Prince Charles calls Camilla ‘mehbooba’ in first joint outing since ‘Queen’ announcement


Prince Charles referred to his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall as his “Mehbooba” in their first joint outing since it was announced that the latter would be known as Queen Consort instead of Princess Consort when he takes over the throne.

It was recently revealed by a friend of the Prince of Wales that he has a special moniker for his wife- “Mehbooba,” an Urdu word that means “my beloved” or “my darling.” The pal had said about Charles’s feelings about Camilla not getting the right to be called Queen until now, “He loves his wife, he adores her. He calls her his “mehbooba” – “my beloved” [in Urdu]. How could he be a true husband and endorse a situation when she was asked to be a second-class citizen?”
