It is not uncommon to see the two duchesses side by side at official events. Camilla Parker Bowles and Kate Middleton seem to get along very well. So much so that the Duchess of Cornwall trusted her daughter-in-law to do her portrait, as part of the very special issue of Country Life magazine, published on Wednesday 13th July. Indeed, on the occasion of his 75th birthday (July 17), Prince Charles’ wife dressed up for a few days in the editor-in-chief’s costume and thus made the front page of the edition.

At the same time, an upcoming documentary produced by the ITV channel and called “Camilla’s Country Life” immortalized the backstage of this experience. In an excerpt, published on Twitter on July 12 by host Chris Ship, we next see Camille Parker Bowles express herself during her photo shoot with Kate Middleton, as the photographer.

“[Kate] took very good pictures and she does it very naturally …, enthuses the Duchess of Cornwall in the series. We had a lot of fun doing it.” And to continue: “It was very relaxed, and of course very nice on the part of the Duchess of Cambridge. She came with her camera and she is a very good photographer. And it was all very casual – there wasn’t a lot of haircuts and makeup. It all happened in the garden, with a lot of laughs – it was a fun way to do it.”
