When Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles started getting cosy all those years ago, you could imagine their desperation for wanting to keep things ‘behind closed doors’.

There has been a never-ending run of speculation about how the future king and his then-lover were able to carry on without too much media attention (it wasn’t until long after the prince and Princess Diana had parted ways did things really come out in the open) and one such ‘helper’ was said to be Camilla’s younger sister, Annabel Elliot.

According to the Daily Mail, Prince Charles has paid around £1.5 million (A$2.53 million) to Camilla’s sister for ‘goods and design services’ over the years, which some suggest is partly for her assistance in helping him carry out his affair with Camilla.

Prince Charles and Camilla have been married since 2005, so what has happened for people to start talking again?

Well, it appears that Annabel is putting the finishing touches on her latest design work, commissioned by the Duchess of Cornwall — a pub-cum-hotel in the centre of Prince Charles’s model village Poundbury on the outskirts of Dorchester.

There are several reasons why this development is drawing bemused grins from the gallery. For one, the building is said to resemble a place which the prince has great sentiment attached, the Ritz Hotel at Mayfair. The significance? Presenting point two, it was celebrating Annabel’s 50th birthday at the Ritz in 1999 that Camilla and Charles were photographed in public for the first time together.

This new pub-hotel is to be called The Duchess of Cornwall in a nod from Annabel to her older sister, but if you got caught up in the significance of it all, the name could serve as a constant reminder to the Duke and Duchess of those early days together.

Further criticism comes because the Duke and Duchess rarely commission anyone other than Annabel to do such work for them, but surely that’s their right…?

What do you think of the claims that the prince is only using his sister-in-law because of things done in the past? Should it matter that the Duke and Duchess routinely engage the same interior designer for their private work?

    The house of Saxe Coburg Gotha have always been so. The preservation of lineage, fortune and self are the primary considerations. The public good and the nation only when those ambitions coincide with those of the ‘family’. So this is a trifle when you examine the history of their betrayals.

    What malicious gossip mongers you are! It is a great pity that you can’t write about something intelligent. Dragging up perceived personal private information is despicable. Mind your own business!

    No respect for Charles or Camilla and a lot of respect for Diana -thanks goodness William and Harry have inherited her attributes

      Like her shagging around and leaving the kids with the grandparents. Diana was no saint either. She was human as is Charles and Camilla.

    Who cares? Neither Charles nor Camilla are even worth thinking about. All thought should go to the memory of Diana and the future of William and Harry and their children.

    Just get on with your own life – it’s so long ago and won’t change anything. Diana messed around too but everyone forgets that

    Neither party is innocent not Charles or Diana. I have no respect for Charles with all his lies and deceit. Diana for all her vindictiveness is not innocent either. Diana could have taken the children and left Charles she did not want a divorce because she suffered through her own Parents divorce till finally the Queen demanded that Charles and Diana divorce. With all the eligible men in England why Dodi causing more concern for her children both mentally and in politics. In trying to bring down the House Of Windsor Diana risked her life and that of her children.
