Charles married Karen in June 2011 at Althorp, the Spencers' family estate in Northamptonshire. They share an eight-year-old daughter, Charlotte. Charles, 56, was previously married to Victoria Lockwood, with whom he shares four children, and second wife Caroline Freud, with whom he has two children.

Karen said: "I'm a fixer. I'm hugely overconfident and I probably underestimated the complexities of being a stepparent [to Kitty, 29, Eliza and Amelia, 28, Louis, 26, Edmund, 16, and Lara, 14].
"Charles gave me the best advice, which is to say nothing and do nothing about anything, ever."

She continued: "I don't get to have an opinion about his children. I can have an opinion and give it to him, in our bedroom, but not to them. I just wish I could say I'd adhered to it the whole time. Stepparenting plays to Charles's strengths and my weaknesses…
"Charles's older four were pretty much grown up when I came on the scene, so my job, which I hope I've achieved, was simply to make everyone feel welcome."
Karen went on to admit that her daughter Charlotte is "pretty much an only child, but she adores her big brothers and sisters". The philanthropist and founder of Whole Child charity is also a mum to her elder daughters Emma, 22, and Kate, 19, who "adore" their stepfather Charles.
