Looks like Prince Charles is not happy just giving his wife Camilla a royal title and a lavish home, Clarence House. Now he wants to go a step further and make a pub in her name.
The 67-year-old British royal has once again shown his disrespect for his first wife Princess Diana, even after her death. This is not the first time Prince Charles has ignored Diana’s role in his life.
He is now paying tribute to his other wife, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall by calling her “the most important woman” he’s ever met. Apart from the 69-year-old, another important woman of his life is the late Queen Mother.
The heir to the throne wants a statue of the late Queen Mother to be erected in the square named in her honor at Poundbury, his model town in Dorset. The statue is by renowned sculptor Philip Jackson.
Interestingly, the statue will be placed opposite a pub named after Charles’s wife, Camilla. The contract to design the interiors of the gastro pub has been awarded to Camilla’s sister, Annabel Elliot.
“It’s typical of Charles. He has managed to find a way to pay tribute to his beloved grandmother and his wife, and still make a mint for his sister-in-law,” said a source close to the royal family, talking to Daily Mail.
This decision of Prince Charles clearly shows that he refuses to acknowledge Princess Diana and her contribution to the royal family. He could have decided to honor the mother of his two sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, but he chose otherwise.
Even after Princess Diana’s death almost 19 years ago, Prince Charles still reportedly holds lot of grudge against the ‘People’s Princess’.
How much ever Charles, the queen and the royal family tries to put Camilla in the spotlight, she is still “the mistress who broke Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s marriage” for the public, according to Celebrity Dirty Laundry.
Princess Diana’s popularity with the British public is so huge that Camilla still remains in the princess’s shadow. Unlike Camilla, Diana worked hard to win the hearts of people with her charity work, charisma and kindness.
