Prince William and Harry’s close relationship with step siblings Laura and Tom

Camilla Parker Bowles got some rather famous in-laws when she married Prince Charles in 2005.

But whilst she was thrust into the global spotlight, her children were also made part of one of the most famous families in the world.

Despite being happy to let their mum grab the headlines, Laura Lopes and Tom Parker Bowles are still normally invited to big royal family get-togethers.

The siblings became step brother and sister to Harry and William when Camilla married Charles at Windsor Guildhall all those years ago.

Laura and Tom, her children from her first marriage to Andrew Parker Bowles, are often forgotten by royal fans.

The pair have successful careers and families of their own – meaning Charles and Camilla actually have nine grandchildren in total.

They lead a comparatively private life despite having a step-father who will one day be the King.

Laura Lopes

Laura Lopes was taught at a Catholic boarding school in Dorset, and then went on to study History of Art and Marketing at Oxford Brookes University.

Before she tied the knot with her partner, Laura was a motoring corresponding at Tatler magazine, the Mirror reports.

She then moved into the world of art and managed the Space Gallery in London and co-founded the Eleven Gallery in 2005.

She married Harry Lopes, an accountant, in 2006.

Harry's the son of a baron and is in line to inherit Gnaton Hall in Devon, as well as the Skelpick estate in the Scottish Highlands.

Laura’s stepbrothers Harry and William both attended the wedding.

Laura and Harry have three children – Eliza, born in January 2008, and twins Gus and Louis, born in 2009.

Tom Parker Bowles

Tom Parker Bowles is Camilla’s first born and studied at Eton College, the same school as Harry and William.

He went on to study at Oxford University before becoming a successful food writer.

He also worked at Tatler Magazine, and has a number of cookbooks.

Tom has been the Mail on Sunday’s food critic and over the years been a cookery show judge.

He married fashion editor Sara Buys in September 2005 and the couple have two children Lola and Freddy.
