If there’s been one bone of contention between Camilla Parker Bowles and Prince Charles over the years, it’s been her smoking. While Camilla had been a lifelong smoker, Charles reportedly despised the habit. According to Express, Brian Hoey’s book Not In Front Of The Corgis detailed the very specific instructions Camilla had for servants when it came to her cigarettes. “Footmen are instructed to place silver cigarette boxes containing her favorite brand [of cigarette] in every room,” Hoey wrote, with those same footmen also ensuring ashtrays are immediately emptied the second she exits a room. In addition, “matchbox holders in solid silver containers are placed upright near at hand with one match half withdrawn so she does not have to scrabble about looking for a light.”

She ultimately did quit, reported the Daily Mail, after developing a “persistent cough which she couldn’t shake off.” She was finally able to kick the habit during a trip to the Himalayas with her husband’s “favorite health guru, Dr Mosaraf Ali.”

As she reportedly joked to a friend, “It wasn’t so much me giving up smoking, rather smoking giving up on me.”
