According to palace sources, Camilla’s behavior has put her at odds with the monarch. “She turned into coronationzilla,” said the royal insider.
“Camilla and Charles are disagreeing about absolutely everything, from the direction of the ceremony to which celebrities should be invited. She’s even bossing Charles around over his outfit. There’s only so much he can take.”
A source said one of their biggest points of contention is what to do with Prince Harry. In his memoir, Charles’ youngest son, 38, called Camilla “dangerous” and revealed he begged his father not to marry the woman whom his late mother, Princess Diana, famously referred to as the third person in their marriage.
In a 60 Minutes interview, Harry also alleged his stepmom forged a relationship with the press that allowed for good coverage of herself at the expense of negative stories about him. Given those accusations, it’s not all that surprising that Camilla doesn’t want Harry and wife Meghan Markle, 41, around on the royals’ big day this Spring.
A rep for Harry and Meghan recently confirmed the king is evicting them from their last bolthole in England, Frogmore Cottage.
“Charles believes they should be present during such a milestone moment,” said the insider. “He hasn’t completely forgiven Harry and Meghan, but is trying to make some kind of progress. Camilla is attempting to get in the way of that happening.”
The showdown over the Sussexes as well as other coronation details has taken a toll. “Camilla and Charles go through periods of sleeping in separate bedrooms because of the arguing and her constant complaining,” said the insider.
“He’s hoping she’ll calm down and see the bigger picture … but so far, Camilla has been a total nightmare,” said the insider.
