Following the death of his beloved mother last month, King Charles III credited his wife Camilla, Queen Consort, as being his "rock" at this difficult time.
Now royal commentator Duncan Larcombe has provided insight into why Camilla is "just the right person" to support our new monarch, exclusively telling OK!: "Quite clearly, from the word go when they first met in 1970, there was chemistry between them. Camilla is a mumsy, horsey, country type, who is delightfully posh but doesn’t take herself too seriously.
"She’s just the right person for him, and I think if they’d married in the 1970s, they would have been together all that time."
In his first address to the nation following the Queen's passing, King Charles acknowledged the support the former Duchess of Cornwall has shown him over the past two decades, saying, "I count on the loving help of my darling wife, Camilla. In recognition of her own loyal public service since our marriage 17 years ago, she becomes my Queen Consort.
He added: "I know she will bring to the demands of her new role the steadfast devotion to duty on which I have come to rely so much."
The King's heartfelt comments and high praise of Camilla come as no surprise, given that she has stood by him through thick and thin as his loving companion and confidante. In fact, other than his siblings, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward, Camilla has known Charles longer than anyone.
Duncan reveals that he has witnessed how much happier Charles has been since he and Camilla wed in 2005, telling us, “When Charles married Camilla, he could finally break free of the burden and baggage that he had carried for most of his life.
"It took the public a bit of getting used to seeing her officially at his side, but people have warmed to her now. I went on Charles’ last tour before he married her and it was a horrible tour. He could appear miserable and very serious. He’s different now he’s got Camilla by his side.”
