Did Prince William call on his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II for assistance smoothing things over between his father Prince Charles and his parents-in-law, Michael and Carole Middleton?

After her genocide in 1997, “the brothers had to cope with a stability assault of open revelations about their parents’ unfaithful relationships,” Bower writes. Charles’ contingent matrimony to his mistress, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, didn’t assistance — her participation “a consistent sign of their mother’s torment.”

While Charles might have disturbed about William and Kate “taking a limelight,” Camilla was “unconcerned.”
