It seems Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall and her family will likely be a in a rather sombre mood at the moment, as it’s been reported that her eldest son has split from his wife of 12 years.

According to alleged reports, Tom Parker Bowles and wife Sarah Buys have called time on their marriage, but are not officially separating.

The pair share two children, and Tom has alleged moved out of the home the family shared into a nearby West London property.

A source reportedly told The Sun, “They are being very clear the separation is not final and they are not getting divorced.

“There is no one else involved. The concern of both Tom and Sara is for the stability and happiness of their children.”

Allegedly, the pair are still expected to attend the royal wedding of the year, when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle say their vows on 19th May.

Tom Parker Bowles is a food critic, and has also starred in BBC2’s MasterChef: The Professionals. He is the only son of Camilla, and her ex-husband Andrew Parker Bowles.

Camilla has one other child, Laura Lopes, Tom’s sister.

In the past, Tom has spoken about the intense media scrutiny on his mother as it was alleged that she was having an affair with Prince Charles.

He’s opened up about the controversial reports in the paper. And he admitted that he tried not to look at any of it.

“I sort of remember not looking at the paper. Because, you know, Jesus, the things that we’ve all said to people that we love … that you wouldn’t want the world reading.

“I just felt p***ed off.

“I wasn’t going to read that sort of stuff about my mother. Just as much as she wouldn’t want to read it about me or my kids certainly wouldn’t want to read it about me.”
