Celebrities With Royal Connections: What Does It Take To Be a Friend of a Royal
ROD STEWART AND PRINCE CHARLES
Prince Charles has a few friends, and Rod Stewart is one of them. The British rock singer has performed at several royal family parties, so it is no surprise that he has such a strong bond with the Prince of Wales. He was once honored with the position of CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire). Even his wife, Penny, who is a TV presenter is an acquaintance of Camilla as she once made a joke about sitting next to the Prince at a dinner.
As reported by Mirror, when Penny mentioned that she sat next to Prince Charles, Camilla retorted saying:
"Yes, he told me and said what a really lovely evening it had been, particularly sitting next to you."
Penny also once stood up for the Prince at a special to mark his 70th birthday party. She noted that the antagonistic way the press has been seeing him is "totally unfair."
