Meet All The Grandchildren Of Camilla, Queen Consort

After years of being known as the "other woman," Camilla Parker Bowles now carries the title of Queen Consort to King Charles III. As royal spectators and superfans of "The Crown" will know, she was the longtime lover of Prince Charles of Wales throughout the 1980s and 90s, even after his doomed marriage to Princess Diana in their showstopping 1981 ceremony. The love triangle was a goldmine for the British tabloids, and the public followed the drama up to the bitter end, mourning Princess Diana after her tragic death in 1997 and looking on with wonder as Camilla and Charles finally wed in 2005 (via Harper's Bazaar). 

The stain of the extramarital affair has not been easy for Camilla to shake off. However, before her death, Queen Elizabeth II signaled to the British public that it was time to finally welcome Camilla into the fray, announcing in February of 2022 that it was her wish for Camilla to officially adopt the title of Queen Consort – a title often given to women married to a reigning king – once Charles ascends to the throne (via the BBC). 

With this upgrade in title, many may wonder, who is this woman now sitting by one of the most powerful men in the world? In addition to being a wife, mother, and stepmother to Prince William and Prince Harry, Camilla is also a doting grandmother. Let's get to know Camilla by breaking down just who these youngsters in her life are. 

Lola Parker Bowles

The first time Camilla became a grandmother was to Lola Parker Bowles, the daughter of her oldest son, Tom Parker Bowles. The blonde beauty was born in October of 2007 to Tom and his wife, fashion writer and editor Sara Buys. Little is known about Lola's personal life, but she has been photographed on several occasions with her parents. In 2023, she will turn 15 years old. (via Town & Country). 

Though the family is relatively private, they have occasionally opened up to the media about their personal relationships. In 2019, Tom sat down with Town & Country to give a sneak peek into what Christmas gatherings are like in the Parker Bowles household. He says, "Even now, we all drive down to be together. My mother's up with my stepfather, and she comes down on Christmas Day straight after the Queen's speech. So it's very much a family thing." One can imagine that these family Christmases became even more special after Lola's arrival. 

Town & Country would later speculate that Lola was the granddaughter Camilla gave a shout-out to in an interview with "British Vogue," discussing how she bonds with her grandchildren. "I do Wordle every day with my granddaughter," Camilla says. "She'll text me to say, 'I've done it in three,' and I say, 'Sorry, I've done it in two today.' It's very satisfactory when it tells you how brilliant you are." (via Vogue).

Eliza Lopes

Only one year after Lola's birth, in 2008, the Parker Bowles family welcomed another grandchild into the fold – a beautiful baby girl named Eliza Lopes. She was the first child born to Camilla's daughter, Laura Lopes and her husband, the Calvin Klein model turned financier, Harry Lopes (via Hello!). The Lopeses first tied the knot in 2006, meaning they enjoyed three years as a married duo before welcoming their daughter into the world (via Town & Country). 

In 2011, Eliza stepped into the spotlight as one of four flower girls at Kate Middleton and Prince William's wedding. She was joined by Prince Edward's oldest child, Lady Louise Windsor, Margarita Armstrong-Jones, the granddaughter of Princess Margaret, and Grace van Cutsem, the daughter of a family friend named Hugh van Cutsem. (via Vogue). The little aristocrat was only 3-years-old when she strolled down the aisle of the chapel of Westminster Abbey. 

In the future, Eliza and her siblings will inherit two stately homes from their parents. Interestingly, this inheritance does not come from their grandmother Camilla but from their father's side of the family. As a descendent of the 2nd Baron Roborough, Eliza's father Harry Lopes will one day inherit two great estates — Gnaton Hall located in Devon and Skelpick Estate in the Scottish highlands. If the line of succession is to continue, Eliza and her twin brothers (who we'll get to in a moment) will inherit these homes one day.

Louis Lopes

The Queen Consort's family grew twofold in 2009 when Laura Lopes and her husband Harry welcomed twin boys into the world. With their daughter Eliza only being one-year-old at the time of the twins' birth, the happy couple perhaps got more than they bargained for with the arrival of two infants at once, but, like countless parents before them, they found a rhythm that worked for them. The twins, Gus and Louis, will turn 14 in 2023 (via Town & Country). 

Unlike his step-cousin of the same name, Louis Lopes has stayed firmly out of the public eye. The son of the Prince and Princess of Wales, Prince Louis, was introduced to the public on the very evening of his birth, when the royal couple greeted photographers on the front steps of the famous Lindo Wing with their new bundle of joy in hand. According to Hello!, the couple had not even released Louis's name at the time of his grand reveal on April 23, 2018.  

Laura and Harry Lopes, on the other hand, have cultivated a different relationship with the British press, preferring to keep their children out of the spotlight. While not much is known about Louis Lopes, one can imagine that it does get a bit confusing from time to time sharing a name with the youngest Prince of Wales. One thing it appears the two youngsters do have in common, however, is a loving relationship with their grandmother Camilla (via My London News).

Gus Lopes

Gus Lopes entered the world alongside his twin brother Louis on December 30, 2009. The Capricorn babies, born at the tail end of the year, were celebrated by Clarence House at the time of their birth. The office of King Charles III — who at the time was known as Prince Charles — announced the twins' birth, their birth date, and a health report on January 1, 2010. The statement from Clarence House shared that both Laura Lopes and her newborns were doing well and that Camilla was "absolutely delighted" by the new arrivals (via The Sydney Morning Herald). 

Like his brother Louis, Gus Lopes also keeps a low profile. In stark contrast to his step-cousins, the Princes and Princess of Wales, life for Gus has so far consisted of significantly fewer camera flashes and tabloid attention. However, he and his brother have been spotted by the paparazzi at a collection of public outings throughout the years. In 2014, the Lopes twins were photographed in a laughing embrace with their mother and grandmother, sporting brightly colored raincoats and galoshes to protect them from the rainy British weather (via Cambridgeshire Live News).

Gus was also spotted in his mother's arms at the Trooping the Colour ceremony in 2011 (via Getty Images). No wonder the family gave the public a rare glimpse at their children for this special occasion, as Trooping the Colour is an important yearly ceremony celebrating the 'official birthday' of the British Sovereign (via The Royal Family).

Freddy Parker Bowles

The very next year, in February of 2010, Camilla and her family celebrated the arrival of a fifth grandchild, a little boy named Frederick Parker Bowles. Born to Camilla's son Tom Parker Bowles and his wife Sara Buys, Freddy was the couple's second child, joining his sister Lola, who was only three at the time of her brother's birth. Despite his royal-sounding first name, the youngster is reportedly known as simply "Freddy" amongst the family (via The Daily Mirror). 

At the time of Freddy's birth, the Parker Bowles family was already famously blended. With Camilla's headline-making divorce from Andrew Parker Bowles and her subsequent marriage to King Charles III, she assured that her grandchildren would know that family is more than blood. In addition to enjoying this familial connection to the new King of England, Freddy, his sister, and his cousins would have also been introduced to a new step-parent in 2018. 

Freddy's parents decided to non-legally separate when he was only eight years old, with Tom finding love again not long after with journalist Alice Procope. Though the details of their family dynamics have been kept out of the public eye, one can imagine that Freddy and Lola were both introduced to this important figure in their father's life. Tragically, Alice tragically passed away in 2021 after a battle with cancer, meaning Freddy has already known a whirlwind family life at just 12 years old (via The Sun).

Prince George

In stark contrast to the lowkey life of Camilla's biological grandchildren, her step-grandchildren are known worldwide thanks to their high-profile spots in the royal line of succession. The eldest of her step-grandchildren, Prince George of Wales, was born on July 22, 2013 in London. Though the little prince has no blood connection to Camilla, she was already a well-established member of the family by the time of his birth, having married King Charles III in 2005 (via The Royal Family). 

Prince George has made several public appearances throughout the years, including many full-family affairs where he was joined by his step-grandmother Camilla. These have included the annual Trooping the Colour ceremony and, more recently, the Platinum Jubilee of the Late Queen Elizabeth II (via Hello!). However, Cosmopolitan reports that Prince William has a strained relationship with his stepmother and feels it is important that his children recognize her as the wife of their grandfather, not their step-grandmother.

Luckily, this tension hasn't seemed to pass on to the new generation, as Prince George and his sister Princess Charlotte were spotted greeting Camilla and King Charles warmly at the Princess of Wales's Christmas Carol Concert in December 2022. The King and Queen Consort were filmed leaning down to hug and kiss the youngsters, with King Charles planting two sweet kisses on each of his grandchildren's foreheads. Though they may not call her "Grandmother," it's clear that George and his siblings enjoy an affectionate relationship with Camilla.

Princess Charlotte

Two years after the birth of Prince George, the Prince and Princess of Wales welcomed their second child and Camilla's 7th grandchild, Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Now third in line to the throne, she was born at St. Mary's Hospital in London on May 2, 2015 (via The Royal Family). Though she is her parents' first and only daughter, she is Camilla's third granddaughter and the first born since 2008 (via Town & Country). 

Like her brother, the little princess has already lived a highly publicized life, with her parents greeting journalists and photographers on the front steps of The Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital just 10 hours after her birth. The excitement that awaited the young princess beyond those hospital doors was unlike anything her parents could have anticipated, as she was the first baby girl to be born into the immediate royal family since Princess Anne's birth in 1950 (via Hello!). 

As a woman who has lived a large portion of his life in the royal spotlight, one can imagine that Camilla will have much wisdom to share with her step-granddaughter one day. Their sweet connection was on full display in 2019 when official family portraits were released to celebrate King Charles's III 70th birthday. Naturally, his sons, grandchildren, and wife Camilla were included in the photos. In one snap, the Queen Consort is seen cuddling up to her step-granddaughter and pointing at something in the distance.

Prince Louis

Rounding out the Wales children we have the youngest of the three, Prince Louis Arthur Charles. Following royal tradition, Camilla's 8th grandchild and third step-grandchild was born on April 27, 2018 in The Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital (via The Royal Family). 

The littlest Prince of Wales, now four-years-old, recently stole the hearts of royal spectators after fans noticed his uncanny resemblance to mom Kate Middleton, Princess of Wales. After the mother of three launched her "Shaping Us" campaign by sharing a personal baby photo on Instagram, followers were quick to point out just how similar Kate looks to her youngest son. One commentator said, "I thought it was Prince Louis" (via The List).  

In fact, Prince Louis has become known as something of a scene-stealer. In June of 2022, photographers captured a sweet moment between the young prince and Queen Elizabeth II during the Trooping the Colour ceremony. Looking up at his great-grandmother, Prince Louis teases her with a great big smile, making the Queen break out into a grin as well (via Town & Country). 

Step-grandmother Camilla is not immune to Prince Louis's cuteness either, as evidenced by family photos from 2018. In that same photo shoot released to celebrate King Charles III's 70th birthday, the young Prince Louis is caught reaching toward his grandfather's nose, interrupting what would have been a perfect shot. To his right, Louis's step-grandmother can be seen giggling at the newest addition's adorable antics.

Archie Mountbatten-Windsor

Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was born on May 6, 2019, at Portlant Hospital, an American-owned medical center based in London (via Time). The ginger baby's birth might have been an anxious time for first-time father Prince Harry, but, being Camilla's 9th grandchild and 4th step-grandchild, one can imagine that Archie's step-grandmother was an expert in grandparent protocol by the time of his arrival (via Town & Country).

One way Archie shook up royal protocol, however, is by being the first royal baby in recent memory to forego the front steps of The Lindo Wing. Instead, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex chose to introduce their son to the world at Windsor Castle two days after his birth on May 8, 2019 (via USA Today). In the intervening years, drama between Prince Harry, Meghan, and the royal family has taken the world by storm, especially following the 2022 release of Harry's bestselling and secret-spilling, memoir "Spare" (via Cosmopolitan). 

Today, three-year-old Archie lives on a different continent than his British relatives, happy at home with his family in a seaside suburb of California called Montecito. Sadly, he has not been able to visit with his grandfather and step-grandmother as often as his cousins, but the move has brought him closer to his maternal grandmother, Doria Ragland (via Hello!). In some encouraging news, Town & Country reports that Archie traveled across the Atlantic with his parents to attend Queen Elizabeth II's Platinum Jubilee in the summer of 2022.

Lilibet Lili Diana Mountbatten-Windsor

Last but not least, the youngest of Camilla's grandchildren is Lilibet "Lili" Diana Mountbatten-Windsor. Though her parents have not shared many photos of the one-year-old, Lili began making headlines from the time it was first announced that the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, was pregnant with her second child. During Meghan and Prince Harry's groundbreaking interview with Oprah Winfrey on May 7, 2021, they announced they were expecting a girl (via Evening Standard). 

Just one month later, the Duke and Duchess announced that their baby girl had arrived on Friday, June 4, 2021. Announcing their daughter's name along with the details of her birth, the couple clarified that "Lili is named after her great-grandmother, Her Majesty The Queen, whose family nickname is Lilibet. Her middle name, Diana, was chosen to honor her beloved late grandmother, The Princess of Wales." (via Parents). 

Though the youngest of Camilla's grandchildren now resides in Montecito, California with her family, Town & Country reports that she was present at Queen Elizabeth II's Platinum Jubilee in June of 2022. Occurring in the midst of much drama between Prince Harry and his relatives, the public was kept in the dark about many of the details of Lili's first visit to the U.K., and it is uncertain if Camilla was able to finally meet her newest grandchild during the visit. However, Lili was able to celebrate her first birthday in the U.K. following Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee.

Who will inherit what?

From Lola to baby Lili, the Queen Consort now has 10 grandchildren in her family. With this many young ones wandering around, you might be wondering what will happen to Camilla's vast fortune when her grandchildren come of age? Are there any tiaras in the mix? And who will inherit what? (via Town & Country). 

In order to answer these questions, it's important to understand that Camilla is a blueblood through and through. Contrary to what some may believe, Camilla had a sizeable fortune before she ever met King Charles III. While her father, Major Bruce Shand, made a name for himself in the business world, her mother, Rosalind Cubitt came from a long line of aristocrats (via Cosmopolitan). According to the Independent, Camilla's maternal grandparents left her a whopping inheritance of £500,000. Add that to her current net worth and Camilla's grandchildren are sure to be set for life. 

Among her assets is Ray Mill House, a country estate situated in the rural county of Wiltshire. Camilla swept the £850,000 mansion off the market after divorcing her first husband, Andrew Parker Bowles, and has used it as her private oasis ever since (via Wiltshire Live). Though the details of Camilla's inheritance plans remain private, it wouldn't be unrealistic to imagine Ray Mill House going to Lola, Louis, or Gus Lopes, as the country estate served as the backdrop to their mother Laura's 2006 wedding reception and is sure to hold sentimental value.
