Camilla was ‘terrified’ of being booed and backlash when marrying Prince Charles

A current affairs commentator has issued that Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall was reportedly 'terrified' of being booed during her wedding to Prince Charles.

The Royal Family approved Camilla Parker Bowles, 74, and Prince Charles. 73. to marry in 2005.

Their romance was controversial because it emerged in the early nineties that they had had an affair while they were married to other people ‒ Charles to Princess Diana and Camilla to Andrew Parker Bowles.

A current affairs and TV commentator, Carole Malone, said that the Duchess was fearful she would be booed at her own wedding, reports The Express.

At the time, Camilla was heavily criticised by the public and the press, as she was blamed for the breakdown of Charles and Diana's marriage.

Speaking during the 2021 Channel 5 documentary, Charles and Camilla: King and Queen in Waiting, current affairs commentator Carole Malone spoke of Camilla's ordeal.

She said: "[Camilla] was terrified no one would come. She was terrified she'd be booed."

Malone recalled: "I remember seeing film footage at the time, it was about 6am and there was no one on the streets of Windsor. It was freezing as well, it was a really, really cold day.

"As a journalist, I was looking at it and thinking the only reaction to this is going to be national apathy which is kind of almost as bad as a protest."

Camilla and Charles were joined for the ceremony in 2005 by Prince William, Prince Harry, Camilla's children and close friends.

As head of the Church of England, the Queen did not feel as though she could attend but she did join the royal couple in St George's Chapel afterwards.

Queen Elizabeth II recently expressed her desire for Camilla to be Queen at the point Charles becomes King.

In a message to the nation to mark Accession Day and the start of her Jubilee year, Her Majesty wrote: "And when, in the fullness of time, my son Charles becomes King,

"I know you will give him and his wife Camilla the same support that you have given me; and it is my sincere wish that, when that time comes, Camilla will be known as Queen Consort as she continues her own loyal service."
