Camilla Parker Bowles Reveals She Has 1 Major Complaint About Prince Charles

There’s no denying that the future king Prince Charles is madly in love with his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall. Their relationship was one of the most controversial in the world not so long ago. But now people have really come around to the idea of Charles and Camilla as couple goals.

However, just because Camilla adores the Prince of Wales, it doesn’t mean she loves every single thing about him. Recently, the Duchess of Cornwall revealed one interesting complaint she has about her husband of 15 years.

Camilla Parker Bowles thinks Prince Charles works too much

Queen Elizabeth and Prince William might be more popular among citizens, but no one can deny Prince Charles’s commendable work ethic. He performed hundreds of engagements last year and even amid the 2020 pandemic environment, he’s not slowing down one bit.

But not everyone is thrilled that the Prince of Wales is obsessed with working. His wife Camilla was hoping they could enjoy a bit of break during the shelter in place orders. But she was wrong.

“My husband is a workaholic, so he works wherever he is, he is sitting at his desk now working away,” Camilla said, according to Express. “We try to do something for our charities most days to try and give them a little bit of encouragement and just try and lend our support.”  

Fans were amused by Prince Charles’s messy desk

There’s physical proof of Charles’s excessive work habits, too. Recently, fans were floored to see how messy the Prince of Wales’s desk looked during a video call, with papers strewn everywhere and a clutter of photographs and mementos all around.

It’s logical to wonder if Prince Charles kept his desk tidier that maybe he wouldn’t have to work so much. But we don’t know that for sure.

Camilla said she’s keeping busy in other ways

While her husband Prince Charles is busy doing phone calls and rifling through papers, Camilla is also keeping busy — but in a different way.

The 72-year-old royal said she’s been exercising more, incorporating walks, yoga, and Pilates into her daily routine. She also joined Silver Swan ballet lessons as a joke but loves the classes and says she’s been improving her dance skills.

“We’ve all got to keep active,” Camilla wisely advised, referring to seniors. “If we don’t we’ll seize up and won’t be able to get out of bed in the morning.”

Camilla supports Prince Charles and his work ethic

Though she may be slightly critical of her husband’s workaholic tendencies, ultimately she supports his decisions and loves him just the way she is. Before the pandemic forced the mass cancellation of royal engagements, the Duchess of Cornwall accompanied the future king on his many tours and other official royal visits.

And as she said, staying active in older age is the key to staying sharp and limber. Which will come in handy when Prince Charles ascends the throne in the near future.
