Camilla Parker, the Duchess of Cornwall, received her title after her marriage to Prince Charles. However, she has garnered quite the reputation long before she was a part of the royal family. Media was quick to jump on the fact that the Duchess was allegedly romantically involved with the Prince long before their marriage. This, at the time, was heavily criticized and caught worldwide attention.
After her marriage to Prince Charles, the Duchess of Cornwall has been assisting the royal family with their official duties and has taken on philanthropic work such as raising awareness for sexual harassment, rape, animal welfare, and poverty.
