Before she married Prince Charles and became the Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla Parker Bowles had a whole other life! She was previously married to retired British Army officer Andrew Parker Bowles between 1973 and 1995 and the former couple had two children together, Tom Parker Bowles and Laura Lopes!
While Tom, 42, and Laura, 39, usually try to stay out of the spotlight, they both attended their mom’s 70th birthday celebration on Saturday, July 15 — which was put hosted by Prince Charles at his Highgrove home in Gloucestershire, the Daily Mail reported. Camilla’s stepchildren — Prince Harry and Prince William also attended the party, as well as William’s wife Kate Middleton.

Laura (née Parker Bowles) took the time out of her busy schedule as a working mom — she enjoys a successful career as an art curator — to celebrate her mom’s special day. She married her husband, chartered accountant Harry Lopes in 2006 and the couple shares three children together — nine-year-old daughter Eliza and eight-year-old twin sons Gus and Louis, though it is unclear if her husband and children attended the event.
Tom is 42 years old and he works as a food writer and critic — and he’s also the author of published five cookbooks. He married his wife, fashion editor Sara Parker Bowles, in 2005 and the couple shares nine-year-old daughter Lola and seven-year-old son Freddy together. He’s currently filming the upcoming Australian cooking reality TV series Family Food Fight as a guest judge, but he flew back to London because he would never miss his mom’s birthday party.
“When you get offered these lovely opportunities [to work on Family Food Fight] you have to fiddle around with your diary and my mother is 70 this month,” Tom told the Australian newspaper Herald Sun. “We have a 70th birthday party planned and there is no way I could have missed it. We are a close family.”
