                                            Student Sample



  Born Camilla Shand, on July 17, 1947, in London, Prince Charles’ companion was educated in London, Switzerland, and France.
         “Milla,” as her friends call her, met Charles in the early 1970s, and their friendship grew into a romance.  Thinking that the Prince would never marry her, Milla married someone else in 1975 and had two children.
         But her friendship with the Prince endured, deepened even, and Camilla became a constant in his life, even after his wedding in July 1981 to Lady Diana Spencer. After it was revealed that the fairytale marriage was not without its difficulties, Charles and Diana announced their separation in December 1992. Camilla, still a trusted member of the Prince’s inner circle, offered Charles the support and comfort he could find nowhere else.  After Diana’s death, Prince
  Charles began appearing in public with Milla.  Will they ever marry? 

For now, Milla wears an “M” for “MISTRESS.”
