God save the queen consort.
Although she is often seen as a royal nest-breaker, some experts believe the Queen’s current consort is not being shaken fairly. Controversial royal biographer Angela Levin claims Camilla Rosemary Shand was treated unfairly by both Prince Harry and Netflix series The Crown.
The royal scribe dropped the alleged bombshell on Britain’s morning show Lorraine following the release of her biopic Camilla, From Outcast to Queen Consort, the Daily Mail reported.
Levin said she wrote the book to celebrate King Charles III’s mistress. to clarify what, in her view, had been wrongly defamed in the past.
“I decided I needed to rebalance things,” Levin explained. “One was ‘The Crown,’ who was really cruel to her, and the other was Prince Harry, who had also said some really nasty things about her.”
The biographer has not specified what Prince Harry’s specific statements were. However, the former Duke of Sussex is reportedly “not a fan” of Camilla, who had a long-running affair with his father, King Charlie III, while he was still married to Harry and William’s mother, Princess Diana. Since then, Camilla, who married the current monarch in 2005, has been portrayed in a bad light by the public and blamed for the split between Diana and King Charles.
The Queen consort was portrayed in a way critics found unsympathetic in season 4 of The Crown, which explores the love triangle between Camilla, then-Prince Charles and Princess Diana – although Camilla reportedly agreed with the portrayal.
Elsewhere in the interview, Levin – who spent three months with Camilla to write a lengthy article in 2015 – mentioned that the queen consort had invited her to meet the queen to demonstrate that “despite rumours, the couple have a close bond.” would have”.
During the visit, the then-Duchess said she had a “surprise for her,” Levin said.
“I got the call to meet the Duchess and of course I dropped everything,” said the documentary maker, who then went to Buckingham Palace where “Camilla was there with the Queen.”
“They took me to the stables where an 80-year-old horse expert was,” she continued. “He was supposed to have the ability to make a horse that’s never been ridden before ridden after 20 minutes bareback or something, which I didn’t think was on, but here we go.”
“The idea of them talking and laughing non-stop,” Levin recalled, adding that the encounter shattered any preconceived notions about Camille’s relationship with the queen.
“I thought afterwards that would be so smart and so nice,” she said. “She didn’t have to say anything inappropriate as there were rumors they didn’t get along. Without saying a word, Camilla showed me that she and the Queen had a close bond – evident through their shared love of horses.”
Levin also praised the Queen Consort for her behind-the-scenes charity work, explaining that this makes her “great for Charles” because Charles doesn’t get jealous like he did with his first wife, but who does a tremendous amount of work behind the scenes — she needs no praise for yourself.”
“The more you get to know her,” she gushed, “the more you like her.”
