CHAPTER 1

A LITTLE BIT OF HER BIO

Camilla Rosemary Shand was born in London, England on July 17, 1947. Her father was Army Major Bruce Middleton Shand, Vice Lord Lieutenant of East Sussex. After WWII, Bruce became a wine merchant and was later appointed an officer of Her Majesty's Body Guard, according to Biography

Her mother was Rosalind Cubitt, the daughter of 3rd Baron Ashcombe, Roland Cubitt. Therefore, Camilla had enough connections to socialize with members of the British royalty from a very early age. Her family was well-off, so little Camilla also grew up in a seven-bedroom mansion in East Sussex.

Apart from her parents, she also lived with her younger siblings, Annabel Elliot and Mark. Camilla inherited a passion for books and horses from her father as well as a love for parties and socializing. Since she was young, she knew what she wanted for her life.

The girl was not interested in pursuing a professional career; instead, she wanted her mother's life: a country home, children, and a military man as a husband. Nevertheless, she attended Queens Gate School in the south of Kensington. She then traveled to Switzerland in 1964 to finish school at Mon Fertile, and after that, she had an additional educational polish at the Institut Britannique in Paris.
