Prince Charles has stood by Camilla Parker Bowles’ side for years. In fact, he has also overhauled his public image to help improve the public’s perception of his wife.

While speaking with Sky News, royal correspondent Caroline Frost said that Camilla has been put in the public eye through civilized and cunning actions. These moves were aimed at giving the Duchess of Cornwall all-round praise and approval.

“We’ve seen that Prince Charles’ image has had an overhaul in the last decade or so, and the acceptance of his wife,” Frost said. “People have been making some very civilized and cunning maneuvers to put Camilla in the public eye … So I would hope they would get somebody in who will say, ‘let’s just ease off the Hollywood glamor, bit more royalty,’” she added.

But if Prince Charles has been crucial in changing the public perception of Camilla, it seems that the Duchess of Cornwall has also made the future king a better man. A source told Vanity Fair that the Prince of Wales has become more relaxed because of his wife.

“She’s made a massive difference in him,” the source said. “He’s much more relaxed now. They are always laughing and chatting, they have great affection and humor between them,” the source added.

However, things weren’t always peaceful with the royal couple. Decades ago, they were criticized for having an affair while Prince Charles was still married to Princess Diana. But a journalist for Express noted the fact that Princess Diana also had affairs while she was still married to Prince Charles.

“Charles and Diana’s marriage was over long before she died,” journalist Lauren Thompson said. “All of this rivalry between Diana and Camilla is so far in the past and that is where it should stay. If Prince William and Harry can be happy for their father and accept the woman he loves, why can’t we?” she added.

Prince Charles and Camilla tied the knot in 2005 in a civil ceremony. At that time, the former had already been divorced from Princess Diana for nine years.
