Camilla Parker Bowles, who’s currently touring the U.S. with husband Prince Charles, can add yet another title to her list: Mother of the bride.

Her daughter, Laura Parker Bowles, has announced that she is engaged to her longtime boyfriend Harry Lopes, a former Calvin Klein model.

Camilla told reporters on Wednesday that she’s “over the moon” at the news, as she headed for lunch at the White House with President and Mrs. Bush.

Lopes left the catwalk after graduating from the University of Edinburgh, and he now works as an accountant in London. Like Princes William and Harry, Laura’s beau attended Eton College. He’s also the heir to a 3,000-acre Scottish estate. Laura, 27, manages an art gallery in London’s Belgravia area.

Laura is Camilla’s only daughter, but in September – only five months after Prince Charles and Camilla tied the knot – her son, Tom Parker Bowles, married his girlfriend, Sarah Buys.
