Prince Charles (72) and Duchess Camilla (74) have been married for over 16 years! The royal couple celebrated their wedding on April 9, 2005: the two married with their family members at Town Hall near Windsor Castle – after which they celebrated their love with a mass at St George’s Chapel. But the wedding was almost not possible: Camila got sick shortly before the wedding!

According to a report from the magazine Vanity Fair Camila suffered from severe sinusitis at the time of the wedding. Lucia Santa Cruz, the couple’s friend, remembers the days before the big party. ‘It was very cold and exhausting’Lucia remembered and explained the condition of the bride shortly before her wedding: “She could not get out of bed in the truest sense of the word.”

According to tradition, Camilla spent the night before the wedding not with Charles, but with her sister Annabelle Elliot at Clarence House in London. According to media reports, Camilla owes her sister that she mustered the strength the next day and was able to say yes to the Prince of Wales. Anyway, you can’t see the bitter cold at all in the 74-year-old’s wedding photos today…
