It’s been twenty years since Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles stepped out in public together for the first time, and nearly fourteen years since Camilla became Prince William and Prince Harry’s stepmom. But, according to a new report, the princes have never visited Ray Mill, Camilla’s home in Wiltshire.
Both William and Harry have spoken admirably of Camilla, calling her a “wonderful woman.” Insiders say that behind the scenes, the Duchess of Cornwall and her stepsons are not close.

“Though to all outward appearances she has the support and friendship of Prince William and Prince Harry, privately there is a distance,” says Royal biographer Christopher Wilson.
This latest claim comes after reports surfaced that it is possible Prince William and Prince Harry have never forgiven Camilla for her affair with their dad while he was married to their mom, the late Princess Diana.
If Camilla has plans of becoming Queen when her husband ascends to the throne, she will need the backing of William and Harry. It is not clear if they are on board with their stepmom becoming Queen or Princess Consort.
Inside sources say that William and Harry “don’t have a good word for Camilla,” and the only influence Prince Charles has over them is “the fact that he controls their money.”
According to The Express, there have also been rumors of a feud between Camilla, William, and Kate Middleton over the future of the Royal family after Queen Elizabeth passes.
Charles and Camilla have known each other for more than 40 years, and their romance most likely began before Charles married Diana. When William and Harry were kids, they kept their affair a secret, and it wasn’t until Charles and Camilla married in 2005 that their relationship was accepted by the Royal family.
There have also been recent claims from a man named Simon Dorante-Day that he is the secret love child of Charles and Camilla. Dorante-Day says that Camilla got pregnant before Charlesl married Diana, but she gave the baby up for adoption before anyone found out.
The 52-year-old says that Diana knew of his existence, but her tragic death in 1997 kept the truth from getting out.

Dorante-Day was born in England on April 5, 1966, and the Royal family has not acknowledged his claims. But he says he has proof. His original birth certificate has fake names for the biological parents, his adoptive parents worked for Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip at the time of his birth, and his teenage pics show a remarkable resemblance to Camilla’s son Tom Parker Bowles.
“I was very close to my grandmother, and she told me many times that I was Camilla and Charles’ child,” Dorante-Day said. “She didn’t just hint at it, she told me outright.”
Prince Harry and Prince William have not commented on the rumors surrounding their relationship with Camilla Parker Bowles.
