17th wedding anniversary to The Prince of Wales

This week marks Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles’ 17th wedding anniversary – where the heck did that time go!? – but, while the happy couple will be celebrating nearly two decades of wedded bliss, many royal fans are still wondering: Why wasn’t the Queen at their wedding? Yep, despite being the head of the Monarchy and Prince Charles’ mum, Her Majesty did not attend his 2005 wedding to Camilla, nor did his father, Prince Philip. To recap, Charles and Camilla met in 1970 and dated for a short while, before his marriage to Princess Diana and her marriage to Andrew Parker Bowles.
