12 SEPTEMBER 2002
A niece of Prince Charles’s companion Camilla Parker Bowles has stripped off for a society magazine. Emma Parker Bowles is portrayed wearing just a pair of goggles in the latest issue of Tatler.
The 26-year-old blonde has written a motoring column in the mag for the past two years, the text for which is usually accompanied by a photo of her and the car. Her latest article, in which she reviews the Smart Crossblade, is illustrated with a shot of her naked.
In the column Emma jokes about the advantages of nudity if you don’t have much fashion sense. “Sometimes I don’t get dressed at all,” she reports tongue in cheek, adding, “and some of my favourite pastimes feel better undertaken in the nude.”
Emma, who in the past has made public her struggles with alcohol and drug abuse, is the daughter of Camilla’s former brother-in-law, Richard Parker Bowles.
