. It is the force of love “.
When the recording was revealed it generated a real commotion within the British royal family, especially, because both Carlos and Camila were married at the time of the conversation. The call also resulted in her divorce from her husband, Andrew Parker Bowles.
The conversation that still puts royalty to shame
According to royal expert Howard Hodgson, “the episode still worries Carlos today.” “He knows that people who do not sympathize with him or the monarchy will remember him at the moment of his coronation and in all other significant events in his life. The truth is that he is still deeply ashamed for the disgust he caused his mother and both her children and Camila’s “, he pointed.
Lady Di is said to have called the conversation “sick.” Diana and Carlos ended their marriage in 1996. The heir to the British Crown maintained his relationship with Camila and gradually integrated her into his public life. They married in 2005 and she is now known as the Duchess of Cornwall, having taken her husband’s secondary title out of respect for Diana.
