“Laura Rose Lopes (nee Parker Bowles) was born January 1, 1978, the second child and only daughter of Camilla and Andrew Parker Bowles. The Parker Bowles’ married in 1973, per Town & Country, but only after Camilla “ended” a brief but significant romantic relationship with then-Prince Charles of Wales. Although it’s believed Charles and Camilla did, indeed, suspend their romance — at least at the time Charles married first wife, Lady Diana Spencer, biographers debate how long that suspension lasted. Indeed, at the time of her wedding to Charles, Diana suspected her husband-to-be was still very much involved with Camilla, at least on an emotional level.
Lopes, who reportedly modeled underwear for Calvin Klein in his youth, is descended from the wealthy and prominent Astor family through his mother’s side and from the 2nd Baron Roborough, aka Massey Henry Edgecumbe Lopes, through his father’s side, according to The Peerage. Although some speculate that Laura’s husband stands to inherit the title of Baron, which would mean that Laura would become a Baroness, that is unlikely since Harry’s late uncle inherited the title upon the death of the 2nd Baron. Nevertheless, Lopes is a successful businessman in his own right as the CEO of the solar company Eden Renewables, which drew fire in 2014 for its plans to build a large solar farm in Wiltshire (via Daily Mail Online).”
