    大乐透最近500期走势图:Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles's Royal Love Story: From the '70s to Today

    Looking back at all the ups and downs of the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall's decades-long romance.

    Before Prince Charles married Princess Diana (then Diana Spencer) in 1981, he was apparently already smitten with one of his former girlfriends, Camilla Parker Bowles (then Camilla Shand).

    Charles and Camilla's romance has been well-documented, with the pair finally marrying in April 2005 after a long courtship. Here, we take a look at the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall's love story, from their very first meeting to their happy family life now.

    1970: They reportedly met at a polo match.

    Reports about the couple's first meeting vary slightly, although it's believed that they met in the early '70s. Prince Charles met Camilla Shand at a polo match in Windsor Great Park in 1970, per the BBC. But according to People, "When she met the Prince at a party in 1972, Camilla Shand, then a 25-year-old postdeb living in London, told him sassily, 'My great-grandmother was the mistress of your great-great-grandfather. I feel we have something in common.'" No matter which version of the event is true, there was most definitely a spark.

    Charles joined the Royal Navy in 1971, and despite beginning to date Camilla, the relationship apparently cooled when the prince returned to duty. People reported, "Although the smitten prince courted her for six months, he failed to propose before returning to sea in February 1973."

    1973: Camilla married Andrew Parker Bowles.

    Camilla had actually met her first husband, Andrew Parker Bowles, at a party in 1965, author Penny Junor revealed in her book, The Duchess: Camilla Parker Bowles and the Love Affair That Rocked the Crown. However, they broke up, and Andrew reportedly began an affair with Princess Anne, according to Harper's BAZAAR UK, which quoted Junor's book. Junor even suggested that had Andrew not taken up with Anne, Camilla would never have dated Prince Charles.

    Camilla and Andrew eventually rekindled their relationship after Charles left for naval duties. They were married on July 4, 1973.

    Camilla and Andrew subsequently had two children together, daughter Laura Parker Bowles and son Tom Parker Bowles. Fun fact: Charles is Tom's godfather (per E! News).

    1977: Charles met Diana for the first time.

    When Lady Diana first met Charles, he was dating her sister, Lady Sarah (née Spencer, now McCorquodale). Diana was just 16 years old at the time. The Guardian described McCorquodale as "a former girlfriend of Prince Charles," and quoted her as saying, "I introduced them. I'm Cupid."

    In a TV interview following her engagement to Charles in 1981, Diana said of that first meeting, "It was 1977, Charles came to stay. He was a friend of my sister Sarah's. [He came] for a [hunting] shoot. We sort of met in a plowed field."

    Diana and Charles's engagement was announced on February 24, 1981, and they were married just a few months later on July 29. Diana had just turned 20, while Prince Charles was 32.

    In 1991, Diana revealed to biographer Andrew Morton that at her wedding, she'd looked for Camilla in the congregation. She revealed (per Good Housekeeping), "I knew she was in there, of course. I looked for her." She continued, "So walking down the aisle, I spotted Camilla, pale gray, veiled pillbox hat." Charles and Diana, of course, had two children: William in 1982 and Harry in 1984.

    1986: Charles reportedly restarted his affair with Camilla.

    Having allegedly had an on-off connection in the years preceding, Charles and Camilla allegedly rekindled their physical relationship in 1986, despite both being married and raising families, per People.

    In a 1995 interview for BBC One's Panorama, Diana famously said, "There were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded," and reportedly told Morton that she'd even confronted Camilla about the affair to little avail.

    1993: Recordings of private conversations between Camilla and Charles leaked.

    In early 1993, an intimate conversation between Camilla and Charles was leaked, confirming the couple's illicit relationship. Recorded in 1989, the release of the tapes caused a huge scandal for the royal family.

    The Mirror published a transcript of the often-raucous conversation, and the revelations contained within ultimately led to the dissolution of Charles's marriage to Diana, and Camilla's marriage to Andrew. Camilla filed for divorce in January 1995, while Charles and Diana finalized their divorce in August 1996.

    1994: Charles called Camilla "a great friend of mine."

    In a TV documentary that aired in 1994, Charles admitted to his affair with Camilla (per The New York Times), and called her "a great friend of mine." He continued, "She has been a friend for a very long time—and will continue to be a friend for a very long time."

    1997: Diana's death rocked the world.

    Diana tragically passed away on August 31, 1997, following a traffic collision in Paris. Diana was 36 years old, and the crash also claimed the lives of her partner, businessman Dodi Fayed, and the driver, Henri Paul.

    1998: Charles introduced Camilla to his sons.

    It was reported by The Guardian in 1998 that "royal aides confirmed Prince William had met his father's companion Camilla Parker Bowles for the first time." Per the publication, "A transparent campaign to 'introduce' Mrs Parker Bowles to public life began after Charles's divorce. But it was abandoned following the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, last year." Prince Harry is alleged to have met Camilla at a later date.

    However, not everyone in the royal family approved of Charles's public relationship with Camilla. The Los Angeles Times revealed that, when it came to Charles's 50th birthday party, "Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip disapprove of their son's once-adulterous relationship with Parker Bowles and stayed away."

    1999: Charles and Camilla appeared in public together as a couple for the very first time.

    Having thrown a birthday party for Camilla's sister at the Ritz in London, Camilla and Charles were photographed together for the first time as a couple.

    2000: The queen agreed to finally meet Camilla.

    According to the BBC, Queen Elizabeth refused to meet Camilla for a long time, despite Charles being serious about her. However, that all changed when the queen accepted an invitation to the King Constantine of Greece's 60th birthday party at Charles's residence, Highgrove. Queen Elizabeth's agreeing to finally meet her son's partner was apparently a huge step forward for the royal family and for public relations.

    2001: Charles and Camilla kissed in public.

    At an event for the National Osteoporosis Society at Somerset House in London, Charles and Camilla were photographed embracing and kissing, proving that their relationship was getting more serious.

    2005: Charles married Camilla.

    Charles announced his engagement to Camilla in February 2005, having lived with her at Clarence House from 2003.

    On April 9, 2005, Charles and Camilla tied the knot in a civil ceremony at Windsor Guildhall. The ceremony was followed by an official blessing from the Archbishop of Canterbury at St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle.

    Though it's unclear if Camilla will become queen (or queen consort) when her husband ascends the throne, it is clear that the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall have come a long way since their very first meeting.
