According to the Express, an internet user posted on Quora: "The Prince and Princess of Wales had as much in common as chalk and cheese.

"Charles was interested in intellectual pursuits, polo, painting, gardening, fishing, hiking, the opera and similar things.

"She apparently loathed all activities involving the outdoors and horses."

The user went on to claim that Camilla had much more in common with Charles.

Charles was then forced to leave to serve in the Royal Navy for eight months and when he returned, Camilla had become engaged to someone else.

She married Andrew Parker Bowles in 1972, but they divorced in 1995 while Charles divorced Diana in 1996.

In 1994, Charles admitted in an interview with Jonathan Dimbleby that the relationship between him and Camilla rekindled after his marriage had "irretrievably broken down" in 1986.
