Among the many celebrity guests and members of the royal family attending King Charles’ coronation was Camilla, Queen Consort‘s ex-husband, Andrew Parker Bowles. The retired British Army officer was seen arriving at Westminster Abbey in London on Saturday ahead of the official ceremony.

Camilla was married to Bowles from 1973 to 1995, before the two divorced after 21 years of marriage. The couple had two children — Tom Parker Bowles and Laura Parker Bowles — before they separated.

A decade later after her divorce, Camilla became engaged to Charles, with whom she’s had a longtime friendship, in February 2005. The two were officially married a few months later, in April.

After marrying Charles, Camilla became the Duchess of Cornwall, a title she held until Queen Elizabeth II‘s death in September 2022. Following her husband’s accession as King Charles III, Camila became known as Queen Consort.

Following his marriage to Camilla, Bowles married his longtime friend, Rosemary Alice Pitman, in 1996. The couple even attended the wedding of Charles and Camilla and remained married until Pitman’s death in 2010.
