Inside the glamorous life of Harry and William’s ‘forgotten’ step-sister who’s a regular at Royal events

MOST second marriages often see the introduction of new family members and Prince Charles' marriage to wife Camilla Parker-Bowles was no different, with Camilla's two children being welcomed into the fold.

Camilla is mum to son Tom Parker-Bowles, 46, and daughter Laura Lopes, 43, who she shares with Andrew Parker-Bowles, 81 – her first husband who she was married to for over 20 years.

But while you might have forgotten about them, both Tom and Laura have been regulars at Royal events over the years, with Laura even given the likes of Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle a run for their money in the style stakes.

Who is Camilla's daughter Laura Lopes?

She first made her public debut with the Royal family at her mother's wedding to Prince Charles in 2005, where she was seen cosying up to her new step-family, including Prince William and Prince Harry, in the photos.

Since then, Laura likes to live her life away from the Palace and the public eye, but that doesn't mean it isn't still pretty glamorous.

Laura is an established art curator and after working as a motoring correspondent for high-end magazine Tatler in 2001, she turned her attention to art galleries.

The Duchess of Cornwall's daughter initially managed The Space Gallery, located in Belgravia, London, before going on to co-found and become gallery director of Eleven Fine Art for 11 years.

Now, she heads up her own exhibitions and is partial to the odd red carpet appearance too and has been known to rub shoulders with a celeb or two

Laura has previously attended major film premieres including the world premiere of James Bond movie Skyfall at the Tate Modern in 2012.

When she's not taking on the art scene or red carpets, you can find Laura carrying out her parenting duties as she is mum to three kids.

She shares daughter Eliza, 13, and twin boys Gus and Louis, 11 with husband Harry Lopes.

Harry is a chartered accountant, the grandson of a Baron and an ex Calvin Klein model, who she wed in 2006 while wearing an Anne Valentine dress.

Anne Valentine was the designer of Camilla's dress when she wed Prince Charles a year before Laura headed down the aisle.

Both William and Harry were guests at her wedding, with Laura making sure to attend both their weddings years later.

In fact, her daughter Eliza was a bridesmaid when William married Kate in 2011 and when Harry tied the knot with Meghan in 2018, Laura was among the guests in attendance.

She looked lovely in a green printed dress and black netted fascinator and was joined by her husband Harry for the ceremony at Windsor Castle.

Who is Camilla's son Tom Parker-Bowles?

Like Laura, her older brother Tom is often seen catching up with the Royal family from time to time and makes sure to stop by big events involving the Palace.

He too worked for Tatler magazine like his sister as the magazine's food columnist. Tom is now a British writer and food critic, has penned five of his own cookbooks and previously made an appearance on Masterchef.

When he was younger, Tom attended Eton – the same school as William and Harry – before going on to study at Oxford University.

Meanwhile, an expert has claimed Prince William ‘auditioned’ Kate Middleton to be his wife and working member of Royal Family.

Plus in more Royal family news, Brits want Prince William to become King over Charles when Queen's reign ends, a new poll has revealed.

And a Royal expert suggests Meghan Markle is using new book to show how ‘upset’ Harry was to be stripped of his military titles.
