In Mrs. Camilla Parker-Bowles, did Prince Charles find the mother figure he needs who can coddle him and his fragile ego?

Penny Junor has said that Mrs. Parker-Bowles has the same type of matronly dowdy look of Charles’ childhood nanny who coddled him and his ego. She also said that Charles’ mother, the queen, was emotionally unavailable so Charles turned to his nanny, his gran the queen mum, and then to Mrs. Parker-Bowles as surrogates for the maternal love he craves.

    Yes, when he was younger, he dated a lot of women his own age but, there was not one of them who would be prepared to take on the impossible task, of pandering to him, his extreme pomposity and the fragile ego he possesses. He finally found a beautiful, EXTREMELY naïve young girl, one who loved the idea of being a princess but, one who needed a father figure. Both got what they wanted but nothing of what they needed. Even when the Queen was trying to patch things up between them, he told her that he was quite prepared to remain with Diana and stay married but, the ending of the relationship between him and Camilla was "not an option". He wanted EVERYTHING his own way, like a stubborn petulant little child. Well, he got his own way and has the wife of choice but, one who is both loathed and reviled by the majority.

    The Duchess of Cornwall doesn't strike me as a coddler.

    Penny Junor has that opinion. Charles is a sensitive sort, but for him, Camilla is a nurturing supporter, not a mother/nanny figure.

    Junor often over-reaches when she writes about the Camilla-Charles connection. Charles sought mentors of both genders, supporters of both genders, people who could help him.

    Charles had/ has family who understood his sensitivity--Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother was the family member most available to him as his mother was busy at her job. As he matured, Charles learned about himself, his preferences, sensitivities. Although he admired his father, he knew that he had to take a different approach to life than Philip, a much-more gruff, rough and tumble personality, a man who didn't requite a lot of positive feedback and support.

    Charles looked to his grandmother, his great-uncle, and friends for added support. Camilla happened to be a friend who listened to, and encouraged him, was positive and optimistic, warm and supportive.

    Well, darling, evidently YOU'VE found something in Camilla that you need, given that you post about her constantly. It's so sweet.

    Does she remind you of your mummy?

    He has a fetish for tampons and, obviously, for women who resemble the crone who gives the poisoned apple to Snow White in the classic Disney film, who smoke like a chimney, drink like a fish, and curse like a sailor. That’s Camilla. She surely coddles the massive insecure ego he’s known for. Everyone around him would be required to do that.

    He found something in her that he needs, or he wouldn't keep returning to it.

    So you take everything Penny Junor says as 'gospel'? If she likes to see their relationship as that, that's up to her. I happen to totally disagree. Many people think men marry 'their mothers'. I hope my husband doesn't see me as remotely like his mother!!!

    Once she became Queen, HM wasn't emotionally unavailable, she was physically not there much of the time and Charles/his sister were left with the Queen Mother in charge. It has been suggested that unfortunately for her children, the Queen had to concentrate on her public duties, perhaps more than her family. As a result, Charles especially had a very close relationship with his grandmother - as actually many children outside the Royal Family do.

    Nonsense. Do you want to be your mother's tampon? Maybe you do.

    No such person as camilla parker-bowles, her name changed when she married, they have known each other since the 70's, she is not in any way a mother figure to him, they just love each other, a lot of pain all around would have been avoided if they married in the 70's.

    It's unnatural to be brought up under these sorts of circumstances. A mother needs to be a mother, a father needs to be a father. If 2 people decide on having children then they must act like parents and don't pass off the children onto someone else. If this is what happened to Prince Charles and his 2 brothers and sister, then I'm sure they were just as much harmed by this family tradition.

    The true story of the British royal prince locked away because of having epilepsy and I'm sure this child had this condition because of emotional stress due to Royal Family Tradition and Dynamic.
