Prince Charles and Camilla got married on April 9, 2005 and celebrated their 17th wedding anniversary over the weekend. Although, this year, the day would have been bittersweet for the couple as it was exactly one year since the passing of his Charles’ late father, the Duke of Edinburgh. Speaking on the latest episode of the Royally Obsessed podcast, hosts Roberta Fiorito and Rachel Bowie discussed the April 9 royal clash.
Ms Fiorito said: “The only other mention I want to make about April 9, it is does overlap with Charles and Camilla’s wedding anniversary”
“Also looking back on royal history, they are celebrating 17 years together”
“They got married on April 9, 2005”.
Ms Bowie added: “I don’t want to laugh this because we are talking a sad this week in royal history, but its just ‘of course, its Charles”
“Where his wedding anniversary is also his dad’s passing”.
Ms Bowie continued: “You (Roberta) and I were kind of like ‘it would be Charles”.
“Poor Charles”, claims Rachel.
Ms Bowie said: “He can’t catch a break”
“It is a very somber occasion you can’t control”.
The pair also mentioned how the royal couple postponed their wedding in 2005 after the death of Pope John Paul II.
