Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall GCVO (Camilla Rosemary; née Shand, previously Parker Bowles; born 17 July 1947) is the second wife of Charles, Prince of Wales, and member of the British Royal Family. By her second marriage she shares her husband's titles as Duchess of Cornwall, Duchess of Rothesay, Countess of Chester and Baroness of Renfrew. Although she is the Princess of Wales because of her marriage to the Prince of Wales, she prefers to be known by the secondary titles of Duchess of Cornwall and Duchess of Rothesay out of respect for her husband's first wife, the late Diana, Princess of Wales. She chooses to be known as the Duchess of Rothesay in Scotland, and as the Duchess of Cornwall elsewhere.
As he is the future Supreme Governor of the Church of England, the prospect of Charles marrying a divorcée was seen as controversial, but with the consent of Elizabeth II, Parliament and the Church of England, the couple were able to wed.
The Duchess had two children from her marriage to Andrew Parker Bowles and has five grandchildren.
