After twenty-two years of marriage, Camilla and Bowles ended their friendship and filed for divorce in 1995. Nearly a decade after her separation from her first husband, Camilla married Prince Charles, and the couple has been together ever since.

According to Penny Junor, a British royal biographer, Camilla has made Prince Charles incredibly happy over the years. Junor also added that Camilla's love for Prince Charles saved him, the British monarchy, and the Windsor dynasty itself. 

With their union going into its sixteenth year, there is no doubt that Camilla has indeed made Prince Charles a happy man, and in return, the royal family is showering her with plenty of love."
