Prince Charles Divorce From Camilla Parker-Bowles Coming Due to Barbara Streisand Affair?

A divorce for Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles may be coming soon amid reports of Charles having an affair with Barbara Streisand.

Apparently Camilla learned of the alleged affair and confronted Charles about it. He not only admitted to it but also laughed, informing her that his life would have been “so much better” if he married Streisand instead of her.

“Charles had been infatuated with the legendary songstress for years when they reportedly hooked up in 1994 at LA’s posh Bel-Air hotel for a private afternoon tea date that lingered on…and on. And it wasn’t their only secret romantic rendezvous!” claims Globe magazine in its upcoming October 13 edition.

“Now, his decades-long obsession with Streisand, now 72, is coming back to haunt to haunt the Royal as he plunges into a messy $350 Million divorce from his second wife Camilla.”

This isn’t the first time the alleged affair has come to light, though. A tell-all biography, “Barbara: The Way She Is,”published in 2006 says that Charles was involved with Streisand at the same time that he was intimate with Camilla.

The book by Christopher Anderson says that Charles and Streisand met in 1974 on the set of Funny Lady, where they shared some coffee and a 20-minute conversation.

They saw each other again in London 20 years later, and then became close when she attended a gala in his honor in November of 1994. They soon had a “tea date” at the Bel-Air hotel, with the manager being quoted as saying that “From what I understand, he was absolutely besotted with Barbra Streisand. Did anyone ever turn Charles down? Not to my knowledge.” 

The book added: “According to a former member of the household staff, Prince Charles had gone to elaborate lengths to keep Fleet Street and, more important, his then mistress Camilla Parker Bowles from finding out. ‘The prince and Miss Streisand were very affectionate toward each other,” the staff member said. “I entered the room at one point and obviously interrupted them … they were quite flustered.'”

More recently, Globe magazine said in its October 6 edition that Queen Elizabeth is facilitating a divorce between Charles and Camilla.

“The 88 year old ailing Monarch drew up a plan pledging $50 million of her personal cash and a $10 million estate as a divorce settlement for 65 year old Charles’ scheming second wife,” Globe claimed. 

The magazine also alleged that Elizabeth has aides shopping for a private island that she can exile Camilla to after the divorce goes through.
