Queen to Camilla: Hi

Prince Charles’s longtime companion Camilla Parker Bowles is said to have come in from the cold — the Royal Family’s chill, that is. At long last, Queen Elizabeth met briefly with Parker Bowles, in a move that is being interpreted by some royal watchers as possibly clearing the way for a marriage between the Queen’s son and Camilla. The Queen has long refused to acknowledge Camilla’s existence, let alone the 52-year-old divorcee’s relationship with Charles. The encounter took place Saturday at Charles’s Highgrove estate during the 60th birthday party for Greece’s exiled King Constantine. The meeting was described as amicable.
