Nice interview by Judith Woods in The Telegraph today with Tom Parker-Bowles, son of Camilla, in which Woods asks if it is true that he calls Prince Charles, his stepfather, Sir?
“Oh yes,” he says heartily. “But it’s not any sort of obligation, it’s just a nickname really, like Bob or Jim. When we were little, my mother would tell my sister and I that Sir was coming to visit, so the name stuck and to call him anything else would be very odd and unnatural.”
On the subject of the young royals, he says: "As for William and Harry, they’ve got very busy lives so our paths tend to cross occasionally if I’m visiting my mum at Clarence House. Kate is lovely; she has impeccable manners and is sweet and graceful – everything we could hope for in a princess.”
