Camilla belonged to an affluent family. She had a wealthy upbringing. Besides, she had ties with the royal household for many years. And now she is married to the next King of England. The 2019 figure for her estimated net worth is $ 5 million.

Camilla attended the University of London Institute in Paris and worked as a secretary in businesses in London’s West End. Later, she took up a job in a decorating firm. Here, she met Andrew Parker Bowles who had contacts with the military as well as the Royals.
She married Andrew in 1973 and through him got more close to the Royal house. The couple had two children: Thomas Henry and Laura Rose. But since 1970, she was also in love with Prince Charles after they met in a Polo match held in Windsor. They dated until 1971 when Charles joined the Royal Navy. Her former boarding school classmate, Lynn Redgrave had said that Camilla always wanted a rich husband and also wanted to have fun.
She divorced Andrew in 1995 and after Diana’s death in a car crash in 1995, she wed Prince Charles in 2005 in a ceremony at Windsor Guildhall. She is into charity and has an interest in health, education, supporting victims of rape, sexual abuse, and domestic violence, women empowerment, food, animals, and arts and heritage.
