She admitted that she could not have survived it had she not received the support of her family. Referring to those times, Camilla said that it was highly unpleasant and she would not wish it on even her worst enemy. So, what helped her wade the storm? The Duchess of Cornwall said that it was her upbringing that had taught her to refrain from complaining. It taught her to move on and it saw her through the crisis, The Sun claimed.
Camilla also credited using her sense of humor to see the brighter side of life. She said that one has to laugh through most of the things when they do not happen the way one wants them to.
