Camilla Shand was born in 1947 and met the prince for the first time in the early ‘70s. And, as we all know, never really left his life for good. Even though their romance was brief, it was powerful. As the pair split up, it led them to eventually marrying other people. Camilla married Andrew Parker Bowles in 1973, and Charles wed Lady Diana Spencer in 1981. Despite them being married people now, the two ex-lovers didn’t let that stand in the way. Throughout their partnerships, they kept a strong, rich friendship, which eventually led to an affair.
