Birthdays for Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall (1947) and German Chancellor Angela Merkel (1954)

Camilla is slightly older than Prince Charles. She was born on 17th July 1947 and he on 14th November 1948.  They are distantly related, being ninth cousins once removed. Camilla’s great grandmother Alice Keppel was a long-term mistress of Charles’s great-great-grandfather, Queen Victoria’s son, and heir King Edward the Seventh.

Camilla and Prince Charles first met in 1971 when they were introduced by a mutual friend. They both enjoyed the sport of polo and soon became a couple. However, Charles was sent overseas in 1973 as part of his service in the Royal Navy. This may have been a method of ending his relationship with Camilla, who was not considered a suitable match for him by some in royal circles. In July 1973, when Charles was away, she married Andrew Parker Bowles at a high society wedding with 800 guests.
