Andrew Parker Bowles, the former husband of Queen Camilla is confirmed to be in a relationship with a British TV star.

Camilla and Andrew Parker Bowles were married for 21 years and have two children together. They divorced in 1995.

Anne Robinson, 79, the former presenter of The Weakest Link, has confirmed she is in a relationship with Andrew 84.

Robinson was recently asked whether she was dating the former Household Cavalry officer, who was married to the Queen for 22 years.

She gave a sharp response: “Yes. Full stop. Mind your own business.”

The TV star acknowledged she had not dated anyone for some time, noting: “If you don’t drink, you’re not as reckless, are you?”

She continued to tell Saga Magazine: “I’m a great believer in surprising yourself by taking risks.

“Personally and professionally. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

“If the worst that can happen is you get some egg on your face, that’s not terrible is it?”

Robinson suggested that dating can be easier in older age, adding: “You’re much more selective about what you’re going to get into a tizz about.

“Nothing matters that much. You’re not going to change.”

The pair are thought to have been dating for 20 months but have not been seen together in public.

A mutual friend said: “They have judiciously avoided being photographed together as they both wanted to keep this quiet for as long as possible.

Sally Bedell Smith, the biographer of 'Prince Charles: The Passions and Paradoxes of an Improbable Life: In the Shadow of the Throne', the Princess Royal and Andrew met in 1970, roughly two years before Charles first met Camilla, according to MyLondon.

Smith told The Mirror that Anne and Andrew likely met at the Royal Ascot, after which Andrew was invited to Windsor to spend time with the Royal Family. However, with Andrew being a Catholic, it was always unlikely that their romance was going to blossom into anything more serious.

Anne and Andrew's relationship eventually wound down, but the two remained close friends afterwards, and can even be often spotted together today.
