Recently, Prince Harry opened up about how he felt about his father, King Charles, getting remarried after the passing of his mother, Princess Diana.
Years after being questioned by the paparazzi about whether the wedding should proceed, he finally admitted that he didn’t think it was “necessary,” but his older brother intervened before he could respond. With only one week until his wedding to Queen Consort Camilla in March 2005, Charles and his two sons went skiing in Klosters.
A relaxed Charles spoke with the media about his upcoming wedding while wearing a waterproof blue jacket and holding hands with Harry, 20, who was wearing a traditional black coat, and William, 22, who was dressed in a black and red jacket.
“Your Royal Highness, the wedding is in eight days. Can you tell me how you are feeling right now and, in particular, how William and Harry are feeling about getting married? an interrogator questioned. The youngest Prince or even the King didn’t respond as the camera focused on Harry’s face!
On April 9, 2005, Charles and Camilla exchanged vows—one day later than they had originally intended—to become husband and wife.
You and your brother both directly asked your dad not to marry Camilla, Anderson Cooper questioned in a frank interview on 60 MINUTES in January 2023.
Yes, the Duke answered. We didn’t consider it essential. We believed it would have more negative effects than positive ones, so if he was now with his person, that must have been sufficient.
When you don’t necessarily need to, why go that far? We wished for him to be content. We could see how content he was with her. So, it was “OK” at the time.
From 1981 to 1996, King Charles was wed to Princess Diana; however, in a reference to his adultery, Harry claimed Camilla was “the third person in their marriage.”
