Theirs is a loving yet private marriage. However in a recent British publication, Prince Charles gave a unique glimpse of his deep affection for wife Camilla.
In an extensive interview with Vanity Fair the heir to the throne spoke about how his marriage has aided him greatly, both personally and in the public eye.
He said: "Having somebody who obviously supports you and is on your side and understands is hugely valuable.
"And anybody who has that knows only too well it makes the whole difference. She's my eyes and ears as well."
Speaking at his Highgrove estate in Gloucestershire, the 61-year-old also spoke of his aims to be "the defender of nature", continuing his strong support for environmental causes when he accedes the throne.
