What does the stepbrother of Princes William and Harry look like now? This is Tom Parker Bowles
Something new is always coming out about the British royal family! This is what Prince Charles' stepson, more specifically Prince William and Harry's half-brother, looks like now!
We all know about the intense love story between Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles. The two have been in love for decades, even when they were both involved in different marriages. Before officially becoming a husband and wife, Camilla was married to Andrew Parker Bowles, a wealthy military man. Their relationship resulted in two children: Tom Parker Bowles and his sister Laura.
On April 8, 2005, Prince Charles, heir to the British Crown, was to marry Camilla. So her two children became her stepchildren. Thus, Prince William and Prince Harry, the boys of the late Princess Diana, the first wife of Prince Charles, have a half-brother, Tom, but also a sister, Laura.
Tom Parker Bowles is known to be 45 and has written no less than seven cookbooks so far and was a food editor for Esquire magazine. He also participated in several television cooking shows. Tom Parker Bowles is married to Sara Buys, a fashion editor with whom he has two children. His stepbrothers, Prince Harry and Prince William, also came to their wedding.
In addition, Tom Parker Bowles said at one point that he did not feel part of the royal family. His mother is married to the future king of England, but this does not mean that he is also involved in this family, in this huge responsibility to the country, to the people: “Our mother married him, she is part (of the royal family ). We are ordinary children. We're just like that, besides. "
Prince Charles has the power to grant his stepchildren noble titles once he ascends the throne, so Tom may at some point also receive a noble title.
