Princess Anne: her story resurfaces with the first husband of Camilla Parker Bowles

This is one of many stories in the ledger of the British royal family. However, it resurfaces after being forgotten for a long time. The Crown, the famous Netflix series, did not stop fixing it in its own way.

Before marrying Captain Mark Phillips, Princess Anne, the daughter of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, was in a relationship with the new queen consort’s ex-husband, Camilla Parker-Bowles. A more than amazing story since after that, it is his brother, King Charles III who had a relationship with Camilla Parker-Bowles.

Sometimes it is difficult to follow the stories of the royal family. This is, among other things, the reason why the famous series was born. The crown, streaming on Netflix. However, it is important to remember that the events that take place in the series are not all real. Situations have sometimes been arranged to embellish reality, or simply to make it sharper.

Among many examples, The crown organized the history of the royal family in its own way by introducing the relationship of Princess Anne and Andrew Parker-Bowles. The series makes it clear that this relationship and Prince Charles’s with Camilla Shand have ‘overlap’, happening almost at the same time. Which is obviously a lie.

The two relationships did not take place at the same time.

According to Bedell Smith, author of the book Prince Charles: The passions and paradoxes of an unlikely life, in the shadow of the throne, the two relations do not overlap. In fact, the author claims that “Anne and Andrew started dating in June 1970”but their relationship didn’t last because “As Andrew was a Catholic, he was ‘an unlikely candidate to marry into the royal family’.

On top of that, Prince Charles and Camila only met in “the summer of 1972, long after Andrew and Princess Anne’s affair had ended.”assures the writer, before recounting in more detail the meeting in Carlos and Camila: “They were introduced by a mutual friend, Lucía Santa Cruz, who told me that they had been invited to have a drink at her apartment in London. Prince Charles also told Jonathan Dimbleby that Lucia had introduced them in 1972. Charles fell madly in love with Camilla, but for her it was an adventure since he was the Prince of Wales. In the meantime, Andrew went to Ireland and Cyprus for six months.”He explained.

Therefore, it is impossible for the two relationships to have overlapped, contrary to what happens in the arranged scenario of The crown. On this subject, the author therefore made a point of recall: The Crown is a fictional representation of the royal family. and it’s beautifully made, beautifully written, beautifully acted… But, because of that, the public tends to take it at face value. Much of it is made up.”

Princess Anne and Andrew Parker-Bowles are still friends

Despite their relationship dating back to 1970 and thus not lasting, Princess Anne and Andrew Parker-Bowles remained friends and close friends. They are often photographed together during horse races. because it is a common passion that drew them to each other in 1970.

The author even revealed thatAndrew was named among Zara Tindall’s godparents when she was born in 1981.

Regarding the love life of the two friends and former lovers, Andrew and Camilla divorced in 1995 and he was photographed attending the blessing service of his ex-wife and then Prince Charles in 2005 with their two children, Tom Parker Bowles and Laura Lopez. . Andrew married Rosemary Dickinson in 1996, but sadly she passed away in 2010 from cancer.

Notice to fans of The crown, be careful not to confuse series and reality, because some mysteries of the British crown remain unsolved, and probably never will be. Give room to your imagination, and that of the writers.
