Tom Parker Bowles: Everyone has a right to protest
Prince William welcomed his stepbrother Tom Parker Bowles’s decision to speak out against his brother’s attack on Queen Camilla, commentator Kinsey Schofield claimed.
Parker Bowles this week hit back at criticism Prince Harry levelled at his mother, insisting there was no “end game” to her romance with King Charles III.
Charles and Camilla famously rekindled their romance whilst married to other people at the end of the 1980s, resulting in the breakdown of both their first marriages.
The Duke of Sussex criticised his stepmother for the role she played in the divorce of his parents in 1996, branding the Queen Consort as a “villain”.
Schofield claimed the Prince of Wales would like to follow in the example of his stepbrother but is limited by the long-standing Royal Family tradition of “never complain, never explain.”

The To Di For host said: “I love that Tom spoke out about this because William would like to. He’s fought for a change in strategy and he’s been shut down.
“And Tom does not have to stay under the never complain, never explain mantra because he’s not a member of the Royal Family.
“He spoke out to defend his mother and I don’t think Camilla was crawling, or desperately trying to get the crown.”
She told Sky News Australia: “Her great-grandmother was Alice Keppel who was happily the mistress of the King – I don’t think she even thought she’d get to marry him let alone be the Queen Consort. So good for her.
Parker Bowles defended his mother’s relationship with the King insisting she simply married the man she had long been in love with rather than pursue some sort of strategy.
He told The News Agents podcast: “I think change happens but I don’t care what anyone says – this wasn’t any sort of end game.
“She married the person she loved and this is what happened.”
In his memoir Spare, the Duke of Sussex claimed he and William “begged” their father not to go through with his plans to marry Camilla in 2005.
He also claimed the King and Camilla agreed with their spin doctor to throw him “right under the bus” in an effort to improve their public standing by leaking stories about his drug use.
Harry also claimed William had also lamented the couple’s PR strategy, writing: “Pa and Camilla’s people had planted a story or stories about him, and Kate, and the kids, and he wasn’t going to take it any more. Give Pa and Camilla an inch, he said, they take a mile.”

The Prince of Wales allegedly demanded the Royal Family adopt a “clear strategy” to best handle the Duke of Sussex following his departure from the royal fold, according to author Robert Jobson.
William took particular issue with his brother and sister-in-law Meghan Markle sharing their frustrations about the monarchy in a 90-minute interview with talk show host Oprah Winfrey in 2021.
Jobson wrote in his book Our King: Charles III: The Man and the Monarch Revealed that William was concerned about the “total of discretion” the couple had showcased.
Jobson wrote: “In the aftermath of the Oprah interview, William went to his father and told him that the Royal Family needed a clear strategy in dealing with the Sussexes, the renegade royals.
“He became a key figure in the ongoing conversations between the Queen and Charles on how to counter the ‘groundless’ verbal attacks.
“Of course, Her Majesty would have the final say, but she needed Charles and William to guide her.”
