Charles didn’t watch the program, though he was told about it, but Camilla saw it at home with her family. At this point the Queen finally lost her patience and asked her son and daughter-in-law to end the marriage as early as practicable. The divorce could not have been more acrimonious, Richard Allart, who handled it for Charles spent several hours almost every day for several months, closeted with lawyers. By July 1996 a settlement was reached, that was thought to be worth more than seventeen million pounds on a large advice.
St. James’s Palace issued a statement saying, the Prince of Wales had no intention of remarrying, and it was a gesture meant to bridge the divide between the two palaces. A peace offering to the Queen to the public into the Anglican Church, but from Camilla’s perspective it was a giant snub. Despite the fact that both she and Charles were now divorced and technically free, she felt she was being publicly consigned to a box labeled mistress. However they were still managing to see each other, and at least she and Charles could now legitimately go away together, they could even stay with some friends who’d been uncomfortable about inviting them, while they were still married to other people. Otherwise, Camilla stayed largely under the radar, her face was well known and thanks to all the books and tapes and television programs, she’d become one of the most hated women in Britain and was about to become even more infamous when devastating news broke about Dianna’s death in a Paris underpass.
