A child Camille Parker Bowles together with the rest of the royal family attended the funeral ceremony dedicated to the British Queen Elizabeth. In the past, there were not many opportunities to do so Laura Lopes and Tom Parker Bowles attended public events, but this time they made an exception. In a recent interview with Good Morning Britain, Tom said that he and Laura are not exactly part of the royal family, adding: “My mom married into her. She’s part of it. We’re just normal kids. We’re just on the sidelines.”
A few years before, he said in one of the statements that he had always loved Charles. “I’ve always adored my stepfather. He’s always been a kind, good and loving man. He’s a man of warmth, intelligence and humanity, and I think if that ever happens, he’ll make a fantastic king.”
Not much is known about their relationship with the royal family, but she is the author Katie Nicholl wrote in her book about Harry and William, which she published in 2010, that William and Laura never got along well. “William and Laura argued about who was to blame for their broken homes. William blamed Camilla for all the pain she caused his mother, which always angered Laura, who always blamed William for Charles ruining her life.”
