Prince William and Harry’s secret relationship with long forgotten famous step-brother

The relationship and its increasingly tense status between Prince William and Harry is often discussed, but most people may be unaware that the pair do in fact have other siblings.

In fact, William and Harry have two more siblings, a step-brother and step-sister, that most people are unaware of.

When Prince Charles married Camilla Parker Bowles in April 2005, the brothers gained a new extended family in the form of step siblings, Laura Lopes and Tom Parker Bowles.

Camilla had two children from her first marriage to husband, Andrew.

And Laura and Tom are very much part of the family and have even attended several high profile royal events and have been included in official royal photographs, like at the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, with their children even part of the bridal party.

And both Laura and Tom were also in attendance at Prince Harry’s wedding to Meghan Markle.




Who is Tom Parker Bowles

Prince William and Harry’s step-brother Tom is an extremely talented and well known food writer and has even published seven cookbooks.

And chances are you’ve already seen him on TV and just never knew the royal connection, thanks to his frequent appearances on the hit TV cooking show MasterChef.

He’s also a TV and radio regular, with his own show on the Good Food Channel. He also presents LBC Radio’s Food and Drink programme and was a judge on the ITV series Food Glorious Food.

He has two children, Lola and Freddy, from his first marriage to magazine editor Sara Buys.

The couple split in 2018, and he began dating former journalist Alice Procope, before she tragically died last month on March 17 after a short battle with cancer.

Laura Lopes

Tom’s sister Laura, originally worked in Tatler magazine, before moving into the art world, co-founding London’s Eleven Gallery in 2005, where she was also director.
