The other family of Carlos de Inglaterra, which is made up of the closest relatives of his wife Camila, try to live as far as possible from the media spotlight despite the fact that she is now married to the heir to the throne. Tom Parker, the elder of the Duchess of Cornwall's two sons, tries to go unnoticed more than ever these days when misfortune has come into his life. Alice Procope, his girlfriend, has died at the age of 42, a victim of cancer that was diagnosed last summer. The news has now become known although it happened on the 17th
Tom Parker Bowles and the journalist, a mother of three children, had a relationship for two years after the godson of Prince Charles separated from his wife, Sarah Buys. Known occupationally as Alice Horton, Tom Parker Bowles' partner was the granddaughter of the second Viscount Ingleby and had three young children as a result of her relationship with her ex-husband, Robert Procope, grandson of Baron Robert Wigram. According to British media, the diagnosis came late due to the health emergency situation caused by the covid-19 pandemic. It was last August that he was diagnosed with cancer and by then it was too late.
As the eldest son of Camilla from Cornwall and a well-known food journalist in England, Tom Parker Bowles is no stranger to media attention and controversy. A year ago his name appeared in the newspapers for a different reason: a scandal related to a pork rind business that he co-founded in 2011 with two friends. Mr Trotter's Great British Pork Crackling, as the product is called, prided itself on its traceability: the rinds were made only from pigs from British farms certified in animal welfare. But, according to The Times , the company was forced to admit that, for some time now, it uses mostly foreign pigs: specifically, Danish, German and Dutch.
Tom Parker has been controversial in his youth. In an interview in The Lady where they asked him what was the most unpleasant thing that they had called him, he replied: “There is nothing that can offend me. They have told me everything ”. He's had to watch the tabloids prey on him in his younger years and accuse him of addictions.
Restaurant critic at The Mail on Sunday and contributor to Esquire , among other outlets, has won awards, published eight books, and He has participated as a judge in television cooking competitions such as MasterChef. In the interviews, he is surprised by a certain irreverence and by his tendency to self-criticism; he has stated, for example, that his time at Eton and Oxford was "totally mediocre." Nor does he avoid questions about Camilla, whom he defines as an exemplary mother, "who never judges." "What pisses me off the most is when someone who doesn't know her says she's been a bad mother," she told The Telegraph in 2006. As for her stepfather, whom she calls sir and claims to "adore," she considers him to be an excellent king. In 2005, Parker Bowles married fashion journalist Sara Buys in a ceremony that had among his guests – in addition to his stepbrothers – Mick Jagger or Hugh Grant. They were the parents of a girl and a boy born in 2007 and 2010.
Their sister Laura, an art curator, has a much lower profile; So much so that some media refer to her as "the secret stepsister." Her existence is far from a secret, but Laura is much more discreet and less inclined to make headlines than her brother. She studied at Oxford, was a fellow at the Guggenheim Museum in Venice, and in 2005 opened her own gallery, Eleven Fine Art, which she directed for a decade. Camilla's daughter is the mother of three children, the result of her marriage to Harry Lopes, an aristocrat. Tom and Laura do not have a noble title. Tom said without any acrimony on Good Morning Britain two years ago: “We are the commoner children. We are on the side. ”
