Patrick “Paddy” Haverson, a former PR director who worked with Charles from 2004 to 2012, also commented on the strength Charles and Camilla derive from their relationship. “They loved each other,” Haverson told ABC News. “She was a source of great support, comfort and love. They had the same sense of humor. They just fit together perfectly.”
