Harry and Meghan have endured a tense relationship with the Firm after they stepped down from royal duties in January last year. The pair widened tensions after they were deeply critical of royal life and made a number of claims against the family in a two-hour CBS interview with Oprah. In the infamous interview Harry claimed that Prince Charles had cut him off financially and stopped taking his calls.

Then, in AppleTV+ documentary The Me You Can’t See, released a month later the Duke of Sussex was critical of the way Charles allowed him to be exposed to media scrutiny growing up. 

He said: “My father used to say to me when I was younger, he used to say to both William and I, ‘Well it was like that for me, so it’s going to be like that for you.’

“That doesn’t make sense! Just because you suffered, that doesn’t mean your kids have to suffer.”

Harry and Meghan’s acrimonious exit has come during a tumultuous time for the Royal Family.

Camilla, whose husband Charles is the heir to the throne, will allegedly never forgive Harry and Meghan for leaving the Firm. 

In a Telegraph article published in August, a source claimed to journalist Camilla Tominey: “I don’t think the Duchess will ever forgive Meghan for what she’s done to the Prince of Wales.”

Buckingham Palace have said in various statements the Duke and Duchess of Sussex remain “much-loved members of the family”.

The source added: “When [Charles] becomes King, she’ll understand the need to be by his side and I don’t think she’s daunted by that.

“It is not an exaggeration to say she has been his rock throughout this crisis.”

Camilla has become a more popular and central figure in the Royal Family in the past 18 months, and according to a YouGov poll published in August, she is the tenth most popular member of the Firm. 

The Duchess of Cornwall who married Charles in 2005, received a less than warm welcome among some, due to her private affair with the heir apparent.

Many people viewed her as the reason for the breakdown of his marriage with Princess Diana.

However, over the years she has garnered praise for her unrelenting support of her husband, Charles. 

In BBC documentary ‘Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers’ Camilla said she took inspiration from the Duke of Edinburgh in how he “quietly” carried out his role in supporting his spouse. 

She said: “I saw that he supported the Queen, not in a flashy sort of way, but just by doing it quietly, following along behind. 

“It’s something that I’ve learnt by watching him.”

On regal-themed podcast Pod Save the Queen, royal expert Russell Myers noted that Camilla was given a “hard time” at the beginning of her royal life, but has since become one of “the darlings of the Firm”.

Mr Myers said last month: “If you remember nobody wanted Camilla on the scene and she had a pretty hard time of it integrating herself within the fold. 

“She’s gone on to be one of the darlings of the Firm, both inside and outside, and she’s very highly respected for the work she does and the way she carries herself.

“It’s very interesting that she’s taken the level of support and awareness of her role from the Duke of Edinburgh. 

“And no doubt there was an awful lot of love and respect there, and you really saw that shine through.”
