Prince Charles' wife, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, has spoken about their relationship in an interview with The Mail on Sunday. In particular, Camilla opens up about the media's treatment of her when news of her infamous affair with Prince Charles broke.

Camilla tells the magazine, "I couldn't really go anywhere... It was horrid. It was a deeply unpleasant time and I wouldn't want to put my worst enemy through it. I couldn't have survived it without my family."


One of the reasons Camilla was placed under such intense scrutiny when news of her affair with Prince Charles came out was the fact that both parties were still married—Camilla to Andrew Parker-Bowles, and Charles to Princess Diana.

However, in her latest interview, Camilla also makes it clear that she tries not to listen to her critics quite so much anymore. She says, "You also have to laugh at yourself because if you can't, you may as well give up. I sometimes think to myself, 'Who is this woman? It can't possibly be me.' And that's really how you survive."


The fact that Princess Diana has always been so beloved by people all over the world ultimately made news of Prince Charles' affair all the more difficult to process. However, since their wedding in 2005, Charles and Camilla have proven their devotion to one another.
