How must Prince William truly feel about his father?

Prince William appears to be a doting husband who truly loves his wife. His father Charles never loved William’s mother in the way a man should love the woman he asks to marry him and bear his children. William appears to not be having an affair. Charles, of course, had the infamous affair with Camilla the wife of Brigadier Andrew Parker Bowles. 

How must William feel about how the kind of husband his father was to his mother?

    It seems that William is following in his father's footsteps.

     Apparantly, William had an affair with his wife's best friend, Rose Hanbury. She  is the Marchioness of Cholmondeley. The affair was exposed by Giles Coren, a British journalist back in March 2019.

    Rose was Kate's closest friend, and Rose's husband, David Rocksavage was a good friend of Williams. They nicknamed themselves "The Turnip Toffs" and regularly met up to socialize together.

    When Kate found out about the affair, she cut all ties with Rose and demanded that William exclude Rose and her husband from their social circle.

    Since then, Rose is now divorced from her husband. 

    Kate has lost a lot of weight since the birth of Louis, and also since the discovery of her husband's infidelity. she looks rather gaunt  and miserable but seems to be putting a brave front on.

    William is aware of the relationship that his parents had; as a child he would ask his father why he was mean to his mother...and as he grew up and matured, he could see that his parents just weren't as suited to one another as they had hoped, that both parents were responsible for the state of their marriage.

    William could learn from his parents' mistakes. He was very careful to make sure that Catherine was not only the one for him, but that she would be able to handle the royal life. So, while William loves his father, he was able to see the mistakes made by his father, and try not to repeat the mistakes.

    William loves Camilla for how she has treated his father, helped him be a happier person. While he respects Camilla, they are not very close. Camilla knows boundaries and has been careful not to cross them, to be pushy. She is there is William wants help or advice and he appreciates her not being pushy.

    William seems happy about his father and he gets on well with him. What happened before is water under the bridge, gone and forgotten.

    William, like the MAJORITY in this country, has MOVED ON.   I don't suppose he spends much time thinking about that tragic marriage now and knows his father is only human.   He and Harry accepted Camilla a very long time ago - and I'd imagine, if Harry thinks anything about his family now (?), William at least is glad that his father is now happy - which is obvious when you compare photos of him with Diana (and her) with him with Camilla.

  • Charles should have been allowed to marry Camilla in 1973. The Queen made him abandon the relationship and packed him off on a Royal Navy tour of duty. If that had happened, the whole sorry saga of Diana would never have started, Camilla would not have been placed in a nominal marriage with Peter Parker Bowles and their children, Tom and Laura would be heirs to the throne. By the time William was in a relationship with a commoner, Royal protocol had moved on and they were allowed to marry. His brother was allowed to marry an American divorcee - something that forced his great-great uncle to abdicate.

      If anybody did any 'packing off', it was the Queen Mother and Mountbatten who didn't want Charles to marry Camilla. The Queen just did what her mother wanted - it was she who ruled the roost in the RF at the time. And Charles respected both.

    Just as a lot of children must feel when they find that their parents' marriage has failed and they have each found other partners. They know no different so it is simply how it is, and the indications are that he has accepted his father's second wife better than many children do, Diana included.

    Prince William will soon realise his mistake. I don't think Diana would appreciate but if she did when she was alive then there's nothing I can say.

      Catherine has been quite successful in her work and marriage--you must be confusing William with Harry.
