<p id=”par-7_30″>According to Robert Hardman, author of <em>The Making of a King: King Charles III and the Modern Monarchy</em>, Queen Camilla doesn’t “push” the king’s “boundaries,” especially those with his grandchildren. </p>

<p id=”par-8_33″>The queen “knows the sort of boundaries” King Charles has, Hardman said (via <a href=”https://people.com/queen-camilla-doesnt-get-into-king-charles-space-with-grandchildren-knows-boundaries-8426397″ target=”_blank” rel=”noreferrer noopener”><em>People</em></a>). “She wouldn’t want to be getting into the King’s space with his grandchildren. She’s not going to push herself.” </p>

<p id=”par-9_32″>Hardman went on to note Queen Camilla’s “still very keen to maintain. She’s still got her own family. That’s very important to her, and she appreciates how important it is for him.”</p>

<h2>The king spends ‘a lot of time’ at Windsor near most of his grandchildren </h2>

<p id=”par-10_31″>Hardman continued, describing King Charles as a “doting grandfather” to William and Kate’s three kids. Now, perhaps more than ever, he has the opportunity to see George, Charlotte, and Louis more. </p>

<p id=”par-11_26″>The reason is that, according to the author, King Charles spends “a lot more time at Windsor [Castle],” near the Wales family home, “than anyone expected.” </p>

<p id=”par-12_25″>“Normally, he’s often there on a Thursday and a Friday,” Hardman said of King Charles. “Obviously, the Waleses are within walking distance of the castle.” </p>

<p id=”par-13_24″>William, Kate, George, Charlotte, and Louis live at Adelaide Cottage located in Windsor Great Park, which is part of the royal family’s Windsor estate. </p>

<p id=”par-14_21″>King Charles, the author concluded, has “never really had that sort of proximity to the younger family. Now, there’s more overlap.”</p>

<p id=”par-15_23″>Meanwhile, the king’s two other grandchildren, Archie and Lili, reside in Montecito, California, and haven’t been to England since 2022’s Platinum Jubilee Weekend. </p>
